Let the games begin - 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou CHINA

The 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou, China begins today. It took 6 years of planning and billions of dollars in investment. After witnessing the Beijing Olympics, you can expect a spectacular Asian Games. Like the Beijing Games, the Guangzhou Asian Games have 5 mascots! The mascot design is based on a legend about five immortals who took five rams to Guangzhou, each holding an ear of corn in its mouth. There, the immortals prayed for an end to famine, then flew into the sky as the five rams turned into fossils.

Kim Hyun Joong along with other artists will sing the Game’s theme song at the opening ceremony.

Also, Kim Hyun Joong recently did an interview on CNN’s Asia Talk. I posted up the video on facebook so you can have a watch. The interviewer may be a familiar face to you! It’s Aussie Anna Coren, she use to host Today Tonight. Kim talks about his drama ‘Playful Kiss’ and how youtube help make it a success.
