About 12,000 fans from various Asian countries will attend a fan meeting held by Lee Joon-ki, a lead actor of the film "King And The Clown" (2005).

According to Lee’s agency, Mentor Entertainment, Lee will hold a fan meeting at the Jamsil Gymnasium in Seoul for about three hours on May 21 from 2:00 p.m. An official from Mentor Entertainment said on May 16, "The upcoming fan meeting will be attended by about 12,000 fans from Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia, as well as from throughout Korea. We’ve received applications in advance from those who want to attend the meeting."

"King And The Clown" has attracted the largest number of viewers in the country, or more than 12 million viewers. At the upcoming fan meeting, Lee will say thanks to Korean fans, who have contributed to the film’s box-office success, and foreign fans, while singing songs and performing dances that he has practiced for this event.

The official from Mentor Entertainment said, "The upcoming fan meeting for Lee will likely be a large-scale performance rather than a mere fan meeting. We’ve installed a special stage and a large electric board. We’ll also show video footage of Lee as well as stage a special performance that will introduce Lee’s personal features."

Also joining the fan meeting as guest performers will be popular singers and groups such as Lim Jeong-hee, LeeSsang and Vibe.
