KUALA LUMPUR: The Korean wave hit the nation’s capital hard as K-Pop princesses Girls’ Generation rocked the Twin Towers @Live 2012 concert.

The South Korean pop group entertained thousands of fans on a specially constructed stage at KLCC, with the majestic Petronas Twin Towers as the stunning backdrop.

The crowd went wild for Girls’ Generation as they performed some of their biggest hits such as Run Devil Run, The Boys and Hoot.

Die-hard K-Pop fans sang along to the mostly Korean songs, enlivening the city centre with their loud vocals.

Also performing at the first of the two-day free-for-all concert, held in conjunction with the Malaysian GP, was former Pussycat Dolls’ lead singer Nicole Scherzinger.

She got the crowd to jump up and dance to some of her catchy songs from her solo album.

Top local artistes James Baum, Reshmonu, Elecoldxhot, DJ Nadine and DJ Prem added some Malaysian flavour to the star-studded concert and had the audience going with their energetic performances throughout the night.

Orianthi, the rock guitarist sensation who was selected as Michael Jackson’s lead guitarist for his This Is It tour in 2009, will continue the party at the same venue tonight.

She will be rocking the stage with international R&B star Kelis. Also scheduled to perform are Faizal Tahir and DJ Nikki.

Some fancams from the free concert

I Skyped my Malaysian friend (who went to the concert) the day after the concert and she was like,


And I'm sitting in front of my laptop, thinking loudly in my head, "B*TCH, AT LEAST YOU GOT TO SEE THEM IN REAL LIFE!" while she kept on crying about how it was over so quickly and sh*t.

Note: Yuri couldn't make it due to scheduling conflicts. And according to my friend, a good portion of the crowd left after SNSD performed (there's still many other artists, local and international, to perform after SNSD).

I didn't realized that Sooyoung said, "thank you", in Malay lol. I thought it was Korean, at first.

idk i think it's rude to the other artists to leave right after snsd performs.

The performances were adorable, you can tell they were having a great time, but i'm sad that Yuri wasn't there!!

And also jealous but happy for your friend, i bet i'd have a similar reaction!

sooyoung & seobaby talked in eng & malay = highlights of the day for me, seobaby really amazed me with her cute introduction. selamat petang, saya seohyun. ♥
i was kinda surprised to see yoona coz i thought tht she's busy filming her drama and couldn't come, but seeing her live is just another plus. :)
still bummed kween yuri couldn't make it & i am so gonna hold on to fany's promise saying tht they'll come back as 9.
hyo, soo, taetae, sunny & tiffany were adorable throughout the show. i still cant stop spazzing about them. & my life is still incomplete until i see my kween yuri with my own bare eyes.

i'm so jelly of you, the fact that thing is free and it's SNSD makes me rage that i'm in tganu stuck with workload of assignment. It's not like it's SUJU or other kpop artist that comes to msia multiple times, When are they're going to make a proper concert in msia??

Those headsets seem pretty shit.
But the girls look fab per usual.
Hyo's haircape looks extra fresh2death.

I thought the zone in front of the stage wasn't free tho? Fans had to pay RM600 for the "Golden Ticket"?

Hyo is looking so damned fine!! Sunny is scary when she's irritated LMAO..As expected Yoona had the loudest cheers...lol

i doubt the free zones could see shit. the screens were terrible and fhere were trees and walls blocking the view. hell, i was in the golden zone and my view wasn't exactly amazing.

lbr, their last few performances have been absolutely terrible. Sure the girls haven't been in a complete formation in a long time but the perfs are SO sloppy and half-arsed. They've already performed as 8 or 7 in the past but they were never this level of half-arsedness, let's not even mention them not knowing who was gonna cover/lipsync Yuri or any other missing member's parts.
I'm not sure if it's laziness or exhaustion but they need to put their act together quick, biggest Korean girlgroup or not, when you see SooYoung looking that sloppy after months of her, HyoYeon and SeoHyun saving the other girls' asses, there's something wrong.

/rant over
