Three-dimensional footage of Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon's Tokyo Dome event from last year will be shown in theaters throughout Japan, according to his agency on Thursday.

The "Bae Yong-joon 3D in Tokyo Dome 2009", a 90 minute-long live video from the event, will open in some 100 3D theaters on May 22, KEYEAST announced in a press release.

"Viewers will be able to relive the event by seeing it on the large screens of 3D theaters with high-quality sound", an official at KEYEAST was quoted as saying. "We expect it to be a special experience for viewers and move their hearts at the same time".

The presentation, filmed by six 3D cameras at the site, will feature live shots from the two-day event; the premiere party for the animated version of his hit TV series "Winter Sonata" on September 29 and the promotional event for his photo essay "Discovering the Beauty of Korea" the following day.

The much-hyped event attracted some 90,000 fans to Tokyo Dome, who showed up to see Bae and his "Winter Sonata" co-star Choi Ji-woo, and was broadcast live via satellite in theaters around the country.

The 37-year-old actor shot to mega-stardom in Asia with the success of 2002 KBS TV series "Winter Sonata" and gained a huge following in Japan in particular, where he earned the nickname "Yonsama".

His photo essay "Discovering" contains self-taken photographs of various cultural artisans the actor met during his year-long travel around Korea. He authored the book in order to introduce Korean culture such as food, tradition and travel locations.

Bae is currently doing voice-over work for the animation version of "Winter Sonata", which currently airs on Japan's DATV.
