Meanwhile, boy group Beast was in Tianmu Stadium in Taipei on June 6 for its concert “2015 Beautiful Show in Taiwan.” The two-hour concert included Beast’s most popular dance tracks such as “Good Luck,” as well as slower ballads such as “12:30” and “On Rainy Days.” The members gave individual performances to show off their individual strengths as well.

Taiwanese fans also prepared a surprise birthday party for member Dongwoon. The 4,500 tickets to Beast’s first solo Taiwan concert in three years sold out in just one hour.
