Celebration of the best and hottest in Korean pop: B.A.P., Haha, Kim Jong-kook, Rain, and T-ara

KPOP Music Wave 2017 the biggest Korean pop concert to be held in the northern region is set to turn up the heat on 24 November 2017 at Setia Spice, Penang.

Presented by Golden Warriors Film & Entertainment (“GWFE”), the concert will be the biggest gathering of the hottest Korean stars in one night. The line-up features international best-selling artistes B.A.P., Haha, Kim Jong Kook, Rain and T-ara as well as local up-and-coming talents D’Vol (dance group) and The Flaming Circle (vocal group).

Following the launch of its recent event, the KPOP Sensation 2017 featuring Jessica Jung and Kang Gary, GWFE is confident that the upcoming KPOP Music Wave 2017 is just the beginning of bigger and more exciting Korean pop (“Kpop”) events to rock the region. “Kpop is a global phenomenon and we are proud to bring the best Korean pop performers to the beautiful island of Penang,” said Mr Hendrik, the Managing Director of GWFE.


Spicing up the stage is the aptly named boy group B.A.P. (acronym for Best Absolute Perfect). The group’s six members Yongguk, Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jongup and Zelo are well known for their versatility and charismatic on-stage performances: perfectly choreographed dance moves, sleek rapping and strong vocals. In 2012, B.A.P.’s debut single Warrior sold over 10,000 copies within two days of release. B.A.P.’s first full-length studio album First Sensibility topped the Billboard World Albums Chart upon its release in 2014. B.A.P. won its second Best Korean Act award at the 2016 MTV EMAs and in March 2017 the group released its sixth Korean single album “Rose”.


As one of the headliners, Ha Dong-hoon, or better known by his stage name Haha debuted as a singer and rapper of Z-kiri in 2001. In 2010, Haha joined Running Man as co-host and received the award for Best Entertainer at the 2011 SBS Entertainment Awards. It was in the show that he formed the musical duo, Running Man Brothers with another KPOP Music Wave headliner Kim Jong Kook. In 2016, Haha’s collaboration with Skull featuring Stephen Marley titled Love Inside was ranked top ten in a Jamaican video chart upon its release.


Multi-talented and multi-award winning Kim Jong-kook debuted as a part of the duo of Turbo. He pursued his career as a solo singer after the band disbanded and skyrocketed to fame with his third album This is Me, one of the best-selling albums in South Korea in 2005. In the same year, he swept the Daesang Award from SBS, KBS and MBC. Kim is also a popular TV celebrity who has appeared in hit shows such as Family Outing and X-Man. In addition to being part of Running Man Brothers, Kim also won the SBS 2011 Best TV Star Award for his role in Running Man.


Jung Ji-hoon, popularly known as Rain, is South Korea’s most successful kpop artiste. Rain debuted as a solo singer in 2002 and gained popularity with the release of his third solo album It’s Raining which topped music charts throughout Asia. His popularity continued to soar with his fourth and fifth studio albums and in 2006 Rain was listed as one of the 100 Most Influential People Who Shape Our World. In addition to his vocal talent and popping dance moves, Rain’s fame is also attributed to his acting roles in Korean hit dramas (e.g. Full House, A Love to Kill) and movies (e,g, I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK) and international blockbusters (e.g. Ninja Assassin). With millions of fans spanning across the globe, sold-out performances and more than 110 awards won, Rain will definitely rock the stage of KPOP Music Wave 2017.


Completing the line-up of Kpop stars is no other than the beautiful and sassy girl group T-ara. In the Kpop scene saturated with girl groups, T-ara shines out with its catchy hook-heavy dance music and an array of visual styles and concepts. The group’s single Bo Peep Bo Peep from their debut studio album Absolute First Album bagged five awards in 2009. In 2011, T-ara released the super successful single Roly Poly which was reported to be the top-grossing and highest-selling single of 2011 in South Korea. As one of best-selling girl groups of all time, T-ara’s members: Eunjung, Hyomin, Jiyeong and Qri will sizzle the night with their powerful performance!


As a prelude to the excitement, a press conference was held on 2 September 2017 at Mmall Penang to officially launch KPOP Music Wave 2017. Qri of T-ara was present to join the launch event and fans were given the opportunity to meet and greet the star at the exclusive event.
