A few days after the announcement of a K-Pop group, HIGH4
to come to Malaysia, not many mainstream K-Pop fans know about them. However, after a three days showcase and a celebration party, I am sure HIGH4 has gained double, if not triple the number of Malaysian fans. It is all thanks to their amazing performances and fans interactions. Consists of four members Sunggu (Leader), Alex, Myunghan and Youngjun
, they spent the weekend in Malaysia with HIGH5
(fanclub name for High4
) in a series of up close and personal showcases in Seremban and Kuala Lumpur.
Arriving Malaysia on the 3rd of September
, with a group of fans waiting at the airport, High4 surely would have felt the love from Malaysian fans. They started off their schedule the next day, with the Press Conference
being held at Neway KTV, One Utama and then they rushed off to Seremban for their First Showcase Tour at Seremban Prim
a. About 200
loyal fans were gathered at the venue and were seated at the VIP zone, and as the show started, the crowd double up to almost 500
audience from the passers by who stopped by to check out the group who performed a total of six songs that day. There were also game session with the fans as they play the guessing game and then some surprises including an early birthday celebration
for one of the members, Alex. Fans got the chance to take group photos with the boys, and then getting their album signed by the members.

where after being impressed with the performances of the previous appearance, more fans were coming all the way just to see the boys for the last time. That night, 100 fans were gathered together for a special Celebration Party
where the fans get to interact with the boys in a closer interaction, while having fun watching videos sent by the fans for New Pro Star Contest.

. It is clearly seen that High4 has taken the local fans' heart by storm, due to their vocal ability and choreography. Despite some technical and audio problem, they managed to deliver an energetic performance, all sang live without any glitches. their charismatic gestures, and friendly smiles would surely be remembered by the fans and if they were to come again next time, it is of no surprise if the organiser needs an even bigger venue to accommodate all the fans.
