YG Entertainment’s monster rookie, iKON, visited Malaysia for the first time last Saturday. iKON successfully wrapped up their concert at Stadium Negara and the K-popped! crew were there to join in the hype!
Organized by IME Asia and supported by Malaysia Major Events, the concert has been the talk of the town. Below, we bring you five highlighted moments during iKONCERT SHOWTIME in Malaysia:
1) RESPECT! iKON touched their Malaysian fans’ hearts at their concert recently. In respect of a lot of Muslims fans, they pushed the concert to a later timing, giving fans some time to pray. The organizer, IME Asia should be applauded for delivering such concerns to iKON’s management!
2) CONSIDERATE! Since the sexy image is a taboo in Malaysia, iKON members wore stockings/leggings to cover up during their girl group cover song parody, to avoid any sensitive issues in Malaysia. How can you not love these boys?
3) SAFETY FIRST! We usually have RELA teams maintaining order during previous concerts. But for iKON’s concert, we also had police officers on standby to avoid any unexpected incidents. Thank goodness everything ended smoothly!
4) POPULARITY! 5,000 fans flooded Stadium Negara to witness the 7 member boy group’s first concert ever in Malaysia. If you think they are all fangirls, think again. There were A LOT OF FANBOYS!!!
5) ENERGETIC! The boys performed 22 songs including their hits ‘Rhythm Ta’, ‘My Type’, ‘Dumb & Dumber’, ‘Apology’, ‘Airplane’! The energetic performances left the fans wanting for more.
If there was something to be improved, we would say that the sound system was not the best that night. The music was sometimes too loud and we could barely hear the vocals singing.
iKON’s concert was the first for a rookie group in Malaysia as the scale was big compared to some more veteran idol group. We had a great time and so did the fans! Here’s hoping to meet iKON on Malaysian shores again in the future!
