  • Um Tae-woong from `Sassy Girl Chung-hyang` Rises as a New Star
  • [2005-01-24]
  • Um Tae-woong, who so far has been trying hard to get rid of his tag as `Um Jeong-hwa`s younger brother,` has finally proved his outstanding acting skills. Since appearing in the KBS TV2 drama series `Sassy Girl Chun-hyang` as handsome protagonist Byun Hak-do, his popularity has been rising by the day.

    Um realized just how popular he has become through his online fan cafes. The number of his fan cafe members has soared from slightly over 4,000 prior to the drama`s premiere to 60,000 a few days after the drama was put on the air, and the number of daily visitors who drop by his fan cafes exceeds 30,000.

    The role of Byun Hak-do is, in a sense, making Um Tae-woong a star. This interesting character, who is cool-headed and thorough at work, changes into an always-smiling, sentimental and restless guy in front of the main character Chun-hyang. Byun is a perfect man who has abilities, good looks and devotion.

    "My dream is to be able to make a living and at the same time be happy and satisfied as an actor," said Um, who, after a long period of staying in the shadows, has finally made his name.
