Boys Republic has been invited to MTV‘s “World Stage Malaysia 2014” to perform as a representative of Korea, according to an announcement made by their agency Universal Music Korea on May 28.
“World Stage Malaysia” is a big music festival that invites artists from around the world every year. Previously, artists like Wonder Girls, BEAST, KARA, Jay Park, and EXO have performed at the festival.
It is a notable feat for Boys Republic as they are a new group that only debuted last year.
A representative of Boys Republic announced, “Boys Republic has come number one on the Malaysian music cart and has been scouted for events in Malaysia before. Through “World Stage Malaysia,” they will be able to interact with their 15,000 Malaysian fans.”
On appearing at “World Stage Malaysia,” members of Boys Republic said, “we are already excited, thinking about being on the same stage as other global musicians. We will prepare and do our best to represent Korea.”
“World Stage Malaysia 2014” will take place at Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon on August 16. Malaysian songstress Yuna will also be performing at the festival, with more artists to be announced in the future.
