Jealousy filled a Singapore actress’ page after she posted snuggly photos with a famed South Korean actress.
Bridget Fernandez and Kim Go-eun were all in smiles and hugs in photos taken during a shoot in The Fullerton Hotel Singapore for Netflix’s Korean mystery drama Little Women, which aired plenty of picturesque shots of local landmarks recently.
Fernandez, who played a hotel staff, praised the 31-year-old actress for her thoughtfulness during the filming of Fernandez’s first K-drama. Kim plays Oh In-ju, the main lead and eldest of three sisters.
“I have been lucky in my career to have had acting partners who are warm & considerate. I have a fond memory of @ggonekim making sure I sit & take my heels off at every scene break. I didn’t need to of course but that she kept insisting was very sweet,” the Tanglin actress wrote yesterday.
The drama, which is loosely based on the Louisa May Alcott novel of the same name, centers around three sisters from an underprivileged background who got thrown into a case that involves 70 billion won (S$72.5 million) going missing, and the face-off against Korea’s richest family.
The latest eighth episode, which aired on Sunday, showed Kim and co-star Wi Ha-joon, who plays the mysterious Choi Do-il, running around scenic Singapore. The scenes are filled with dreamy wide shots of landmarks including the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, Boat Quay and even the MacPherson MRT station.
Many orchids were featured in orchid-loving Singapore since they play a special role in the drama. Also, there were several blatant product placements and mini tourism adverts sneaked in to promote the Fullerton Hotel and Kopiko, among others.
Other local actors such as veteran actor Adrian Pang and Joshua Tan from Ah Boys To Men cameoed in the drama playing the hotel manager and a hotel receptionist respectively.

Singaporeans went crazy after Kim and Wi were first spotted filming in several locations around Singapore in July until drama producers had to order those who posted photos of them filming to take them down to avoid spoilers.
But now that the plot has seeped into Singapore, it seems like there will be more shots of the city, and maybe more local actors, starring in the remaining four episodes as the latest left viewers on a cliffhanger.
Even Kim teased.
