As predicted, BEAST stole the hearts of B2UTIES during their fan meeting / concert at the Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach on Friday, July 1.
Prior to the fan meeting, a press conference was held at the Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, and Lee Gi-kwang was late. In fact, he arrived from Korea just minutes before the PC started.
BEAST kicked off their Asia Tour in Malaysia with an energetic and awesome performance of Special. The 5,000-strong crowd got excited. The song was quickly followed by Breathe, which is a crowd favorite.
Owen Yap, the MC for the night, asked BEAST about the Malay words they know. They mentioned durian, satay and laksa to the audience, all of which refers to FOOD.
BEAST leader, Yoon Doojoon was also given a surprise birthday cake as his birthday falls on July 4. Fans sang the birthday song in Bahasa Malaysia and Korean. He wished that their Asia Tour will be a success and thanked all the fans for their undying support.
Another surprise was announced by the MC when he introduced Progression to the BEAST members. Progression, a dance group from Malaysia got to perform to Shock for BEAST. Following that, BEAST performed their hit song Shock followed by a cute performance of Beautiful.
Before the concert started, fans were required to fill in a form and drop it in one of the the boxes located all around the concert venue. It is for a special event where the BEAST members draw out names from the box. Fans whose names are drawn out are invited on stage to play games with the BEAST member who drew the name. Doojoon, Yoseob and Dongwoon in particular made the fans crazy with their exaggerated display of affection for their respective partners.
The event lasted for quite some time and Dongwoon’s team was announced as the winner. Dongwoon’s partner received an air purifier along with a Polaroid picture with BEAST members. Meanwhile, the other five did not walk away empty-handed as they received a cellphone each!
The show continued with BEAST performing the ballad On Rainy Days. The boys then ended the show with their latest track Fiction, and the crowd went wild.

But we all know the show is not really over, now, don’t we? To screams of “Encore!”, BEAST strutted out on stage again and sang three more songs: Oasis, I Like You The Best and V.I.U. Security was tight during the concert, but when the boys got to V.I.U, the fans have already stormed to the front row!
The concert lasted more than two hours and the Hi-Touch Session – which is for fans who bought the VVIP tickets – started shortly after. If you missed BEAST’s July 1 performance in Malaysia, fret not as you can still catch them live at the MTV World Stage soon!
