K-pop fans in Malaysia are in for a fun evening this end of month with some of the biggest acts in the current K-pop scene. Of course, we’re talking about “Wkndfest Vol. 1: K-Pop Edition”.
Malaysian iKONIC have been wondering whether YG boyband iKON will still be headlining the concert following the scandal that plagued the group, which led to the departure of leader B.I, but the latest update assured fans that the remaining 6 members will still be coming to town.

“The concept behind Vol. 1: K-Pop Edition was formed based on the growing interest and fan base in Malaysia and to offer fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience with sought-after KPOP acts. We hope that this will be the first of a series of shows we develop, as we want to reintroduce the excitement of experiencing live music festivals here in Malaysia and hopefully, regionally,” said Amirul Hafiz, Executive Director of WkndFest, in a press statement.
