South Korean actor Park Bo Gum, the star of hot TV series Love In The Moonlight, is coming to Kuala Lumpur for a promotional stint.
According to a recent statement by his management agency Blossom Entertainment, Park is set to embark on his fan-meeting tour across Asia and he’s kicking it off in KL on Dec 10. He then will go on to cities including Hong Kong, Jakarta in Indonesia, Taipei in Taiwan, Tokyo in Japan, Bangkok in Thailand and Singapore. Park will also go to China, with several cities likely to be on the list.
Details of his tour, which is set to end just before the year ends in Seoul, South Korea, will be announced soon by Blossom Entertainment via its official website and social media pages. “The upcoming fan meetings will be a special occasion for Park Bo-gum to hold proper meetings with his fans not only at home but also across Asia,” the agency said to entertainment news website Inquisitr. “They will be made up of various programmes through which Park and his fans can talk and enjoy themselves.”
Park, who played Crown Prince Lee Yeong in the recently-concluded Love In The Moonlight (also known as Moonlight Drawn By Clouds), is fast becoming one of the most sought-after South Korean actors. The 23-year-old Hallyu star is apparently getting requests from countless companies who wish to use him in their commercials and promotional campaigns.
“He’s firmly established himself as a lead actor through this drama. We’re getting more than three times as many requests as before for his appearance in dramas,” said Seung Byeong-wook, a senior official at Blossom Entertainment, as reported by Yonhap.
In separate reports, Park’s Love In The Moonlight co-star Kwang Dong-yeon has nothing but praise for the star, even though it took a while for the duo to become close. Kwang revealed to Soompi that when Park is angry about something, he uses the word jjamppong (a kind of spicy noodle soup) instead of cursing to express how he feels.
While appearing on the KBS2 talk show Happy Together, Kwang half jokinngly said that one of Park is almost perfect and that one of his biggest flaws is that he “drops some rice while eating”.
