tvN K-POP Star Hunt
I really wanted to be the Lee Hyori of the Philippines.
In 2004, when I first became a Kpop fan, Hyori was the goddess of the scene. 2003 was dubbed as the “Year of Hyori”, in fact. However, she captured my heart the most on Family Outing in 2008 because she showed the world how funny, sexy and fierce she is and most of all, she’s not afraid to make fun of her self.
But perhaps growing old does change a person’s priorities. It dawned on me that my calling was not to become a pop star but a famous host and an award-winning actress (did you see what I did thaaar?).
Is my swag enough for Kpop? No? Kthnxbi.
(Hosting the 2nd Philippine Kpop Convention on December 2010)
Even then, I am aware that many of my readers and friends from the Kpop community do dream of performing in front of thousands of people, of winning a Daesang, of hangin’ out with their idols backstage.
So, do you wanna be the next big Kpop star? Hold on to your seats, boys and girls ‘coz you’re one step closer to your goal! Presenting the tvN KPop Star Hunt Contest! And Funny is the New Sexy is an OFFICIAL BLOG PARTNER! Whoohoo! I was told I’ll be covering this event as well and asdfghjkl tvN, I’ll be your kids’ nanny for a week if you send me to Korea for the finals or something
and I get to hangout with Beast OHGAWD *nosebleeds*.
Starhunt is tvN’s regional contest to capture the popularity of Korean Pop Music (K-Pop) and give our viewers the opportunity of a lifetime to become the next big K-Pop sensation! In this regional contest that spans Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines, K-Pop fans between the ages of 11-29 are invited to submit an individual song and dance performance video of any song of choice.
