One side was still cold as usual, while one side was so excited to the extent that they had to record by phones.
Every time an award ceremony ends, the audience has the opportunity to discuss with all that happened. 2018 Asia Artist Awards is no exception. Considered as a chaotic award ceremony, AAA 2018 has become the centerpiece of the Kpop fan community because of the many unforgettable errors of the organizers. In addition, many of the stories on the sidelines of the awards ceremony have also been featured online since last night.
Being one of the few awards ceremonies in Korea honoring artists in both film and music, AAA 2018 quickly attracted a lot of attention from the audience thanks to the line- up, including top actors and idols in Korea. For that reason, many people are beginning to look forward to moments of interaction between idols and actors, which are not easily seen at other events. In particular, many people wondered if the top cast would react in the face of idol groups at 2018 Asia Artist Awards.
It has been a long time since the idols’ reaction to other idol groups’ stage has become a controversial subject, as most of them has cold attitude. Most recently, when TWICE performed the song “Yes Or Yes” at the Blue Dragon Film Awards, the same controversy once again exploded as many of the actors were without any reaction, while others actresses were excited and sang along. Many people believe that their reaction is not difficult to understand when the idol group stage does not fit the seriousness of the film awards. At this point, people start to wonder if the same situation occurs at a lively music award.
The questions of the audience have been answered at this year’s AAA awards. Since all the artists were arranged below the main stage, fans were able to watch their reactions when others performed on stage. And surprisingly, the famous actors present at the awards night had a completely opposite reaction to the two performances of Kpop idols.
BTS is undoubtedly one of the artists that have brought the hottest atmosphere to the 2018 Asia Artist Awards. The group’s performance with the two songs “Fake Love” and “IDOL” really made the stage burst, and the audience, as well as the fans, also hummed singing along with excitement. However, in some fan-recorded fan cams, many famous celebrities in the front row, such as Yoo Yeon Seok, Lee Byung Hyun, Ha Jung Woo, Joo Ji Hoon, are still sitting solemnly in the midst of that atmosphere. It is clear that it’s the opposite of Sunmi – who was sitting very close to them at the time when she was very enthusiastic.
Meanwhile, at the same time idol groups such as TWICE, MONSTA X, IZ * ONE, Wanna One, … are more comfortable as they continuously swing to the tune of BTS.
However, with another stage at AAA 2018, the cast has a completely opposite expression. According to many fans present at the award yesterday, while Sunmi performed on stage, Ha Jung Woo, Joo Ji Hoon, and actress Lee Da Hee were even so excited to pull out the phone to record her performance.
During the live stream with the fans after the end of the awards ceremony, Sunmi personally confirmed this story. Sunmi shared her surprise when she learned that Ha Jung Woo and Joo Ji Hoon were fans and that it was a miracle that these celebrities were filming her performance at AAA 2018.
Fancam recorded a brief interaction between Sunmi, Joo Ji Hoon and Ha Jung Woo behind the stage.
Netizens have also discovered that Ha Jung Woo has long admitted that he is a fan of the Wonder Girls.
After this situation, the audience began to believe that the reaction of the actors watching the idol groups did not depend on the nature of the awards ceremony but simply on the idols performing.
