Filipina singer Charice Pempengco turned international singing sensation, once again visited Korea and made a special appearance on Star King’s April 7th episode. It is said that Star King played an important role in Charice’ international career as a singer.
Although K-Will already had a duet with Charice before, he bravely asked the international diva for another one, making other male idol singers react and ‘complain.’ Some members of two idol groups who were special guests in the said episode, B1A4 and X-5, signified their interests in performing a duet with Charice. Sandeul told K-Will “(K-Will) sunbae you already had a duet before.” Baro on the other hand has been vocal about him being a fan of Charice.
To be ‘fair,’ a challenge was proposed and Charice had to choose one among those who stepped forward. B1A4’s charming rapper Baro did an impressive rap while X-5’s sexy and charsimatic leader, Ghun showcased his own steaming version of Rain’s wave dance. However, in the end, Charice decided to have another duet with K-Will.
Charice had her first solo concert in Seoul last March 21st as part of her Charice Infinity Tour. Pempengco, as she is dearly called in Korea, is one of the most admired international stars in Korea. During the show, she promoted her upcoming movie ”Here Comes the Boom” together with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars Salma Hayek, Kevin James and Henry Winkler.
