Top star Jang Dong-gun will say hello to his fans onstage at ten theaters in Seoul.

The lead actor of the fantasy film The Promise, directed by Chen Kaige and released on Jan. 26, Jang will greet his fans onstage at a total of ten theaters in Seoul on Jan. 28, the first day of the lunar New Year's holidays.

He will visit most of the major theaters in Seoul, namely Gangbyon CGV, Megabox, Piccadilly, Daehan Cinema, Lotte Avenue L, Seoul Cinema, Fantaseum, CineCity, Cinus Central, and MMC.

Jang is taking the time to visit the theaters in Korea despite his busy schedule promoting The Promise in Japan.

"We cautiously suggested that Jang Dong-gun say hello to his fans onstage in the country despite his tight schedule in Japan. But he gladly accepted our suggestion". said an official from a film agency on Jan. 27.
