Actor Hyun Bin [AM Entertainment]
Hallyu star Hyun Bin will visit Japan tomorrow by invitation of Japan's Fuji TV, according to the actor's agency AM Entertainment on Wednesday.
AM explained that Fuji TV had invited Hyun Bin to Japan in time with two of his dramas airing on the broadcaster's channels starting this month.
His 2005 hit MBC TV series "My Name is Kim Sam-soon" is set to air every afternoon on Fuji's public network starting January 11 as part of its newly established 'Hallyuα' project while his drama "Friend, Our Story" from last year will show on BS Fuji, Fuji TV's digital satellite broadcasting station, on January 17.
An official at Fuji TV was quoted as saying that it is rare for two shows of a single actor to air at the same time, adding that Hyun Bin will reignite the Hallyu, or Korean Wave, in Japan this year.
Hyun Bin, who debuted in 2003, rose to stardom with "My Name is Kim Sam-soon". He most recently appeared in film "I Am Happy" and has started filming "Late Autumn - 2010", a remake of a Korean film of the same name, alongside Chinese actress Tang Wei.
He made headlines last year after admitting to dating top Korean actress Song Hye-kyo, his co-star in last year's TV series "Worlds Within".
