CUCKOO successfully held its “Appreci8th Anniversary” concert in Axiata Arena over the weekend. The crowd in attendance were treated with a series of spectacular performances from local artistes including Dolla, Floor 88, Khai Bahar, Aina Abdul and Misha Omar. The star-studded show also featured special appearances by Brand Ambassadors Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza and the man of the hour, Lee Min Ho (이민호).
One of the highlighted moments that had fans talking was when TokTi quickly snapped some selfie pics with the K-drama heartthrob himself! The popular celeb took to her Instagram yesterday (Sunday, 2nd October) to share with her fans about the pleasant experience of meeting Min Ho in person. In her post, TokTi also talked about how nervous she was while trying to snap selfies with the handsome actor.
“Security is usually tight for international stars such as @actorleeminho. Everything has to be in accordance with his management and no photos are allowed unless it is taken by an official photographer. But the moment I went up on the stage (with Min Ho), I wasn’t going to let go of the opportunity to take a selfie with him. I then asked (CUCKOO founder) Mr. KC Hoe, ‘Can I take selfies with him? (I was afraid that they won’t allow it),” Siti shared.
The “Nirmala” singer added, “Mr. KC then told me, ‘Just go for it. I told myself, if his bodyguards came up, I’m prepared to show off my Mat Kilau ‘silat’ skills. What else should I do since the golden opportunity was right in front of my eyes? I gave a hint to Mr. KC, while smiling at LMH (Min Ho). I asked for a selfie with him, and he said yes! Light lightning speed, my fingers started clicking. Snap, snap and snap! Haha. Luckily, the bodyguards didn’t come up on the stage. Yes! Mission accomplished!!”
During his appearance at the event, Min Ho – who appeared on the stage looking dapper in an all-black outfit – also expressed his admiration of the iconic songbird’s “beautiful voice”. “I’m not familiar with Malaysian singers, but I know some of them are superb and world class, especially Siti Nurhaliza,” the “Boys Over Flowers” star said. Fingers crossed that we will get to see a collab between the two CUCKOO ambassadors very soon.
With that said, we hope you enjoyed your short stay here in Malaysia, Min Ho! At the same time, we also would like to wish CUCKOO a happy birthday!
