Lee Dong Wook and Kim Sun Ah in Kuala Lumpur!
I have to admit that one of the perks of my job as a journalist is that I get to meet celebrities and a whole bunch of interesting folks that I wouldn’t have been able to meet if I wasn’t a journalist. A-list Korean stars Lee Dong Wook and Kim Sun Ah was in Malaysia today to promote their drama “Scent of a Woman”.
No matter how many times I’ve experienced it, it is always surreal to see people that you’ve watched on television suddenly walk by you. A little voice in my head will go, “Hey, aren’t you supposed to be in my television set?”
My first thoughts were: My, are they tall. And then, wow, are they thin.
But the two were the most polite celebrities ever (most Korean stars are quite well-mannered) and answered the questions the host threw at them and even later allowed the press to take photos with them. This is Kim Sun Ah’s first visit to Malaysia, by the way. The two looked tired, however. (The Korean entertainment industry is known for their actors’ punishing schedules.) I just hope that they can at least enjoy some Malaysian scenery and food while they’re here and rest.
