Korean heart-throb visited by Nippon fans
Singtao Daily, Hong Kong, March 3, 2008

Over twenty fans of Oh Ji Ho flew to Seoul from Japan recently. They went to Oh’s agency and left him some gifts and letters written by his fans. On the following day, they visited Oh on location while he was making ‘Single Papa in Love’. Oh was so impressed that he patiently autographed for them one by one and took photos with the Japanese fans.

Oh Ji Ho shot to fame in Japan after ‘Fantasy Couple’ and ‘Get Karl! Oh Soo Jung’ had been shown on local channels. Oh’s agency indicated that they would seriously consider promoting Oh in Japan after he finished ‘Single Papa in Love’. Oh is also loved by Taiwan’s audiences. When he was on a promotional tour to Taiwan last May for ‘Fantasy Couple’, he received very warm welcome from the fans and media.

I saw this news a week or so ago. Most of the headlines were about Oh Ji Ho as a confirmed "hallyu star".

Thanks for the input.

Now if the words would have more meaning in reality, it would be great.

You know how I see it? We recognize him as an actor of stature. Too bad the news is just figuring that out! LOL

They can be so slow. :)
