What a good year to be Lee Junki.
He headed a successful drama (Time of Dog and Wolf), won some awards, put out his latest film May 18 (aka Splendid Holiday), and is set to headline the anticipated upcoming Iljimae adaptation. He’s really skyrocketed to fame in the two years since his breakout role in the record-setting film King and the Clown — a role that almost went to Coffee Prince‘s most winning Prince Jin Harim, aka actor Kim Dong Wook.
Now he’s the first Hallyu star to have an official fan club in Thailand. The fan club officially opens on the 30th, and Lee Junki will participate at the opening ceremony, which occurs in downtown Bangkok.
Then, on December 3, he’ll visit the large northern city of Chiang Mai for the Christmas-lights ceremony, which is an annual event observed by the Thai royalty. (He’s also the first Hallyu star to be invited to this event.)
Then, on December 5, he will attend an event, also in Chiang Mai, celebrating King Bhumibol’s 80th birthday.
Wow, do they love him in Thailand or what?
