  • filipino-startAn award-winning Filipino filmmaker-actor is currently making waves in South Korea. Taguig City-born Nash Ang clinched a role in an episode of the crime procedural drama “Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheoyong” as Ikbal, an illegal immigrant employee suspected of killing his co‑worker. Apart from “Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo-yong,” Ang will also appear in the upcoming Jang Dong­gun-starrer “Crying Man.”

    He is also part of Salad Multicultur­al Theater Group’s stage play “Suklay (Comb).” Asked how he got his start, Ang told Bulletin Entertainment, “Nage-ekstra lang ako dati sa mga drama at pelikula dito be­fore. Pero ngayon, ito na yata ‘yung pina­ka-malaki kong break na nagkaroon ako ng supporting character.” The actor boasts of his being hardwork­ing as among qualities that endeared him to Korean film productions.

    “Marka na talaga ng mga Pinoys na ma­sipag at focus sa ginagawa hindi katulad ng ibang lahi. Kaya gusto rin nila katra­baho ang mga Pinoy kasi alam nilang ma­sinop tayo sa ginagawa natin,” he said.

    “Siguro rin kasi may itsura ako kaya naka-cast ako. Tapos siguro ‘yung ability ko to speak Ko­rean, kahit barok-barok, is a big advantage kaya nape-prefer ako,” added Ang, who, incidentally, was the 2012 Mister Phil­ippines in Korea.

    Ang has also megged the Tacloban-inspired documentary “Paraiso,” which he’s planning to showcase in different film fests. He also wrote a Filipino-related drama, which he hopes to shoot this Summer in Seoul.

    Prior, Ang earned an Ani Ng Dangal Award from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) as a salute to his efforts to propagate Filipino artistry abroad.

    Ang’s films have reaped big prizes at different festivals in New York, Thailand, South and North Korea, among others. These recognitions allowed him a scholar­ship grant from the Korea National Univer­sity of Arts, where he’s earning a Masters Degree in Film. He credited his alma mater Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) and the university-based theater group Tangha­lang Hulyo Beinte Tres, Ink for his skills.(M. Delizo,mb.com)
