Next, Minnie’s performance of “Dahlia”, a song she participated in writing lyrics and composing, was accompanied by piano. Soyeon then mesmerized fans with the stage of “Psycho”, a track from her first solo album “Windy”.

Miyeon smiled and said, “These three songs made me feel like performing at a festival”.
(G)I-DLE later returned to the stage once again with “i’M THE TREND”, then shared their thoughts after concluding the first show of their world tour. Miyeon confessed, “Since this is our second world tour, I thought I wouldn’t be nervous, but I was really nervous. Having Neverland ((G)I-DLE’s fandom) here gave me strength. We’ve been to music shows and festivals a lot and felt the energy from those experiences, but being with Neverland gives us much more strength. Thank you, I love you,” revealing her affection for the fans.
Minnie said, “Thank you so much for coming today. I still can’t believe it”, adding “I heard people raised expectations for our concert so we prepared hard for it. Today is just the beginning, and we still have one more show tomorrow. Let’s have more fun tomorrow”. Yuqi shared, “I think we are nothing without Neverland. Thank you so much. I hope you enjoyed seeing our new stages.”
The highlight of “I am FREE-TY” concert was the encore stage. (G)I-DLE prepared an encore stage with songs requested by the fans. They performed “Give Me Your”, “Where is love”, “LION”, and “Oh my god” as encore songs then concluded the first day of their Seoul concert with “Peter Pan”.
