Japanese fans of Korean actor Bae Yong-joon are flocking to Jeju Island to catch a glimpse of the movie star whom they have affectionately dubbed "Yonsama".

According to the organizing committee for the Hallyu Expo in Asia, the first group of one-hundred-83 Yonsama fans arrived in the southern resort Monday afternoon by charter plane.

They came to attend the expo's opening ceremony and to see the Korean actor who is a goodwill ambassador for the event as well as Korean pop culture abroad.

The organizer expects some four-thousand Japanese fans to flock to Jeju, as several Korean stars including Bae will appear at the opener, heating up competition for seats on Japan-Jeju flights.
