ENHYPEN concludes ‘FATE’ world tour with a spectacular finale at the NCC

As Jake said, ENHYPEN “saved the best for last” as they successfully wrapped up their “FATE” world tour at New Clark City on Feb. 3.

Members Jungwon, Heeseung, Jay, Jake, Sunghoon, Sunoo, and Ni-ki definitely made their fans, ENGENE, experience a show “one for the books.”


The South Korean septet strongly opened their concert with “Drunk-Dazed,” “Blockbuster,” “Let Me In (20 CUBE),” and fan favorite “FEVER.”

Throughout the night, all members of the group enamored the crowd as they showed off their individual charms during their first ment. They also connected with their Filipino ENGENE by learning a few Tagalog words.

Ang lupit niyo! [You’re amazing!]” Jake said while leader Jungwon said “Ang cute naman. Mahal kita. [It’s cute. I love you.]”


Some other songs they performed that got the fans hyped and up on their feet were “Future Perfect (Pass the Mic),” “Blessed-Cursed,” “Attention, please!,” and “ParadoXXX Invation.”


One Filo ENGENE also got lucky during the second half of the concert after Heeseung kissed and kicked a football to the crowd with all ENHYPEN’s signature during their “Tamed-Dashed” performance.

To change it up, fans were serenaded during “TFW (That Feeling When),” with Jay playing the guitar and Heeseung playing the piano during “Just A Little Bit.” This was followed by their smash hit song “Polaroid Love” from their 2022 album “DIMENSION: ANSWER,” where the members boarded moving carts that toured them around the stadium.

Of course, Filo ENGENE also had things up their sleeves as they surprised the members with an “orange flower” fan project, prompting the septet to sing a snippet of their song “Orange Flower.”

“This is the Philippines I remember,” Jay said on the successful project.

The surprise did not stop there as fans organized a sea of blue roses for Jungwon and sang him happy birthday to celebrate his birthday in advance.

In return, some of the members also gave fans special performances. Sunoo treated Filo ENGENE with a song cover of “Moving Closer” by Never the Stranger, while Heeseung sang a little bit of Zack Tabudlo’s “Give Me Your Forever.” Jake, on the other hand, sang a brief cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” Meanwhile, Sunghoon danced to SB19’s hit song “Gento,” and beloved maknae Ni-ki showed off his moves as he danced to “Like This.”

During the latter part of the show, ENHYPEN made sure to finish strong as they performed “Go Big or Go Home” and “SHOUT OUT,” which made their fans sing at the top of their lungs the iconic chorus part of the song.

The seven-piece act then followed that with their edgier songs “Chaconne,” “Bills,” “CRIMINAL LOVE,” “Bite Me,” and “Sweet Venom.”

During their final ment, all members of ENHYPEN couldn’t help but express their heartfelt gratitude to all the fans who attended the last stop of their “FATE” world tour.

“To be back here after a year, I really wanted to show you ENGENE how much ENYPEN strives to improve day by day. A concert at a stadium is not that easy for all of us. And yet, thank you so much for making all the efforts to come [so] far,” Jay said.

“Tonight was very special for us because this stage was only made possible by ENGENE. It’s all because of you guys,” he adds.

Heeseung, on the other hand, admitted he did not prepare any script for the ending ment because he wanted to have a “natural conversation” with the crowd. He then thanked fans for their never-ending love and support and promised to “come back” and make bigger stages.


During Jake’s ending ment, he said they ended their tour with “such an amazing audience and amazing people.”

“There’s a lot of people here. I just want to say […] through us, through the seven of us, through ENHYPEN, I hope that each and every one of you would be able to be happy and get through tough times, and always smile because of us. That makes our day, that makes us happy,” he said.

“Thank you guys for giving us so much love and support. From the bottom of my heart, I truly cherish you guys, I truly love you guys so much. Thank you for being here tonight. Always, mahal kita,” he continued.

For their encore, they performed “One In A Billion” and “Karma,” which gave fans a spectacular fireworks display. The members also performed “Future Perfect (Pass the Mic)” one more time.

ENHYPEN then rode the moving carts again as they waved and interacted with their fans one last time with another round of fireworks display, which lasted more than four minutes.


The concert was then concluded with the members bowing and reassuring their Filo ENGENE that they would come back soon.

This event was made possible by PULP.
