I/C NUMBER : ACTIVITY NO : TITLE : AN EVENT ± 2PM HANDS UP ASIA TOUR LIVE IN MALAYSIA

It was a hot night when Korean band 2PM performed in Malaysia for the first time, fulfilling the dreams of their mostly female fans. The beastly idols brought the house down with their signature upbeat hip-hop tunes, acrobatics and fierce dance moves. Balancing out their ³manly´ image, the six member band slowed things down with love ballads such as I Can¶t, My Valentine, Only You and Thank You. I for one enjoyed the familiar hip-hop, R&B tunes of The Asian Soul as known as JY Park who writes most of their songs. All in all it was an excellent show that left concert-goers satisfied and talking about their 2PM experience long after the concert ended. The concert kicked off on 25TH November at 8.30 p.m and the curtain came down to reveal Chansung, Taecyeon, Wooyoung, Junsu, Nichkhun and Junho in all their glory. With the fans screaming at the top of their lungs, the group started off their 25 song repertoire dancing to the techno beat of Hot. They entertained the fans for more than two hours. The next song Electricity was a play of lights and the group¶s six female dancers joined them on stage. The third song Hands Up was the song everyone was waiting for and 5,000 pairs of hands went up in the air! To help the fans sing along at the concert, romanized lyrics were displayed on the two giant screens for the more popular songs such as Hands Up, I¶ll Be Back, Again and Again, Heartbeat and Don¶t Stop Can¶t Stop. Fans were delighted and started singing along ± happily!

One of fans favourite moments of the concert was when the group sang the slow number I Can¶t. 2PM started it off with an accapella of the chorus, urging the fans to sing along. Sitting on high stools, they serenaded the audience. The audience loved it when Taec kneeled and rapped. Then Junsu switched to his falsetto and the crowd roared appreciatively. Nichkhun and Taec also appeared in rather comical identical plaid suits with super-tight pants singing the cute number My Valentine. The pair had a lot of fun with this song, running to the front and sides of the T-shaped stage, reaching out to the fans and making them respond. For the romantic number Only You, the guys carried baskets filled
