MBC’s series Coffee Prince and Goong are drawing a lot of attention from their Latin America premeir. As a result, actress Yoon Eun Hye has become popular as well.
According to MBC, the series Goong started airing on SERTV in Panama on July 30. The series Coffee Prince will start airing in Paraguay on September 15 and Goong will also air in January next year.
MBC acquired thirteen Korean TV series, including the historical series Daejanggum and Damo, and the modern series Queen of Housewife, My Name is Kim Sam Soon, and The Greatest Love so far. The most popular TV series is Daejanggum, in which actress Lee Young Ae appeared.
Yeo Seung Chul from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to Panama said that the series Goong is receiving considerable attention from the local public.
The series airs on prime time from 8 to 9 at night. The series My Name is Kim Sam Soon is a big hit series in Panama and the second popular series is Boys over Flowers. People are wondering if Goong can beat those series.
The series Coffee Prince will start airing in Paraguay every Saturday starting September 15 and Goong will air early next year from Monday through Friday.
Jung Gil Hwa, president of MBC in Latin America, says, “Thanks to the K-pop boom, Korean TV series is also receiving a lot of attention. Since the series Goong has a familiar story line to Latin American history, it will appeal to the public. Coffee Prince will also draw considerable attention because the area produces lots of coffee. Actress Yoon Eun Hye will also show off her power in those series.”
