Korean actor Wi Ha-joon will be in Manila next month for a fan meeting, according to the Filipino clothing brand Bench, which he endorses.
“Better get your hearts ready ’cause our #GlobalBENCHSetter, #WiHaJun is set to give you all the K-lig feels on May 21, 2023 at the New Frontier Theater. 💓😍 SAVE THE DATE, fam!!” Bench said in its posts on social media.
The fan meeting, dubbed “Gameplay with Wi Ha Hun,” will be held a year after the Korean heartthrob’s introduction as a Bench celebrity endorser. Bench announced his inclusion in its roster of international brand ambassadors called Global Bench Setters on May 14 last year.
Fans of the “Squid Game” actor will still have to wait for the official Wi Ha-joon in Manila fan meeting mechanics. Bench said these will be posted “real soon.”
Wi Ha-joon rose to international fame with his portrayal as a cop in the Netflix survival drama series “Squid Game” in 2021. He was recently seen in the K-dramas “Little Women” and “Bad and Crazy.” He also appeared in “Something in the Rain,” “Romance is a Bonus Book,” and “18 Again.”
