The 2nd annual Tencent App Star Awards were held on 17 January 2016 at the Workers’ Stadium in Beijing, China. Ji Chang Wook was invited to the ceremony and in addition to presenting an award, received one himself for “Most Popular Korean Artist of the Year.” He also performed live “Pei Ni” (“Be With You”) from his recent EP release.
The Tencent App Star Awards is one of the more prestigious events in the mobile network industry, described as an “Internet Oscars” type of ceremony (quite like the International Webby Awards). Over 80 mobile applications were nominated from various Chinese shopping, tourism and travel, financial, health and well-being, news, sports, and gaming websites. 100 judges were selected and involved in the voting for awards in these professional categories.
And we’re not exactly sure why Ji Chang Wook shared the stage with a very large robot, but he did.
