Actor Lee Gwang-soo is quite the Mr. Popular in Asia.

SBS TV program "Running Man" was recorded in Macao and Vietnam for two weeks episodes. Lee Gwang-soo was the most popular in these countries.

Vietnamese fans crowded to see him and were frantic about his every move and carried around cards and posters written, "Lee Gwang-soo is the best", "Lee Gwang-soo Oppa" and more written in Korean.

His popularity is thanks to his character first of all. He started off as 'plot Lee Gwang-soo' but his weak image in front of Kim Jong-gook and image of betrayal when it comes to teaming up with other weak characters made him the icon of 'betrayal'.

His character is a risky one since it could cast a counter affect on him but he knows how to control himself to appeal to the audience and not be criticized by them.

Lee Gwang-soo is shy in front of the fans who crave him and yell for him but also suddenly changes attitude and dances or sings in front of the many fans.

Netizens say, "Lee Gwang-soo is the Prince of Asia", "He's so popular and good for him", "I was shocked at the attention he got", "He's so nice" and more.

Meanwhile, Lee Gwang-soo is taking a break since "My Little Hero" early this year and is waiting for his next project.
