Newly-crowned as one of Hallyu’s top four kings, alongside Lee Min Ho, Lee Jong Suk and Kim Soo Hyun, Joo Won plays the role of a medical prodigy, Yong Pal, in The Gang Doctor. His outstanding acting skills captured the hearts of audiences in Korea and all across Asia, and he was propelled to instant stardom. The series has achieved record-high ratings in Korea, and is also the highest-rated prime time drama of 2015 on ONE in Singapore.
Also here in Singapore for the first time is Park Hye Soo, who made her acting debut with the drama. Park, however, is not entirely new to the entertainment scene; she was a contestant in the previous season of the singing-reality competition K-Pop Star 4. At the upcoming fan meeting, she will perform <Even If I Live Just One Day>, one of the original sound tracks that she sang for the series.
Lucky ONE subscribers will have the chance to have a group photo taken onstage with Joo Won as well as receive an exclusive ONE goodie bag. To qualify, fans will need to submit, in no more than 50 words, why they would like to meet Joo Won to www.singteltv.com.sg/ONE for Singtel TV subscribers or www.starhub.com/ONE for StarHub TV subscribers. Besides the grand prize winners, 20 fans will also receive an exclusive ONE goodie bag each for their participation. The participation period of the contest to win a group photo opportunity with Joo Won is from 24th September to 5th October 2015.
