[COVER] A Star-Studded Awards Show at StarHub Night of Stars in Singapore

Held last Saturday (22 Dec) at the Sands Theatre in Marina Bay Sands, the inaugural StarHub Night of Stars saw 34 artistes from Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, China and Singapore making an appearance at the prestigious awards ceremony that celebrates the best of Asian entertainment on StarHub TV.

Among the attendees were veteran Hong Kong stars Joe Ma, Benz Hui, Chinese actress Qin Lan, Taiwanese actors Jasper Liu and Derek Chang, Korean sensation Lee Joon Gi, singer Jeong Sewoon, K-pop groups Cosmic Girls and A.C.E, and many more.

As first-time attendees at an awards ceremony, A.C.E brought home the 2018 StarHub Best Newcomer Award and performed two of their hits, “Cactus” and “Take Me Higher” to much fanfare. They also delivered a touching speech and thanked their agency and fans for the award.

“Thinking back on our trainee days, we always had our goals written on the wall and imagined ourselves standing on the big stage to receive an award like this. We can’t believe that this valuable and meaningful award has been awarded to us, and we are really thankful to our fans, staff and family members for standing by us even when we have nothing. Our agency’s president believed in us, paved the road for us, and worked hard with us all these while, hence we are really grateful from the bottom of our hearts.

If you guys did not choose us, we will not be here today. We’re the ones receiving the award but it’s all because of the love and support we’ve received since debut, and we’ll never forget these memories. We will work harder to show you a better side of A.C.E in 2019.” — A.C.E

In Singapore for the second time this year, Jeong Sewoon nabbed the 2018 StarHub Best Asian Drama OST Award with the original soundtrack (“It’s You”) that he sung for the hit Korean drama, “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim”.

He belted out two songs that evening, “It’s You” and “Just U“, and added that he was honored to have worked with a good drama, and will return with better music in the upcoming year.

After dropping two hot performances “Secret” and “Save Me, Save You“, K-pop girl group Cosmic Girls (WJSN) was announced as the winner for the 2018 StarHub Most Charismatic Performance Award, where the members took turns to thank their fans from all over the world for this achievement.

The awards ceremony was concluded with an award presentation to Lee Joon Gi, the biggest winner of the night who took home the 2018 StarHub Best Male Asian Star Award for his excellent acting in Lawless Lawyer, one of the highest rated Korean dramas in Korea cable television history.

Thanking his fans for the endless love and support he’d received over the years, the actor revealed that he’ll return to Singapore soon for his Asia Tour in 2019, and asked fans to anticipate his future projects.

StarHub Night of Stars will be premiered on Hub VV Drama (StarHub TV Channel 855) on 13 Jan 2019, 7pm, and will be made available on Hub E City (StarHub TV Channel 111/825) on 19 Jan, 8:45pm and 4 Feb, 4:30pm.

[COVER] Lee Joon Gi: I Didn’t Want The Shoot To End For Scarlet Heart Ryeo

Actor Lee Joon Gi had thousands of fans from all over the world swooning over his good looks and charming vocals at his [THANK YOU] Asia Tour Fan Meeting in Singapore held at the Sentosa Golf Club last Saturday.

It was a first for the actor to hold a fan meet in Singapore, as well as perform in an outdoor venue and at a golf course.

Speaking to media a day prior to his fan meet, Lee Joon Gi shared that it was an enjoyable process making preparations for his show. He didn’t think that singing and dancing is too much of a challenge because it’s part of his hobby.

Said the actor, “I enjoyed singing, dancing and acting, but on a personal level, I wanted to interact more with my fans. This fan meet is an opportunity for me to showcase what I really enjoy doing.”

When asked to share any fond memories from the filming of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, Lee Joon Gi voiced about his initial concern of having a generation gap with his co-actors and actresses as most of them are much younger than him, but added that the chemistry was great on set even before the cameras start rolling.

“It was a lot of fun to act with these young actors and we enjoyed the filming process to the point where I didn’t want the shoot to end.”

At his fan meet the following day, fans were treated to several familiar tracks such as Lee Joon Gi’s ‘Born Again‘, ‘J Style‘, ‘Ma Lady‘ and ‘Now‘, just to name a few.

Some highlights that evening also include a Mandarin performance of Mayday’s ‘知足‘ and a special tribute of ‘Our Singapore‘ for Singapore fans.

Lee Joon Gi also sang his heart out to ‘For You‘, an all-time favourite OST from Scarlet Heart Ryeo. The multi-talented actor even showcased his slick moves as he danced along to TWICE’s ‘TT‘ and BIGBANG’s ‘Fantastic Baby‘, much to the excitement of fans.

With Singapore being the final stop of his [THANK YOU] Asia Tour, Lee Joon Gi thanked fans for their support and promised to return again for another show in future.
