[Event Coverage] SEVENTEEN makes hearts go BOOM BOOM in KL

SEVENTEEN landed in Malaysia for the first time ever last Saturday (9th September) for 2017 SEVENTEEN 1st World Tour “DIAMOND EDGE” in Kuala Lumpur. Despite raining heavily on the concert day, thousands of Carats (SEVENTEEN’s fan club name) flooded Stadium Negara to see the boys performing live on stage.

The multinational group consists of 13 members (Yes, they are not 17 members or 17 in ages :P), namely S.Coups, Wonwoo, Mingyu, Vernon, Jeonghan, Joshua, Woozi, DK, Seungkwan, Jun, Hoshi, The8 and Dino, who debuted under Pledis Endtertainment in 2015.

Despite only debuting 2 years ago, the boys have a lot of things to show their fans. Thanks to the many members and their non-stop promotions for these past years! They embarked on their 1st world tour on July 14 in Seoul, and the boys had wowed fans with their multi-talented performances.

Malaysian Carats were treated to cute and bubbly songs such as ‘Pretty U’, ‘Beautiful’ and ‘Adore U’, to the energetic and charismatic songs such as ‘Still Lonely’ and ‘Very Nice’! Well, who doesn’t love the choreography of ‘Mansae’ and ‘Boom Boom’, the songs are catchy enough for fans to dance together! Last but not least, the whole stadium singing to everyone’s favourite song, ‘Don’t Wanna Cry’.

If you are still unfamiliar with SEVENTEEN, let us tell you a few fast facts about them. SEVENTEEN are divided into 3 smaller units called Vocal Unit (Jeonghan, Joshua, Woozi, DK and Seungkwan), Hip Hop Unit (S.Coups, Vernon, Mingyu, Wonwoo) and Performance Unit (Jun, Hoshi, The8, Dino). During the concert, fans get to watch all these units showcasing their talents. Hip Hop team’s raps were on fire, making the night hotter and fans forgot about the rain. Performance unit hyped the crowd with their dancing and acrobatic show. Not to forget the ear candy performances by the heavenly voices, Vocal Unit.

Overall, the concert was good; the venue, stage, lighting, sound system and performances. Nonetheless, we were a little disturbed by the concert staff that walked back and forth so many times, trying to stop fans from recording and taking pictures. :p

Special thanks to IME Asia for the invitation. We had lots of fun at the concert!

Concert rating : 6.5/10
