South Korean heartthrob, Gong Yoo arrived in Taiwan on April 27 for his four-day tour in the country . He will meet his fans at Xinzhuang Gymnasium in New Taipei today in an event hosted by one of Taiwan’s top TV presenters, Mickey Huang (黃子佼).
According to the organizers, all 5,500 tickets for the Saturday’s event were sold out in just 10 minutes last March 25.
The 37-year-old model-turned-actor became one of the most popular Asian stars after he starred on “Train to Busan,” which broke a lot of South Korean cinema records and also a hit worldwide.
Gong Yoo made his acting debut in 2001 with the Korean TV series “School 4”. He rose to popularity with the hit South Korean TV drama “The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince” in 2007.
Recently, the actor achieved another huge success with the “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God” also known as “Goblin” (도깨비), which has yet to appear on Taiwanese TV at the end of June.
Gong Yoo also admits missing his co-stars and production team from his recent drama, Goblin. He also talked about his co-actor, Lee Dong Wook.
“When we were in the army together, I thought he was such a cool guy. Working with him on ‘Goblin’ made me realize he’s an even better person than I thought… Lee Dong Wook was especially considerate towards me. Because he’s been acting for so long, there was a sense of ease when acting alongside him.” -Gong Yoo
“Though all of us haven’t been able to stay in touch because we’re all so busy, I miss everyone.” -Gong Yoo
The actor will finish his tour in Taiwan this Sunday.
