What: AIA K-POP 2013 concert
Who: Beast, 4Minute and G.NA
Where: Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur
When: June 27
Popular Korean acts Beast, 4Minute and G.NA were in town recently and I was lucky enough to score front row seats to the concert!
Themed “Be real. Love it. Live it.”, the event was the first ever concert sponsored by a life insurer in the country.
The concert was attended by over 12,000 AIA Malaysia employees, agency members, customers, business partners, media as well as K-pop fans.
Korean-Canadian singer G.NA kick-started the concert with Supa Solo and turned up the heat with 2Hot. The leggy beauty also performed First Kiss, Banana, Top Girl, Black and White, and covers of Rihanna’s Take a Bow and Rude Boy.
She has beautiful, long, healthy legs! She was also the only performer that night to speak in English (the others had the help of an interpreter).
Next were performances by the five member girl group 4Minute comprising Ji-hyun, Ga-yoon, Ji-yoon, Hyun-a and So-hyun. Clad in colourful outfits, the girls charmed the audience with their cute antics and energetic dance moves.
It was no surprise that started their performance with their latest title track What’s Your Name. The song from the mini-album “Name is 4Minute” clinched the No. 1 spot on various charts, including Billboard K-POP Hot 100. Among the songs they performed were Heart to Heart, Muzik, Hot Issue, and Huh.
The final act Beast elicited deafening screams from their fans as soon as they appeared on stage. The six-member boy group, which debuted in 2009, consists of Doo-joon, Hyunseung, Junhyung, Yoseob, Gikwang, and Dongwoon.
They performed hit songs such as Bad Girl, Shock, Fiction, Beautiful Night, Special, Freeze and Beautiful.
If you can’t get enough of the lads, fret not because following their their “Beautiful Show” international tour last year, they are planning a comeback this month (July) with a new album.
