If you change city, dates, or routings, you will not.

OP is still flying to the same region with the suggested routing change, so should be OK.

I just checked on an award ticket made last year that I changed on January 23. I changed the outbound from JFK-VIE to IAD-MUC and an intra-Europe segment from LED-VIE to LED-VCE and it did not cost me additional miles.

Is Japan considered the same region as SIN, though? On the award chart, a Japan Business class seat from North America costs 120,000 miles.... while a North/South Asia business class seat (would include SIN, I assume) costs 125,000 miles.
