KUALA LUMPUR: More than 20,000 fans filled Stadium Merdeka yesterday to see not one but seven of their favourite K-Pop stars perform.
The K-Wave 2 Music Festival concert saw K-Pop groups Super Junior, Mamamoo, Nu'est W, A.C.E, Tahiti and Halo, and female singer Taeyeon giving their fans a night to remember.
The cheers were naturally the loudest for Super Junior, currently one of the most legendary boy groups ever, having been in the K-Pop industry for 12 years.
They sent fans into a frenzy with their energetic yet suave performance of hit songs such as Sorry Sorry, Bonamana, Mamacita and Black Suit.
"We were so worried because it rained so much during rehearsals earlier today. Luckily it had stopped," said group member Eunhyuk.
"We have begun our tour, Super Show 7 recently. Think of our show tonight as the preview (of the concert in Malaysia)," said the group leader Leeteuk, resulting in happy cheers from fans.
"Super Show 7 coming soon!" member Heechul added.
Taeyeon and girl groups Mamamoo and Tahiti on the other hand had their fanboys cheering loudly during their respective sets where they showcased a mix of cute and sexy personas.
The four members of Nu'est W, who performed here in 2012 and 2013, said it was great to be back and see that they still have strong supporters here.
Despite being newer than the other acts, boy groups Halo and A.C.E were just as passionate and didn't spare any energy for their own performances.
This is A.C.E, Tahiti and Mamamoo's first visit to Malaysia, who all commented on the country's hot and humid weather.
"It's a nice change, though, from South Korea where it's freezing cold right now because of the winter season," they said.
K-Wave 2 Music Festival was presented by Mcalls and organised by MacpiePro.
