SINGAPORE - Korean actor Kang Ha Neul will be coming to Singapore at the end of August to promote his new drama, the Korean remake of the popular Chinese series Scarlet Heart (2011).
The 26-year-old heart-throb plays the dashing 8th Prince Wang Wook in the Korean version, which will premiere in Singapore on Aug 29 at 9pm, on Sony's Korean entertainment Channel One. It will be aired in Singapore simultaneously as in South Korea and China.
The meet-and-greet here is open to the public and will take place in the evening of Aug 27 at shopping mall Waterway Point. The time of the event will be confirmed at a later date.
Kang will be signing autographs, taking group photographs and playing games with fans onstage.
Last year, Kang met fans here to promote his coming-of-age movie Twenty (2015) at the Korea Film Festival (KFF) 2015. His turn as shy college freshman in the movie won him the Best New Actor award at the Korean Film Actors' Guild Awards.
He has also starred as an over-achieving student body president in teenage romance The Inheritors (2013) and a geeky intern in office drama Misaeng (2014).
Scarlet Heart premieres on Aug 29 at 9pm on channel ONE (StarHub TV Channel 124, 820 and 823; Singtel TV Ch 513 and 604). It airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9pm.
