Fresh from his fan meet in a neighbouring country, Gang Dong-Won admits that he is a bit tired but that doesn't hinder him from smiling his mega-watt killer smile at all the media who was present at his Press Conference in Malaysia, ahead of his fan meet later that night. Just arrived in Malaysia, Gang, 37 years old admits that he hasn't seen much of Malaysia on his first trip here "I have just arrived 2 hours ago after interviews in Singapore last night, maybe I'll go and have dinner at restaurants and see Malaysia".

As a model turned actor, Gang has been on TV and big screens but fans haven't been seeing much of the actor on variety shows, he agreed and replied that "When I am at home, I usually watch news and sports, but I do know few variety shows like Running Man and Infinity Challenge.. (pause), probably I would choose to join Infinity Challenge but it's over now". When asked to share unknown facts about him that fans may not have known, Gang nonchalantly answers "I may be quite well know in South Korea, but not in other countries. And if you watched my interviews, I always say the same thing. I'm also sometimes lazy, sometimes hardworking."

Being a man of few words, not much was said for each questions thrown to him. But his sincerity is shown in the way he tries to answer each and every question in English, giving the translator Ellen little work on stage.

At the fan meet with the fans that day, the session was made in a very laid back manner. Fans were given the rare chance to ask questions to Gang, and in return, each fan who managed to get their question heard, received a sign photo by the actor. The night was especially memorable for one fan who had followed the actor's work for 15 years.

So what's next for the model turn actor? Gang is to star in an American movie Tsunami LA, in a role as a surfer in the midst of a Tsunami in LA, helping people he met on the way to safety. We wish you all the best!
