MALAYSIA: In a remarkable display of respect and empathy, K-Pop artist Bang Yongguk has captured the hearts of his Malaysian Muslim fans.
Amidst the recent turmoil in Malaysia’s entertainment scene caused by the regrettable behavior of Matty Healy at the Good Vibes Festival (21 Jul), Bang Yongguk’s considerate actions stand in stark contrast.
South Korean rapper and singer, Bang Yongguk, showed his deep respect for Malaysian culture and customs during his “Colors of Bang Yongguk Asia Tour” concert on Thursday (20 Jul) at the prestigious Shantanand Auditorium, Kuala Lumpur.
What captured the audience’s hearts during the 7 pm to 9 pm (local time) concert was a remarkable 15-minute break specifically designated as prayer time for his Muslim fans.
Understanding the importance of prayer for his fans, Bang Yongguk thoughtfully ensured there was a designated prayer room at the venue.
Speaking through a translator in English and Bahasa Malaysia, Bang Yongguk expressed, “In Malaysia, we do have a time for prayer for people who have to do their prayer duties.”
