Lim Young-woong to stage special performance at Melon Music Awards
Singer Lim Young-woong will stage a special performance at the upcoming 2022 Melon Music Awards presented by Kakao Bank.
The event is set to take place on Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. at Gocheok Sky Dome in western Seoul. It will also be streamed via different platforms including Melon, KakaoTV, Wavve as well as 1theK channel on YouTube, U-NEXT for those in Japan, CXO Media for viewers in Indonesia and FPT Play for those in Vietnam.
During the event, Lim will be performing his new songs “Polaroid” and “London Boy” live for the first time. Lim released the two songs on Tuesday and the music video for “London Boy” on Wednesday morning. He’ll also showcase some of his hits from his first full-length album “Im Hero.”
Lim has been a trot sensation since he won TV Chosun’s hit audition show “Mr. Trot” in 2020, which revived the music genre in Korea.
In 2021, he won first place on a major television music show; the first for a trot song in 16 years. His first full-length album “Im Hero,” which dropped in May, sold over 1.1 million copies in the first week of its release — the highest CD sales number ever recorded by a Korean solo artist, breaking the previous record set in 2021 by Baekhyun of Exo, a popular K-pop boy band. Lim is also one of the most popular figures on television and in advertisements.
