South Korean singer-songwriter Roy Kim (로이킴) is one extremely charming man.
The Superstar K4 winner held the press conference for his Malaysian fan meet and showcase at the Pullman Hotel, Bangsar this morning (Friday, 26th August) and emcee Emely Poon, a DJ from MY FM, had the chance to ask him a few questions about his music, career, and personal life.
During the short Q&A session, the K-Pop crooner, who studied in Canada and America since his elementary school years, said that he started writing songs when he was 17 years old and his first song was actually written in English. He also mentioned that he likes to write songs based on personal stories. Did you know that his hit song “Home” is about his dog? Aww.
In regards to his most recent project, Roy Kim revealed that he just wrote a song yesterday night in his hotel room! Apparently, due to insomnia, he drank wine alone in his room and that’s when he had inspiration for a new song. When asked to hint about his newly-written song, the tight-lipped singer wittily replied, “I was too drunk last night. I don’t remember well but it’s in my phone”. Well played Roy, well played :)
The singer will be continuing his studies in sociology next week at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. for about 4 months. “It’s good to have some time off from being famous,” he said. He also added that he would like to appear on TV more often this year.
Roy Kim, real name Kim Sangwoo (김상우), debuted in 2013 after winning Mnet’s talent competition “Superstar K4”. He released his first album “Love Love Love”, which included hit songs “Bom Bom Bom” (봄봄봄, which literally translated as “Spring Spring Spring”) and “Love Love Love”. The album was received with much fanfare and around 20,000 physical copies were sold.
