Korean actor Jo Hyun-jae will be holding fan meetings in several Asian countries this coming August, according to his agency STARNHIT Entertainment on Tuesday.
STARNHIT announced in a press release that Jo, who completed his mandatory two-year military service on June 19, will hold his first fan meeting in Osaka on August 21 and in Tokyo the next day. He will also be visiting Hong Kong and Macau the following week.
During his trip to Hong Kong and Macau, taking place as an official event on invitation of the country's TV service provider Now TV, Jo will have interviews with the local press, shoot a television show and hold an autograph session.
Jo will be the first Korean star to appear in the show titled "Korea Stars Now," shot by local cable company OCB, a Hallyu program featuring the daily life of the actor, which will premiere in Hong Kong through Now TV.
"The fan meetings are a way for Jo to show his appreciation for his fans who have supported him while he was in the military," explained an official from STARNHIT, adding that they have future plans for the actor to visit other Asian countries.
Jo, 30, first started out in the entertainment industry through the commercial for sports drink Pocari Sweat in 2000. He became well-known in Asia for his roles in SBS' "Rays of Sunshine" (2004), "Only You" (2005) and KBS' "Three Dads and One Mom" (2008).
He also appeared in movies "GP506" (2008) and "Untold Scandal" (2003) alongside Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon and Cannes best actress award-winner Jeon Do-youn.
