Was invited to the private screening of an upcoming Channel U Korea reality travel program,《我和韩星有个约会》A Date with K-pop Stars, last Wednesday. This show is a co-production between Mediacorp and CJ E&M where Julie Tan is brought around Korea by various K-pop stars, trying all sorts of food and activities, embracing the Korea culture.
The show will be in English, Mandarin and Korean (no dubbing!). K-food hot spots where K-pop stars usually eat out, traditional Korean Spa, Korea-shopping and beauty pampering treats will be introduced in the program! Personally not really a huge fan of the K-pop fever but it must have felt really cool to be filming and living with K-pop stars, isn't it?
K-pop stars involved in this filming include Dal Shabet, Rainbow, Teen Top, Hwang Kwang Hee from ZE:A, Moon Hee Joon, Saerom, A-Jax, Clara, Jewelry etc.
Viewed the first episode and had a little press conference with Julie after the screening. Found it really cool as you get to see the extremely friendly and warm side of the K-pop stars, whom you usually see them as "superstars" on videos and on TV shows.
Jeffery Xu was the host for the preview screening.
The event was held at Korea Plaza (a very apt place for the screening) and it is like a small exhibition place where you get bite-size information about Korea, like tips on travelling in Korea, traditional costumes display, photo-taking area etc. Was hosted to some really decent Korea delicacies as well. Thanks for the invite, Channel U!
