SNSD/Girls' Generation in Malaysia Twin Towers @live 2012

After all these years of praying, surveys, postings, gatherings, and more, Girls' Generation (So Nyuh Shi Dae) finally made their way to Malaysia! Organized by Jojo Events & Petronas, Twin Towers @live 2012 this year brought us great luck after announcing that Girls' Generation would be in the line up. It shook the k-pop audience worldwide as fans from all over Malaysia and even Asia rushed to grab tickets to this event. It is held at KLCC yesterday 23 March 2012 and it even expected a crowd of 70,000 attendees. Only 8 members of SNSD made their way here as Yuri didn't arrive due to schedules conflict. Unfortunately, media moshpit was really far from stage and the event organizing was shit. It was my honest opinion to say that this year's Twin Towers @live had the worst event management I've ever seen in my life, making the event highly chaotic and messy. Free zones were allowed into the event after a certain period of time whereas people spent RM300 for the tickets, secruity were shit, organizer were shit, there wasn't any official queue or anything. This were just some of the flaws of this event. Jojo events, I beg your professionalism. If it wasn't for So Nyuh Shi Dae there wouldn't be any supporters of Petronas or Jojo events. After SNSD had performed, the crowds left the venue even though the main event hadn't ended. Nevertheless, I managed to get a few photos, below.
