Ryu Si-won Receives Appreciation Plaque

Korean Wave star Ryu Si-won met with some 2000 fans from Japan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Taiwan and the U.S. on September 27 in the city of Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang Province.

Until recently, the actor typically held his meetings around the time of his birthday in Seoul, but this year he decided to hold a fan meeting in Gyeongju with the help of the North Gyeongsang provincial government, which has launched a campaign to attract foreign tourists to the region.

In a news conference that Ryoo held prior to the fan meeting at the Hyundai Hotel in the Gyeongju Bomun Tourism Zone, the actor said his goal was to get married before he turned 40. The actor added that he was ready to go down the aisle as soon as he met his significant other. "I have few opportunities to meet with women because I have to work hard in Japan, and only meet with my male friends in Korea when I have free time", said Ryoo.

On how he envisions his future wife, the actor said he liked feminine women who make him feel comfortable. He made everyone laugh by saying that he disliked career-driven and aggressive women, like the character Park Ki-ja who was played by Kim Hye-soo opposite Ryoo in the TV series "Style".

On the reason he decided to hold a fan meeting in Gyeongju, Ryoo said, "After holding my fan meetings in Seoul over the past three years, I wanted to present my overseas fans with a chance to sample Korean culture. That's why I picked Gyeongju. I was worried about the flu epidemic but we were able to hold this event without problems thanks to thorough preparations".

Ryoo also thanked his fans for coming all the way to Gyeonju to meet with him. He said, "After this event, I'm going to rest for a couple of weeks before I fly to Japan to prepare for my concerts. I'll give eight concerts in four Japanese cities starting from November".

Ryoo received an appreciation plaque from North Gyeongsang Province Governor Kim Kwan-yong and Gyeongju Mayor Baek Sang-seung for his contribution to publicizing North Gyeongsang Province to overseas tourists.
