I don’t think the 400 or so students in Singapore Polytechnic were prepared when Kang Gary walked out on stage to start singing “헤어지지 못하는 여자, 떠나가지 못하는 남자 (Girl Who Can’t Leave, Boy Who Can’t Break Up)” in the middle of what was supposed to be a career talk in the middle of school vacation.
Gary was filming for a new reality series called School’s OUT, an original production conceptualised by leading Korean guru CJ E&M and Asian channel, channel M.
Apart from performing, Gary also played some games with the students in the auditorium. It was basically a fan meeting of sorts. How cool is that?
After the performance and games in the auditorium, Gary then headed to the Food Paradise (Singapore Polytechnic Food Court 3) to sample some local food!
Needless to say, throngs of students followed Gary and the crew around as they filmed for School’s OUT.
Jeris Lau (18) won an online contest to be a special journalist to follow Gary throughout his filming session in Singapore Polytechnic is also coincidentally a student at Singapore Polytechnic herself!
Gary also tried his hand at perfume making with the students in the Perfumery and Cosmetic Science Centre, the first of such a lab in Singapore. One of the students, Doreen Ting (18) also concocted a personalised scent just for Kang Gary at the lab!
School’s OUT will be premiere on channel M in 10 Asian countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar and Australia on 14 November 2015, 8:30pm SGT. The programme will feature dedicated episodes filmed in Hong Kong and Singapore, the selected cities, for this reality series.
The school’s selection is based on the youths’ support by online submissions at schoolsout.channelm.asia. The winning entry that impressed Gary the most will win a visit by him to their school. Hong Kong and Singapore were announced as the first two cities selected for School’s OUT filming.
