Actor Bae Yong-joon, who is visiting China to promote the movie "April Snow", is being escorted by 150 public order and police officers in Beijing.

Bae's agency, BOF, said that the actor was provided with a security detail to escort him to Beijing's major theaters following a special premiere on Nov. 12, and that some 150 security officers were dispatched to prevent any safety accidents. The agency added that Bae's visit was reminiscent of a visit by a head of state.

Upon his arrival in Beijing on Nov. 11, Bae held an official press conference and had lunch with the world-renowned film director Zhang Yimou.

On Nov. 12, the actor gave interviews to major local media organs, and participated in a special premiere of "April Snow" at the Beijing Hall along with director Heo Jin-ho. "April Snow" was the first movie ever to be screened at the hall, which is located within a 10-minute ride from Tiananmen Square and is one of the largest in China.

"The audience of more than 2,500 welcomed Bae and Heo with a big round of applause when the two appeared onstage", said a person from BOF.

When Bae appeared in front of the audience, Chinese fans shouted, "We love you, Bae Yong-joon", for more than 10minutes, and sang a song written especially for him. In response, Bae said in Chinese, "Thank you. I will visit China again soon".

Following a Q&A session, the actor donned a red traditional Chinese costume that his Chinese fans presented to him, and posed for the cameras. To commemorate his visit, more than 10,000 fans signed their names on a banner.

All proceeds from the premiere were donated to the Chinese Copyright Protection Association. Bae will return to Korea on Nov. 13.
