Singer and actor Jung Yonghwa will make a special appearance in a Chinese sitcom, the first among Korean celebrities.
Jung Yonghwa will appear as a popular Chinese celebrity’s friend in the Chinese sitcom “Diors Man.” “Diors Man” production stated, “Jung Yonghwa is a representative hallyu artist who has a very good understanding of Chinese culture. We offered him the role for his efforts and the hot demands by Chinese fans.”
At the proactive request by “Diors Man,” Jung Yonghwa accepted the offer right away. He recently finished filming at a hotel in Beijing, where he not only showed his dandy self but didn’t mind appearing disheveled like a professional, winning high praises on the set.

For instance, the eight episodes of season 3 have totaled 1 billion views, enjoying great popularity locally. The 4th season begins mid next month; Jung Yonghwa’s date of appearance is yet to be determined.
Recently, Jung Yonghwa has proven his explosive popularity in China by winning two awards at the 15th Yinyue Fengyunbang awards: “Overseas Singer” as a solo artist, chosen by industry associate, and “Overseas Popular Artist” as the representative of CNBLUE.
