Hwang In Youp To Hold Fan Meeting In Manila On June 19

Get ready for the ‘True Beauty’ star’s first event in the Philippines!

Mark your calendars as South Korean actor Hwang In Youp is visiting Manila on June 19, 2022. He’s set to meet his Filipino fans at the New Frontier Theater.

Cool character

After finishing The Sound of Magic, Hwang In Youp is set to appear in the mystery romance drama Why Her. He’ll play Gong Chan, a law student who’ll do anything to protect Oh Soo Jae, played by actress Seo Hyun Jin.

“When I first came across the drama, the title was fresh and intense, so I couldn’t forget it. When I read the script, the story of Gong Chan and Oh Soo Jae struck me as sad yet beautiful. I made a lot of effort to understand my character Gong Chan. I tried to experience his feelings by reading the script over and over again. I’ll show you another side of me in this drama,” Hwang In Youp says.

When asked to describe his character, here’s what he had to say: “He becomes hurt after an incident in the past. Even so, he doesn’t have negative or rebellious thoughts. Gong Chan is confident and cool, and he always tries to live in a positive and right way.”

Hwang In Youp loves the Philippines

In September 2021, Hwang In Youp became a BYS Philippines endorser. He was the face of #UncoverTrueBeauty, a campaign that coincided with the Skin by BYS Minis launch. Now, Filipino fans will finally get to see him in the flesh!

This isn’t his first time in the Philippines, though. He lived in Davao City when he was younger. Back then, he went by his English name Ryan Leon. He studied high school at the Philippine Nikkei Jin Kai International School. He went on to graduate from the Philippine Women’s College with a degree in fashion design.
