Korean actor Kim Bum, who is currently holding a fan tour throughout Asia, met with his fans in Thailand last week, according to his agency King Kong Entertainment on Thursday.
King Kong announced in a press release that Kim held a press conference attended by some 3,000 fans and reporters at Siam Paragon in Bangkok on July 30 and signed autographs as well as performing in front of about 1,500 fans at the official fan meeting the following day. The actor also prepared a special performance with a band for the fan event, singing song "Confession" from the soundtrack of MBC's drama “Still, Marry Me" and pop songs "Creep" and "Bad Case of Loving You."
On July 30, Kim visited King of Thailand, Bhumibol Adulyadej, who has been hospitalized for the flu and pneumonia since June. "I was in Thailand for my fan meeting when I heard the news that the King was ill. I wish him a fast recovery," the actor was quoted as saying.
Kim, 20, has starred in several dramas and movies since making his debut in 2006. He is well-known for his roles in "High Kick" and "Boys Over Flowers" alongside Korean stars Ku Hye-sun and Lee Min-ho. The actor has been visiting various countries in Asia, including Taiwan and China, while on tour. He will be arriving in Indonesia later on today for his first fan meeting in the country scheduled for August 7.
