Kim Hee Sun Confirms She Will Attend MAMA This Year
Actress Kim Hee Sun, who has remained out of the spotlight for quite some time now, will make an appearance at the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) in Singapore on November 29.
Kim put her career on hold upon marrying entrepreneur Park Joo Young in December 2007 and giving birth to her daughter. While the actress did attend a launch event and fan signing for the shampoo brand she fronts earlier this year in March, the award show marks her first major public appearance in a long time.
Her attendance at the award show is sure to excite fans who have anxiously awaited her return to the limelight. In addition to Kim, actresses Han Chae Young, Yoon Eun Hye, Han Hyo Joo and Kim Min Hee are expected to light up this year’s MAMA as well.
Meanwhile, hallyu stars Lee Byung Hun, Song Seung Hun, Song Joong Ki, Park Si Hoo, Ji Sung, Go Soo and Kim Soo Hyun will also grace the stage at the music event of the year. Kang So Ra, Bae Soo Bin, Nam Gyuri, Park Si Yeon, Yoon Seung Ah, Kim Sung Soo and Oh Ji Ho have also confirmed their attendance at this year’s ceremony as well.
Riding out the K-Pop wave, artists from Korea and all over Asia are expected to gather in Singapore for the MAMA this year.
The main event will take place from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., immediately following the red carpet event, which is set to begin at 5 p.m. The show will be broadcast live in 13 countries, including Singapore, Japan and Thailand, while 20 countries will be able to catch the recorded version.
