Like most pop stars, all-girl K-pop group 4Minute were late - by 30 minutes - to meet their fans at Plaza Singapura on Tuesday evening.
Not that the 3,500 fans really minded. They went wild when the girls appeared.
But the six winners of a contest to get up close and personal with the group got less than they bargained for, They could only pose for photos with the girls. They were not allowed to present their gifts to their idols and did not even get to shake hands with them.
