AB6IX made their premiere appearance in Southeast Asia at Singapore’s The Star Theatre with their fan meeting, “1st ABNEW.” Prior to the fan meeting, the boys appeared in a public media conference, where they discussed future plans for AB6IX’s group concept, shared fun facts about themselves, and more.
Lee Dae Hwi provided hints that their next concept would be something cute or hip hop related since they like to try new things. As the rap master, Park Woo Jin was asked if he would like to try other aspects of performance such as vocals, but he replied that he would prefer to stick to doing what he’s best at for now. As to what their charms and talent as a group were, AB6IX agreed that it was their lovable smiles.
During a segment titled “Too Much Information,” the boys had to share intimate facts about themselves. For Kim Dong Hyun, it was that he had chocolate after waking up earlier in the morning, and Lim Young Min mentioned that he has recently been in a sleep-eat-repeat cycle.
The boys were then asked to provide their first impressions of the person they were seated next to. Lim Young Min felt that Jeon Woong was very approachable because of his big, bright smile, while Jeon Woong noted that Lee Dae Hwi was a born celebrity.
On the other hand, Lee Dae Hwi mentioned that Park Woo Jin was really quiet at the start but eventually became the most playful and noisy, like an energy drink for the group. Park Woo Jin felt that Kim Dong Hyun was a quiet person, while Lim Young Min seemed like a tall, cute, and approachable person to Kim Dong Hyun.
