K-pop star Kim Hyun Joong shook hands with and high-fived every one of the 3,000-strong crowd of mainly women who had gathered at his fan-meet at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last night.
No surprise then, that in the one hour and 15 minutes that it took for him to complete his unenviable feat, he was seen supporting himself with his other hand on the table.
At times, he was seen massaging his chest with his free hand, his face showing signs of weariness. Nevertheless, he continued to smile and greet every fan.
Before the gruelling session, Kim had performed for two hours, singing hits like Kiss Kiss and I'm Your Man, and playing games with the audience.
A fan was heard remarking, almost out of pity for Kim, that not once did he wipe his hand even when it was a given that he must have touched plenty of “disgusting, clammy palms”.
