Actor Ahn Jae-wook has successfully held a summer camp that he organized for some 550 fans from Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Malaysia at the Jeju Fitness Town.
The three-day camp, the tenth of its kind, began August 4 in a friendly atmosphere, with both the actor and his fans having great fun together. The singing contest that was held on the first day served as an opportunity to witness diverse Asian cultures, with participants showcasing the traditional costumes, dances and songs of their respective countries. Ahn’s fans expressed their strong affection for the actor by dancing the fan dance and the hula dance to his songs.
The Japanese team, the largest in the camp, sang Ahn’s song “Only You” in Korean to mark the 10th anniversary of the camp, while the Korean team prepared video footage about the history of the camp.
On the second day, the participants attended an athletic event, played games, held a barbecue party and a mini-concert, and made a campfire to strengthen their friendships. Ahn spent 20 hours with his fans, participating in the majority of the events.
Ahn told his fans that he has been feeling empty since the filming of his latest TV drama, “Mr. Good Bye,” ended, and even cut his hair in a bid to forget his role in the drama, in which he was completely engrossed. He also said that he wants to create a camp in which both his fans and their families can participate, adding that parents and children as well as married couples have already begun joining the camp.
A DVD about the camp will be produced in Japan and put on sale all over the world.
