Seungri will be back to Malaysia next week!

Gathering famous musicians, talents and renown celebrities from all over the world, be prepared to be wowed by the X factor portrayed via different music genres and styles, and the power to dream at INFINITY.

 

Music had always been important to every generation. We witnessed how much music has evolved from the 1920s to what it is today, and it has fully integrated into our daily lives, where it becomes convenient and accessible. Whilst millennials today are tech-savvy, growth in the music industry is being driven by live music – and growth in live music is driven predominantly by the millennials. Now in their 20s and early 30s, millennials are attending more concerts and music festivals compared to the generations before, with almost 40% of them attending a concert or
music performance in 2017.

 

 

Millennials are constantly seeking for experiences that will intrigue their senses and make them feel more connected to other people, the community and the world. With that, X Infinity and JS Entertainment had specially-crafted X Infinity World Music Showcase to represent such unique individuality, valuable experience and irreplaceable engagement to Change The Way You Live Life.

On October 21, 2018, Zico kicked off his solo concert ‘”King of the Zungle” in Los Angeles, California at The Novo for his US stops. Zico (지코) is the leader of Korean idol group Block B. He is also a song writer, record producer, and rapper. He has two solo albums, “Gallery” and “Television” and also appeared as a producer for “Show Me the Money” for Seasons 4 and 6.

 

His hit song ‘Tough Cookie’ was the opening song of the concert, the fans cheered on and that hyped up the show even more. Shortly after, during his talk segment, he greeted his fans with a smiley face while getting a few sips of water to quench his thirst saying, “LA, What’s Popping? Hey guys, so glad to see you! This is Z-I-CO!”

 

He then asked fans if they missed him and the crowd screamed with excitement replying back saying, “YES!” He continued on saying he was thankful to the fans who came out to his show and that he’s happy to be back in LA to see everyone.

 

He mentioned, “Today is the 4th stop for my solo concert and I’m thankful. Welcome to the Zungle! I thought I would get nervous because I’ve been doing a lot concerts as a group and not alone, but I’m really excited. The reason why the concert is titled The King of the Zungle because you know, you know why. In my music career, I believe my music is a lot of work that I created. I am the producer and king of my jungle.”

 

As he reaches down for his water to take another sip, fans cheered for him saying he is handsome and that they love him. He then asks the crowd, “Are you ready? Make some noise!” as the fans screamed all around the venue.

 

 

After a few of his performances, he asked the crowd, “Do you guys like it?” Fans then chanted, “ZICO, ZICO, ZICO, ZICO” which lead to a big smile on his face. He talked about wanting to perform pieces he couldn’t perform often and since music is like a diary, so he likes expressing his feelings through his music. Zico mentioned that he does not consider himself as a rapper, but an artist who can rap. He said to look forward to see what he can bring in the future.

 

“I was a bit nervous because I have to perform alone. With you guys helping me out, it’s like my members are with me. Also, a shout out to the performers, as now we are heading to the end.” He then hyped the crowd with the ‘Okey Dokey’ fan chant and performed the song.

 

Zico delivered 110% and engaged with his fans very well. He had an awesome set list for his concert with songs like, ‘Artist’,  ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Eureka’, ‘Predator’, ‘Fanxy Child’, and ‘Yes or No’. Zico’s graphics and cinematography was on point! Everything was well put together and some of the effects gave a nostalgic feel to the concert.

 

 

We got to taste a little bit of The King in his jungle at this concert. Sadly, the show had to come to an end and Zico said his final goodbyes!

 

Lastly, we at K-popped! would like to give thanks to MyMusicTaste and Zico for having us!

The new song, titled “Kiss and Make Up”, will be the first international collaboration for the girl group, who made history earlier this year when their Square Up album and single “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” became the highest-charting ones from a Korean female act ever on the Billboard charts.

After announcing the news on Twitter, Dua Lipa later thanked fans for their outpouring of support and expressed sadness about the final version of Dua Lipa, but there will be much more to look forward to from the pop-megastar.

Although the hype from iKON 2018 Continue Tour in Kuala Lumpur hasn’t died down yet, their labelmate, WINNER took over the stage at Stadium Malawati Shah Alam on 14 October 2018. And we were not complaining at all!

WINNER consists of four good looking and talented members; Seungyoon, Seunghoon, Jinwoo and Mino who were in Kuala Lumpur for their first ever solo concert in Malaysia.

WINNER was last visited Malaysia in 2014 as a guest artist at 2NE1’s concert, and after 4 years, they are finally back for their own concert tour in Kuala Lumpur.

As we proudly watched their growth as artistes and entertainers, WINNER definitely never disappointed us. Appearing in front of the 6,500 crowd at 6PM sharp, WINNER performed a series of hit songs from their early albums until their latest album.

Kicking off the Everywhere Tour in Kuala Lumpur with Empty, AIR, Hello and Everyday, WINNER was welcomed by the deafening screams and a blue ocean of lightsticks.

“Malaysia, what’s up! We are so excited to see you guys. Let’s have great fun tonight!” greeted WINNER.

WINNER continued to impress the crowd with their solo performances. We were treated with versatile performances from each member, starting with a hot and sexy performance by Mino, cooled down by Jinu with a ballad song. Yoon followed by showing off his voice and guitar skills, and last but not least a dance feast by Hoony.

WINNER won hearts with their efforts throughout the concert. Yoon said they really want to experience Malaysian culture but couldn’t because of the time constraints but still, they ordered Malaysian cuisine such as Sate, Mee Goreng and Nasi Lemak from the hotel room service. And he fell in love with Malaysian food!

During their ending ment, the subtitles appeared on the screen which created a slightly awkward situation, but Yoon told the fans they prepared the script just because they really want to communicate with fans. “Don’t laugh,” he added cheekily.

INNER CIRCLEs (WINNER fan club name) also took this chance to show some love to their favourite artist. They turned on the roses LED during the encore which turned the whole stadium so colourful and beautiful!

Roses are synonymly linked to WINNER, especially Mino was really fond of blue roses. Touched by the fans’ surprise for them, WINNER thanked their fans “Thank you so much. It is really our happiest day!”

WINNER performed 20 songs that night including their best chart-topper, Really Really… not only once but twice including encore!

We Really Really had so much fun at the concert and we hope to see them again soon. Check out our instagram for more snippets during the concert!

Special thanks to Macpiepro for the invitation.

Presented by CJ ENM, “2018 MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards)” will be styled as “MAMA WEEK” to bring a magnificent music event to all music fans. CJ ENM has revealed the teaser page (www.2018mama.com) of the official website of “2018 MAMA” kicking off the stunning ceremony. It includes this year’s theme, official logo, official titles for each region, and etc.

With celebration of the 10th annual MAMA, the theme “ICARUS” has been established for 2018 MAMA. The story of “ICARUS” represented “the Invincible Challenge”, “the Boundless Passion/Enthusiasm” and “the Everlasting Dream” which summarized as the theme of 2018 MAMA. MAMA has always enriched its annual stage design by focusing on the combination of artists’ challenges, fans’ passions and the dream of music uniting all in one. This year’s MAMA will conceivably be presented with an innovative stage design as the Asia’s biggest music awards ceremony.

 

The creation of 2018 MAMA’s logo design employed the aggressive blending of the “wings”, “heart” and “universe” symbols to activate this year’s thematic keywords of “challenge”, “passion” and “dream”. Correspondingly, all other related details of this year’s MAMA can be found on the official teaser page (www.2018mama.com).

 

Kicking off its first ceremony in Korea, “2018 MAMA Premiere in Korea” will bring about the long-waited newly-debuted artists not only from Korea but Asia to the audience. The thematic and extravagant international music ceremonies “2018 MAMA Fans’ Choice in Japan” & “2018 MAMA in Hong Kong” will continue in Japan and Hong Kong respectively. The focus of the stage and ceremony in ‘2018 MAMA Fans’ Choice in Japan’ is the selection of artists from fans all over the world. Likewise, everyone can enjoy the spectacular stage full of stunning artists and an ultimate awards ceremony in “2018 MAMA in Hong Kong”.

 

Online voting for 2018 MAMA will officially start from 18:00 on Thursday, 1st November 2018 (KST) until 12 midnight on Sunday, 9th December 2018 (KST).

 

Organized and presented by CJ ENM, Asia’s biggest music awards MAMA has been started off in 1999 as “Mnet Music Video Awards” for more than 10 years supported by the Korean music industry. It has been developed and transformed to MAMA in 2009 and this year has come to its 10th awards ceremony. Being held in Macau in 2010 was a benchmark of MAMA’s first overseas achievement, since then it has been held in Singapore and Hong Kong. It was an astonishing attainment for the first ever MAMA to be held in three regions last year in Vietnam, Japan and Hong Kong. Not only has MAMA become a significant year-end music awards ceremony, it has developed into an extravagant international music event. It has also simultaneously created an international communication/crossover network for music exchange which made MAMA gained recognition in Asia’s music industry and its communication network.

Unless you are an absolute life and soul of the party, you must have encountered difficulties when making friends. Nowadays people seem to be so busy and pressed for time that it becomes impossible to make acquaintances right on the city streets or even in more sociable places. All of the seriousness and reserved behaviour leads in the long run to depressions, feelings of loneliness and solitude. The only hope here lies with the online communications.

The digital world offers us endless opportunities when it comes to connecting people and interacting with them. Take social media solely, these tools enable people to keep in touch whatever the distance and rhythm of one’s life. However, if you are up for more flexible and prompt communication tool, then it should be nothing other than coomeet videochat for free. Through it you will be able to meet random people in the real time and at no expense. If you are eager to learn more, stay tuned!

 

Significance Of Online Chats In The Modern World

To begin with, let us explain the very concept underlying random videochats as communication tools. The primary objective of them is for you to be able to meet a variety of people from all over the world in a rather limited amount of time and find those who are interesting to you. The chats’ availability all over the world makes it also a perfect tool for practice of other languages than the one you natively speak.

 

Here are a few more reasons for you to try videochats or maybe even become theirs most devoted fan:

  • learning about different cultures: we all as human beings live in the extremely diverse world. Sometimes, though, we do not really pay that much attention to how beautiful and distinct different cultures are. However, cultural exchange is crucial for your development as a person and spiritual growth;

 

  • learning more about yourself: it is not a secret that by talking to others we actually get to know ourselves more. How come? Apparently, people who do not know much about us and have even a slightly different world perspective can see some striking things about our being unseen to our friends and even relatives. This gives one such a freedom of self-discovery and understanding which otherwise would not be possible;

 

  • practising communication and social skills: if you are usually shy when it comes to small talking or making new acquaintances, then online chats shall act as a lifeline for you. Thus, by talking to new and new people all the time, you will master your social skills, and communication will not seem that exhaustive and demanding as it is right now.

 

To sum it up, online communication tools enable us to find a new way for making friends, discovering the world and its diversity through new cultures and self-understanding. It is astonishing that such a simple thing as a random video chat enables us to have so many benefits! And if you have not tried it yet, do so.

SI-NO-SI-JAK SHOWTIME!

iKON was back in Malaysia for their 2018 CONTINUE Tour in Kuala Lumpur last Saturday, Oct 13. The 7 members of iKON; B.I, Bobby, Jay, Ju-ne, Yunhyeong, DK and Chanwoo brought down Stadium Malawati with their energetic and stellar performances.

“Long time no see Malaysia! Let’s have great fun tonight!” greeted iKON.

Marking their second time in Malaysia, iKON kicked off the show at 6PM with BLING BLING and SINOSIJAK which we think were perfect as the opening songs. Looking good in glittery red suits, iKON was welcomed passionately by 7,000 iKONICs (iKON’s fanclub name), who filled the stadium with a red ocean with their lightsticks.

 

 

iKON proved themselves as talented idols, as they performed various styles of music and perfectly delivered it with character. From the laidback song, My Type to the jazzy beach vibe, Cocktail to the cute and cheeky, Bestfriend to the sweet serenading ballad, Just For You to the swag upbeat dance Rhythm Ta and to the more darker emotional song, Killing Me, they nailed it all!

 

 

Malaysian fans were so lucky last Saturday to watch iKON performing for the first time outside Korea their latest songs, Don’t Let Me Know, Adore You and the current chart-topper, Goodbye Road.

 

 

And not forgetting the song that was phenomenal in South Korea early this year, Love Scenario! iKON treated fans not only once but twice including the encore.

 

 

We had so much fun at the iKoncert and we hope to see their 3rd tour in Malaysia in the future.

Special thanks to the organizer, Macpiepro for the invitation.

Samsung Electronics is collaborating with Porsche Asia Pacific in respect of the Porsche Experience this year. Held from 7 to 17 October 2018 at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, The Porsche Experience is one of Porsche’s key events where existing customers and potential customers come together for a full-day driving experience with Porsche driving instructors. The event also serves as a platform to showcase the latest products and innovations from both Samsung and Porsche.

“As a forward-thinking industry leader, Porsche is constantly at the forefront of innovation and Samsung is delighted to partner a like-minded brand for the Porsche Experience,” said Mr Steve Lee, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics Southeast Asia & Oceania. “Samsung is constantly exploring opportunities to elevate the lifestyles of our customers through quality and innovative technology. This collaboration is the ideal platform to reach out to consumers, offering them an unforgettable experience with our premium and revolutionary products.”

Samsung Showcase at The Porsche Experience

At the Porsche Experience, Samsung is showcasing its LED for Home (IF P1.2) display in the briefing area which simulates a luxurious living room environment. Packed with advanced technologies for enhanced image clarity and performance, the IF Series display is a sophisticated display that brings a brilliant, life-like viewing experience to the guests at the event.

Samsung’s interactive digital display tool Flip is being used to brief the guests on relevant driving instructions and circuit conditions. Samsung’s 65” UHD Smart Signage and a 49″ Curved Monitor are being showcased at the event as well. 

 

Transforming Walls into Displays with Samsung LED for Home

While LED displays are often found unfit for home installations, Samsung has changed the rules with the Samsung LED for Home displays, transforming the way consumers enjoy top-of-the-line LED technology by bringing it into their homes.

 

First introduced at the global smart home industry event CEDIA 2018 in last September, Samsung’s LED for Home displays foster a truly original experience without restrictions in size or form. The perfectly clear image quality with immense details can be achieved with Samsung LED for Home displays. Samsung was able to do this by reducing the LED pixel spaces with MicroLED display’s ‘fine pixel pitch’ technology.

 

To help create homes and indoor spaces where the displays are in perfect harmony with the surrounding environment and users’ unique styles, Samsung plans to expand the Samsung LED for Home product lineup and further develop technologies to integrate the displays into the daily lifestyles of consumers.
