Seems Like Song Joong Ki’s Arrival is as Popular as NDP

Would you wait 14 hours just to snag a front row view of your idol?

Because that’s what some fans did.

Song Joong Ki made his highly-anticipated visit to Singapore as part of promotions for his new movie, The Battleship Island on Tuesday evening, 8 August.

He appeared for a meet-and-greet session at 7 pm at the North Atrium, Suntec Tower Two. It was pretty expected, but the reception was insane.

Even the second and third levels were jam-packed, and they had to practically squeeze against the glass panels just to catch a glimpse of the Asian heart throb. Talk about adoration!

Anyway, Song shared some thoughts when asked how he had to deal with more challenging scenes in the movie. In the War Film, Song had to get sweaty, muddy and topless (don’t get all flustered already ladies, wait for the movie).

According to Yahoo News, Song acknowledged that they were difficult scenes to take, but they were necessary for the movie. Without them, it won’t be realistic.

The movie is based on a true story and set during the Japanese occupation (the next Dunkirk, anyone?) about an escape from a Japanese forced labour camp on Hashima island.

Song plays Park Moo-young, a member of the Korean independence movement, and is expected to make his appearance late in the movie.

While some of you might surely have gripes about his late appearance in the movie (honestly, if we ever catch the movie, 99% would be for Song Joong Ki), he clarified that it was for a better cause. He says that the director meant it that way so that the character can be portrayed best, and also because the story line can develop smoothly.

Well, guess what? Song Joong Ki and his co-stars, Hwang Jung-Min, So Ji-Sub and director Ryoo Seung-wan, were aware that Singapore’s birthday falls on the very next day, and they even wished happy celebrations to the attending fans.

Ryoo added that the story in the movie ended in 1945, which should be meaningful to Singaporeans too because it was the very year Singapore was freed from the Japanese.

After the meet-and-greet session, the stars headed down to Marina Bay Sands for an exclusive red carpet event.

Here’s hoping that this won’t be Song Joong Ki’s last visit to Singapore and that the film will be a commercial success!
