On May 7th, actor Will Smith attended the perss conference for his movie, 'Men in Black 3', at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Seoul and made the reporters burst out into laughter over his comment on the Wonder Girls.
When asked who he thought was most like an alien, he replied, "I talked about this with my daughter and she thinks the Wonder Girls are like aliens."
Will Smith remarked, "My wife and daughter are very interested in international music. They told me about Wonder Girls, and I am a fan. I'm very simple when it comes to my taste in music, and so I don't know too much about K-Pop."
Wonder Girls members Hyerim & Sunye walked the red carpet and joined Will Smith on the stage at Youngdeungpo Times Square.
When asked why he was holding his world premiere in Korea, the actor replied, "I remember holding a successful promotional event for one of my movies 10 years ago in Korea. While working on this film in the States, there were a lot of talks about promoting in the world market. As Korea is one of the emerging film markets of the world, I felt that Korea would be most fit for our world premiere."
He added, "This is actually my second time in Korea, as I previously visited the country during the World Cup in 2002. I'm here this time with my wife and daughter, and they're both out enjoying Seoul right now. I've slept since arriving last night so I haven't been able to enjoy Seoul yet, but I hope to meet a lot of people and feel it for myself."
