On June 23, actor Jung Il Woo held a autograph session with fans at the Berjaya Times Square shopping mall in Malaysia as the spokesmodel for cosmetics brand Holika Holika.
With Jung Il Woo’s popularity and recognition growing in Asia, organizers anticipated many fans would show up but couldn’t have imagined some 3,300 fans would show up to catch a glimpse of the star that day.
Moreover, the fans came from beyond only Malysia but places like Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Dubai and more with some even waiting out from the shopping mall’s opening.
A representative for the cosmetics brand shared, “We knew Jung Il Woo’s popularity was rising in the China [and Southeast Asian] regions but we were truly surprised to see over 3,000 fans from all over Asian show up for the autograph session. In particular, watching the fans sing happy birthday in three different languages for the actor touched not only Jung Il Woo but the staff as well.”
