After he shot to fame as “Professor Do” in hit drama You Who Came from the Stars, Korean heartthrob Kim Soo Hyun has been shuttling all over Southeast Asia for fan meetings and numerous work commitments.

His schedule is nothing if not jam-packed. In a span of two days Soo Hyun attended Samsung’s promotional event for the Galaxy S5 in Beijing last Friday, made appearances at a Hyundai car show in Beijing, and attended an event for a skincare brand in Vietnam on April 21.

The 26-year-old will be resuming his promotional activities for skincare brand BEYOND in Hong Kong today, and has been paid TW$39 million (approximately S$1.65 million) to do so.

Numerous fans were waiting to welcome their idol when Soo Hyun touched down in Hong Kong at night yesterday. However, the actor did not pause to interact with his fans and only bowed to acknowledge their presence before he left the scene hastily in a vehicle.

Before he checked into the presidential suite at The Mira, a hotel located in Tsim Sha Tsui, the management team booked two whole floors in order to ensure that he would not be disturbed.

Soo Hyun is slated to appear at a fan meeting today, after which he will do a store visit in Causeway Bay. To ensure his personal safety, the Hallyu star has 150 security personnel escorting him around during his five-minute visit to the store.

Soo Hyun is said to be pocketing an estimated TW$876 million (approximately S$3.7 million) in earnings from his stopover in Hong Kong.

And it doesn’t end there. After he completes his activities in Hong Kong today, Soo Hyun will be setting off for Indonesia, where he has a fan meeting in Jakarta. On Friday, he will be up in the air again, this time en route to Singapore.

The "2014 Kim Soo Hyun Asia Tour 1st Memories in Singapore" fan meet will be held at the Singapore Expo on April 27.
