TVXQ! “Catch Me” World Tour, Live in Malaysia, 18 May 2013
Kuala Lumpur, 15 May 2013 – Kuala Lumpur shall soon welcome the return of ‘K-Pop royalty’, TVXQ!, the biggest alternative Korean pop band in Asia. With the performance they’ve all been waiting for just around the corner, Malaysian Cassiopeias are brimming with excitement – and rightly so! TVXQ! ‘Catch Me’ Live World Tour concert organiser, JPM Music, has now been joined by the band’s production crew (all the way from South Korea) and are in the process of building the stage that will be unlike any other stage used in TVXQ’s Asian tour so far.
More than RM1.5 million has been invested in the development of this stage which is specially designed for the Malaysian fans to enjoy an intimate concert experience. The layout of the stage and audience seating allows a great number of fans to feel that they are getting up-close-and-personal with Max and U-Know as they rock the stadium with their electrifying dance moves and soulful sounds.
This performance will mark TVXQ!’s third appearance in Malaysia since the band was formed in 2003 and it is also their first time performing in Malaysia after an absence of 6 years. Their break from the limelight has not left the group’s following to diminish and in fact, their fan base in Malaysia has continued to grow over the years. So whilst many of the thousands attending the concert this weekend will be long time followers of TVXQ!, there will also be many new fans who have been won over by the boys’ previous successes and earlier music.
Fans attending the concert which will be held at Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam on 18th May 2013, are advised to take note that the concert time has been changed to 6.00pm. For those who are still keen but have yet to make arrangements – tickets are available (but in limited supply) and there’s just 3 days left before the big day so don’t miss out!

The feminine and cute voice that sparked much curiosity among listeners belongs to none other than Girls’ Generation’s black pearl, Yuri.
TVXQ’s representatives told Newsen, “Although it was just a short line, Yuri’s voice goes well with that portion of the song and thus, it was being inserted. As originally it was only melody, Max Changmin proposed to have a female voice for the narration. That’s how we had the idea. Composers and staff gathered to find the suitable voice for the part and in the end, Yuri was selected.”
