Following the overwhelming response at their <I’m Ready> Showcase in Malaysia in December 2013, Korean boy band Boys Republic is specially invited by MTV to perform alongside Malaysian singer Yuna and American rapper B.O.B. at MTV World Stage in Malaysia 2014. This event, which marks Boys Republic’s debut performance at MTV World Stage in Malaysia, was held on August 16 (Saturday) at Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon.
In conjunction with the release of Boys Republic Tour Repackage (CD+DVD), Boys Republic was at Speedy Video, Sunway Pyramid, on 15th August for their one and only autograph session.
During the autograph session, three lucky fans were chosen by the emcee to have the opportunity to ask any question to Boys Republic. One of the fans was brave enough to ask the boys to marry her but was opposed by all the fans, screaming Andwae!!! (No, way!!!). Unfortunately for her, the sudden proposal was rejected by the leader One Junn, saying that they have to love and care for all their fans. (Well, safe answer there One Junn! :p)
Boys Republic said they were glad to be here in Malaysia for the second time! They revealed their happiest moment during their first visit is to be able to produce and direct their own music video, “L.I.U”. While talking about the weather in Malaysia, they said they felt warm here. (Malaysia is hot isn’t it?)
Emcee then asked about their thoughts on the perfect boyfriend, Sung Jun replied that a perfect boyfriend must be patient and care everything about his girlfriend. There was a moment when a fan dropped her phone on the ground which One Junn take the initiative to help pick up the phone. (Perfect boyfriend, anyone?)
Before the autograph session starts, Boys Republic took selfies with all the fans. A cute little boy want to take picture with Boys Republic but got scared and cried because of the fans screaming too loud, and Sunwoo offered himself to calm the boy down. Both of them even took a picture together and Sunwoo posted it on their official twitter. So sweet of him!
The newly-released Tour Repackage album contains several music videos, including the music video of “Video Game”, the first installment of their 3-part project “Fantasy Trilogy”, and the music video of “L.I.U.”, a song from their first mini album “Identity”. The Tour Repackage album also includes behind-the-scenes footage from their last tour to Malaysia.
Special thanks to Universal Music Malaysia for the opportunity and we hope to see Boys Republic in Malaysia again.
