Shin Hae-chul, the leader of the rock band N.EX.T., has talked about his expectations and the pressure he has felt ahead of his first cross-over performance with the British Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
“This will be the most difficult performance in my 18-year career,” Shin told reporters in Seoul on Tuesday. “I feel so tense and pressured that I am preparing for it even all night.”
He also expressed his expectation that the performance can set an example for similar performances in the future, saying, “It will be a place to show the level of Korean music and technology.”
The British orchestra will also perform with other popular Korean singers including Lee Soo-young, SG Wannabe, Big Mama, and Vibe in Seoul, Busan and Daegu from May 25 through 28, after holding a concert at the National Theater of Korea in Seoul on May 24. The performances with N.EX.T. will last from May 25 through 27.
