Even the show as nearly the end, the fans were still showing their enthusiasm with loud fanchant. As usual, they went back to the backstage first before they sang encore song “Home Run”. Fans started to stood up and run near the stage to see their idol closer, creating big commotion to the front area.
One hour and 30 minutes never been felt this fast as we enjoy the show to the maximum level. Just like the previous fanmeeting, this time too, it left a big impression in their hearts. Being able to watch their favorite idol in real life would be the best thing as a fangirl. So, we hope GOT7 to come back again in the future too!
Just as Jackson said at the very end of the show, “Jakarta! We will be back!”
We would like to thank Mecima Pro for bringing GOT7 back to meet Indonesia Ahgase for the 2nd time also thank you for trusting us as the media partner of the show. We can’t wait for the next project and it shall be an awesome event too!
