Hey Candy Girls!

Hailing from the realm of Interns, your guest speaker today is Arianne! I’ve been working with the Candy Team for two weeks now, and having said that, it is my great honor to be able to say that they let me attend a press conference today, at the Eastwood Richmonde Hotel.

Are any of you KPOP fans?

I hope so! Because I’m about to give you a short account of my first Press Conference, Jay Park’s.

He’s really sweet, you know? He joked around with his sponsors on stage, took a formal shot and a whacky shot with each big representative that was called on stage. A lot of his fans call him a little boy trapped in a 23-year old body, I could really see why!

He also talked about life as an idol – he said that being an idol was difficult because he had to do things on his own, sing entire songs on his own and it took strenuous tolls on his health. But at the same time, he said it was enthralling, because having been given the creative freedom to do as he pleased, he felt that he could truly express himself as an artist. Ah, he was so professional and smooth!

He also said that if he had the time, one of the things he’s really wanted to do is check out the Filipino night scene. See what hip hop is like here, and how many people he can touch with his music. And to everyone who aspires to become a Hallyu Idol like Jay, he said to always work hard and never give up on your dreams.

The interesting part about that last paragraph was that I asked both questions that garnered those answers, and today I learned that I throw words out like pullets of a shotgun when I’m nervous! He told me to slow down, and he laughed. But hey, at least I got him to laugh. ^^;;

At the end of the 12-minute press conference, there was another photo op, and while everyone hounded the stage, I stood back a bit. The best part? I called out – “JAY!” – and shot my hand up to call his attention, and I got this~

Looked me straight in the eye(lens), and snap! ^^ Honestly the best experience ever. Thank you, Candy!
