Actor Kong Yoo will hold a news conference and a fan meeting in Tokyo on August 5 and another fan meeting in Osaka on August 6.
The actor’s agency said Kong has decided to meet with his Japanese fans at their own request and will meet with some 1,700 fans in Tokyo and Osaka. Kong’s popularity rose in Japan for his role in the TV drama “Hardtack Teacher and Star Candy,” which aired on Japan’s KNTV twice.
"I look forward to meeting my Japanese fans. I’ve been practicing singing and honing my Japanese-language skills to communicate with my fans in Japan," said Kong.
Kong will hold a fan meeting in Korea on August 20 with his official fan club “YOO&I.”
