Song Hye-kyo, Cha Tae-hyun Promote "My Girl and I" in Hong Kong

2006/02/28 | 239 views | Permalink | Source

Hallyu film stars Song Hye-kyo and Cha Tae-hyun have had a pleasant time in Hong Kong, where they are currently staying to promote their film "My Girl and I".

Hundreds of Hong Kong fans flocked to a preview of "My Girl and I" held on Feb. 26. When Song and Cha showed up onstage, their fans welcomed them with thunderous applause and cheers. Moreover, the preview virtually became a birthday party for Song when her fans sang "Happy Birthday to You!" in English, as Feb. 26 was her birthday.

At the event, Song and Cha held a question-and-answer session with their fans. Given that the theme of "My Girl and I" is "first love", the fans asked them about their own first love. Cha received a loud ovation from his Hong Kong fans when he said with smile, "I will marry my first sweetheart a few months later". But Song said, "Although my real first love did not last, I found it again by working in this film". To the question "Who did you work in greater harmony with, singer Rain or Cha Tae-hyun?" Song replied, "I found Rain to be just like a good friend. But I found Cha just like an older brother".

Song and Cha grew embarrassed for a moment when a Hong Kong fan asked Cha to "kiss Song as her birthday gift". But Cha declined, saying, "I can't do that, because I am already engaged to another woman".

The box-office performance of "My Girl and I" has fallen short of people's expectations in Korea. But the film is expected to re-ignite the hallyu boom in Hong Kong on Mar. 9, when it is officially released there.
