Unknown here but Singaporean actress making waves in China and Korea

27 August 2013 / 3 years 2 months ago

After playing the lead role in more than 20 dramas serials over 12 years, you would think that Veronica Foo is a household name in Singapore but that, however, is not the case.

For the shows that the 30-year-old had starred in were not local productions but rather, dramas made in China and Korea.

In an interview with Shinmin Daily, Foo said that she made a bold decision to establish herself in China at the tender age of 18 upon completion of her diploma at Nanyang Polytechnic.

She rose to fame after she landed a role alongside Vicki Zhao and Nicholas Tse in the Chinese drama Jade Goddess of Mercy (玉观音).

And she's not looking back. Her performance in that show has unlocked doors for her, giving her opportunities to take on challenging projects such as a Chinese-Korean production that saw her star alongside Korean actor Shim Ji Ho.

That, in turn, also led to a starring role in a few Korean music video.

While a return to Singapore isn't on the cards for now, Foo certainly seems to have the quality to do well here considering her success in wherever she has been.
