Ji Chang Wook has returned to Korea after a night of singing, dancing and games at his Hong Kong fan meeting last night. His arrival didn’t go unnoticed by the press of course, who were there to document his arrival. Needless to say, he was also welcomed home by fans, of whom one inadvertently became the focus of many press reports.
His visit to Hong Kong was also widely covered by the local media, who were there to witness the warm and chaotic welcome by about 200 fans who were waiting for him at the Hong Kong International Airport.
His press conference at the shopping mall on Friday night was attended by more than 500 fans. Reporters noted that he had wanted to take pictures with fans but was not allowed to do so.
At the press conference, he said that this is the third time he is in Hong Kong, but he never had the chance to do proper sightseeing since he was always busy with schedules at the hotel. He hopes to be able to explore the streets and try the street food for a taste of Hong Kong (yeah, we know FOOD is more important to you than sightseeing right?). When asked who he wishes to work with in HK, he says he met director Stanley Tong in Shanghai recently and he even met the director 2 years ago in Korea. He says he found it a pity that the director’s latest movie wasn’t personally directed by him. He also mentioned actor Julian Cheung whom he met at the Dunhill event in HK several months ago, and said he wishes to work with Cheung someday. Ji Chang Wook has been learning Chinese, but he said he has been making slow progress because he has been busy with schedules.
And lastly, the highlight of his visit — the first stop of his Asia Tour in Hong Kong held on Saturday. The news videos mostly show the opening segment of his fan meeting, with reporters noting his cute slip-up with the piano which he tried to cover up with his cheeky smiles.
I won’t go into details about his HK fan meet for now, as I will be posting a proper fan account since I attended the show last night. 😀
