SINGAPORE – K-drama Prince Sung Hoon has no qualms giving us a glimpse of his personal life on the reality show, I Live Alone.
At home, he looks like any regular joe — with messy hair and an unshaven face. At the pool, the former national swimmer’s perfectly sculpted abs are on full display.
There’s one thing he hopes he’ll never have to do again — sing.”I don’t have a specific genre that I really like. But I don’t really listen to hip hop. But I listen to EDM, pop and other Korean music. I do put it into shuffle and play it.”
Remember how Sung Hoon shrivelled into a ball watching himself serenade a room full of fans on ‘I Live Alone’.
On the possibility of releasing an album, Sung Hoon resolutely said: “Absolutely not.”
“I sang for comedic effect on ‘I Live Alone’. I recorded songs not to make money, but to entertain my fans. It’s a great way to communicate with them,” said Sung Hoon.
“If it’s to have fun with my fans, maybe I would consider singing. But at the moment, absolutely not.”
Sung Hoon was in town on Friday to promote ‘I Live Alone’, a series which chronicles celebrities’ daily life. Sung Hoon’s appearance is a part of a series of promotional activites in the lead up to StarHub Night of Stars 2019.
Later that evening, the hunk drew hordes of fans to meet and greet session at City Square Mall.
Fans fell in love with his prince charming characters in K-Dramas I Picked Up The Star and My Secret Romance. In a rare instance, he lent his vocals to the OST of My Secret Romance. He sang a sweet duet ‘Same’ with the female lead, Song Ji Eun.
As audiences have seen in ‘I Live Alone’, Sung Hoon is nothing like the dreamy male leads in reality.
But if Sung Hoon could live like his rich TV characters, he’d like a private jet. The reason will make you go aww.
“I want to travel around with my pet, Yanghee,” said Sung Hoon, whose adopted dog appears on ‘I Live Alone’.
“Because she’s afraid of entering the cage. She can’t fly here with me.”
