Entertainment and fashion magazine GanGee has released its photoshoot with M.I.B star Kangnam, who has become an up-and-coming variety show star.
In the interview following the shoot, Kangnam spoke about his motivation for coming to Korea from his native Japan. He said, “The reason why I came to Korea is that I wanted to rise to the top of the music scene.”
The singer also revealed that he took his K-pop inspiration from a performance by a veteran Korean star. Kangnam explained, “When I was in Hawaii, I went to the filming of an episode of a KBS music show. I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw a performance by Park Jin Young (also known as JYP). It really made me think that I also wanted to perform on stage in Korea.”
Kangnam’s full interview and pictorial spread can be seen in the November edition of GanGee.
