G-DRAGON‘s name is not a stranger among K-pop fans. He is known as the talented composer, producer, singer, songwriter and the leader of the most popular K-pop boy band, BIGBANG. No doubt he is also successful as a solo artist and is also listed as one of the most richest K-pop idol to date.
Last Sunday (Sep 17th), marked another milestone for G-DRAGON as he completed his 27th show for MOTTE Tour, with another 9 shows to go. Almost 10,000 fans gathered at Stadium Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur to watch G-DRAGON Act III: M.O.T.T.E ‘Moment of Truth The End’ World Tour in Kuala Lumpur.
Rainy concert days are very common every time BIGBANG comes to Malaysia, including this time also. Kuala Lumpur was raining heavily even before the concert started, yet it did not dampen any spirit of VIPs (BIGBANG fan club name) that came to watch the show.
As the weather was getting bad and the venue is an open stadium, the show which supposedly scheduled for 7.30PM was dragged later and only started at 8.20PM. The chanting and the cheers started slow, probably because everyone had a tiring day fighting the weather. But it all changed as G-DRAGON showed up on stage to open the performance with all time hits such as ‘Heartbreaker’, ‘Breathe’ and ‘A Boy’.
The loud screams and cheers continued as the idol performed his hits setlist such as ‘Obsession’, ‘Go’, ‘One Of A Kind’, ‘That XX’, ‘Who You?’, ‘Crayon’ and more. The highlight of the night was when Sandara Park appeared as a special guest of the show, featuring G-DRAGON in ‘Missing You’ and ‘Hello’. Blackjacks (2NE1 fan club name) and Daragon (G-Dragon and Dara shippers) probably were the most happiest fans on Earth that night as they are witnessing their favourites live on stage.
Despite the rain continuing in the middle of the show, overall the concert was fantastic, the lighting, sound system, and the stage were first class. The artists was good and the live band compliments the artists’ performance completely. The only thing is, we do appreciated how hard working G-DRAGON is trying to communicate in English with his fans but sometimes we can’t get the point he want to say in his speech, LOL. We probably want to suggest a translator in his long speech as everything he want to say can delivered more effectively :p
Special thanks to IME Asia for the invitation. We had lots of fun at the concert!
