[COVERAGE] The Legend at Avenue K

Avenue K First Asian festival brings Korea group The Legend to Malaysia for the first time. Before the performance starts, there were fans were waiting from morning to show support to the boys. Debuted in 2014, the group consists of Listen, Lito, Roi, Jaehyuk and Changsun. The opening act was Malaysia’s very own band Projek Pistol singing their chart topping hit – Wanita. Next, The Legend emerged on stage as they wore a colourful ensemble.

The group attracted crowds of screaming fans as they perform “Crush on you (반했다)”, the fun dance track made everybody move their body as the crowd chanted fan chants showing their support towards the boys. The Legend warmly introduced themselves one by one. The next song they performed was “손톱 (NAIL)”. The title song "NAIL" is about missing someone who has left, comparing the never-ending longing to how nails grow out over and over again. The boys went on and sang “SHADOW”, a song that went through over ten versions and arrangements, to make sure it fits the members' characters and visual styles well.

The performance generated screams from the crowd as they cheered. When they were asked “Since The Legend’s debut in 2014, several tracks were released such as Left Out, Shadow and Nail. In the latest album Sound Out, which song represent The Legend and what type of music style would The Legend like to try out in the future?” The member Lito replied with the first song that you all have listened is called 반했다, that song represents a new start of a love song. Also, member Jaehyuk states that the group tries different styles of songs and will continue to do so.

 The boys also shared that that the company is sorting out a proper schedule for a TV appearance in a drama/reality show, and once it is confirmed, the boys will update the fans. The Legend shares that their role model among all the groups in South Korea is Big Bang because they shine when they are together and The Legend would wants to collaborate with Mamamoo if given an opportunity to do so. Member Listen states that the most interesting experience working together in a group is that the boys are able to travel around the world and meet the fans, also not forgetting to thank the fans as well.  Followed by a performance of “I Want You Back” and The Legend ended with a ground shaking performance of “I Wanna Know” which is house style dance music. The boys thanked the fans for their support and went on to sign selected lucky fan's album.
