Happy New Year, fellow readers! Many Korea-related artists were in China yesterday to ring in the new year, including Lee Minho, Song Jihyo, WINNER, and almost half of all SM Entertainment artists.
Some notable performances included EXO member Lay’s debut of a new solo dance song called “I’m Coming” and actor Ji Seokjin’s cover performance of “My Destiny” from Korean drama My Love from Another Star.
While the most watched show of the night was Hunan TV’s countdown event, Dragon TV had invited more Hallyu celebrities. Yuehua Entertainment’s top stars were big name guests at their concert. Korean girl group After School, who has a partnership with the Chinese company, performed a three-song segment for the network, while new debut UNIQ was able to fit in two of their latest songs.
As for Korean agency SM Entertainment, they continued to emphasize their Chinese expansion intentions by flying not one but four of their main acts to China for New Year’s Eve activities. Super Junior and SM C&C’s Tasty were guests at Jiangsu TV, while EXO and Zhang Liyin were guests on Hunan TV.
