Through TVBS-Asia, the show is broadcast to Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Australia, Malaysia, the States and other locations. Top stars that have previously guested on the program include Andrea Bocelli and Jay Chou.
Kim Hyun Joong talked about his youth, his debut, his acting career, and his debut solo mini-album. When he was requested to perform his title track, “Break Down“, on the spot for his Taiwanese fans, he didn’t show any signs of hesitation and got up to throw a spectacular performance on par with a real stage.
Announcer Fang Nian Hua, a famous figure to the Taiwanese, was also the MC of the program and was reported to have come with questions that she had come up with herself.
Kim Hyun Joong charmed the studio with his smooth charms and humble attitude. Staff commented, “He’s not only charismatic, but has such great manners. Truly worthy of being the best star of Korea.”
