Heartthrobs Lee Byung-hun, Jang Dong-gun, Song Seung-heon and Won Bin will take part in a special "hallyu" (Korean Wave) festival in Tokyo in December, Yonhap News reported Monday.

The event, to take place Dec. 17 at Tokyo Dome, 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 Heo Jin-ho ("Season of Good Rain").

The four 30-something stars, who are known to be good friends, are said to have initiated the project, wanting to do "something fun and unprecedented".

Lee ("I Come With the Rain"), who became popular in Asian countries through TV soaps such as "All In", said he was was "happy to meet fans through a special production before the end of the year".

Jang ("Good Morning President"), who rose to stardom through appearances in dramas like "All About Eve", and Song, who garnered local fans in melodramas such as "Autumn in my Heart", said they were looking forward to meeting Japanese fans after a long hiatus.

Won, whose critically acclaimed thriller "Mother - 2009" recently opened in Japanese theaters, also expressed enthusiasm for the unconventional project.

The top stars will also introduce fans to their latest films and TV dramas and take part in an interview session.
