Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang
Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang will be making an appearance in several episodes in upcoming KBS TV series "The Fugitive Plan B", according to a press release by the show's producer on Wednesday.
Tsang is said to have constantly shown keen interest in appearing in the show, particularly for its shoots which would take place in various locations throughout the world including in Tokyo, Osaka, Shanghai, Beijing, Macau and Hong Kong.
A producer from the show added that the popularity of Korean dramas and stars in the Asian market may have also been a decisive factor.
The drama, about a hefty sum of money popping up sixty years after it disappeared in times of the Korean War, will be helmed by noted television producer Kwak Jeong-hwan and written by Cheon Seong-il, the duo behind the hit TV series "The Slave Hunters".
Eric Tsang began his career in the entertainment business as a stuntman. He is a prolific actor, director producer and television host for variety program "Super Trio Series" on Hong Kong's TVB.
He then appeared in many Hong Kong films such as "It Takes Two (1982)", "Winner & Sinners (1983)", "The Dragon Family (1988)" and "Kung Fu Dunk (2008)". Most recently, he directed and starred in film "72 Tenants of Prosperity (2010)".
"The Fugitive Plan B" will premiere in Korea around late September.
