Hailing from South Korea, Yohan Hwang was declared the first grand touristar of the singing competition for foreigners in the country, I Love OPM which was concluded last Saturday, April 23. Aside from his talent for singing Filipino songs, his good looks also captured the hearts of the viewers.
In an exclusive interview with PUSH.com.ph, the Korean singer-heartthrob admitted that winning I Love OPM brought him mixed emotions. “Actually, I had two emotions like the one is super happy and the other emotion was like I was very worried. Is it okay even (if) I got this prize? Something like that. Am I deserving? (I am not) sure if I deserve to win or what,” he said, thinking about the comments of the people.
After winning the singing contest, what’s next for Yohan? “Maybe an album. I want to have an album, my own Tagalog songs. It’s really great,” he said. And although he admitted having no time to enroll in a Filipino class as of now, he is willing to take a tutorial class. Yohan is also interested in joining show business, “Acting, dancing, I want to try everything, seriously.”
