With Charice just wrapping up a visit to Korea on several television shows which will air later this month, this Korean documentary has resurfaced on YouTube which featured Charice way back in early 2008. We were asked to post it at Charicemania so here it is, the article we wrote awhile back, for all older and newer chasters alike to enjoy!
It was only two years ago today, on October 13, 2007, that Charice made her first ‘special guest’ appearance on the Korean talent show, Star King. Her explosive performance of ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,’ her sweet duet singing ‘A Whole New World’ with Korean star, Kyuhyun from SuperJunior, and her easy banter with the host and judges simply charmed the Korean audience. She became a YouTube Internet sensation, generating 13 million hits and scoring an invitation to the Ellen show in her first appearance on U.S. television on December 19, 2007, and her first-ever visit to America.
Following the Ellen show , she appeared for a second time on StarKing on December 28, 2007, after being voted the Most Requested Foreign Act of 2007. And shortly after, a Korean television crew paid Charice a visit to the Philippines to do a mini-documentary of her career and how it all came about through the efforts of one enterprising fan, FalseVoice.
A timely video of that documentary is now available with an English translation. With her subsequent appearance on the Oprah show , on May 12, 2008, the rest as they say is history!
