Bae Yong-joon in Mystery Visit to Presidential Office

Posted by diopatra on June 25, 2009

Actor Bae Yong-joon visited Cheong Wa Dae on Tuesday, reportedly meeting spokesman Lee Dong-kwan and deputy spokeswoman Kim Eun-hye, and many at the presidential office itself were curious why.

One official at the presidential office said the visit might have something to do with President Lee Myung-bak’s visit to Japan this coming Sunday. Bae is an extremely popular figure in Japan, especially among women, and runs a traditional Korean restaurant in Tokyo. That leads to speculation that Bae might be given some role in one of Lee’s projects, to make Korean food more popular abroad.

“It’s true that Cheong Wa Dae is planning something to do with Bae during the president’s visit to Japan, but for protocol reasons nothing has been finalized”, another official at Cheong Wa Dae said.
