K-pop supergroup Blackpink has successfully wrapped up the Malaysian leg for its ongoing Born Pink World Tour at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium on Saturday (March 4).

The concert – which saw an estimated 60,000 people – was also attended by Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh who praised Blackpink fans, also known as Blinks, for their orderly behaviour at the event despite the huge attendance.

In a tweet published Sunday (March 5), Yeoh wrote: "Seeing it (the stadium being lit up pink from the lightsticks) with my own eyes was simply unbelievable! Crowd so orderly, a lot of youth and young families."

According to Astro Radio Traffic, the roads heading towards the Axiata Arena and national stadium experienced heavy traffic due to two events, Blackpink's Born Pink concert and the Malam Bulan Bintang concert which featured performances from local icons Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza and Datuk M Nasir.

To avoid getting stuck in traffic, many Blinks filled the LRT stations, especially the Sri Petaling line heading towards Bukit Jalil.

Their actions received praise from Yeoh who wrote: "Thousands used LRT services too. Music (is) just like sports, (it) can bind us together. Well done Malaysian Blinks!"

The 44-year-old politician also shared in a series of Instagram Stories that she had a wonderful time at Blackpink's concert.

Citing Pink Venom as her favourite song and that particular stage being her favourite moment from the concert, she said: "I am officially a Blink. Imagine doing this (the concert) every year! @blackpinkofficial."

In addition to Yeoh, the concert was also graced by celebs including former world No.1 shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei, The Masked Singer Malaysia 3 champion Ayda Jebat and Hong Kong actor Chapman To.

Blackpink's youngest member Lisa – known for her record-setting tracks Money and Lalisa – has since taken to Instagram to thank fans for supporting the group's KL gig.

"Kuala Lumpur! Starting off hot in this beautiful city. Thank you Blinks for another great show and filling the entire stadium like a pink ocean," she wrote in her post.

During the two-hour-long concert, the quartet entertained fans with some of its biggest hits including Shut Down, How You Like That, Kill This Love and more.

This show marks Blackpink’s second time in Malaysia. The group previously performed at Malawati Indoor Stadium, Shah Alam in 2019 as part of its In Your Area World Tour.
