Taipei, April 29 (CNA) South Korean actor Gong Yoo, the star of the hit film “Train to Busan,” sang a Korean song to thousands of his fans at an event in New Taipei Saturday and thanked them for their support.
Dressed in a white suit, Gong sang his favorite song at the start of his meeting with fans at Xinzhuang Gymnasium, which was hosted by Mickey Huang (黃子佼), one of the most popular TV presenters in Taiwan.
The 5,500 tickets for Saturday’s event were sold out within 10 minutes of going on sale on March 25, according to the organizers.
“Seeing all the fans here today, I am really grateful,” said Gong, who is on his first visit to Taiwan.
The celebrity, who is often recognized wherever he goes, was asked by the host what he would do if he was visiting a place where no one recognized him.
