[ACTOR NEWS] Hyun Bin will visit Indonesia this month?

I have not written much updates these days, I struggle to find anything that interests me.  But when there is news that get me excited, you will sure be the first one to read it here 🙂

Hyun Bin, finally!  I have two posts on him today.  The first one got me excited, is that he will be visiting Jakarta, Indonesia this month.  Though I am not from Indonesia but I know many of you are, so I am just simply excited for you,  here he comes ladies.

According to the Korea National Tourism Organization officials, Korea will participate in a cultural event, mainly driving by exporting submarines.  And Hyun Bin, part of the Marines will visit the capital, Jakarta, Indonesia later this month.

Besides Hyun Bin, there will be 8 other celebrities who current serve in the Army joining this event.

However, when this is asked at the Marine Corps officials, they mention nothing is said on their end.

I put a big question mark on this news title, so will he or will he not? We shall keep each other posted 😉

Just on the side,  if this turns out to be the real deal, isn’t Korea pushing the Hallyu effect a little too far this time? Celebrity can endorse a TV or refrigerator, but submarines? Oof, that is a little far stretched.  Not anything to do with the celebrities, they follow orders, but just suggesting people at the top to think about this.
