Top star Kwon Sang Woo is to visit the Cannes International Film Festival on Jackie Chan’s private jet.
According to Kwon’s agency Bel Actors Entertainment on May 14, Kwon will leave Beijing, China on May 17 with Jackie Chan to participate in the 65th Cannes Festival.
The reason of his appearance is to promote the movie he starred with Chan, 12 Chinese Zodiac Heads.
The star has never shown up at the Cannes festival before.
By offering his private jet to accompany him to the film festival, Jackie Chan has shown a great favor towards him.
While shooting the movie, Kwon was so immersed in his work that he had pushed himself to continue shooting despite his knee injury.
Eventually, he ended up getting a stem cell surgery. On seeing this, Chan postponed the shooting schedule until Kwon recovered, saying that he also had several near-death experiences while shooting.
Again, he had shown a great favor to the Korean celebrity.
During the festival, Kwon is to be involved in other promotions organized by foreign press, China’s Huayi Brothers, and so on.
Thanks to Jackie Chan, an influential figure in China, it seems that Kwon will gain higher level of awareness throughout the country.
From the 6th to the 10th of May, Kwon promoted the film Shadows of Love in which he starred with Cecilia Cheung in China.
The movie caught attention as it opened simultaneously on 4,000 screens throughout the country.
