Yeo Jin Goo and Shim Eun Kyung were in town last weekend for the tvN Movie Awards Ceremony and the launch of tvN movies after being voted as the most popular male actor and female actress respectively.
tvN movies is CJ E&M’s latest venture into the Singapore entertainment scene and their timely launch coincides with the screening period of two tvN movies, The Age of Shadows and MASTER.
Yeo Jin Goo gained popularity through his appearances in popular dramas like Moon Embraces The Sun where he played young Lee Hwon (starring Kim Soo Hyun) and Orange Marmalade. Shim Eun Kyung is more widely known for her versatile acting skills through the movie, Miss Granny, where she had to portray herself as an old lady whose looks went back in time.
Jin Goo who graced the grand finale at Suntec City Atrium expressed that “Korean movies have a wide variety of genres” and “there’s always something to look forward to”, further raising expectations for fans in the crowd.
“I believe there’s something special in Korean movies and that makes it so unique”, said Eun Kyung,
Movie talk aside, Jin Goo brought up how he came to Singapore 7 years ago and stayed for almost 2 months to film a movie. His fond memories made him want to return and he is glad that he is back.
When the MC asked what their favourite food was, both stars chimed in unison without hesitation, “we’re having chili crab for dinner!”
tvN Movies is available on StarHub TV Channel 818 and 819, and via online streaming service StarHub Go. Don’t forget to catch them on the channel!
