KOREAN HEARTTHROB KIM Bum recently arrived in the country to shoot an RC Cola softdrink commercial with young actress Maja Salvador. He is famous for his role as So Yi-Jeong of F4 in the top-rating Koreanovela Boys Over Flowers which was aired on ABS-CBN.
Kim Bum makes every girl’s heart flutter with his killer smile and deadly charm. Kaya hindi naging hadlang sa ilang die-hard fans ni Kim Bum ang epekto ng bagyong Ondoy upang hindi nila salubungin ang iniidolong aktor sa airport na ngayon lang nakapunta sa Pilipinas.
Nagpasalamat siya sa mainit na pagtanggap ng mga fans kahit na umuulan nang dumating siya sa bansa. Ipinaabot din niya ang kanyang message sa mga Pinoy through an interpreter. “I feel very sorry for the people. More strength of heart to those people. I believe you can get over it.”
Kim Bum has followed the footsteps of fellow Korean F4 members Lee Min-ho (Goo Jun Pyo) and Kim Hyun-joong (Yoon Ji Hoo) who endorse Pepsi and Coca-Cola’s Dynamic Kin, respectively.
He recently starred in the drama series Dream where he played a K-1 athlete who was released from a reformatory facility. Maliban sa Boys Over Flowers, Kim Bum has a string of dramas tucked under his belt like Unstoppable High Kick, Rainbow Romance, Rude Woman and East of Eden.
At napag-uusapan na rin lang ang Korean craze sa bansa ay hindi puwedeng makalimutan na tanungin kay Kim Bum si Sandara Park who is now popular in Korea as Dara of the girl group 2NE1. Sinabi ni Kim Bum na kung sakaling magkita raw sila ni Dara ay tatanungin niya ito tungkol sa Pilipinas para mas marami pa siyang matutunan about our country.
Kailan naman kaya darating sa bansa sina Lee Min-ho, Kim Hyun-joong at Kim Joon? Abangan na lang natin.
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
