On May 18, Billlie‘s Tsuki was a featured guest on MBC every1‘s South Korean Foreigners, a variety show and competition where famous non-Koreans compete against South Korean nationals to answer questions on Korean history, culture, and society.
In the episode, Tsuki wowed the audience with her dance skills…
…and demonstrated her knowledge of Korean culture through various quiz questions.
However, at one point during the episode, Tsuki unexpectedly burst out in tears!
It all started when another guest on the show, singer Lee Sejoon from the ballad duo Yurisangja serenaded the cast and audience with a special performance.
Host Kim Yong Man then noticed that Tsuki started crying.
The rest of the cast members and guests asked Tsuki about the reason behind her sudden tears.
The lyrics are a bit hard for me to understand, but… I’m so honored to be able to hear the song live like this. I’m so [happy].
The song that Lee Sejoon sang, titled “I Love You”, is actually a well-known 1983 Japanese pop ballad by singer Ozaki Yutaka.
Lee Sejoon’s cover performance featured a Korean rendition of the Japanese lyrics, symbolizing a bridge between Tsuki’s Japanese heritage and her career in South Korea.
Needless to say, Tsuki’s gratitude towards the performance was truly touching.
