Korean actress Park Eun-hye will be turning tour guide for a day, showing her Chinese fans around Jeju island next week, according to various media reports.
The actress will be meeting some 1,000 Chinese fans -- VIP clients of Hana Cosmetics which Park endorses -- at Jeju International Convention Center on May 13, introducing the popular Korean island and watching traditional art performances.
"When I go overseas, many people ask me about a good travel destination in Korea and everytime I told them about Jeju island," the actress was quoted as saying. "I am glad that I can have a good time at a place I love and with fans who like me. I hope that this will be opportunity to attract more foreigners to visit Jeju island."
The actress recently extended her contract with Hana Cosmetics after being their spokesperson for the past two years. The Chinese brand is said to have greatly benefited from their partnership with the Hallyu star, opening counters in 45 major department stores and over 2,000 cosmetics stores during the time they hired Park as their advertising model.
Park, who rose to fame in 2003 after appearing in the hit MBC TV series "Jewel in the Palace", is currently starring in MBC's morning drama "Pink Lipstick."
