Right after the awards night, "Walking Street" was screened as the closing film. Sang Woo and Song Lee gave short speeches before the screening but they both left with Mendoza before the end of the film.

Before Sinag Maynila 2017, "Walking Street" had its world premiere at the Singapore International Film Festival 2016, which was attended by "Westworld" star James Marsden and Michelle Yeoh, who is set to star in "Crazy Rich Asians," Hollywood Reporter reported. The story of "Walking Street" revolves around the romance between a prostitute named Yoo Jenna (Song Lee) and a mute man named Park Tae Sung (Baek).

Playing Tae Sung's younger brother named Park Tae Gi was former member K-Pop boy band KINO member Lee Si Gang. Also in the "Walking Street" cast were Yoo Ji Soo and Kahled Elijah Tapia, who co-starred with "Criminal Minds" star Daniel Henney in the 2013 action comedy film "The Spy: Undercover Operation."  

In an interview with Hallyu SG, Baek, Song Lee and Si Gang were asked about their experiences filming overseas. Baek said he enjoyed Thai food as it suited his tastes.

Si Kang said he found it difficult to overcome the language barrier while Song Lee said she found it difficult to deal with the fatigue. The two have never acted in a film before "Walking Street."

On the other hand, Baek has been acting since he was five years old. His first film role was Baek Joon in the 1994 film "I Wish for What is Forbidden to Me" while his first TV series was the 1995 KBS1 show "Blowing of the Wind."

In 2016, Baek played a neurosurgery's third year resident doctor named Pi Young-gook, who is friends with Jin Seo Woo (Lee Sung Kyoung) in "Doctor Crush." The SBS drama series starred Park Shin Hye, Kim Rae Won and Yoon Kyun Sang.
