The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Showbiz -

MAKE a May Day date with K-pop duo MXM (pic). Members Lim Young-min and Kim Dong-hyun will be hold­ing MXM’s first fan meet­ing in Malaysia on May 1 at the HGH Con­ven­tion Cen­tre in Kuala Lumpur.

Lim, 22, and Kim, 19, met for the first time as con­tes­tants on the sec­ond sea­son of real­ity show Pro­duce 101 in 2017. At that time, both were com­pet­ing to be­come members of boy band Wanna One.

Af­ter the show ended, Lim and Kim formed MXM. The duo’s moniker stands for both “Mix and Match” and “More x More”, as a tes­ta­ment to how Lim and Kim com­ple­ment each other cre­atively.

In July last year, MXM re­leased two sin­gles I Just Do and Good Day. Then, the duo re­leased a seven-track EP called Un­mix.

MXM will be in KL to pro­mote its lat­est EP Match Up which fea­tures the song Di­a­mond Girl.

In a re­cent in­ter­view with al­lkpop, the duo ex­pressed grat­i­tude to fans who have sup­ported them.

“From now on, I’ll be­come a more im­proved Young Min, and be­come a singer who can re­ceive more of your great love. I’m al­ways grate­ful for you guys. I love you, and I want us to spend happy days to­gether, not just in 2018 but in the fu­ture too,” Lim said.

And Kim echoed Lim’s state­ment: “We will work even harder and re­pay the love.”

Tick­ets to MXM Match Up Fan Meet­ing in Kuala Lumpur are priced at RM250, RM380 and RM450 and are avail­able from www.tick­ my. – An­gelin Yeoh
