Popular Korean actress promotes Korean TV drama in Japan
Korean actress Choi Ji-woo is visiting Japan to promote her latest TV drama "Air City" that will be broadcast in the country, starting from later this month.

Choi, who arrived in Tokyo Sunday (Oct. 14), held a press conference on Monday (Oct. 15) to talk about the Korean series. The drama will be aired on Japanese satellite TV channel WOWOW from Oct. 26.

The popularity of the actress soared in Japan after she starred in the popular Korean TV dramas "Winter Sonata" and "Stairway to Heaven."

After a four-year hiatus following Stairway to Heaven, Choi made her comeback as the female star of Air City because she "was drawn to play an independent woman who didn't rely on men," in a change from her previous roles in melodramas and love stories, she said.

In the latest drama, Choi plays a career woman who speaks five languages and holds a top post at Incheon International Airport, where she works closely with an intelligence agent played by Korean actor Lee Jung-jae.

Dentsu Inc., a major entertainment firm in Japan, spent 200 million yen to obtain the rights to distribute the drama, which was shot and aired in Korea by the MBC TV network.
