Singer Junjin has lavished generous praise on skater Kim Yuna, whom he met during a recent recording of MBC variety show Infinite Challenge.
In a recent interview with Newsen, Junjin said, “I met Kim Yuna for the first time on Infinite Challenge, in the form of a hidden camera segment. It was really embarrassing but I was still really glad.”
Currently active as a member of Infinite Challenge, Junjin recorded an episode together with Kim Yuna at the end of April.
Junjin recounted his first meeting with Kim Yuna, “I can only say she’s amazing. Although she’s very young, but she’s very mature for her age. I can feel the crazy passion she has for her work.”
“Despite her young age, her sense of professional awareness is very strong. Though the age gap between us is very big, but just from a regular person’s point of view, she’s really an amazing person.”
Junjin is now in the midst of promotional activities for his new mini-album Fascination, which he released not too long ago. Prior to the actual release date, all 10,000 copies of the special edition album had already been sold out.
In addition, Junjin also kicked off his Asia tour at the end of May, and plans to cover 8-9 other countries in the region, including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Thailand.
