A+E Networks’ LIFETIME Asia is set to air its brand new six-part, digital-first original production, WHO RUNS THE WORLD WITH MONG CHIN on 23 July 2018. Hosted by popular Singaporean social media influencer, Yeoh Mong Chin, the highly- anticipated series takes her on an epic adventure – six runs in six Southeast Asian countries over eight weeks: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Vietnam. The series marks the latest partnership between A+E Networks’ LIFETIME Asia and Canon.
As part of her adventures across Southeast Asia, Mong Chin explores unique locations that are off-the-beaten-track. While prepping for her runs, she also meets individuals from all walks of life who are united by their love for running, music, food, fashion and more. Mong Chin shared, “Embarking on this project is a first in many ways for me and encompasses all the things that I’ve always loved from travel, food and photography. Being a part of WHO RUNS THE WORLD WITH MONG CHIN has given me the confidence to overcome many challenges and brought me closer to my followers as well. I’m excited to use this opportunity as a new platform to be able to share my experiences by creating unique and authentic content for my followers.”
This is also in line with LIFETIME Asia’s mission to encourage and cultivate women’s talent and advocate for more women in influential content making roles in the media landscape.
Mong Chin travels to six different places including where she originated from, Singapore. She embarks to few places in Kuala Lumpur, Chiang Mai, Hanoi, Lombok and Cebu. One of the toughest obstacles that she had to go through was the Spartan Sprint in Cebu! Definitely, an episode to watch!
Making her debut on the small screen as the star of the series, Mong Chin, also known by her social media moniker ‘Mongabong’, is no stranger to being in the limelight. Having carved out a niche for herself on the Instagram landscape, she’s created a career from her love for fashion, beauty, travel and food.
