Six years since his last tour, South Korean superstar Hyun Bin kicked off his Asian fan meeting tour in Seoul on Saturday. He is set to meet his diehard Taiwanese fans at the National Taiwan University Sports Center in Taipei tomorrow, followed by a visit to Hong Kong next month. The tickets are priced between NT$2,600 (US$84) and NT$5,600.

The actor first shot to fame in 2005 with hit TV series My Lovely Sam-soon, and he reached a peak in his career in 2010 with popular TV series Secret Garden. To promote his Taipei fan meeting, during which some lucky fans will have a chance to have their picture taken together with their idol, Hyun recently recorded a message in Chinese to greet his local fans.

The heartthrob most recently appeared in weekend TV drama Memories of the Alhambra. The story is set in Spain and centers on a series of mysteries surrounding an “augmented reality” (AR) game. He was nominated for Best Actor at the 55th BaekSang Arts Awards for his role.
