Actress Hong Soo Ah will be performing as the honorary eighth member of girl group CHI CHI once again! The labelmates will be performing for the 2011 opening game between the Doosan Bears and LG Twins.
A representative of Doosan commented, “Hong Soo Ah is the Doosan Bears’ honorary starting pitcher, and has helped publicize professional baseball more than anyone else. While planning special events for our fans in celebration of our 30th anniversary, we decided that it’d be fun to bring in Hong Soo Ah and rookie girl group, CHI CHI.”
The actress stated, “This year, the interest and popularity of professional baseball continues to rise. It’s an honor to be able to initiate such a fun and long-awaited festival with baseball fans. I’ll be rehearsing a lot to make sure that it’s the best stage possible, so please look forward to it.”
CHI CHI added, “All seven of us are hardcore baseball fans. Although we’re nervous (especially since this will be the biggest stage for us) we hope that we’ll become a sweet source of energy for the baseball fans in the stadium.”
The girl group and their special guest member will be performing “Don’t Play Around” on April 2nd.
