′Lee Byung Hun has been a huge help,′ says MAMA producer
The stars turning out for the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) on November 29 are sure to light up Singapore this year.
The 20 guests confirmed for the award show this year include actors Lee Byung Hun, Song Seung Hun, Song Joong Ki, Park Si Hoo, Ji Sung, Go Soo, Kim Soo Hyun, Bae Soo Bin, Kim Sung Soo and Oh Ji Ho.
Actresses Kim Hee Sun, Han Chae Young, Yun Eun Hye, Han Hyo Joo, Kim Min Hee, Kang So Ra, Nam Gyuri and Park Si Yeon are among the leading ladies who will also make an appearance. The show has managed to gather some of Korea’s top stars in one place, which is no small feat, to bask in the delight of the hallyu fans.
Enews met with one of the event’s producers on November 18 who said, “Lee Byung Hun, in particular, has been a huge help. You can expect something special.”
Song Joong Ki and Yun Eun Hye have also garnered a lot of interest. Song is a rising hallyu star in Asia, who made a video appearance at the MAMA last year. He was a music program MC for KBS2’s Music Bank at the time, but he returns this year as a hallyu star with a successful drama and film under his belt.
Yun is popular in Greater China; however, it’s become increasingly difficult to see her on TV lately, and fans are anxiously awaiting her appearance
The show’s producer said, “In addition to these actors, unexpected stars will make a surprise appearance for a congratulatory stage. The foreign artists, not just the Korean artists, are also worthy of your attention. Expect great things.”
The 2011 MAMA will be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on November 29, and artists from all over Asia and the world are expected to attend.
The six-hour event will be broadcast live in 13 countries, including Korea, Singapore, Japan and Thailand, while seven countries, like China, the U.S. and France will be able to catch the recorded version quickly thereafter, reaching a total of 1.9 billion viewers.
