Huge Crowd Overwhelmed Roy Kim On His First Visit To Malaysia!

Melodious, soothing voice. That's the perfect description for South Korean singer-songwriter, Roy Kim who just finished his first ever promo tour in Malaysia last week! With two cities stops including Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh, Roy Kim captivated a huge crowd of fans while promoting his 3rd album, 'The Great Dipper'! Organized by Warner Music Malaysia, Roy Kim Promo Tour in Malaysia 2016 showcase was held on 26th August 2016 at Paradigm Mall. Prior to the showcase, meet and greet session and autograph session were held.

The showcase started at 7.30PM with a cover of a Chinese sing, "Cloudy Day" which he performed with full emotion, followed by "Love, Love, Love" which was accompanied fully with his acoustic guitar. He then sang "Pinocchio" which is from the 'Pinocchio' drama OST which he impressed us with his ability to pull of a long note and also interacting fans by performing at both side of the stage.

When was asked on what is his favourite Malaysian food, he mentioned 'sambal kangkung' and when the showcase MC asked on how would he describe himself as, Roy Kim said, "I describe myself as handsome, cute, sexy and smart maybe but I don't know, I think I'm just an ordinary person who likes to sing". Such a humble person he is! The singer didn't expect for the big crowd to come and thanked each and everyone of them. He even said that he caught a lot of Pokemons (through the game app, Pokemon Go) during his stay in Malaysia! The talented singer mentioned that his music influence came from his mother whom likes listening to folk songs thus growing up listening to them.

Furthermore, he performed "Home". Before proceeding to perform a cover of Damien Rice's song, Roy Kim said that this promo tour would be his last show before he goes back to Washington D.C to further his studies and hoping that he will come again to Malaysia for a concert! He also showcased some of his Mandarin language skill and performed an encore song, "Bom Bom Bom". Loud fanchants from the RoyRoses (what Roy Kim fans are called as) amused us and Roy Kim himself that he asked his fans to chant even louder! He also commemorated the day with a group photo with the audience and ended the showcase with a photocard giving session.

KloseUP would like to specially thank Warner Music Malaysia for inviting us to the press conference and showcase.
