Boom, a comedian who recently confessed to having done cosmetic surgery, said his virtual character resembles Cha Eun Woo’s face.
On Dec 27th, a production presentation for Kakao TV’s “GIRLS RE:VERSE” was held at the Stanford Hotel in Sangam-dong, Seoul. The event was attended by CP Cho Wook Hyung, CP Park Jin Kyung, PD Son Soo Jung, PD Cho Joo Jeon, singer Bada, comedian Boom, choreographer Aiki, and Pengsoo.
“GIRLS RE:VERSE” is Korea’s first virtual idol debut survival where 30 idols from K-pop girl groups compete for a chance to debut as an idol in the virtual world. 30 former and current female idol will compete to become the final five debut members by showing their dance and singing skills through their new virtual characters.
Boom said, “After the first filming finished, all my worries just vanished. The pace was so fast and there were a lot of fun situations. All the cast members seem to enjoy it even more because they got to create the character they want. I lost track of time watching the girls going with each other’s flow,” he said.
“I’m also grateful and sorry for using Cha Eun Woo‘s face as my virtual world character. I’m living another life,” he said.
About the advantages of a virtual world entertainment program, Bada said, “I don’t have to worry about my wrinkles or outfits. All you have to do is use VR, not go to the beauty salon,” she said. “The cast members also have perfect confidence through their own characters in terms of appearance, so if they sing well, I think they will have the confidence to show a perfect stage. Everyone’s voices are so pretty and they stay in character perfectly with their virtual selves,” she said confidently.
The 12-episode “GIRLS RE:VERSE” will premiere on Kakao Page and YouTube at 9 p.m. on January 2nd, 2023.
