Meet Running Man’s Lee Kwang Soo In Malaysia

Posted: 13 Nov 2013 10:03 PM PST



Malaysia, 6 November 2013 – Malaysians along with other international countries have embraced the infectious and unique new form of "urban action variety, called The Running Man since its 2010 premiere in Korea. At the time, most variety shows were either talk-centered (talk shows like Strong Heart or even varieties like Family Outing or 1N2D which focused primarily in cast interaction) or game centered (Dream Team and to a lesser degree, X-Man).

Running Man was an interesting mix of both; it offered a fixed cast completing very high-concept and ever-changing races performed in a new landmark every week. The show sought to do the unexpected, implementing new missions or tasks that aimed to thrill or intrigue. The characters continue to grow and win the affection and devotion of fans not just in Korea but the world including Malaysia.



Malaysian fans of Running Man will be in store for a session that will get them up and close with one of the cast most "paid attention to" personalities; Lee Kwang-Soo; who is known as the framing master, betrayer, and giraffe in the show. He was originally only known to be timid and quiet at the show's commencement but slowly became the show's resident traitor as betrayal became all the more prominent in the show. His hilarious and charismatic personality in Running Man propels him into international stardom and even given the title of Asia's Prince because of his immense popularity across Asia.

JS Concert Productions with Faith & D Entertainment and King Kong Entertainment proudly presents the much anticipated Lee Kwang Soo Fan Meeting In Malaysia that will be held at 7pm on Saturday, 4th of January 2014 at KWC Fashion Mall in Kuala Lumpur.

The Lee Kwang Soo Fan Meeting will offer Malaysians a chance to see him perform and serenade them with songs and dance live whilst getting to know him up close and personal beyond the personae they see him as on the small screen in The Running Man. He will participate in the various interactive fun and games which will be spontaneous and riotous for all involved. Surely a fan meets artist event of epic proportions that must not be missed for all Lee Kwang Soo fans.

Ticket categories available for purchase will be Premium Zone – RM 498 (All Premium ticket holders are entitled to Hi5 with Lee Kwang Soo and get an autograph poster from him) ; Category 1 at RM 298 and Category 2 at RM 158


Tickets sales start Friday, 8 November 2013 and will be available online at www.ticketpro.com.my and all Ticket Pro outlets, Rock Corner and Victoria Music. For more info log in to www.facebook.com/JSConcertProductions or call 03-7880 7999.
