Two Super Junior members to star in Taiwanese drama
Siwon and Donghae from boy band Super Junior will star in the Taiwanese drama “Extravagant Challenge.”
On Dec. 14, Siwon and Donghae touched down in Taiwan for the press conference of the drama “Extravagant Challenge” which will air in Taiwan for the first time on Dec. 18 on FTV. The drama is based on a Japanese manga “Skip Beat” and is a vengeful love story about a woman who sets out to become a celebrity to spite a former lover. The female lead will be played by Taiwanese actress Chen Yi-han.
The press conference was attended by cast members, the press and fans amounting to 1,000 in numbers. Actress Chen said, “I believe Siwon and Donghae’s popularity in Taiwan will help out the drama’s ratings.”
Donghae thanked fans for coming to the conference despite the rain and hoped for the success of the show.
“Through four months of filming, I’ve accumulated so many wonderful memories. I hope you will all like it,” said Siwon.
During the press conference, a video recording featuring congratulatory speeches made by other Super Junior members was also shown.
Of late, Siwon has gathered much attention for being the Korean celebrity with the most Twitter followers. As at Dec. 11, the singer-turned-actor had more than one million fans following him.
