Living up to the title ‘Carpe Diem’ which means “Seizing the moment” in Latin aphorism, IN2IT really did seize every moment of each fan that met them during their visit for tour here in Malaysia on 4th February 2018. How can you not fall in love with these 8 appealing gentlemen from IN2IT?
They appeared with full of charm in front of their fans during an open Press Conference at Pavilion Centre Court, grabbing all IN2U’s heart without warning when they started their PC with a sexy performance of ‘Cadillac’. You can say all the audience on the floor were screaming along to the hot stage!
IN2IT consists of 8 members; Jiahn, Yeontae, Inho, Hyunuk, Isaac, Inpyo, Jinsub, and Sunghyun. The group was created through the survival show Boys24 and theydebuted under MMO Entertainment on October 26, 2017. What makes this group special is that one of the members, Isaac is a Malaysian from Sabah. Yes, the patriotism in our hearts have been triggered at this point. ^^ We are proud to see our fellow Malaysian, Isaac, performing on the stage with the other members!
The press conference started with IN2IT greeting their fans with a Chinese New Year song and followed by their self-introduction. The boys were so cute as the try to include as many as Malay and Chinese sentences in their introduction.
During the PC, the MC asked Isaac how does it feel to perform in Malaysia, and he mentioned that he is so proud and happy to get the chance to perform in his own country. As they are just newly debuted, he said that they will work harder to achieve No. 1 in the future.
Since Isaac is the only Non-Korean in the group, other members mentioned that Isaac has been teaching them many Chinese and Malay words to show off to their Malaysian IN2U. The boys also said that they really wish to visit Isaac’s home town in Sabah if they ever have free time for a casual trip. They would love to experience Kota Kinabalu and stay at Isaac’s house!
To tease their fans’ hearts on their next adventure after this, IN2IT also mentioned that are preparing for their 2nd album comeback while having their tour. They really hope the fans will anticipate their comeback this time as they are working hard on it.
IN2IT first Showcase in Malaysia was held on the next day in PJ Live Arts, Petaling Jaya. The venue was full house with IN2U not only from Malaysia but also from other countries. The boys performed their songs from Carpe Diem mini album; Amazing, Paradise and Cadillac. They also performed “Rising Star”, the theme song of Boys 24. From the fans around us, we can see that the songs meant a lot to the crowd as it was the song from where the members started their journey in order to form the IN2IT we know today.
It wouldn’t be called a showcase if there weren’t any type of games in it. IN2IT entertained the audience with solo and group games. The divided group game was so funny and the whole venue filled with laughter as the boys were very competitive towards each other to win the game.
The next performance was member’s solo stage started with Isaac singing to Jaclyn Victor’s Gemilang. We were amazed with his performance and most of IN2U were singing together with Isaac during his performance. Followed by Inha’s and other member’s performances, we were attracted to the dance cover of Gashina from InPyo. It was really hot and each of his movement was mesmerizing. The small unit of the group were also coving BTS – Mic Drop and Seventeen’s Clap. We were dumbfounded by the cover as IN2IT did a really really great job!
It was sad that we didn’t notice we were already at the end of the Showcase after all the great performances. IN2IT members bid farewell to the fans and promised that they will be back to Malaysia again after this for another event. And yes, no doubt we are looking forward to their next appearance in Malaysia!
On another note, kudos to Fast Track Event for organizing this awesome IN2IT Asia Showcase Tour Carpe Diem. And thank you for giving us a chance to cover this great event. We had a really good time during the Showcase and we look forward to the next one!
