Korean actors Jang Keun-suk and Park Shin-hye, who starred in the hit TV series "You're Beautiful", held a sold-out fan meeting in Japan over the weekend, according to the show's PR manager Man Insight.
The two actors met with some 4,000 Japanese fans at the fan meeting, held at Tokyo's C.C Lemon Hall on June 26, Man Insight said in a press release.
The fan event, held twice at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., was organized by major Japanese entertainment agency AVEX. Tickets for the two shows reportedly sold out in five minutes.
""You're Beautiful" is very popular among young fans in Japan", an executive at AVEX was quoted as saying. "It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say there hasn't been a Hallyu drama that has caused this much craze in several years".
The series, which was first introduced in Japan through Hallyu-exclusive cable channel KNTV, will air on Fuji TV as part of the "Hallyu Alpha Summer Festival" starting July 20.
He became a phenomenon in Korea and throughout Asia after starring in the hit TV series "You're Beautiful" (SBS, 2009), in which he portrayed an eccentric lead singer of idol group A.N.JELL.
