The girls of Girls Generation are off to great start on their 1st Asia Tour Concert “Into the New World”. They held their first performance that lasted three hours in Shanghai, China on April 17th.
This was their first solo concert in China. It was similar to the girls’ concert in Seoul last February. They performed many of their hit songs such as “Gee”, “Genie”, “Kissing You”, and “Oh!”.
Each of the members really showed off their talents through their own renditions of very popular American songs. For example, Soo-yeong received the crowd’s approval for her performance of Britney Spears’ “If You Seek Amy”. Yoo-ri was joined by SHINee member Min-ho for her performance of Ciara’s “1, 2 Step”, Yoona was joined by SHINee’s Tae-min and Key for her take on “If You Know a Good Person, Hook Me Up” (‘좋은 사람 있으면 소개시켜줘’) which was recently covered by Rumblefish. Of course the boys of SHINee also had their moment to shine by performing their hit song “Ring Ding Dong”.
Despite the fact that these were Chinese fans, reports indicate that they mastered the art of cheering “like Korean fans” perfectly. (KBS)
