SINGAPORE – Seungri made an appearance for it’s exclusive preview to the media and a few lucky fans just today at HeadRock VR, which will be Singapore’s first ever VR theme park that will open in Resorts World Sentosa on 17 November 2018, 10AM which showcase 11 exhilarating attractions.
The walls were plastered with light projects and each individual ride had flashing neon lights, fusing aesthetic design for your #OOTD picture as well as state-of-the-art technology together.
Mr Park Hong Que, founder and CEO of Mediafront mentioned that Mediafront is now the pioneer in the new entertainment business through integrating arts and technology, digital and analogue, having 20 years of experience in the industry. A third of their products are already able to be found in large theme parks in Korea, Japan and even Las Vegas!
Seungri commenced his QnA session by explaining the reason why he decided to be the Creative Director of this new VR venture. It was mostly due to his nature of wanting to see people have fun and enjoy in life, which is the overlying reason as to why he does Aori Ramen (his own F&B business) as well as this project as well.
We know everyone has 24 hours a day, so when he was asked about how he juggles his time between his performances, appearances on TV and his various business, he stated that lately he has been cutting down on sleep and joked with the fans there as they’ve often called him a “panda”. He went on to explain that he has been wanting to study and seek knowledge and that he spends a lot of his time studying as now information is readily made available online.
He ended it off with a light-hearted question to choose which Big Bang member he would feature in a VR game and he chose G-Dragon whereby G-Dragon could be an avatar where the player would try to level up like how by his explanation, we guess its like nurturing your Tamagotchi and leveling up G-Dragon so that he’ll turn into a superstar in the game.
Seungri also gave the Flying Dive ride, Jungle Rafting, Extreme Train rides a try with fans that won the slogan creating contest held days ago on HeadRock VR’s social media page.
Be sure to head on down to HeadRock VR Singapore located at Resorts World Sentosa once it opens its’ doors to the public on the 17th of November to try out the rides that Seungri has gone on and the other exciting rides too!
