SINGAPORE - Korean rapper and host of popular Korean entertainment show Running Man Kang Gary and his singing partner, Jung-In, who are in Singapore for the first time, performed at the Padang on Saturday evening.
Their free concert was part of the NTU Fest 2014 - a 1-day event that is meant to be the highlight for the university's freshmen week.
According to the National Technological University (NTU), some 8,000 members of the public showed up at the event, which also had a carnival and a fun run. Education Minister, Mr Heng Swee Keat was present earlier this afternoon to flag off the 4.8km 5TYLO Milo-O fun run.
"Proceeds from the sale of carnival coupons, and the $10 registration fee for the 4.8-km 5TYLO Mile-O fun run will go towards the ITE Endowment Fund which provides financial assistance to needy ITE students," said NTU in a statement.
Hosts for the evening concert were 98.7FM's radio deejays Gerald Koh and Kimberly Wang.
Homegrown bands The Huckleberry Friends and District 12, Final 1 champion Farisha Ishak and the finalists of Project Superstar, Singapore's popular singing competition, also belt out their vocals during the concert, while the new cast of Mata-Mata, including Rebecca Lim, Pan Ling Ling, Priscelia Chan, Cynthia Koh, Divian Nair, Fish Chaar and Rayve Tay entertained the audience by playing games with the crowd.
