Fuji TV is in the process of producing a documentary on Korean Wave star Song Seung-hun. The star's management said the Japanese broadcaster Japan decided to produce a two-hour-long documentary program with the working title, "Come on in. We welcome you, Song Seung-hun."
The buzz ahead of the star's discharge from military service on Nov. 15 is reaching fever pitch, but it is still unique for an entire Japanese program to be devoted a Korean star.
The broadcaster is in the planning stages of the film now, and will air it on Dec. 21. It began after a request by Fuji, which together with the creation of a website for his Japanese fans reflects the star's rising celebrity there.
The program will be broadcast on the entertainment industry shows "Tokudane!" and "Mejamashi TV."
"I'm happy that the fans still love and take care of me," the actor says. "They were the reason that I could faithfully complete my time in the service."
