Charice at Star King: Three-peat Engagement

Charice at Star King: Three-peat Engagement


Finally, Charice’s appearance on Star King aired on Korean television on July 24th. It marked the third appearance for Charice on the popular Korean television show and was highly anticipated as this is where her road to stardom began all the way back in 2007, when a smitten fan (Coolsmurf) posted the now famous video performance of Charice wowing the Korean judges.

Over 1,000 chasters were in the chatroom, which promptly crashed! And over 5,000 viewers were watching the livestream which aired from 2:30 to 3:30AM Pacific Time, 6:30PM in Korea. There were touching moments as Charice presented the host Kang Ho Dong with an autographed copy of her self-titled CD ‘Charice’ and a personal handwritten sign in Korean, translated “Thank you so much Starking ~Charice Pempengco.”

She had a duet with So Hyang performing ‘When You Believe’ (originally by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey), sang Bodyguard Medley,, and had a battle of sorts with Luna performing ‘One Moment In Time,’ after which she gave touching words of advice to “believe in yourself” that brought tears to Luna’s eyes.

Enjoy the videos!

Message from a Korean Chaster friend about ‘One Moment in Time’
performed by both Luna and Charice (video # 3 above):

Hi Schoen,
Luna is one of the famous singers.
Of course Charice is more more better than Luna.
But she is younger than Charice.
While Luna singing, a sound system was not good.
After her song, she said, she thought that “I can sing more good, but i can’t.”
At that time, a cast tell luna “you have to be here in Korea.”
The word means “Luna can’t success if she enter other countries.”
That’s why she cried.
I am sorry that Luna cried…
I want other chasters know this truth.
Yesterday, I am proud of Charice more and more~
It was great day.
Thanks~schoen – From Korea

Charice at Korean TV Show ‘Chocolate’

video uploaded by AllkpopIsAwesome


First Star King Appearance

October, 2007 – Charice performs And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going and a duet with Kyu Hyun of Super Junior, A Whole New World, while also charming the judges with her easy banter and dance moves

Original upload by Coolsmurf; HQ upload by bidangbata2

It was that amazing performance that caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres on the other side of the world and prompted claims that the little girl in the video was lip syncing! Fortunately, Ellen believed it and was impressed enough to make a televised plea to Charice, ai???If anyone knows this girl, tell her we want her. [Ellen points her finger to the camera] ai???Youai??i?? come here…ai???

>>> The Ellen Plea Video <<<


Ellen Degeneres Show

Charice made her very first visit to America for that fateful performance in November, 2007, when she again wowed the audience and received her first ever standing ovation from the incredulous audience as she confidently worked the stage to belt out And Iai??i??m Telling You Iai??i??m Not Going (the song made famous by Jennifer Hudson in her Oscar-winning role in the Dream Girls movie).

>>> The Ellen Performance <<<

Ellen and her studio audience were obviously smitten as well as they watched Charice perform flawlessly with the now common ‘jaws dropped effect’ that a live Charice performance tends to elicit. Ellen had watched Charice during rehearsals and it prompted her to make this crystal-ball gazing introduction: ai???She’s 15 years old. You are gonna be blown away. This is the most incredible gift Iai??i??m giving you today. You’re gonna go, ‘I was there the day that girl was on the show.’ She is amazing. ” And the next day… “We just watched her begin her stardom. You can just smell the star on her.”

The rest, as they say, is history as it marked the beginning of Chariceai??i??s fairytale journey as she continued on to appear in the Oprah Show, Paul Oai??i??Grady Show (London), Madison Square Garden-New York with Celine Dion, Tuscany-Italy with Andrea Bocelli, President Obama inaugural galas, Oscar Night parties, and the David Foster Hitman Concert, 10-city tour & numerous fundraising galas with Foster throughout 2008 and 2009. In all of these shows, Charice consistently showed her vocal power and perfect pitch as she garnered standing ovations at every appearance from appreciative crowds who surely recognized her great voice and stage presence when they saw it.


Star King Appearance… Again

After that first Ellen Show, Charice was again invited back to Star King in December, 2007, after a poll in which Korean viewers voted Charice as the most favorite guest that they would like to return to Star King for an encore performance.

Star King Second Appearance – duet with Lena Park

Now we are happy to announce that Charice has once again been invited to Star King for a repeat third engagement! (“three-peat”) This time, however, she will be a young lady of 18 with a hit record under her belt Pyramid, her new international self-titled CD CHARICE (produced by Warner Bros./Reprise Records), and the incredible achievement of being the first Asian artist ever to not only hit the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, but to debut there at # 8 in the CD’s first week of release!

Weai??i??re proud of you, Charice, and weai??i??re excited to see your triumphant return to the show where it all started. You have come full circle, but this is by no means the end of your journey. Your fairy tale story continues on a dizzying spin of appearances which began several weeks ago in America and that continues this month on a swing through Asia.

Asia Tour

Chariceai??i??s Asian Tour to promote her album begins in Korea next week where she will stop by Star King on July 12th to pre-tape the show to be aired on Korean TV on July 24th. Her Asia Tour will continue on a swing from Korea to Philippines to Japan to Thailand and, finally, Malaysia.


There isnai??i??t an artist who deserves success Write my essay and accolades more than Charice, who started from very humble beginnings. We are so proud of you Charice.

    Luna’s shirt says “Please do not feed the models”, something that is quite funny

    however, after that incident with someone shouting something rude, derogatory and discouraging that made her cry, this reminds us to be careful of what we “feed” upcoming talent, lest we nip them in the bud.

    on the other side, we must also protect ourselves against the “bad food” others may send us to pull us down.

    as an aside, does anyone know what that round tag on Charice’s waist says?

      Charice had experienced a deluge of derogatory and discouraging comments… up to togay, but knows how to use them to her advantage. Another amazing talent!
      Round tag says CHARICE PEMPENGCO, so Korean viewers know who the guest is.

        thanks ReyBorja

        you are absolutely right – knowing how to deal with criticism and discouragement is another talent, seldom mentioned but nevertheless very important. To be able to deal with criticism is an indication of a well-placed sense of self-esteem. To be able to continue on inspite of discouragement is an indication of character.

    That is Charice!! When the girl opens her mouth, your mouth too will open and worst though, it will jaw drop. So make sure you close it so no fly will zoom in. She is AWESOME.

    Not like my wife when she opens her mouth in the morning, all she say is,

    Honey!! did you cook breakfast!! Did you take out the Dog!!!
    Are you in the computer again with Charice!!! And I say, no I’m not!!! But my hands are all over Charicemania!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

      I gave a THUMBS UP to this amusing FUNNY story…it makes my day great! So far my hubby would always say: What’s up honey with our dear Princess?

      And of course, I would talk and talk and mind you, HE WOULD NOT RESPONDS AT ALL…and I asked any violent reaction?

      He would replied with a pause in every word like you are eating your favorite chocolate and you feel the taste is realllllllly good….he would say it like this very slow with a pause: Everything is great and as a good husband who loves his wife, I have no choice but to listen to my beautiful wife.


      We would have a great laugh after this..Charice’s magic really soars in our personal relationship.

      This is great that Charicemania team may consider a collection of funny and amusing story like what Daddy O wrote… CHA-MUSING CHADDICT STORY WITH A GREAT PUNCHLINE for LAUGHER IS THE BEST MEDICINE, GOOD FOR THE HEART TOO..just as we love Starking host and the audience reaction, Daddy O was creative to share his amusing story.

      Chao and sending good thoughts of love and good health to all Chasters and here…of course to dear Princess Charice and her family.

    @ Arrvee – a unifying effect indeed. There’s a last paragraph from my write up that I deleted as it’s getting too long, wherein I was playfully recommending to make her a goodwill ambassador to at least the ASEAN nations and am also requesting Warner to let her visit the remainder of Asia if time and schedule permits. All of a sudden, I felt a special kinship to these people after witnessing their love and affection to our sweetheart Charice.

    Charice indeed has come full circle with her latest appearance at Star King, where everything started. I have always been looking forward to this event, where Charice will return triumphantly to that show, with a convincing top ten showing at the Billboard 200 and accolades from everyone and everywhere. And she did not disappoint. Her entrance, with that sweet smile and the self written board, (albeit in Korean) of her gratitude to the program says it all. While Arrvee stated “you had me at MSG, and we will always have Madison, she had me in her first appearance at Star King and yes, we will always have Star King and that explains the bliss that I have been experiencing of late. Reflecting on her successful Asian visit….the enthusiasm of the Japanese, of the enormous crowd in Thailand that rivals Toronto, the Korean’s pure joy of having her back in that magical show and the Philippines’ delight in welcoming their very own are all etched in everyone’s consciousness by now. Charice really transcends borders, language, colors and culture. What an accomplishment indeed!!!!

      @Teepee, like you, I was in shock and awe with the first 2 Star King performances, and I’ve viewed them countless times. But it was her MSG performance where she reached deeper and grabbed me by the heart, that took me a while to figure out why …

      and when we see how she transcends the borders you mention, she creates a unifying effect among us, don’t you think?

    I rejoice at the triumph and success that Charice has gained this far. I know that because she has emtremely strong work ethic and a powerful team, esp. her mother, she will go farther and reach higher stars soon. Let’s help her, support her, and be her cheerleaders. Like you all, I can NOT let a day pass without watching her performances again and again. By the way, I am a 63-year old grandma.

    Know what my morning ritual is? Watching Charice in Star King 1st and 3rd visit again and again. She soothes my aching heart as my sister just had her chemo and so far away from me. She is in Canada. Watching her antiques with Mr. Kang Ho Dong makes me laugh. Her performances with Khu-yun and Soh-yang are truly amazing. I love watching the amazement looks on the other guests faces especially the K-pop singers. Their mouth gaping and even their star struck gazes. It helps me forget a moment of sadness and give me a warm feeling by watching their reactions and hearing her sing. Charice, you are like a soothing balm that heals an aching wound. Your warm personality makes someone feel you are close to them and that you are a reachable star. No arrogance or malice in your small but powerful frame. You are indeed a gift that should be cherish.

      Hi Dang. Is your sister a Chaster? There is no better therapy than the power of love and happiness. Like you said once you watch her videos or listen to her music for those moments you can put yourself in a better place.

        Thanks jim, unfortunately, she hasn’t the time or energy to watch her video cause most of the time were spent in therapy or in hospital. She is also suffering from severe scoliosis so she can’t really stay too long sitting and easily gets tired. I have asked her to watch the video in this website as even before I discovered this website, I always watch Charice in the youtube. But this website has a better reception and the video is definitely clearer. I never fail to watch this every morning even while chatting with my sister if she is strong enough to sit for a while. If not, I get my news about her from my other sister who is also in Canada. Thank so much for your concern and hope everything is A-okay with you and your family. God Bless.

          Hi Dang. Sorry your sister is experiencing so much pain. Just as a suggestion, even if she is unable to watch Charice videos, maybe she could have her cds playing in the room on a cd player. Hearing her is always a positive moment for me. Of course I cannot even remotely feel what your sister is feeling, so I may be way off base with this. If I am, I apologize – it’s just that her music makes me feel so good and for me is very soothing.

          I will keep you in my prayers. Right now things are going good for me and my family, so I will count my blessings and not take anything for granted.

          Take care.

    CHARICE, A CROSSOVER – not only to all music genre but also to the other side. No wonder why very very few Asians before was able to crossed over the border towards unfamiliar territory of world stage. Charice definitely has raised the bar of singing criteria inspiring you to do more… work hard… what you have was not good enough… the sky is not the limit. Vote for CHARICE, Ambassador of World HIT – Hope, Inspiration & Talent…
