Thanks to Joanne Chan of Channel U for the special arrangement to get Julie to attend to my below questions:
Qn: Which K-Pop Star left the deepest impression on you? Why?
Ans: ZE:A Hwang Kwang Hee. I tend to be reserved with K-pop stars because fans can get jealous. However, he told me to open up and be myself.

Qn: What is the greatest challenge when filming for the show?
Ans: Language barrier because I had to speak to the camera in Mandarin, and English to the K-pop stars with a basic Korean.
If you are looking into Touring at Korea, or into K-pop culture, you should not miss out this interesting travelogue program! Remember to stay tune to Channel U on 21 February, 9pm!
