Hot on the heels of Kang Ji Hwan holding his Japanese fan meeting, Song Joong Ki was also there this past weekend holding a more intimate gathering with his fans in Tokyo. So intimate, he managed to shake hands with every single fan who attended. O__O So. Jealous. The Japanese fans get the best stuff, whilst we elsewhere suffer. Joong Ki has been popular in Japan since Sungkyunkwan Scandal, but I reckon the Japanese obasans will do a collective jaw-drop when they watch his mindbogglingly splendid performance in Tree with Deep Roots. This was the year he went from cute boy with talent and charisma to bona fide actor with screen presence. His currently airing rom-com movie Penny-Pinching Romance with Han Ye Seul hasn’t done well at the domestic box office, but the Fall rom-coms have been a miss generally. Up next is the movie Wolf Boy with Park Bo Young. I’m so excited about that pairing its not even funny.
I know he’s sitting on what looks like a throne descending from the sky, which is all sorts of silly, but because it’s Joong Ki, I think he looks perfectly adorable being the prince of the party!
