Korean star makes sandwiches for fans

Korean star makes sandwiches for fans

A half-eaten sandwich got the loudest screams at Korean actor-singer Kim Kibum's fan meeting last Friday.

Clustered in a group, several fans were shrieking over the remaining quarter of a sandwich their friend, Miss Hilda Lim, 22, had. She was one of eight girls invited on stage to get a ham and cheese sandwich made for them by their idol.

"We're going to frame it up!" screamed 18-year-old educator Fateha Fakar.

Kim, 26, the star of Korean drama I Love Italy and a non-active member of popular K-pop boy band Super Junior, was in town last week for his Memory Of Love fan meeting at The Star Performing Arts Centre.

The two-hour show saw him sing, performing magic tricks, playing a Korean game with fans and trying his hand at making sandwiches.

"I'm nervous because I've never cooked for anyone except my mother," he said on stage.

Though the girls had been asked to eat their sandwiches on stage, Miss Lim, who works in licensing at the Ministry of Health, took two bites of her half of the sandwich and saved the rest for her friends, who had a hard time deciding how to divide the portion among themselves.

So how did it taste?

National University of Singapore student Nie Yile, 22, said it was "very good".

"(Kibum) made it, obviously it's good," she said with a giggle.

She wasn't the only one who left the venue in seventh heaven.
