Park Hae-jin to promote drama in Taiwan
HNS HQ, the promoter of the fan meet, announced Thursday that the event will be hosted at the Taipei International Convention Center on June 9.
According to the promoter, Park’s popularity in China and Taiwan has gone through the roof since he played the role of Yoo Jung in the drama. The event was scheduled upon the request of fervent local fans.
The fan meet will be arranged by the Taiwanese company TRUCOSA, which also arranged various events for big-name international stars including Justin Bieber and Maroon 5.
The drama, despite its early popularity, was surrounded in controversy in later stages due to a conflict between the drama production crew and the author of the original webtoon.
As the 16-episode drama series is going to be remade into a film, the Korean Wave star is set to reprise his role as Yoo Jung.
