Though he’s still a rookie in the acting industry with MBC’s ‘Shiny Shiny Shining’ as his debut drama, Kang Dong Ho(27) is already an established popular star in the musical industry.
The musical ‘Goong’, in which he was triple casted alongside TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho and Run, is a meaningful production for Kang Dong Ho. The horde of Japanese reporters who came to see U-Know Yunho paid attention to Kang Dong Ho as well. Through them, Kang Dong Ho became known in Japan and he was chosen as the ‘most highly anticipated Hallyu Star of 2011′ by the famous Japanese magazine ‘Fandom Asia’.
“While performing in ‘Goong’, people who came to see U-Know Yunho started liking me and becoming my fans. If more fans start asking for me, then I’ll have no choice but to fly to Japan.”(laughter)
Through ‘Goong’, Kang Dong Ho became good friends with U-Know Yunho. As soon as he was asked what kind of friend U-Know Yunho is, Kang Dong Ho began flooding us with praise.
“Usually, when double casting occurs in a musical or play, it’s not easy for tension to not exist between actors. So it’s hard to see actors stepping up to help each other out. But U-Know Yunho was different. He always helped others display their best features 150%. I’ve never met a friend as great as him.”
“Appearing in ‘Goong’ together, I found that U-Know Yunho is a friend I have a lot to learn from. He’s a great man. At times, he’s carefree and innocent, but he’s really mature when it comes to treating others with respect. Seeing U-Know Yunho like that moved me and he has many aspects that I admire.“Source: [TV Daily] Translated & Shared by: dongbangdata.net
