You might have waited for 2018 to end and the good news is, July is finally here! We’re now into the second half of the year and it’s time to gear up for some exciting upcoming celebrations in the next few months. But for now, July is all about getting fit, enjoying some of Singapore’s finest offerings, and of course a few great shows coming our way.
Get your hearts ready, for oppa is back. Korean singer-actor-host Lee Seung Gi returns to Singapore this month for a one-night-only fan meeting. If you’ve missed him when he was serving military service, you’ll get to see him again come July 7! We’re looking forward to him entertaining the crowd with his sense of humour and steely vocal pipes, and if we’re lucky, we might even see him host the show!
