TV drama starring Kwon Sang-woo big hit in Japan

Top hallyu actor Kwon Sang-woo has drawn contrasting responses in Korea and abroad recently for his role in a new TV drama after a two-year hiatus.

Korean drama Bad Love

The drama, entitled Bad Love, recorded domestic viewer ratings of just 6.1 percent on Dec 3, when its pilot episode aired.

But its exports to Japan and Taiwan have been anything but sluggish, posting export revenues of three billion won in Japan alone. In fact, Bad Love and the epic drama The Four Guardian Gods of the King, starring actor Bae Yong-jun have been paving the way for a revival of the hallyu boom.

A person from the production crew of Bad Love said Asian fans have been looking forward to Kwon’s acting after his long hiatus and that some 100 foreign fans visit the drama’s filming sites every day.
