Hallyu '4Card' Tokyo Show Draws Attention

2009/12/16 Source

Four superstars ― Lee Byung-hun, Jang Dong-gun, Song Seung-heon and Won Bin ― are gathering in Tokyo amid tight security for a special Korean Wave or "hallyu" festival to be held at Tokyo Dome, Thursday.

Jang, Song and Won left for Tokyo, Wednesday, while Lee plans to fly the next morning as he was involved in the filming of the last episode of the KBS megahit drama "IRIS", officials from the event organizer said.

The event, dubbed as "4Card ― Four of a Kind", is drawing extra attention from the media as the promotional fan meeting comes after top stars Lee and Jang made headlines with their former and present girlfriends, respectively.

Lee, the star of "GI Joe" and "IRIS", will make his first public appearance after he has been dragged into a scandal involving a former girlfriend over allegations of sexual misconduct.

The media is also keen whether Jang ("Good Morning President"), who recently confessed to a two year romantic relationship with top actress Ko So-young, would make any comment on their involvement.

The event organizer has been reluctant to disclose the stars' schedules to shield them from the press, with individual media access to the two stars likely to be tightly restricted during their stay.

The event will be directed by renowned Japanese writer-producer Yasushi Akimoto. The four actors will give a theatrical performance set to an audiovisual piece by acclaimed Korean director Hur Jin-ho ("A Good Rain Knows").

The top stars will also introduce fans to their latest films and TV dramas. They originally planned to take part in interview sessions too, but whether they will proceed with them is unclear.

Song garnered local fans with melodramas such as "Autumn in my Heart" and Won is the star of the critically acclaimed thriller "Mother - 2009".

The unconventional promotional event of the top four heartthrobs is expected to draw a total of 70,000 Japanese fans.

이병헌 장동건 송승헌 원빈 같은 무대에

초대형 한류스타 이병헌, 장동건, 송승헌, 원빈이 목요일 도쿄돔에서 열리는 한류 축제에서 함께 무대에 선다.

장동건, 송승헌, 원빈은 수요일 도쿄로 떠난 반면, 이병헌은 `아이리스' 마지막 회 촬영 때문에 목요일 아침 출발할 예정이다.

이번 행사는 이병헌과 장동건이 각각 연인과의 스캔들로 유명세를 치렀기 때문에 특히나 관심을 끌고 있다.

특히 이병헌은 전 여친과의 스캔들이 불거진 이후 처음으로 공식적인 자리에 모습을 드러낸다.

최근 여배우 고소영과의 연인 관계를 고백한 장동건이 이에 대해 어떠한 언급을 할지도 관심거리다.

주최측은 이들의 스케줄을 비공개로 하고 있는데, 개별적인 미디어 접촉도 어려울 전망이다.

이 행사의 총감독은 일본의 저명한 작가 겸 제작자 아키모토 야수시이다. 이들 4명의 배우는 한국 허진호 감독의 작품에 맞춰 연기를 선보이고, 자신들의 최신 영화 및 드라마도 팬들에게 소개할 예정이다.

당초에는 인터뷰도 잡혀 있었는데, 실제로 진행될지는 확실치 않다.

이번 행사에는 7만여명의 일본팬들이 참석할 것으로 기대된다.
