Kwon Sang-woo visited Taiwan and the Philippines on a four-day promotion tour for the cosmetics brand “The Face Shop.” During his first visit to Taiwan in his career, Kwon said at a press conference Friday that he plans to star in a TV drama next spring to repay his Korean and foreign fans.
Kwon was greeted by about 1,000 of his fans and 100 members of the press at the Taoyuan International Airport, and some 250 reporters crowded Kwon’s press conference.
He was given star treatment in Taiwan, dining from a special menu at the most luxurious hotel in Taiwan built by the wife of the late Taiwanese leader Chiang Kai-shek. Kwon is the first entertainer to have dined at the hotel’s banquet hall.
The following day approximately 2,000 fans took part in a fan meeting and an auction of Kwon’s belongings. All the profit made at the auction was donated to an institution for disabled children in Taiwan.
Kwon then traveled to the Philippines on Sunday to participate in a Habitat for Humanity project together with Filipino NGO Gawad Kalinga. He carried bricks during the construction of housing in a poor neighborhood of the Philippines and donated five houses jointly with The Face Shop.
Kwon had visited Indonesia and Singapore last September for the first round of the Face Shop promotion tour.
