Malaysian ARMYs (as BTS’ fans are lovingly called), rejoice! Bangtan Boys aka BTS, who sang “2 Cool 4 Skool”, are finally coming to Malaysia soon.
Even though the concert announcement was made on 1st April, IME Productions certainly wasn’t joking when they confirmed that the 7-member idol boy group will be making their way to Kuala Lumpur this June for their first-ever concert in Malaysia.
BTS made their debut with the song “No More Dream” on 13th June 2014 under Big Hit Entertainment. The members were recruited through their agency’s “Hit it” auditions in 2010 and 2011.
Suga from Gyeongsang and V from Daegu were the first 2 members to be recruited to join the group. The agency recruited Jungkook after he left the Superstar K3 auditions in 7th grade. Jimin and Jin were recruited through private auditions while J-Hope was part of a street dance team called Neuron. Rap Monster already established himself as an underground rapper and had released several tracks informally, including a collaboration with Block B‘s Zico.
The group released their first mini-album, “Skool Luv Affair” on 12th February 2014 and subsequently released their Japanese debut album on 4th June 2014. They have performed at various music programmes and won several “New Artist of the Year” awards, including those at the 2013 MelOn Music Awards, the 2013 Golden Disk Awards, and the 2014 Seoul Music Awards.
They attended KCON in Los Angeles on 10th August and collaborated with Block B during the 2014 Mnet Asia Music Awards.
Titled “2015 BTS Live Trilogy In Malaysia – Episode II: The Red Bullet”, the concert is set to be held at Mega Star Arena in June. However, IME Productions, the lead promoter of the concert, did not announce the concert date.
They are holding a “Guess The Concert Date” contest for the fans, allowing them to win prizes before the ticket launch. Participants will need to answer IME’s question and leave a comment on their Facebook page. The grand prize winner will receive an official bomb light stick and a BTS autographed poster while the consolation prize winner will only get an autographed poster.
The contest ends on 10th April 2015.
The ticket launch will be held on 12th April (April) at the main concourse area of KWC Fashion Mall from 11am until 3pm. First 1,000 ticket buyers will receive an exclusive giant concert poster on first come first serve basis. VIP ticket buyers are entitled to participate in a lucky draw session and win exclusive “Hello session” passes.
