This week is a group week for the Odd Spirit Mod Squad, meaning we are focusing on INFINITE as a whole instead of the individual members. We are taking a look at fan meetings and fan service.
The fan meeting I chose to look at is the Melon Premier Showcase from the "Bad" promotions and release of their "Reality" EP.
Reasons I chose it:
1. The "Bad" era is quite possibly my favorite INFINITE era ever.
I LOVE "BAD". It's an incredible song, gets me pumped, hyped, feels mysterious, and they are all so fierce in it. The choreography for "Bad" is so good and intense.
I also happen to love "Between You & Me" and when I say I love it, I mean I really really LOVE it! This song is so beautiful and the vocals of the members are so well suited for this song. But, Sungkyu's high notes really effect me most. OMG! Have you heard this song? The lyrics are so good too. It all just hits me in the feels and I listen to this song on repeat at least once a week.
In addition to the actual music, I love the style and concept of the as well.
2. The interview.
I enjoyed watching the interview portion of the showcase. The moment when Sungkyu slyly leaves the stage (presumably to use the restroom) and reappears moments later as if nothing happened was cute.
The MC had to ask Dongwoo to raise his hand when he wanted to speak because he was "surprising" her with his out bursts and answering out of turn. Dongwoo's face in response was funny.
At one point the MC asks if the members looked at comments on the teaser images, and which comment stood out the most. Their varied answers is a hoot.
Getting to see how much they love their fans and the reactions of the fans was also cute.
3. The performances...
Again, this is my favorite era, so that's a no brainer.
4. Emotional Woohyun.
The part of the showcase that really made the decision for me was Woohyun's teary-eyed moments. When "Bad" was released, it had been a year since the their last comeback. Woohyun admitted he was holding back tears during the first performance but really struggled at the beginning of the interview to keep his emotions in check. He missed the fans and getting to see them all there in support of the group's comeback was a poignent moment for him.
What's even better is when Dongwoo and Hoya rushed in with tissues to help him as he was overcome. I seriously just wanted to hug the kid.
You can find both halves of the showcase below, with English subs. Make sure to have CC turned on for the subs. Enjoy!
