Can A Nigerian Become A Korean Actress

Nigeria born American Actress, Ugonna Njoku is determined to get a role in Korean entertainment industry.

Ugonna Njoku is a Nigerian actress who currently lives in the United States. She grew up and went to school in Nigeria until she finished high school before coming to America for college. Ugonna has been living in Korea for about 8 months now and working very hard to get her career started here.

She says that she is determined to become a Korean actress, but right now she is just trying hard to find an opportunity that can help her achieve this dream.

Ugonna says that she would love it if someone could introduce her to any Korean producers or directors so they can consider giving her some roles either on TV series or movies.

Njoku who has been in Korea for about 8 months now looking for an opportunity said she is sure that Nigerians can make it in the Korean entertainment industry if given the chance.

“I am not surprised that a Nigerian is trying to be an actress because I believe that we have great talent here and if you ask me, I think any one of us can do it. It doesn’t matter where you come from as long as you have passion for acting and entertainment industry, nothing should stop you from succeeding” she said.

She said she was inspired and challenged by the movie, “African King” where an African played a major role.

She said that the character of Chaka in the movie was a very challenging one which she had taken up to challenge herself. She explained that it was not easy playing such role because most of us don’t look at ourselves as capable of doing great things like Chaka did in the movie.

She also added that, “I was watching a Korean movie and I started wondering why there shouldn’t be any Nigerian actor or actress playing the roles of villain, villainess, supporting or major roles?”.

It is possible for a Nigerian to become a Korean actress.

Nigerians are good at acting and there are many of them in Africa, so I think it would be very easy for one of them to get a role as an actor or actress in Korea. They have already started showing interest in the Korean movie industry, but so far no Nigerian has yet appeared on the big screen. I think this can change with time and effort.

Speaking to our correspondent on her struggles so far in the Korean entertainment industry, Njoku said she joined a Taiwanese acrobatic team to keep herself busy but this didn’t last long as the audience kept asking questions about her because she is black.

A 21-year-old Nigerian actress, Jide Njoku, has had a lot of ups and downs in the Korean entertainment industry. Speaking to our correspondent on her struggles so far in the Korean entertainment industry, Njoku said she joined a Taiwanese acrobatic team to keep herself busy but this didn’t last long as the audience kept asking questions about her because she is black.

“I was literally told that I should not be there because my skin colour was too dark for them and that it would bring down their image.”

She added: “I was invited back when they realised how good I was at dancing but by then, I had already decided not to participate anymore because of all these issues.”

Njoku revealed that after leaving the show, she went back home but even though she enjoyed being with family members and friends again, she wasn’t happy; hence returning to South Korea after three months with nothing else planned except becoming an actress again!

“I have had a lot of ups and downs while searching for a role in Korea. I joined an acrobatic show which was travelling all over Asia”.

“I have had a lot of ups and downs while searching for a role in Korea. I joined an acrobatic show which was travelling all over Asia. I would be performing to earn money and at times, it wasn’t much so it was difficult for me.”

She said that she was asked many questions about her life when she came to Korea. She was doing this to gain exposure and opportunity because she didn’t know how else she could get noticed. “As soon as I got into the industry, my roles were reduced from performer to dancing or just doing some moves,” she said.

“I thought working with them would give me an opportunity and exposure so I joined but after some days they suddenly changed my role from a performer to that someone who just dance and do some moves”.

She said she was disappointed because of the sudden change in her role. She has been in Korea for 8 months now and she is determined to make it in the Korean entertainment industry.

“I’m not going anywhere, I will continue until I get what I want,” she said as she describes her goals as a Nigerian who wants to become a Korean actress.
