SBS’s show Star King has featured the surprising explosive singing of a young Filipino girl. Don’t you remember? The girl’s name is Charice Pempengco (Sharice Pempingko). After the market success of her debut album in the U.S. Billboard charts, she is now becoming a star and is back in Korea.
We spoke to Charice in the dressing room while waiting for the taping of ‘Kim Jung-eun’s Chocolate’.
(Note: Translated some parts from Cyworld Music)
BGM: Charice, Hi. We are Cyworld BGM, the no.1 online music service in Korea. Will you please say hello to your fans, Charice?
Charice Pempengco (Charice): Well .. I’m so glad to be back here. (Laughter.) South Korea is the country that means a lot to me, and I think another home. Every time I come here I really want to thank everyone.
BGM: Charice’s Star King appearance at that time surprised many viewers with Charice’s singing and many were cheering for you to succeed as a singer. Now that’s a vivid memory of a successful debut singer in Korea. How does it feel to come to Korea again?
Charice: Well like I said before, Korea is like another home for me, it’s played a big role in my life. The Korean TV show definitely helped me to succeed and become famous. Every time I remember how it helped me from the beginning, I always hoped to meet the people again.

BGM: Charice appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, touching many people with the passion and emotion she brings to a song. But the video of Charice’s introduction in Korea that people talked about is the show Star King. What do you think of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show or Star King’s atmosphere?
Charice: Mr. Kang Ho Dong of Star King let me be myself, it was really a fun atmosphere, I really enjoyed it. In my appearance in Ellen’s show, it was a more serious conversation. The talk was more serious and it made me nervous, trying to make a good impression. Maybe it was more fun in Star King, more like comedy! (Laughter.)
*omitted other stuff*
BGM: Charice, tell us your other favorite artist’s music. What are some of your favorites?
*omit omit omit*
Charice: Oh and one more can I say? Super Junior’s ‘Sorry Sorry’. The composer who wrote the song is my friend, Drew Ryan Scott, the song’s English version.
