Puah Shien Yi, 18, and her brother Ming Woo, 17 were among the fans at the mall to watch Kim’s performance.
“I like Jong Kook the best because he is a great singer and he has such a lovable and cute personality, despite having a buff physique,” said Shien Yi, who was holding a placard with well wishes in Korean on it.
Meanwhile, Ming Woo confessed to liking Kim because he was a strong player in the gameshow series.
“Despite that, he still seems like a kind and fun person who treats his other teammates with respect,” he said.
