SEOUL - A CHINESE fan of My Love From The Star actor Kim Soo Hyun reportedly attempted to buy the property next to Kim's for an inflated price of 4.5 billion won (S$5.4 million), according to Korean media.
During the latest episode of TV Chosun's Pumpkin Seed, pop columnist Kim Tae Hoon talked about Kim Soo Hyun's popularity in China.
He said: "The drama My Love From The Star aired in 15 Asian nations, but it was not broadcast in China because Kim's character was an alien.
"Since one Internet website bought the soap's publication rights and published it online, the drama has garnered a whopping 3.1 billion views."
Entertainer Lee Sang Min said there was one Chinese fan who tried to buy the house next to Kim's by paying an additional 500 million won. The market price of the actor's house is around 4 billion won.
"But the owner of the house rejected the offer," he added.
Host Kim Gura joked: "The neighbour must also be a fan of Kim Soo Hyun."
