Korean actor Jang Hyeok [Sidus HQ]

Korean actor Jang Hyeok will be leaving for Japan today to promote his hit TV series "The Slave Hunters", which is currently airing in the country.

Sidus HQ announced in a press release Thursday that the actor will be carrying out various promotional activities during his five-day visit including a press conference, interviews with local media and two fan meetings.

The fan meetings, titled "Jang Hyeok with LOVE", will be held at Tokyo's ZEPP music hall tomorrow and at Osaka's Universal Studios Japan on Sunday.

"The local interest in Jang Hyeok is higher than ever", said a source related to the Japan promotion event. "We expect that this promotion will allow Jang to have an intimate, meaningful time with his fans".

Jang will be talking to Japanese fans about the drama as well as performing two songs and demonstrating Jeet Kune Do, a martial arts system created by legendary action star Bruce Lee.

"Hunters", about a slave hunter named Dae-gil (played by Jang), became one of the most-watched shows in Korea during its run earlier this year and has been airing on Japan's cable channel SO-NET since April 20.

Jang, who made his acting debut in 1996 thru SBS TV series "Model", has appeared in many films and television dramas including "School" (KBS, 1999), "The Successful Story Of A Bright Girl" (SBS, 2002) and "Tazza" (SBS, 2008), a small screen adaptation of the 2006 Korean film.

He is set to star in the Chinese remake of hit Korean drama "All About Eve", to premiere in China in September.
