Chinese fans promote Korean actor
Since early this month, 10 buses have been circulating Seoul bearing posters advertising Jang’s newest drama, “Beautiful Man,” all paid for by the fans.
In addition, beginning tomorrow, there will be ads at supermarkets for the series, scheduled to last until it ends.
“I want to thank my fans,” said Jang through his agency. “I am touched by their warm encouragement. This is more than enough for me to forget about the cold weather. I will try even harder to do my best in the drama.”
“Beautiful Man” starts on Wednesday on KBS. For the series, Jang plays a character named Dokgo Matte, a handsome charmer who can easily seduce just about any woman, no matter how talented and successful.
