“99-second mission relay”

With a series of missions that they need to complete, Donghae and Eunhyuk failed all of their 3 attempts and even jokingly scolded the fans that they should not just watch because everything is really hard. “This is D&E and E.L.Fs’ failure”, Eunhyuk added. Even though they failed, it’s undeniable that everyone enjoyed the segment.

“Moment of DElight”

D&E read numerous fan messages written on sticky notes. They get to pick some of those notes and read them aloud.

“Thank you for inspiring me to do good. I graduated this yr.”, one of the fans wrote. She was scolded by Eunhyuk because she wrote the word “year” as “yr”, followed by a warm congratulations. Also, he said that although she graduated from school, she cannot graduate from being an E.L.F, which left the crowd in awe.

On the other hand, Donghae reprimanded the fans to study English more and added “I love you so much” in the end. The fans’ laughter rapidly turned into “kilig” because of that. Next messages all includes playfully asking the two to show their abs. What’s more hilarious are D&E’s responses!

“Today, it will not happen. I didn’t bring it. My abs is in the house.”

“Guys, I am resting for months. My muscles are actually in vacation for months.”

In the end, Donghae hid behind the message board and flexed his arm muscles. Eunhyuk even pulled him which made the crowd went wild. Eunhyuk added that when they have their comeback, they will bring those “friends”, pertaining to their muscles.

Both gave the fans some sexy moves and a little part of “Gento” by SB19. E.L.Fs teased the duo and Donghae repeatedly said “Kayo talaga!” (You guys!) in a cute way which made the fans burst into laughter.

Even though they came to Manila as a sub-unit, they didn’t forget that Shindong’s birthday was just few days ago. They then asked the fans to sing the birthday song for him, both in English and Korean the proceeded in singing “Still You”, “Gloomy” and “Growing Pains,” and “Home.”

“We are tired, we need to go home”

Their last ment consists of telling the fans that they are tired and have to go home and rest already but the fans are telling them not to end the show yet. Donghae and Eunhyuk even copied the fans’ chant “Walang uuwi!” so they joked that they are not going home because they are going to the hotel.

D&E also performed “Need U” and a mash-up of “I Wanna Dance” and “Oppa Oppa”.

The fans asked for encore accompanied by the D&E Band. Suprisingly, the two walked towards to the fans while singing “Share My Love”. They said thay they did that because they want to feel the love of the fans and get closer to them.

As they play with the confettis, a VCR made by the Filipino E.L.Fs was played and it showcased the different beautiful sceneries of the Philippines where the fans brought their D&E “papels” or photocards to feel like they were traveling with them and they were both touched.
