It’s a big challenge for us. We will do our best to excite fans (in North America) with our songs” members of Apink said at a Korean fan meeting on Jan. 2, “Pink Memory Day.”

The group, which released its second album in July 2015, performed hit songs such as “Remember,” “Mr. Chu,” “My My,” “U You” and “No No No.” They also had “Q&A session with fans” and “dance cover contest” session.

The North American fans reportedly hailed Apink’s performance with sing-alongs, according to local media outlets.

The sextet, who made their debut in 2011, took their maiden voyage to North America in 2015, by joining the “2015 Korea Times Music Festival” in Los Angeles.

Their tour marks the second time that a Korean girl group has performed in multiple shows in North America since 2NE1 in 2012.

The North America tour came after “Pink Paradise,” a sold-out tour in Singapore and Shanghai and “Pink Season” in Tokyo, which drew 30,000 local fans.
