Actor Jeong Il-woo will be the main attraction at this year's fourth annual Japan-Korea Friendship Festival on April 8, headed by the nonprofit corporate body Japan-Korea Cultural Exchange Association.
The star from the hit MBC drama "The Sun and the Moon" is currently decorating the organization's Web site, which is promoting the event ahead of the date.
Other entertainers to attend the festival will be the groups Monday Kiz and the Japanese string orchestra Baradan. The two will perform theme songs from Hallyu dramas together.
The Japan-Korea Cultural Exchange Association was founded in 2008, and its event takes place every April. The theme for each year has always been based on Hallyu period dramas, and previous guests have included actors Choi Soo-jong and Song Il-kook.
Meanwhile, Jeong was in Japan earlier this year on Feb. 3 to promote the drama "49 Days". Jeong starred in the drama last year and attended a fan meeting for the show alongside co-stars Jo Hyeon-jae and Nam Gyoo-ri.
