Singers Rim Kim and Sam Kim appeared in “Afternoon Hope” and shared their updates after a long time.
MBC FM4U’s “I’m Kim Shin-young, the Song for Afternoon Hope” (hereinafter referred to as “Afternoon Hope”) aired on the 25th, featured singers Rim Kim (Kim Ye-rim) and Sam Kim as guests.
On this day, Sam Kim opened the door by singing the song “It’s You (Feat. ZICO)” released in November 2018. In particular, his sweet guitar skills drew attention. DJ Kim Shin-young, who was watching this, praised Sam Kim, saying, “Other geniuses, tone geniuses, and the pride of the Kim family.”
Kim Shin-young also asked, “Among the singer songwriters, I’m with Sam Kim, a guitar genius, and Rim Kim, a force master. Are you two meant to each other. Sam Kim and Rim Kim said, “I’ve never seen it before.” “I listen to songs often, so I feel like I’m close to them.”
Kim Shin-young said, “Sam Kim’s real name is Kim Gun-ji.” Referring to Rim Kim, Sam Kim said, “Didn’t you change your real name from Kim Ye-rim to Rim Kim? I’m thinking about changing the name of the activity because I’m worried about getting it. While many people know Sam Kim, I am worried that his name overlaps with Chef Sam Kim,” he said. “I should have done it in advance.”
A listener of “Afternoon Hope” said, “When I listen to “SAL-KI” or “Yellow,” which was first released by Rim Kim, I get shocked. What happened after 2016?” he asked about Rim Kim’s music style, which has changed dramatically.
Rim Kim, who made his debut as a mixed duo two-month with Do Dae-yoon in the 2011 Mnet audition program “Superstar K3,” has mainly performed music featuring a calm and lyrical atmosphere.
Rim Kim said, “Since the music, look, and name are changing, there are so many people who don’t know me that I thought I was a different person even since 2016, so I had that desire and worked on it for about three years. I created a new identity, experimented a lot, and worked a lot. I didn’t originally make music, but I think it was a time for me to run by myself during that time,” she looked back on the past time.
Another listener asked, “What made Sam Kim start playing the guitar for the first.” Sam Kim said, “I have a favorite kid at school and he brought me a guitar. They asked me to type in a song that I like. So I learned how to play the guitar right away and it was fun.
When Sam Kim replied to the additional question, “Did love come true?” Kim Shin-young said, “Didn’t your dream come true instead? We have to give up one of the two,” he said, drawing laughter.
Kim Shin-young then asked the two people who had been inactive, “Do some activities,” and “When will Sam Kim’s album come out?” “I have to do it now,” Sam Kim said. “Thankfully, the agency antenna is waiting for us. I think the album will come out when I wake up.”
Rim Kim asked, “Do you have any desire to be on the show?” “No. But I didn’t do radio often because there were a lot of songs in English. But I am very grateful if you invite me.
At the end of the show, Rim Kim said, “I’ve been working with music, but I’m planning to be more active in many places starting today. We are also preparing new music, so please look forward to it.”
Sam Kim said, “I’m also thankful to the fans who have been waiting for me for a long time.” “I hope you all cheer up during hard times.” If you wait a little longer, I will show you a good side of me.
Meanwhile, Rim Kim released a new song, “MAGO,” on the 8th. Sam Kim appeared as a singer’s best friend in SBS entertainment program “My Fantasy House,” which aired on the 24th, and held a telecommuting concert with a loading band.
