Among the celebrities who took part in the event were top Korean male models such as Min Jun-Gi and Kim Do-jin, super model Lee Hye-jung whose career was culminated when she walked down the runway for a number of luxury brands, announcer Jang Sung-gyu known for his outgoing personality and last but not least, Clara, the Games torch bearer and one of the most talked about actresses in Korea for her beauty and versatility.
In an interview with Tissot, Clara said, ”My father was a member of the legendary group, “Koreana” who sung “Hand in hand” at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. 26 years have passed and the 17th Asian Games takes place here in Korea. For me, it was with great honour to be selected by Tissot as the torch-bearer representing Korea’s show business. This way, I was able to follow the footsteps of my father, which means a lot to me.”
