Korean singer and actor Kim Hyun-Joong meets his Filipino fans.

MANILA, Philippines – Hundreds of people trooped up at the Trinoma Mall in Quezon City on Thursday just to catch a glimpse of Korean superstar Kim Hyun-joong.

Kim said he is delighted to meet his Filipino fans and be back in the country again.

“Thank you for all the love that you are giving me,” he told his fans.

This is the second time that Kim came to the Philippines.

In 2010, he had a concert in the country along with the popular K-Pop band “The Beast.”

Meanwhile, Kim said he is planning to have an Asian tour and he wants to include the Philippines in his stopovers.

He rose to fame in Philippines after he played the role of Yoon Ji-hoo, a member of F4 in "Boys Over Flowers," which aired on ABS-CBN.

He was previously the leader of the Korean boyband SS501 before he left the group to pursue a solo career.

He also played the lead role in the series "Playful Kiss,” which was also shown here in the country. – Report from Gretchen Fullido, ABS-CBN News
