The trio’s schedule was crammed full, and featured a Naver V live stream, a red carpet event at the Lotte World Tower and a press conference at CGV Yongsan. Despite, this, they made time for a Kakao TV livestream on Wednesday afternoon.
Firth’s trip to Korea has clearly impressed him, as he spoke fondly of Seoul, Korean hospitality and Korean food – especially kimchi and Korean styled breakfast. The live stream presenter was the comedian Kim Young-chul (Infinite Challenge, Knowing Bros), who spoke with the actors in English. Kim has already met Egerton last year, as he visited Korea when promoting “Eddie The Eagle”, a sports comedy-drama. It was also Strong’s first time in Korea, and he was also incredibly impressed, reporting that “so far I’m absolutely loving it.”
Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Taron Egerton are set to arrive in Korea on 20th September 2017, the day their new film Kingsman: The Golden Circle is released in the UK. The announcement from 20th Century Fox Korea comes with the news that Korea will be the only Asian country that the trio will visit during their global promotional tour.
Firth is famous for his roles in “Love Actually” (2003), “The King’s Speech” (2010) and, as British readers may be aware, the BBC serialized version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (1995). This will be his first visit to Korea. Both Egerton and Strong featured in Kingsman: The Secret Service, the 2014 prequel to The Golden Circle.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) and featuring an A-list cast including Halle Berry, Elton John and Channing Tatum, it revolves around the union of the Kingsman spy agency and a US spy organisation called Statesmen in order to fight a particularly tough enemy.
Watch the trailer below before the film hits the cinemas on 20th September in the UK, and 22nd September in the USA!
