Recently, the Korean star Jung Il Woo has started his activities, to say, his projects in China, and according to a report on All K Pop, he has signed an “exclusive” contract with YUEHUA Entertainment, who will be handling his activities, and all the promotional material for his activities within China.
For their part, it seems that YUEHUA Entertainment is delighted to have Jung Il Woo on their roster, as the star is pretty popular in China as of late.
Just a day or two, after signing a contract with YUEHUA Entertainment, it was announced that the star will be doing his first ever Chinese drama, which will be aired on Hunan TV.
According to the report on All K Pop, the drama will be entitled “Beautiful Woman,” where he will portray a food critic and Korean food blogger named Kim Moon Ho.
