Eric Nam
Eric Nam asks and answers questions about himself

Singer Eric Nam, who is well-known for interviewing numerous international celebrities, became his own interviewer in the clip titled “Eric Nam x Eric Nam” release on Naver’s V Live.

He asked and answered various questions about his life, podcast and upcoming concert tour in Europe.

“There wasn’t a podcast hosted by a Korean singer. So I thought it would be fun to do it,” he said. “In my podcast, I talk about the new releases of the week or introduce singers I like. The show is to let people know about the new music, and less on reviewing them.”

He also talked about his upcoming European tour, where he will be traveling to 11 cities throughout the region, including Lisbon, Madrid, Milan, Prague, Warsaw, Berlin, Cologne, Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam and London.

He is excited to meet fans and do a more intimate concert. He said he will also continue to collaborate with overseas singers, including DJs.

“I can’t rest,” he said. “I enjoy trying new things, making and challenging myself. It gives me joy.”
