Hyun Bin was joined by Philippines-based host Sam Oh, Korea-based co-host Park Kyung-Lim, and select lucky fans who participated in the event via online call.

“I think touring the Philippines would be a great experience,” said Korean megastar Hyun Bin as he mused about the opportunity to travel once again, especially to visit his Filipino fans, in the second leg of the Smart Hallyu Hangouts.

Hyun Bin recounted many stories and details during the interview, especially about his interesting and memorable experience shooting his iconic commercial for Smart.

“The Smart commercial was full of visual effects. Everything that surrounded me was computer graphics, so I had to act in an empty space,” Hyun Bin said about the ad, which he said he liked. “It was exciting to imagine what the result would be like, but at the same time, not knowing if I’m doing all right or even what I was doing made me feel a little awkward. But it was exciting as well.

The actor provided fans with an inside glimpse at his life and personality, entertaining them with unique facts. These include his childhood desire to be a detective, his consideration of a career as a golfer or even a businessman now, whether he searches his name on the internet, his self-esteem, his real-life piano-playing abilities, his prior dramas and films, and much more.

Hyun Bin also thanked his Filipino fans for their unwavering support and vowed to visit them as soon as he can after the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

“I’m always grateful to my fans,” he said. “All I can do for them to repay their love is to continue acting, hoping it would make their life a little better. Although it was for a short time, I got to talk with my fans and talk about my work for a short while. It was nice to communicate with my fans, even though I could only see them through a screen.”

The event had more surprises in store for Smart subscribers, as two lucky fans were able to hop on a quick video call with Hyun Bin himself on the set, while others got to win special prizes from Smart. The event wrapped up with a digital photo op session with all the attendees.

Smart Hallyu Hangouts is one of the brand’s ways of bringing amazing experiences to its valued subscribers. Despite the physical limitations brought about by the pandemic, Smart champions its dedication and cutting-edge technology to bring its Korean endorsers closer to their Filipino fans.

Smart Hallyu Hangouts is powered by Smart, the country’s mobile data network as reported by third-party mobile internet analytics firm Ookla and Opensignal.
