Uhm Tae-woong Scouted by Five Japanese Talent Agencies

2005/06/22 Source

Actor Uhm Tae-woong may emerge as a next-generation hallyu star, as he has recently been scouted by five Japanese talent agencies. According to Um's agency, representatives of Japanese agencies visited Korea in person and showed great interest in the actor after the first five episodes of the KBS Wednesday-Thursday series "Revenge", in which Um plays twins, aired on national television.

"Representatives from three Japanese talent management agencies have visited us recently, and two other agencies contacted us through their Korean offices. They invited the actor to Japan and presented detailed propositions", said a person from Um's agency.

He also added that the Japanese agencies are apparently trying to scout Um before the two series "Sassy Girl, Chun-hyang" and "Revenge", both starring Eom, air in Japan. Um has shown strong potential to emerge as a next-generation hallyu star by portraying ideal male characters in the two dramas.

Um's role of twin brothers in "Revenge" - one a hot-blooded detective and the other a cool-headed entrepreneur - has earned him an ardent fan base.
