Descendants of the Sun actor Song Joong-ki seems to be stealing hearts everywhere. In Thailand, he has created a new breed of fashionistas. T-shirts and mobile casings bearing Song Joong-ki’s face are a common sight in the fashion-forward country. The craze for Descendants of the Sun star was visibly evident during his recent visit in Thailand.
More than 4,000 Thai fans gathered at Thunder Dome, Nonthaburi in Bangkok, to catch a glimpse of the Korean superstar.
Just like his drama persona Yoo Si-jin, Song Joong-ki was down to earth and greeted fans with warmth and humour.
Dressed in a smart white shirt and beige trousers, Song Joong-ki made a dramatic entrance on the stage. The moment he stepped on the dais, there was a huge round of applause and cheering at the dome.
On a fan’s request, Song Joong-ji performed his signature phone flip and also sang ‘Happy Birthday’ for one of his fans.
