Korean actor, So Ji Sub, who has won the hearts of Asian fans with his role as Joo Joong Won in drama The Master’s Sun, will be in Singapore for his first fanmeet at The Star Performing Arts Centre on August 22.
As a result of the overwhelming success of The Master’s Sun, fans from abroad have expressed interest in meeting the actor. So Ji Sub’s company decided to put an Asia tour together for him to meet his overseas fans and to express his gratitude for the astounding support he has received personally.
The tour kick-started in Taiwan and was met with a great success. 3000 tickets were snapped up within three hours after going on sale on 1 June, causing the ticketing website to crash temporarily. An additional night was even added due to popular demand.
Presented by AC Music Entertainment Pte Ltd, the 100-minute fan-meet titled SOJISUB – Let’s have fun in Singapore 2014 will be the 36-year-old’s first visit to Singapore. He is said to be thrilled to meet his local fans and has promised to make this fan meet as engaging as possible. So Ji Sub, who has recently released a rap single ’18 Years’, will also be preparing various performances to make the event memorable and meaningful for everyone.

What’s The Master’s Sun about?
Tae Gong Sil (Gong Hyo Jin) is a secretary and tears easily. After an accident, she is able to see ghosts and this caused much distress to her life. Due to this unfortunate ability, she leads a reclusive life filled with many sleepless nights.
Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub), instead, is an ambitious and conceited CEO. He believes money is everything and only listens to what he wants to hear. After meeting Gong Sil, the self-centered Joong Won slowly starts to believe and trust her, eventually even trying to protect her.
