The idol said, “I cannot say I’m a hundred percent satisfied with my performance. But I’m glad that I did all the moves without making any major mistakes. You all gave me the strength.”
“Before I went on stage, I had the chance to watch myself on the screen, and I could see all the nervous fans in front of me. Yes, I wasn’t the one who got nervous,” he joked. “Just kidding. It would be a lie if I say I wasn’t nervous. But I felt okay. When I was done with the stage, I realized that I was shaking.”
Regarding the perfectly synchronized dance moves he created with the local dancers from Qatar, he said, “I picked up all the dance moves here, and I learned the ones that I did in the chorus part just yesterday. The rest is from my head and what I’d grasped from watching the choreography clips.”
The singer also briefly mentioned what it was like visiting the national soccer players at their training ground. He said, “They are incredibly charismatic. I honestly was more nervous meeting the players than giving the opening performance.”
“I didn’t want to steal their time, so I said, ‘Don’t get hurt and you’ll do great just as you practiced,’ and went back to my base with a uniform they gave me. They were so cool,’ he added and wished them the best luck.
