Kim Hyun-joong has been voted this year’s most popular foreign artist at the Miguhui Awards, which charts singers according to mobile phone music downloads in China.
According to Keyeast Entertainment on Sunday, Kim collected his prize in person at the awards ceremony on Saturday that took place in Chengdu.
He performed two songs: “Break Down” and “Please.”
“It’s such an honor to finish up the year with such an accolade,” said Kim before going on to thank the Chinese fans for their love and support.
