On June 4th, KBS’s idol music program, “Immortal Song 2“, aired its pilot episode with SISTAR’s Hyorin crowned as the top winner. PD Kwon Jae Young revealed that he was proud of her win and expressed his goals for the program in a recent interview with Star News.
PD Kwon began, “The moment Hyorin won, it was an extremely proud moment for me. Through her win, I feel like we accurately portrayed what we intended to show through this program. Our aim is to show the talent that idols possess, since they’re often veiled under the stereotype of being idols. Hyorin has always just been known as a member of SISTAR, so I’m glad that people can see what talents she has to offer as a ’singer.’”
He continued, “‘Immortal Song 2′ is filmed in the same building as ‘Music Bank.’ Staff members that were only used to see Hyorin on stage for ‘Music Bank’ were all surprised with her performance that day. I, too, did not think that Hyorin had such an explosive potential in her. The minute I saw her stage, I intuitively knew that she would win.”
The next episode will see SECRET’s Ji Eun take the place of IU. Stay tuned for June 11th!
