Korean Wave star Bae Yong-jun has visited Japan, where he was welcomed by some 2000 fans. His visit comes more than a year after his last visit to the country.
Bae left for Japan on September 27 on a special Korean Air jet, which was rented for him. The actor arrived at Narita Airport at 3:20 p.m. He and actress Choi Ji-woo will attend a promotional event for the animation version of “Winter Sonata” at the Tokyo Dome.
Bae previously visited Japan in June last year to promote the epic drama “Legend.” It is his first visit to Japan alongside actress Choi Ji-woo, who played opposite him in the TV drama “Winter Sonata.”
Korean Air offered a special jet for the two stars. Some 2000 fans greeted Bae and Choi at Narita Airport. Bae’s fans kept asking him about his health, as the actor was recently diagnosed with septicemia. Bae responded with a smile and waved his hand. Walking among the crowd of fans, he said briefly that he was fine. Bae’s agency, BOF, said the two actors didn’t pause to greet their fans because of security concerns.
Bae, Choi and Ryu Seung-soo will attend the “Winter Sonata” event on September 29 at the Tokyo Dome. On September 30, Bae will hold an event marking the publishing of his book on the beauty of Korea. He will stay in Japan until October 2.
Two stars of “Winter Sonata,” Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo, will be in Japan together this fall. The first-generation hallyu stars will be in the Tokyo Dome to promote “Winter Sonata – Another Story,” a 26-part animation show dubbed with their voices. This is the first time that Bae and Choi will participate in the same event since their drama was broadcast in 2002.
On the following day Bae will also hold a promotional event for his book tentatively titled “The Beauty of Korea.” His representative said that as many as 90 thousand Japanese fans are expected to come to the Tokyo Dome to see Bae over the two-day event. Also the events will be telecast live via satellite feed to local theaters, so those who will not be able to attend the Tokyo Dome events can still see Bae on screen.
Top actress Song Hye-gyo was named the world’s first Asia Panda Goodwill Ambassador and visited a panda base situated in the city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province last Thursday.
Song spent time with giant pandas in the outdoor farm, feeding and playing with them. She was amazed to see real live pandas and spoke of the importance of protecting pandas and other endangered animals. The actress also was told that a panda at the Chengdu base had lived in Korea for three years and had a baby upon returning to China.
Actress Gu Hye-Sun, who has published a novel and debuted as a filmmaker, is poised now to make a foray into painting and music composing. She will hold an exhibition late next month in Insa-dong to showcase some 40 of her works.
Gu is also preparing a new-age album slated for release late this year. The album contains compositions that she has personally written. She has written 11 compositions so far and is currently recording them. Originally, they were intended for a movie that she has been in preparations to produce.
Last year, Gu drew the covert art for singer Gummy’s fourth album and included more than 40 of her illustrations in her first novel, “Tango,” which was published last month.
On May 17, Gu received the Audience Award at the Busan Asian Short Film festival for a short film that she had directed and for which she wrote the script.
The versatile and talented actress says she has many dreams and wants to try many things.

Actress Gu Hye-seon, 25, who played a leading role in the TV drama “Boys Over Flowers,” will display her versatile talent on the KBS TV1 show “Literature With A Voice,” which will air May 12 at 11:30 p.m.
The production team says that during the recording of the show, the actress played the piano on a stage decorated with her own drawings. She also recited extracts from the novel “Haak Haak” by Lee Oi-soo, Gu’s debut novel “Tango,” which was published last month, and the essay “Then I Didn’t Say Anything” by Chun Hye-rin.
The actress also spoke about her efforts to gain recognition for more than ten years and public misunderstanding that she rose to stardom solely because of her pretty looks. She also expressed gratitude to her parents for trusting her.
Top Korean actress Choi Ji-woo, 34, has also recently disclosed her relationship with her younger boyfriend, Lee Jin-wook, 28, who acted opposite her in a TV drama two years ago. She made headlines not only in Korea but in Japan as well, where she enjoys enormous popularity. The “older women with younger men trend” has been popular for quite a while now. Actress Chae Si-ra, 41, who is married to singer Kim Tae-wook, 40, as well as comedian Park Kyung-rim, 30, and her younger husband, Park Jung-hoon, 29, are just a few examples.
However, couples’ age differences have been on the rise recently, reaching as many as 5-6 years. Some couples have an age difference of 10 years. Actress Choi Jung-won, 28, made headlines because of rumors that she was dating actor Baek Sung-hyun, who is eight years her junior. Actress Kim Seon-ah, 34, also drew attention when rumors spread that she was dating singer Lee Seung-ki, 22, when the two appeared in a TV commercial for a beer brand. Though the rumor turned out to be groundless, the two received great attention for making a perfect couple despite their 12-year age difference. Rumors about Choi Jung-won and Baek Sung-hyun and Kim Seon-ah and Lee Seung-ki acted as a “noise marketing” tool, because they were spread when these couples appeared in the same productions, and contributed greatly to promoting the productions. It is also further proof that news about older women dating younger men is no longer surprising these days.
The popularity of younger men among older women and vice versa is also a result of changing public perception. As women’s social status keeps improving, nobody is surprised these days to see women dating younger men. The social stereotype that men must date younger women is also gradually losing ground. That also explains why many couples with younger men and older women are unabashed about their relationships.
