May Day meeting
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.ticketcharge.com. my. – Angelin Yeoh
