B1A4 has finally made their comeback in Malaysia with their first ever solo concert at KL Live on January 10th, 2015. This is the first time they’ve been to Malaysia since their last visit in 2012. It’s only 10 days into 2015 and the boys have also held a fan meet for their beloved Malaysian fans called “Let’s Fly with B1A4 and Acer” that is sponsored by the tech giant.
The 5 charming and talented boys, Jinyoung, CNU, Baro, Sandeul and Gongchan of B1A4 really out did themselves . The 2 hours with the boys were filled with never-ending heart-fluttering moments and it was quite surprising that no one fainted that day. It was a fun-filled night filled with performances, games and of course, fan service for the all BANAs in attendance.
Their opening act set the crowd on fire with their debut track O.K followed by one of their popular songs Beautiful Target. After the short performance, the boys settled down for an introduction to the Malaysian BANAs. The 5 members seemed so excited as they introduced themselves in Bahasa Malaysia leaving the fans cheering in glee for speaking their mother tongue.
The MC, Bernard Hiew, questioned the boys whether they had anything to say after not being in Malaysia after 2 years. Starting with CNU, he told the BANA’s that they were happy that their fans didn’t forget about them and came to see them and that they really want to have a good time tonight. CNU continued that they are always excited to come to Malaysia because of their passionate fans and they would always want to come back.
Baro had told the fans to have fun tonight with them while Sandeul on the other hand was worried about the recent flooding in Malaysia “We were worried about our fans and we came here to make sure they are alright” he stated leaving the fans touched by his heartfelt words. “We are happy to see our fans after not seeing them a long time and we hope to come back again in the future” Gongchan said leaving the fans eager for their next visit.
The fan meet continued with B1A4 performing Lonely which was renowned by their scarf choreography and followed by their song If. Later on, B1A4 began their Q&A session. The MC had revealed that the fans that wrote the questions there were hand-picked by the B1A4 members will have to step upon stage together with the members.
The first question was for Gongchan’s from a girl named ‘Mimi’. Gongchan kept calling her name in adorable manner making the fans giggling with joy. Before the lucky fans join the stage with B1A4, the MC joked around saying “Do not touch me” making the crowd roared with laughter “And do not touch the boys” he continued. Baro intervened by telling the fans “No, you can touch” making the venue fill with screaming fans.
Surprisingly, it was one of the lucky fan’s birthday. So Baro sang Happy Birthday to the fan while untying the scarf from around his neck, he then gave the scarf to her and telling her to keep it as a birthday gift. The fan giggled in delight as Baro gave her a hug.
Their session continued with the game that was named ‘Pop Pop Parody’. The rules of the game were that each B1A4 member was paired with their chosen fans and each pair had to pick a card from number 1 till 5. Each card had a scene and they have to act the scene in pairs. The scene on each card was a “couples” scene from a K-drama such as the famous My Love From The Stars.
The scenes lead to fan girling from all those present at the fan meet. As the guys delivered some special “gifts”, for example the lucky birthday fan got kissed on the forehead by Baro, while another fan got back hugged by Jinyoung and more. The most adorable part was when it was the maknae, Gongchan’s turn; he turned to the unpicked fans with an apologetic look “Sorry BANAs” Gongchan expressed before he acted out his couple scene
B1A4 continued their performance that evening with a few songs including the all time favorites What’s Happening and Baby Goodnight. B1A4 never failed to keep their performance filled with energy and there wasn’t any sign of tiredness on their faces. Afterwards, B1A4 had a short Hi-Touch session with the VVIP and VIP fans before continuing with their Encore show.
“Let’s Fly with B1A4 and Acer” fan meet had ended with the group photo between B1A4 and the VVIP fans. It was sad that the fan meeting had to end so quickly but fear not because B1A4 will be back again. The boys also revealed that they are working on their upcoming album. All BANAs from all around the globe should expect news from them soon.
Officially K-Music would like to give our special thanks to Acer and TGM event for the invitation and the opportunity.
