Hallyu’s four kings to rock Japan

After the news broke out that a mega-scale Hallyu event – with the attendance of Lee Byung-hun, Jang Dong-gun, Song Seung-hun and Won Bin – is going to be held on December 17 in Tokyo, people are wondering how huge of a crowd the event will succeed in attracting.

The fans are showing tremendous reaction to the news. With each celebrity being huge Hallyu stars, the local fans could not believe all four would appear at a single event and even doubted the authenticity of the news. The ticket price of 15,800 yen (US$180) is getting some complaints though.

The actor will receive his appointment as a special UNICEF representative on September 6 from UNICEF Korea. Won Bin has received rehabilitation training since his discharge from the military in June last year.

Special UNICEF representatives are recognized all over the world as honorary volunteer workers and are chosen from among high-profile figures in the film, music, sports, art, fashion and performance sectors. Those who act as special representatives for a long duration are later appointed as UNICEF goodwill ambassadors.

As a UNICEF representative, Won Bin will participate in charity events for children, appear in public announcements and visit developing countries.
