This morning, more than 170 reporters from all over the world gathered at Marina Bay Sands Convention Center for a short ‘welcome meeting’ with Korean artistes such as Kim Hyun Joong, Koda Kumi, miss A, Girls’ Generation and Super Junior.
Fielding questions from reporters from the floor, artistes like Dynamic Duo, Simon D, Lang Lang and Ulala Session shared their excitement to be part of this international event, which will be watched by 1.9billion people worldwide.
Looking dapper in grey, Kim Hyun Joong revealed that his initial plans to bring his world stage next year will be delayed to end of the year due to an upcoming drama production in April.
With nominations in the Best Male Artiste and Best Dance Performance – Solo category, when reporters quizzed him on his chances at tonight’s award ceremony, Hyun Joong humbly replied, “I feel that my chances in both areas are quite low. I am not expecting much from it but I hope to win at least one item.”
