VICTON’s “READY” Showcase
Brought to you by your friends at Kpopmap.
1. READY TO BEGIN
VICTON began their showcase with a performance of their sub-track, “Ulta”. The boys appeared in front us dressed in the chic black on black outfits. The boys completely owned the stage with their signature energetic stage manners. One of the most entertaining aspects of their performance was the cute interactions between the boys in between the lyrics. The high fives, the playful gazes, the hearts flying, and just the cute interactions are definitely a point to look forward to!
2. READY TO DANCE
SeungWoo and Heo Chan were revealed to be behind the choreography design. The two boys paired up to create the entire choreography from feel to point. When asked what was their inspiration for the routine, Chan revealed that he created the dance at a fitness gym. He recalled that he once overworked his arms with the barbell, which eventually became the dance point in the dance. If you’re wondering why their arm movements don’t look powerful for the track, you know that it’s because Chan’s arms were hurting when he created it!
3. READY TO COMEBACK
The boys just released their new album just 4 months after their official debut back in November. Their new album, “READY”, means that the boys debuted with their 1st album, but are now ready to show all that they’ve got through their new album. Although they say that they’re more than ready to showcase their all, you couldn’t help but fall in love with the boys’ nervousness. Perhaps it’s because of the high expectations put on them by the immense love that they’ve received for their debut album, the seven members were stumbling through their words and shyly smiling at their small mistakes throughout the showcase.
4. READY YOUR EYEZ EYEZ
VICTON continued their showcase with the long awaited live performance of their title track, “EYEZ EYEZ”. As teased through their comeback trailers, the boys’ choreography sync was on point! The boys were basically one body as they danced together on point at the same time and same angle. They even jumped together at the same time to the same height! Aside from their amazing KalGunMu, we definitely think you’ll love their new lyrics as they sing for you to have your eyes only on VICTON and them alone.
5. READY OUR TEAMWORK
ByungChan has been active in the variety show industry from the very beginning of their debut, and he’s been gaining a lot of love. When asked what other show he’d like to guest star on, he replied that although he’s grateful for the love he receives, he wants to showcase the VICTON teamwork. He explained that he’s very proud of his team and their chemistry. ByungChan hopes that all seven members will be able to feature on teamwork shows, such as “Running Man” and “Knowing Bros”.
6. READY FOR SCHOOL
March 2nd marked the first day of classes for schools all around Korea. VICTON’s cute maknae, SuBin, was actually supposed to go to school today, but he was unable to attend his first day, because the date coincided with their album’s release date. Best known for his friendly relationship with his school mates, SuBin gave a cute shout out to his class mates. He said, “Hey friends. I’m sorry that I couldn’t attend the first day of class. I’m working hard for our new album, but I’ll also work hard as a student.” His cute mannered shout out was absolutely loved by the crowd as he received a round of ‘aww’s.
7. READY FOR CENTER
MC Ding Dong couldn’t help but focus on the group’s main visual. SeJun was complimented for his looks since his debut, and was asked whether that has changed. SeungWoo responded that they still believe that SeJun is the best looking out of all of the seven members. So we had to ask, which expression was SeJun’s most confident look? SeungWoo shouted out that he believed SeJun’s emotionless face was his favorite, because it looked so sexy and beautiful. The group revealed that SeJun’s visual was undeniable, and that’s why he’s always placed in the center – I mean those dimples! Basically, SeJun has been, is and will be the main visual of VICTON.
8. READY FOR SUNRISE
VICTON’s last stage performance was their sub-track called ‘Sunrise’. The boys toned down their energy for the slow and heavy R&B track. The boys looked amazing as they crooned about the hard times that they’ve face for their bright future. The lyrics were completed written by the leader, SeungWoo, with the raps by HanSe. As expected by a Plan A artist, VICTON’s soothing vocals were above rookie-status as both of our eyes and ears were utterly focused in on the performance.
9. READY FOR FANS’ LOVE
Just after a hundred days since their debut, the boys have created their official fandom name! The name was revealed as ALICE, and we had to ask why they chose the name. The boys revealed that they chose the name ALICE, because it stands for the phrase “Always We Love the Voice”. Since their name VICTON stands for “VOICE TO THE NEW WORLD”, their fandom name means that their fans will always love the boys and their voices. Congratulations to the boys and their new fandom name, now all we need is an official fandom light stick!
10. READY FOR VICTON
To close out the night, VICTON revealed their future goals for their “READY” promotions. SeJun revealed that they hoped that they’ll be able to become closer to their fans ALICE and also reach out to people who have yet to meet them. For their long term goals, SeungSik expressed that he wished to become a group known as the group who always works hard and consistently improves with each album. To add to his older brother, SuBin added that he wanted to become a group who enjoys music.
