TikTok, the leading destination for short-form mobile videos, and SALT Entertainment announced that actor Kim Seon-ho will hold his first global online fan meeting exclusively on the platform, on January 17 at 7PM (PST). Viewers can tune in to the English livestream on the TikTok Stage account (@tiktok_stage) or watch the Korean version on Kim Seon-ho’s TikTok account (@seonho_kim).
Fans of Team Han Ji Pyeong will be thrilled to learn about their chance to get up-close-and-personal with their favorite Start-Up actor. Titled ‘TikTok Stage Connect – Seon-ho’s Favorite’, TikTok users can look forward to a variety of sessions, including listening to behind-the-scenes stories of Start-Up, the latest romance K-Drama to sweep the globe; participating in a telepathy game to guess Seon-ho’s preferences; and watching him discover his fans’ wishes.
There will also be several pre-events on TikTok’s event page, where fans can submit requests for what they want to hear from Kim Seon-ho or even upload a duet with him. The pre-event is expected to air globally, with participants from across different countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan and Korea.
“As a short-form video app with a mission to spread creativity and bring joy, we hope to continue to provide opportunities for global fans and artists to connect on the platform,” said John Castro, User and Content Operations Manager, TikTok Philippines. “Kim Seon-ho has certainly captured the hearts of many and brought happiness through his TV dramas, and we look forward to jointly hosting this online meet-up with SALT Entertainment.”
In response to the overwhelming love and support received, Kim Seon-ho’s agency SALT Entertainment shared, “We sincerely appreciate the attention and support that fans have given to Kim Seon-ho in 2020. To relieve the sadness of not being able to meet in person due to COVID-19 and show appreciation for all the support, we have prepared the first global online fan meet-up. We ask for your huge support and active participation as we work hard to organise the virtual event.”
