Park Shin-yang joins ranks of hallyu stars

2005/12/07 | 109 views | Permalink | Source

Actor Park Shin-yang, whose popularity skyrocketed after his role in the SBS TV drama "Lovers in Paris", will hold his first fan meeting in Japan at Zepp Tokyo on January 26 at 3 p.m.

Public interest in Park has soared since "overs in Paris" aired in Japan on Nihon TV back in March. IMX, the organizer of Park's fan meeting, published the actor's picture on the cover of the September edition of the hallyu magazine Brokore, and produced an official multi-content Web site for the drama.

The site's bulletin board has been flooded with messages from Japanese fans expressing their desire to meet Park and thanking the creators of the site. All buyers of "overs in Paris" disc sets, comprised of the novel on which the drama is based, a short-film DVD, a CD of original soundtracks and a DVD of music videos, will have a chance to win a ticket to Park's fan meeting through a drawing.

Park's popularity will likely rise as a big-screen star as well when his upcoming movie, "The Big Swindle", opens in Japan on January 3.

"Park's character in this story is an introverted, self-focused person who looks quiet and composed on the outside but can talk endlessly once he opens his mouth. His character is very much similar to Park's personality in real life. Park is the prototype of his character, and I was lucky that he agreed to play the role", said the movie's director, Choi Dong-hoon, in a recent interview with Japanese journalists.
