Actress Choi Jung-won [Well Made Star M]
Korean actress Choi Jung-won seems to be making headway with her career in China, signing with one of China's biggest cosmetics brands and being set to promote Korea's Jeju island.
A press release from Choi's agency Wellmade STARM said today that Choi has recently signed a contract to endorse Carslan through television commercials as well as being appointed a promotional ambassador for Jeju for the next two years for which her posters will adorn subways in Shanghai and other cities in the country.
An official at Well Made Star M added that Choi is also looking into various scripts in preparing for her next project likely to be a Korea-China drama or Chinese film.
Choi had recently opened a Weibo account, the Chinese version of Twitter, which attracted 10,000 followers in the shortest time period for a Hallyu star.
Choi's popularity had soared in China through TV series “Famous Princesses” (KBS, 2006) aired in the mainland in 2009 and most recently through “Wish Upon A Star” (SBS, 2010) which many Chinese watched through Internet downloads.
