Eyagi announced in a press release that the actor -- as a representative of Korea -- will be attending the "Shanghai TV Festival" to be held June 8 in Shanghai.

During his Shanghai visit, he is planning to meet his Chinese fans and conduct interviews with the local media.
Park also has several activities to carry out in Korea today and over the weekend.
First, he will be watching the final episode of "Prosecutor Princess", which airs tonight, with fans at Seoul's Gangnam Cinus theater.
Then on Friday, he will be inviting Japanese fans to the show's wrap-up party and take part in a fan meeting the following day.
Park, whose real name is Park Pyung-ho, made his debut in 2005 through KBS2 TV series Sassy Girl, Chun-hyang" and has since appeared in several dramas including "Iljimae" (SBS, 2008) and "What's Your Star ??" (MBC, 2006).
He is currently preparing to hold fan meetings in five Japanese cities.
