091211 Seoul’d Out Singapore Press Conference
Event: Seoul’d Out Singapore Press Conference
Venue: Marina Mandarin
Time: 1330 – 1430
Brown Eyed Girls, FT Island, T-Max, these 3 groups are the highlight of this year’s Sundown Festival held in Singapore. Cashewmania is happy to share with all our supporters some snippets of the press conference!
The event started punctually and the interview format was one artist to the conference room at a time, so we don’t have a so-called “group shot” of the whole press conference. Without further ado, are you guys ready? ^^
First-up for interview was trio T-Max! Main rapper Shin Mincheol did most of the talking during the interview. And they revealed that their upcoming 1st album will be released next year! Defintely something to look forward to for T-Max fans! Throughout the press conf, can’t help but notice vocalist Park Yunhwa was always posing prettily for the camera! As for Kim Joon, he kept himself occupied by scribbling/doodling on the paper in front of him.
Next-up, we have FT Island! These 5 charming guys are no doubt the main attraction of this Seoul’d Out Event. As soon as we heard from the MC that FT Island is entering the room, the photographers positioned themselves upfront to get the best shot! Here’s mine:
Out of all the artists, FT Island displayed the most public affection (for each other). This being the 2nd time in a year that FT Island is here in Singapore, it was not surprising to see them being pretty relaxed in front of the media. Hongki gave straight-forward answers; when asked how similar is his character, Jeremy in [You're Beautiful], to his real-life, he (cheekily) in-turned asked back, “What do you think??” which drew laughter from the crowd.
The boys were then asked what kind of girl they would like if she were to join FT Island, just like in the drama [You're Beautiful], Jaejin/Minhwan answered, “one who does the dishes, does the house-work well. and plays the piano!”
fav shot of the day!
In between T-Max & FT Island, there was rappper Mario & singer Lee Ji Su. Lee Ji Su was asked which artist had inspired him to do music, guess who he mentioned! Fly to the Sky! I was surprised and glad to hear that!
Closing the press conference was the very-popular Brown Eyed Girls(even Mr. Korean Ambassador was seen taking photos of them in the press conference!). Having just landed a few hours prior to the press conference, the girls did seem a little tired, but still went through the interview professionally! Brown Eyed Girls mentioned that their performance costume on Sundown Festival will be similar to those in Korea. So it means we would be able to see the girls on stage do the Abracadabra dance like how we have always seem them on music shows! *yayyy*
Well, as to how similar FT Island’s Hongki thinks he is to the character Jeremy, hop over to K-Way to find out!
Much thanks to Kokokoreano for providing this opportunity! *claps* Hope you guys enjoyed this write-up & to those going for the festival, have lots of fun and share your experience with us!
