[Event Coverage] Chung Ha left her mark upon her first Malaysian appearance

K-pop star Chung Ha, formerly of I.O.I. fame, recently graced Malaysian shores when she performed during an event to celebrate Songkran.

i-Serve, an organisation with expertise in online payment solutions, web and application development, e-ticketing and e-money solutions, brought the Songkran festival to Malaysia through a 2-days celebration consisting of a concert, waterfun and (of course) food!

Held at Setia City Oval Lawn on 13th and 14th April 2019, UChat Songkran Day-Out gathered a crowd of around 1,000 during the two days event.

There were exciting water-themed games and tournaments, performances from artistes and┬ámouth-watering food from Thai and local food trucks. This cashless event is the first one we’ve ever attended as all transactions at the event were made using UChatPay.

Various artistes from both local and international scenes such as Bunkface, Elizabeth Tan, BNK4, Jannine Weigel and more entertained the crowd for both nights. But the main highlight for us is none other than our star, Chung Ha.

Chung Ha greeted the crowd at 8.30pm on second night, which was welcomed by loud screams from her fans. It rained since 6pm, but it didn’t dampen the mood of her fans who were waiting for her since early that day.

After greeting the crowd with fluent English, Chung Ha performed 5 of her hit songs; “Gotta Go”, “Pit A Pat” (from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST), “Roller Coaster”, “Why Don’t You Know” and “Bang Bang”.

Known as a sexy star, Chung Ha was considerate of Malaysian sensitivities as she changed some part of the choreography for her song Roller Coaster. In terms of her outfit, we were told that Chung Ha herself decided to wear a blouse and long pants for her performance because she thought they were more appropriate for her Malaysia fans. Oh, how we love this talented and thoughtful singer!

Time flew by extremely fast but we truly enjoyed our super short time spent with Chung Ha. Hopefully, we can see her perform in Malaysia again in the future!
