Kristel Fulgar, an actress and singer, has signed with a South Korean entertainment agency.
Fulgar stated in her most recent vlog that she recently signed with Fivestones Entertainment in order to obtain a working visa in South Korea.
“Kasi kapag kumuha ako ng student visa, they will require me two sems, six months ‘yun na mag-aaral ako. Ayaw ko na mag-aral ng six months,” she said.
“And then Big Boss is friends with CEO Han and he asked for a favor. Since they are friends and they do business together, they said they would provide me with an E6 visa which is a working visa here in Korea,” she added.
However, the former child star informed her subscribers that she was not yet ready to enter the Korean entertainment industry.
“He said why not try din daw showbiz here? I am not prepared for that guys, so huwag muna kayo mag-expect na mag-aartista ako dito. Kasi hindi pa ako ganun ka-confident mag-Korean honestly. Later na, let’s see kung anong matutunan ko sa school. Baka magkaroon ako ng confidence and ita-try ko na ‘yung [showbiz],” she said.
While she is open to the idea, Fulgar admits that just thinking about it makes her extremely nervous.
“Showbiz in the Philippines is so tough na. How much more here? I am not expecting anything here. I just want to enjoy. When I start to think about it, I feel pressured na. But let’s see anong mangyayari sa life ko dito sa Korea.”
For the time being, she would prefer to concentrate on learning the Korean language.
