The MTV World Stage in Malaysia was back again for another year! The MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 music party landed on Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon on Saturday, August 16 2014, and it was a night to remember! Past stages have brought us various K-Pop acts like Wonder Girls, BEAST, KARA, Jay Park and EXO to our shores and this year is no different! Boys Republic was given an honour to represent the K-pop act to take the world stage this year.
Any k-pop group has never failed to gain a screaming frenzy from the crowd, same goes to Boys Republic. They kicked off their performance with ‘You Are Special’. The boys charmed the audience as they interacted with fans and expressed their love in returning to Malaysia. The lucky fan who has won ‘Boys Republic’s Girlfriend’ contest was invited during the ‘Dress Up’ performance, where the boys serenaded her. Lucky indeed! The winner was stylized into a new Korean look by the group’s stylist and she looked awesome on stage!

Their show culminated with fan favourite, ‘Party Rock’.
MTV World Stage also featured performances by American hip hop artist B.o.B, Thai group Thaitanium and our own Malaysia sweetheart, Yuna. Over the last few days, MTV World Stage Malaysia garnered nearly 26,000 Instagram posts, and since MTV first announced MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 through an unlock social campaign, over 132 million potential social impressions were also garnered on Twitter in over 11 weeks.
