Boys Republic Sets Hearts on Fire on MTV World Stage
The MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 music party landed on Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon on Saturday, the 16th of August 2014, and it was a night to remember! The stellar line-up of performers included Boys Republic, accompanied by B.o.B, Yuna and Thaitanium, rocked the stage in Malaysia with a collective explosion of R&B, hip-hop and K-pop performances to a live audience of over 10,000 fans.
Kicking off its performance with You Are Special, Boys Republic made its MTV World Stage debut with a bang as the stage ignited with a burst of fire power, matched by the fans’ screaming frenzy. The boys charmed the audience as they interacted with fans and expressed their love by returning to Malaysia.
The audience was surprised with a maiden performance of Boys Republic’s remix of Video Game during the MTV World Stage Malaysia, where fans were invited to post 15-second mobile phone clips on Instagram to #worldstagemyfancam.
Additionally, one lucky fan who won Boys Republic’s “Girlfriend” contest was introduced during Dress Up, leaving hearts racing throughout the performance. The winner was given a new Korean look by the K-Pop group’s stylist and received a wardrobe she showed off proudly on-stage as the boys serenaded her. Their part of the show ended with fan favorite, Party Rock.
Over the last 3 days, MTV World Stage Malaysia garnered nearly 26,000 Instagram posts, and since MTV first announced MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 through a social campaign, over 132 million potential social impressions were also gathered on Twitter in over 11 weeks.
