  • JANG Hyuk enters the world stage impressively


    Korean star JANG Hyuk’s English language debut film Dance of the Dragon’s premiere is imminent. Building up to the release of the big budget film, its director John Radel compared JANG to James Dean.


    Radel also praised the versatility JANG displayed, including martial arts and dance skills while maintaining a high level of acting during his first English language role. Radel predicted a bright international career for JANG after people all over the world will see him in Dance of the Dragon.


    Dance of the Dragon is a co-production between South Korea, Singapore and the U.S., starring JANG, Fann Wong (Singapore), and Jason Scott Lee (U.S.). JANG and Lee’s characters are rivals for the love of Fann. The love story mixes ballroom dancing with action.


    The world premiere party will take place on May 1 in Singapore. JANG arrived in Singapore prior to the premiere for promotional activities and interviews.


    JANG already entered international markets through the success of his Korean films. He starred in the comedy hits Volcano High (Hwasango), Windstruck (Nae Yojachingooreul Sogaehamnida), and Please Teach Me English.
