Actors Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun, along with singers Sung Shi Kyung and Lyn, can’t hide their uneasiness having to attend an event in China.
According to an article in Soompi, “Man from the Stars” is currently experiencing explosive popularity in China and the leads and OST singers headed to China to attend a promotional event hosted by Samsung Electronics for one of their phones, which will take place during the evening of April 18.
Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun were recently appointed as models for Samsung Electronics in China to help strengthen the brand. The promotional event is being organized as a “Man from the Stars” concert where Sung Shi Kyung and Lyn are to attend.
However, due to the Jindo ferry tragedy on April 16, many agencies have been quick to delay comebacks, broadcasts have cancelled dramas and variety programs the last couple days, and celebrities have left their condolences and thoughtful messages to the victims and their families through their SNS accounts.
The celebrities scheduled to make appearances have asked the organizers to cancel the event, but there have been no news of a cancellation. If the organizers decide to continue with the event, the actors and singers are obligated to attend as its in the contract. It’s been reported that Sung Shi Kyung and Lyn arrived in China on April 17 for the concert rehearsal.
