MTV SESSIONS: B.A.P

Premieres on MTV Asia on Thursday, 25 September at 7pm (WIB), 8pm (SG), 9pm (MAL) and 11pm (PH)

SINGAPORE, 12 SEPTEMBER 2014 – Six-member K-pop boy band B.A.P (which stands for Best, Absolute, Perfect), brought the house down with close to 300 screaming fans in their first performance for MTV Sessions held at Resorts World Sentosa’s state-of-the-art Waterfront Studio last night. Members Bang Yong Guk, Zelo, Him Chan, Dae Hyun, Young Jae, and Jong Up took to the MTV stage and wasted no time showing why they were deserving of the audience’s enthusiastic screams and cheers. Performing against a backdrop of flashy video effects and dozens of stage lights, the group pulled off an exclusive showcase of their songs in an up-close performance, consisting of “Excuse Me,” “Hurricane,” “Where Are You?” “Lovesick” and ” 1004 (Angel),” which left fans almost hyperventilating.

In between tracks, the boys paused for conversation with MTV VJs Alan and Hanli to answer some questions sent in by fans. They even had a “chilli crabs” dance moment in response to what they love in Singapore, which sent their fans into shrieks of laughter. As fans lit up the studio with their green B.A.P. Matoki light sticks, the boys captivated the crowd with their solid vocals and fancy dance moves. For the close to 300 privileged fans, they left on a high, feeling satisfied, privileged and screaming for more.

When asked during the Q&A segment who the quietest member in the group was, Zelo, Jong Up, Young Jae, and Dae Hyun pointed to Bang Yong Guk. It was a sweet ending to the evening with catchy dance number “1004 (Angel)”.

[NEWS] YG FAMILY IN SHANGHAI

015

In the evening of August 30, the Shanghai Stadium was filled with 35,000 excited fans who gathered for YG Family’s first China concert: “YG FAMILY 2014 GALAXY TOUR: POWER IN SHANGHAI.”

010

2NE1 started the concert with a dynamic entrance with their “CRUSH,” followed by “FIRE,” “COME BACK HOME” and “GOTTA BE YOU,”. EPIK HIGH followed the four divas with “WITH YOU,” “LOVE LOVE LOVE” and then WINNER continued on with “GO UP,” “EMPTY” and “SMILE AGAIN.”

004

BIGBANG followed up the heated up stage, dressed in gold outfits. As soon as they appeared, the stadium filled with gold, fans waving sticks with golden crowns on top. The stadium was united in one as the fans and BIGBANG sang “HARU HARU,” “BAD BOY,” and “FANTASTIC BABY” together.

013

After individual performances, YG Family was ready to showcase the highlight of the concert: collaboration performances. CL and GD transformed “THE BADDEST FEMALE” into “THE BADDEST MALE” and sang “MTBD” while SEUNGRI reinterpreted GD’s solo “CRAYON” in a comical way. WINNER’s SONG MIN HO and DARA performed T.O.P’s “DOOM DA DA” while EPIK HIGH and TAEYANG “EYES, NOSE, LIPS.” The collaboration was indeed special for the fans as these performances could only be seen at YG Family Concert.

007

Collabo performances were followed by PSY, 2NE1 and BIGBANG’s individual stages. PSY kicked off with the global mega-viral “GANGNAM STYLE” and moved on to sing “RIGHT NOW,” “GENTLEMAN” and “CHAMPION,” spreading his powerful energy in the stadium. 2NE1 appeared next to sing the much loved “I AM THE BEST” and “SCREAM,” while also singing “CAN’T NOBODY.”

The dynamic ending was by BIGBANG’s “TONIGHT,” “FEELING,” “HANDS UP” and their mega hit songs “LIES” and “HEAVEN.”

After the show, the local fans were much enthused to see more, and the entire YG Family appeared on stage for a curtain-call performance. Starting from 2NE1’s “GO AWAY,” YG Family performed BIGBANG’s “FANTASTIC BABY” and PSY’s “GANGNAM STYLE,” once again uniting with the fans. YG Family’s first concert in China ended in huge success.

The next stop in line for the YG Family will be held in local Singapore on Sept 13 and 14, then Beijing on Oct 19, and Taiwan on Oct 25 for the “YG FAMILY 2014 GALAXY TOUR.
