What do you get when you put local celebrities in the same room as Korean idol group Big Bang? A roomful of star-struck stars!
That was exactly what happened at the press conference of BIGBANG Alive GALAXY Tour 2012, held at Stellar, 1-Altitude two nights ago.
Decked in a black one-piece with her hair tied up in a ponytail, MediaCorp actress Ann Kok was evidently elated but nervous when host Stephanie Carrington selected her to ask the five-man band a question.
“It’s a miracle to be able to meet Big Bang, so I’m going to let it all out,” the 39-year-old blurted, before introducing herself in simple Korean and adding, “I love your music. I love the way you sing, dance, rap, and the way you dress is so fantastic.”
Ann also shared with everyone that she recently fell in love with Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon’s new song ‘Missing You’ on his latest EP One of a Kind and dreamt that she was “one of the girls in the music video”.
She boldly asked, “Do you think there’s any possibility that I could be featured in your music video?”
G-Dragon gave an embarrassed smile, before answering thoughtfully, “It’s possible, it’d be an honour to work with you; but you’d have to go through an audition.”
“The ladies featured in our videos are usually very sexy, is that okay?” TOP added, as if trying to salvage the situation.
Ann stated mysteriously, “Well, the Singaporeans know.”
Taeyang pointed to TOP with his thumb and quipped, “Give him your number.”
The joking remark was made true when Ann passed Taeyang a slip of paper after a group photo with Big Bang at the end of the press conference.
xinmsn also spoke to Romeo and Yahui who were excited to be able to see the group up close.
“I’m not really a K-Pop fan, but I did my homework before attending the event. I’ve seen their videos on YouTube and I really like Taeyang because I think he is a good singer and dancer,” Yahui said.
The actress also shared her first impressions of Big Bang, saying that Seungri felt like he has poise, while G-Dragon is very cool.
Yahui added, “I think his hair colour is really pretty.”
On the other hand, Romeo gushed, “I’m a fan of Big Bang and YG Family. My favourite Big Bang members are Top and Daesung. Top is really manly and cool, I think he’s the kind of guy girls would want as a boyfriend; I’ve seen Daesung on variety programmes, and I really like his humour.”
The 27-year-old also lamented at not being able to snatch tickets to the concert, but was still glad he had the chance to see Big Bang face-to-face.
