Jang Guen Suk will be at the Osaka Dome in Japan on February 11 to promote his recent film “You’re My Pet.” Kim Ha Neul and other fellow actors from the film will be at the event as well. This promotion will include singing and dancing performances, as well as a talking segment. The Osaka promotion tickets for “You’re My Pet” quickly sold out right after the opening, and nearby hotel accommodations prices skyrocketed to approximately $700. Many credit Jang Geun Suk’s never-ending popularity for this success.
Jang Geun Suk is better known than any other Korean actors starring in the movie. Moreover, he has a wide-ranged fan base in Japan, unlike many other Hallyu stars in Korea whose main fan base is middle-age women. Based on his popularity, Jang Geun Suk has previously had a successful concert tour throughout Japan, selling more than 100,000 ticket throughout his 10 shows, which includes a sold-out concert at Tokyo Dome.
An official of the movie’s promotional event commented, “The selling out of ‘You’re My Pet’ tickets have been a good opportunity for us to re-examine Jang Geun Suk’s popularity in Japan. We hope that this would create more opportunities for other Korean stars to draw attention in Japan.”
