After kicking off the set with “Empty”, WINNER performed hits like “Air”, “Love Me Love Me” and “Everyday”, communicating with local fans in English, Indonesian and Korean. After solo performances by all the band members, Kang Seung-yoon drew cheers from the crowd by telling them that one of his favorite foods was “nasi goreng” and that he had had the dish before taking to the stage. 

"Today was very special to us. Musicians can’t exist without fans. We will be back with a new album, so see you soon,” said WINNER, wrapping up the event. 

Having previously performed in Manila and Singapore, Winner will wrap up its months long Asian tour in Hong Kong on Nov. 24.

After wrapping up the overseas tour, WINNER is to work on albums, including its third EP and Mino’s first EP, to be released Nov. 26.
