Incoming Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, known as being a fan of "hallyu", or the Korean cultural wave, met Korean actor Lee Seo-jin in Tokyo Monday. Lee was on a tour to promote his TV drama "Yi San".

During the meeting at the incoming Prime Minister's office, Lee reportedly said that he hoped that the two countries would boost cultural exchanges. The incoming Prime Minister's wife Miyuki Hatoyama was also present.

A Japanese PR agency Color Pink Japan arranged the meeting to promote "Yi San", which recounts the high-flying life and times of Yi San (played by Lee) or King Jeongjo (1752-1800), the 22nd king of the Joseon Kingdom (1392-1910).

NHK started airing the Korean drama last month.
