1. #RIPRobinWilliams Tribute
The world has recently lost one of its greatest Hollywood icons of all time as the legendary actor and comedian Robin Williams passed away on Tuesday morning. A number of tributes have surfaced on the Internet and the award-winning Broadway actor James Monroe Iglehard had even led the crowd to pay tribute to the late star at the Broadway’s Aladdin. Plus, a tribute video that has compiled a number of clips with Robin Williams in characters has gained more than 5,000,000 views as it featured his touching graduation speech from the movie “Jack”.
Thank you for everything, Robin Williams. We will remember you always and may you rest in peace.
2. Boys Republic Autograph Session
In conjunction with the release of the Boys Republic Tour Repackage (CD+DVD), Universal Music’s first ever K-Pop idol boy group Boys Republic recently met with their fans for an autograph session at Speedy Video, Sunway Pyramid on August 15th. Although the event started at 8pm, some excited fans were spotted queueing for the autograph session as early as 10am in the morning. Oh, did we mention that some fans were even chosen to take selfies with the boys as well? Oh yes, the jealousy is strong!
MTV World Stage in Malaysia 2014 definitely exceeded our expectations as the performers rocked the stage with electrifying performances to a live audience of over 10,000 fans. Thai-American hip hop group Thaitanium set the crowd’s energy level as they kicked off the night with 11 upbeat tracks including their latest single “Wake Up (Bangkok City)”. K-Pop idol boy group Boys Republic finally revealed their “girlfriend” and serenaded the lucky fangirl during their first performance for “Dress Up”. The crowd later gave a warm welcome to our homegrown talent Yuna as she kicked off her performance with her hit song “Falling”. After the soulful singer wrapped up her set with “Come Back”, American rapper B.o.B effectively brought the house down with his energetic performance and even interacted with the fans by exchanging high fives and snapping selfies with them.
B.o.B dedicated global hit song ““Airplanes” ft. Hayley Williams of Paramore in memory of the lives that were lost in the #MH17 tragedy. The crowd also observed a moment of silence before the performances at MTV World Stage in Malaysia 2014:
4. Chanyeol’s remake MV of H.O.T’s “Light”
K-Pop 90s MVs has been put in the limelight once again as the K-Pop idol boy group EXO will remake the MVs in their new reality program, “EXO 90: 2014”. EXO-K rapper Chanyeol is the first member to be featured in the music video and his remake of H.O.T’s “Light” has been released. Previously, Chanyeol promised that he will shave his head if the show doesn’t achieve a 40% viewer rating. Well, we wouldn’t want him to shave his head so let’s just hope that the viewers are enjoying it!
5. Color Run Malaysia 2014
Our Sunday was officially made awesome, all thanks to the craziest colour attack at Color Run Malaysia 2014! Thousands of participants aka Color Runners were plastered in colours as they ran through the race course with coloured powders poured on them at various points. Dubbed as “The Happiest 5k on the Planet”, the Color Run KL was brought to us by CIMB Bank to promote a healthier and happier lifestyle by bringing the community together in this fun-filled run. Some of the participants were even spotted decorating themselves with tutus and crazy afro hair, adding a touch of randomness to the running event.
By the time the participants crossed the finishing line, a party was held for the Color Runners as they continued to spread the happiness at the Finish Festival. With the massive colours thrown in the air, the vivid colour combinations created a beautiful scene at the festival.
