What have you been up to following the promotion of the single ‘Oops,’ from your latest mini album?

At the moment I am getting my next album ready. I’ll be practising, and I’ll be going overseas to visit places like Malaysia, and hopefully I’ll be able to visit other places as well to promote myself. My album will be in the making, and hopefully that will be out soon.

How do you feel about your success on the Gaon chart in May?

Question 4 (4Minute):
Tell us about the dance theme of your new single ‘It’s Popping’ which will be released on the 28th of June.

The song will debut on June 28th, and we request that our fans see for themselves when the song is released.J

Question 5 (4Minute &BEAST):
Are there any places in Malaysia that you wish to visit?

I heard that the beaches in Malaysia are very beautiful, so we hope we have enough time to visit one.

Malaysia is very stylish and fashionable, so hopefully we’ll find a chance to explore the city and do some shopping.

Question 6 (BEAST)
Doo-joon, Gikwang and Junhyung have tried their hand at acting for dramas. Hyunseung, Yoseob and Dongwoon, are you all also interested in acting?

If the opportunity arises, we would definitely be interested in acting. Having seen the other members do so well, the rest of us hope we may also achieve such success in acting.

Question 7 (G.NA):
Have you ever considered becoming more active in the acting scene?

Unfortunately my Korean language is not as good as I would like at the moment. So when my Korean language improves, I would love to get the chance to try acting. Trying is always good, and so I would like to try acting one day when my language has improved.

Question 8 (4Minute):
How do you think 4Minute differs from the other girl groups out there?

4 Minute:
Unlike other groups, all 5 of us have different personalities and characteristics, so we believe that this is our group’s unique factor.


Kuala Lumpur, 28 June 2013 - K-POP enthusiasts was dazzled by three of the biggest Korean acts - BEAST, 4Minute and G.NA at the AIA K-POP 2013 concert held last night at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Themed “Be real. Love it. Live it.”, the event was the first ever concert sponsored by a life insurer in the country. The concert was attended by over 12,000 AIA Malaysia employees, agency members, customers, business partners, media as well as K-POP fans.

At a press conference held before the concert to introduce the star-studded line-up, Bill Lisle, CEO of AIA Bhd said, “AIA has been privileged to do business in Malaysia for 65 years and this is something we do not take for granted. To celebrate this important milestone with the people who help us make a difference – our customers, employees, agency members and partners – we’ve brought a taste of Korea’s famous pop acts to Malaysia. The concert also provides the perfect opportunity for AIA Bhd. to connect with the younger generation.”

Present at the press conference was BEAST, a six-member boy group which achieved commercial success when they debuted in 2009 with hit songs like “Bad Girl”, “Shock”, “Fiction” and “Soom”. After their successful “Beautiful Show” international tour last year, BEAST is planning a comeback this July with a new album. Prior to the launch, the band had released their digital single called “Will you be okay?” on May 29 which topped all major music charts in Korea.

The AIA K-POP concert also featured 4Minute, which derived their name from the belief that they could charm the audience with a four-minute-long performance. Comprising five-members, 4Minute made their debut with “Hot Issue” in June 2009. The group has two studio albums and five mini-albums to date. Their latest title track “What’s your Name?” from the mini-album “Name is 4Minute” reached the No. 1 spot on various charts, including Billboard K-POP Hot 100.

A solo act in Korea’s pop scene, G.NA has released two studio albums and four mini albums. The K-POP sensation has also acted in several Korean dramas as well as hosted and starred in various television programmes. Her latest single “Oops” from her “Beautiful Kisses” mini-album has clinched the top spot in one of the most popular Korean music shows called “K-Chart”.

With Korean pop music now a phenomenon which is taking the world by storm, this concert will give us the opportunity to support some of the amazing talents Asia has to offer while capturing the interest, energy and real passion of today’s younger generation,” Lisle concluded.

The official AIA K-POP site www.aiakpop.com.my was launched in May to update K-POP fans on the latest concert news, photos and videos of their favorite K-POP artistes.
