SEOUL, Jan. 21 (Korea Bizwire) – A wax figure of the popular Korean actor Lee Jong-suk will go on display in a global museum of wax dolls in Hong Kong this week, a local public relations agency working for the museum said Thursday.
The actor will unveil his wax figure in a ceremony at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong on Friday, The Tic Toc said.
“Lee enjoys great popularity all over Asia, not just in Korea,” the museum said. “It’s a great honor that we get to display his wax figure.”
Lee is the fourth Korean whose wax figure will be installed at the museum after actors Bae Yong-joon, Lee Min-ho and Kim Soo-hyun.
The 25-year-old debuted in 2005 as a runway model and began his acting career in the 2009 short film “Sympathy.” He became a star representing hallyu — the Asiawide boom of South Korean TV dramas, films and pop music — while starring in the 2013 drama “I Can Hear Your Voice.”
