Actor Bae to Appear in Japanese Textbook

2006/03/30 | 50 views | Permalink | Source

A photo of actor Bae Yong-joon will appear in a Japanese high school textbook on geography.

The Japanese Education Ministry on Thursday said it will insert in spring next year a photo of Bae's arrival at Tokyo's Narita International Airport in November 2004 with an airport-record 3,500 fans greeting him.

The book's editor said a revised domestic law allows textbook photos of foreigners only in the context of relations with Japan, and that Bae's picture symbolizes bilateral cultural exchanges.

Nicknamed "Yonsama" by the Japanese, Bae is the most popular foreign celebrity in Japan largely due to his role in the hit miniseries "Winter Sonata".
