Actor Kim Jeong-hoon Seeks to Captivate Japanese Fans

2006/03/10 | 247 views | Permalink | Source

Actor Kim Jeong-hoon, a former member of the male music group "UN", is expected to captivate the hearts of Japanese fans.

Kim, a former singer, has branched his career into acting, appearing in the popular MBC Wednesday-Thursday miniseries entitled "Palace" (written by In Eun-ah and directed by Hwang In-roe). On the back of his newfound popularity as an actor, he has planned to expand his scope of activities both as a singer and actor in Japan.

An official from Kim's agency said on Mar. 10, "Kim Jeong-hoon will engage in lively activities in Japan. He will concurrently act as a singer and actor. Currently, he will act in a TV drama, as well as record an album, in Japan after 'Palace' comes to an end".

Export contracts for "Palace" ("Princess Hours") have been signed with China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. Negotiations are underway with Japan. If "Palace" ("Princess Hours") begins airing in Asian countries, its actors and actresses, such as Kim, Yoon Eun-hye, Ju Ji-hoon and Song Ji-hyo, will likely make their name as new hallyu stars.
