Seungri (real name Lee Seung-hyun; 이승현) sent K-pop fans into a frenzy when he was in Malaysia yesterday (31st October, Wednesday).
The BIGBANG maknae was scheduled to perform at the “X Infinity World Music Showcase 2018” in Genting International Convention Centre, Genting Highland. Before heading up, the 28-year-old K-pop star made sure to drop by his famed Aori Ramen branch in Pavilion KL.
Several fans were shocked at Seungri’s unexpected appearance at Aori Ramen Pavilion KL. The singer was initially supposed to officiate the launch when the restaurant debuted in June. Sadly, due to scheduling conflict, the beloved entertainer couldn’t make it. If you haven’t had the chance to try it yet, find out what food options are available here.
Seungri also proceeded to sign some framed photos of Aori Ramen’s animated characters. The next time you visit Aori Ramen Pavilion KL, feel free to snap a selfie with the picture hanging on the wall. In addition, the Aori Ramen staff members also got to take a group photo with the singer himself. Jealous much!
Later that night, the concert-goers in Genting also went crazy for Seungri. He opened his segment with “Bang Bang Bang” and continued to thrill fans with another BigBang hit “Fantastic Baby”. Needless to say, the atmosphere was LIT!
Seungri also joked saying, “I know you guys want to see GD but unfortunately I’m not but I don’t care“, before asking audiences to follow him on Instagram, adding, “GD has more followers. He is superstar and I’m just so so star“.
The singer spoke a mixture of Cantonese, Mandarin and English that night. He also expressed that Malaysia is like home to him and he’d like to perform a Malay song someday. Check out some of the clips recorded by fans:
