ASC Live Broadcast

Hello!

This is my first week of 3 months of semester break. YAY!

I started my break doing something a live broadcast show for After School Club (ASC) on Arirang!

Backstory of how this happened. ASC tweeted that HIGH4 was going to be on the show, so I decided to applied for Hangout and got an email on Sunday that I was chosen as one of the candidates.

On Monday, after my last paper, I came home and got ready for a short and simple interview with ASC along with other candidates for Hangout to check audio and whatnot. That was interesting, I’ve never done anything like that before. I had a concern back then, it was raining everyday in KL and not only did it rain, there was also thunderstorm and lightning, consecutively, with the three combination, there’s no way I could on my laptop or wifi or anything, but thankfully, the live show was in the morning and the rain only started in the evenings.

Monday evening, I received an email saying that I am one of the contestants and were sent instructions to follow. It was so so so exciting! Meeting HIGH4 again, and I was so so so excited to meet the three MCs, Eric Nam, Kevin Woo from U-KISS and also Jimin of 15&. I love watching the three MCs together, they’re so funny. (Not gonna lie, I was more excited to meet the MCs but it was great meeting HIGH4 again, of course). The next day, Tuesday, I woke up super early to get ready for the show. We had two audio check before the live show started. It was Eric’s birthday on that day too! Unfortunately, we couldn’t wish him personally but it was still awesome. HIGH4 was so fun and entertaining on the show, their fancy dance moves and it was so so good meeting them again! ❤ So glad to be able to speak to the MCs even though it was super brief.

ASC staff really want the candidates to know that even though I received a email saying that I am one of the Hangout participants, they emphasised that they cannot guarantee a spot on the actual show itself because it is a live show and there are sometimes time limitation, which I totally understand. I think ASC is really good with interaction between fans and the idols. 😀

This was my set! I displayed all of HIGH4’s album that I have. Alex noticed! ❤

I was really really really nervous 20 minutes before the live broadcast, but got better after the show started. Then when it was my turn, I was nervous, excited, and spaced out a little. Hahaha. I still can’t bear listening to my own voice. Heheh.

Thanks to ASC, I have this chance, thank you ASC!

Till next time!

Finally the group comes out and performed their first song, Day by Day! There were a slight problem with the microphone but they quickly resolved it, I chanted “괜찮아, 괜찮아” which translate to “It’s okay” to give them support as they looked flustered at that time. (Y) They sound so good live!

Aegyo time! They were all asked to do aegyo on the spot, though Sunggu really wanted to sing, but the fans really wanted to see his aegyo, so he did it! They all felt embarrassed after doing the aegyo! It was really cute, but the members couldn’t bear to watch it! I was curling my fingers and cringing the entire time! Hahaha.

Goes to the wall and hide after the aegyo. Hahaha.

The scenario for this is as Myunghan as the girlfriend and Alex as the boyfriend, they re a couple, Myunghan wants the water and asks Alex to get it in a whiney aegyo manner, it was extremely cute!

HIGH4 Press Conference in Malaysia

Hey guys! I was invited to attend HIGH4’s press conference that happened this afternoon at 3pm-4pm at One Utama’s Neway. It’s my first press conference!

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

I arrived at the location about 2.30pm because I was coming from class, luckily I made it on time!

Finally the boys make their appearance! First impression, very handsome in real life!

Self introduction! From left to right, Alex the rapper, Sunggu the leader and vocalist, Myunghan the vocalist, and Youngjun the rapper and maknae of the group!

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

The question was, “Who is the most handsome in the group” and they all point to each other! The MC was Lynn, who also will be MC-ing for the rest of the shows.

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCEHIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

Q&A session, the MC took two questions from the floor and she also asked a few questions on behalf. Questions such as ideal girlfriend, all the members have different answers, for example, Sunggu said a girl with a nice smile, Alex said a girl who knows when to be serious and is humorous, Myunghan said his ideal type would be an innocent girl, lastly Youngjun said a girl who will only love him.

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

This was when the MC asked who do you think is the laziest? And Alex pointed to himself, and also said that he’s not that lazy just not as hardworking as the rest of the members. But I’m sure they’re all hardworking!

The four members also showed off their talent during the event such as rapping, singing and also beatboxing! They are so talented! Alex even rapped without MR! Very professional.

And we bid goodbye for now. 😦

The event ended with Myunghan saying, “Terima Kasih” but he did not pronounce it correctly, so the crowd corrected him until he got it right! 😀

The group then headed off to their first showcase at Seremban Prima.

There was also refreshments for the media and blogger who attended the press conference but I had to leave, so I didn’t manage to enjoy that. 😦

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

This was a very interesting experience, I hope I get to go to more press conferences!

I really apologise for the bad photo quality! I didn’t bring my camera, thinking my iPhone is sufficient enough, but it was not, I’ve learnt a lesson today, so now onwards, any events, I’ll bring my camera! 🙂

I think this is the closest I can get to a K-Pop idol, it was a pretty small group so it was quite private and intimate which is nice. (Update: I actually got closer with them during their showcase in Summit while they sign the album and also we took a group photo!) ❤

Remember to catch them live from 4th September at Seremban Prima at 7pm, 5th September at Summit Subang USJ 4pm, 6th September at Hartamas Shopping Centre 2.30pm and also join them as they hold a private celebration party at Silka Hotel on 6th September at 6pm (everyone is invited)! (For entrance fee for the celebration party, check out my previous post about the entire event.)

Till tomorrow!
