During the weekend, Malaysian fans were treated to Korean actor, Park Bo-gum’s rendition of the classic local tune “Belaian Jiwa”, originally sang by 70s pop band Carefree.

As part of his “May Your Everyday be a Good Day” Asian tour, Park Bo-gom surprised the crowd when he sat at a piano to perform the tune. To many of their surprise, the actor delivered a more than decent cover of the classic hit, as well as a pretty decent pronunciation for the Malay language.

This obviously caused local fans to go crazy. Fans couldn’t contain their excitement and took to social media to expressed it.

Before the performance, Park Bo-gom held a press conference, in which he spoke of his role in the 2018’s K-drama “Encounter”. In it, he portrays an easy-going youth who falls in love with a politician daughter.

Park Bo-gom also declared his love for the country, noting“Malaysia was my first stop during my first Asian fan meet tour in 2016. Perhaps this is why I feel attached to this country.”

Park’s last visit to the country was an appearance at Samsung’s Galaxy S9 launch last year.
