“괜찮아 괜찮아 괜찮아 잘될 거예요 I believe in you”
If you recognise those lyrics, or if you’re a self-professed Melody, then you’re in luck. Because from what we know, CUBE Entertainment’s 7-member boy group, BtoB (비투비), is coming to Malaysia!
Consisting of members Eunkwang, Minhyuk, Changsub, Hyunsik, Peniel, Ilhoon, and Sungjae, BtoB debuted back in 2012 with “Insane” and “Imagine”. Known to be one of the most laid back idol groups in the Korean music industry, BtoB released their 10th mini-album, “Feel’eM” back in March this year. They’re currently working on their “Piece of BtoB” project, in which the group’s members will release a solo track each month.
We last saw BtoB perform live in South Korea when we were there with our friends from Korea Tourism Organisation Malaysia as part of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics familiarisation trip and you can bet that we’re excited to see them again!
And that’s not all!
BtoB is only the first of 6 acts announced so there will be more to come. Who else is coming, you ask? Keep checking back with us for more updates ;)

UPDATE (3rd July, 2pm):
Get ready to hyperventilate, K-Pop fans! Highlight and APINK will be joining BtoB at the K-Wave Music Festival ?

Highlight is made up of members Yoon Doo Joon, Yong Jun Hyung, Yang Yo Seob, Lee Gi Kwang, and Son Dong Woon. The group made their debut as Highlight on 20th March after leaving their previous label Cube Entertainment. They formed their independent label and dropped the track “Plz Don’t Be Sad”.
Meanwhile, APINK (에이핑크) consists of Park Cho Rong, Yoon Bomi, Jung Eun Ji, Son Na Eun, Kim Nam Joo, and Oh Ha Young. The Plan A Entertainment recently released their 6th mini-album, titled “Pink UP”, last week.

UPDATE (5th July, 2:15pm):
Yes, yes, a million times yes! Mcalls will be bringing Teen Top (틴탑) and B1A4 for their upcoming K-Pop concert :)
Formed in 2010, Teen Top (an acronym for “teenage emoboy emotion next generation talent object praise”) consists of 5 members – C.A.P, Chunji, Niel, Ricky, and Changjo. This will also mark the group’s first visit to Malaysia after L.Joe left the group earlier this year.
Meanwhile, B1A4 is made up of Jinyoung, CNU, Baro, Gongchan, and Sandeul. Best known for their unique concept, B1A4 quickly became one of the industry’s most popular boy groups. To date, the group has released 3 Korean albums: “Ignition”, “Who Am I”, and “Good Timing”.
Who will the last K-Pop act be? Stay tuned to this post for more updates :)
UPDATE (6th July, 12:15pm):
