Chinese fans of Korean actor Ji Jin-hee are coming to Korea in droves to mark the release of his latest film, “The Old Garden.”
Ji earned a huge following in China after the nation aired TV drama “Jewel in the Palace,” in which he starred. He now has more than 100,000 fans belonging to some 130 fan clubs.
His agent said a number of Chinese fans have come to Korea in time for last Thursday’s theater release of “The Old Garden,” starring Ji and Yeom Jung-ah.
Ji’s fans showered him with love and support whenever he showed up at movie theaters to promote his film.
Ji receives so many gifts from his Chinese fans that his agent has to hire people to carry them all. Ji thanked the fans for their enthusiastic affection, saying that he was moved upon learning that some 300 Hong Kong fans were learning Korean to watch “The Old Garden.”
