2006/01/25 | Permalink | Source

Top star Bae Yong-joon is featured on the February cover of the Chinese edition of the fashion magazine Cosmopolitan.

An official from Bae's agency BOF said on Jan. 24, "It is the first time, since it was founded in 1998, that the Chinese edition of Cosmopolitan has ever carried a male model on its cover".

The magazine is carrying Bae's cover photograph for its special Valentine's Day issue. It spotlights Bae in a six-page special story entitled "Man We Love" based on an interview with him.

Bae visited Beijing in November of last year to promote the film "April Snow". During the visit, he gave the interview and posed for the magazine's photographs.

According to BOF, the magazine published a story on Bae's image as an actor, while saying he has contributed to increasing South Korea's GDP 0.18 percent and that exports of Bae-related products and films have accounted for 3 billion of the country's total export volume of 21.7 billion dollars last year.
