Heartthrob Hyun Bin, currently serving in the Marine Corps, ran a 6.25 km mini-marathon alongside about 400 model marines at the Han River Park on Sunday morning.
The race was held to mark the recapture of Seoul during the Korean War on Sept. 28, 1950. Hyun had been recommended by his commander.
The venue was so overcrowded with his fans and reporters that organizers had great difficulty managing the event.
Korean and foreign fans followed Hyun and cheered wherever he went. Many had sent messages to congratulate him on his 30th birthday, which fell on the same date.
