Hosts Xiaozhu, Andrew and Wei Long "challenged" the audience to sing along to the chorus of Mok's hit 《慢慢喜欢你》, one of GCGC's Top 20 songs of 2018, while welcoming her on stage. Mok was pleased with the audience's enthusiasm, and said that she was looking forward to her concert tour happening here next month.
