Only Lee Sung-kyoung could strut on a theater stage, strike a pose and say (not shout) “sweeg” and send fans into overdrive.
Fondly called by her fans as LSK, the Korean model and actor is holding her first ever fan meet in the Philippines tomorrow, July 27, in SM Skydome, Quezon City.
Sung-kyoung won the hearts of K-drama addicts when she starred as barbecue-eating, fried rice-loving, naengmyeon-slurping Kim Bok-joo in “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo.” But not many people know that she could be more “comedic” than the campy college wrestler she portrayed.
Lee Sung-kyoung revealed this during the presser at Dolphy Theater in ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City.
The 28-year-old actor also teased fans and the media when she sang the intro of “From Now On,” by Kim Min-seung, the theme song of “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.” She recently went viral when a video of her singing “A Whole New World” at the top of her lungs was uploaded online. Lea Salonga, who performed the song in the Disney animated film “Aladdin,” reposted the video with the caption “This is so adorable!”
And Sung-kyoung is nothing short of adorable. When asked which role she related to the most, she replied:
“Micha? Bok-joo?” she teased and the fans went wild.
“As Kim Bok-joo, I turned into (her) personality. But since Michaela is the first child, in real life I’m much more alike (her),” said LSK.
She played family breadwinner Michaela Choi in the 2018 fantasy drama “About Time.” She’s also known for her outrageous role as Baek In-ha in “Cheese in the Trap.”
Lee Sung-kyoung will meet more fans tomorrow at “Be Joyful” event, SM Skydome, Quezon City at 6 p.m. Ticket prices are at P8,500, P6,500 and P4,000. Visit smtickets.com.
