Roy Kim to Put Together Musical-Like Performance for ′2012 MAMA′
Though Mnet′s Superstar K4 is over, Roy Kim is still in training for the big things up ahead.
One of them is his performance at the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) coming up on November 30.
On November 23, Roy Kim won the entire Superstar K4 competition, and gained the chance to perform on the stage of 2012 MAMA. Because of this, while the other Superstar K4 contestants have been enjoying their well-earned break, Roy Kim has started to prepare for his MAMA performance since the weekend.
Last year, Ulala Session, the winning team of Superstar K3, performed a mashup of Open Arms, New Kids On the Block′s Step by Step and SHINee′s Ring Ding Dong.
Roy Kim′s upcoming performance is also gathering much anticipation in whether it will live up to the previous performances. He will be singing one of the songs he sang for his final competition, Passing By or LeeSsang′s Whose Life is This For, and perhaps other songs such as the popular After Turning Into Dust or Lee Moon Sae′s Whistle and Yoon Gun′s October Rain.
Director Shin Hyung Gwan of channel Mnet said, "Roy Kim is currently preparing for his MAMA performance with the best composers and rearrangers. He plans to express the process through which he became a superstar from an aspiring singer in musical form."
The performance will be directed by producer Yoo Il Han of Superstar K3. He is known for his work with UV′s No Cool, I′m Sorry music video.
Roy Kim said, "It′s an honor to be performing on a stage that features global stars. I′m doing my best to prepare for it. I′m preparing a performance that will fit MAMA, so please look forward to it."
2012 MAMA will be held on November 30.
