Since then, the leading luminary has bagged numerous awards at various television award festivals, starring in films like Ad-lib Night, Masquerade, Always and the latest action thriller, Cold Eyes.
She was in town last Friday, not just to attend the international premiere of Cold Eyes alongside co-stars Jung Woo-Sung and Lee Junho (of popular Korean boy band 2PM), but also as the latest brand ambassador of 1 Day Acuvue Define.
SINGAPORE: Korean actor Jung Woo-sung has played dashing romantic leads in countless Korean films over the course of his career, but plays a villain for the first time in the crime thriller “Cold Eyes”.
Speaking to reporters during a recent visit to Singapore, Jung gushed about his role as James, a classy criminal mastermind that heads a seemingly unstoppable criminal syndicate in the film.
“I really loved the tension that this character James created in the movie.
“I wanted to experience how this character develops over the movie. I really wanted this particular role,” said Jung with smile.
