Charice 'appalled and angry' over 'Star King' airing

Last April 7, Charice appeared on Korean TV talent show "Star King" for the fourth time, since her popular guesting on the show back in 2007.

But what supposedly was a good reunion with the show's staff turned into a bad one, as Charice said she was "appalled and angry" when "Star King" aired her segment on the show. The international pop star taped last March 20, a day before her Seoul concert for her Infinity album tour.

Charice's personal assistant and road manager Courtney Blooding said the show's airing of Charice's segment was "inappropriate." She said the "Star King" taping and performance were done without approval.

Charice meanwhile was mum on telling what happened during the show's taping.

"I'm afraid I can't. But it was very bad,", Charice tweeted.

The show aired Charice's performances of Whitney Houston's "Saving All My Love for You" and "Before It Explodes" off her new album. Charice also performed Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You" with Korean singer K. Will.

The segment also showed clips of her first appearance on the show, as well as her appearances on "Oprah" and Celine Dion's concert.

But the show also showed photos of her father's funeral. Her father, Ricky Pempengco, was stabbed to death in their hometown last October 2011.

Blooding posted that "Star King" was disrespectful and rude, and that the content was "inappropriate."

"Star King" has not issued a statement yet on the matter.
