The MC came on stage to officially introduce Roy Kim to the Malaysian audience. Roy Kim reveals what inspired him to step into the Korean music industry, it’s all thanks to his mother’s love for Korean folk songs. Roy Kim shares his favorite Malaysian food, which turns out to be “Sambal Kangkung” stating how he enjoys local Malaysian dishes. The MC curiously asked Roy Kim why he has chosen to repeat the title of his hit songs three times such as Bom Bom Bom and Love Love Love. He mentioned that for Bom Bom Bom, he did not want to just call it “spring” so he repeated the word "spring" three times, hence Bom Bom Bom was born and it topped the charts in Korea. He then playfully explained that he wanted to try it again and the song Love Love Love was created generating laughter from the crowd.

He takes the stage one more time wowing the crowd with a performance of "Home", showering love towards his fans with his melodious voice as he sang soulfully. The final song, "Bom Bom Bom" the spring hit song got the fans singing along whilst following the fan-chant lead by Roy Kim himself.

The crowd continues to chant “Encore, Encore!” wanting more Roy Kim and he obliged to his fans. He returned and ends the showcase with a cover of “The Blower’s Daughter”, once again showcasing his ability to sing in various languages and yet still able to convey the emotions out to the audience

“Belgie Tour” Merch is not affiliated with Gigi and Bella Hadid



Sorry to break your hearts but Gigi Hadid recently announced on Twitter that the she is not affiliated with the “Belgie Tour” Merch by Urban Sophistication. She recently posted a Snapchat wearing the “Belgie Tour” pink hoodie stamped with retro-barbies resembling strongly to her and Bella. This garnered attention from fans and the media, assuming the “Belgie Tour” merchandise is a collaboration between the model sisters and Urban Sophistication.
The confusion came about when several media outlets reported “Belgie Tour” apparel is official merchandise from the Hadid sisters. Since Gigi spoke out, The Belgie Tour line has been pulled from the Urban Sophistication website. But fret not! Gigi mentioned that the sibling duo will keep their fans up to date if they decided to put out their own merchandise. We’ll be waiting!
