Actor Seol Kyung-gu held his first fan meet-up event on Saturday.

At Yes 24 Live Hall in Gwangjin District, eastern Seoul, Seol met with more than 1,000 fans for about two and a half hours.

“Beginning very early in the morning, fans showed up for the event and cheerfully shouted out their support for the actor,” Seol’s talent agency C-JeS Entertainment said. “To pay back the love he has been receiving, Seol danced and sang in addition to talking with them throughout the 150 minutes.”

The agency also said that the actor personally shook hands with each of the attendees to express his gratitude.

A few of the guests included director Byun Sung-hyun of “The Merciless” (2017), in which Seol starred, and actor Kim Nam-gil, who co-starred with Seol in the crime thrillers “Memoir of a Murderer” (2017) and “Public Enemy Returns” (2008).

During Saturday’s event, Seol read a written letter to his fans. He wrote, “If I had not become an actor, I would not have been able to meet you fans. I’m always grateful to all the fans who show a sincere love for me. I get a lot of courage thanks to the fans’ love.”

The letter concluded, “Through this fan meet-up, I hope to show who I really am without any fakery. This [event] was a very memorable time that I will remember.”

Seol entered the entertainment industry in 1993, and has performed in a number of acclaimed films like “Hope” (2013), “Silmido” (2003) and “Peppermint Candy” (1999).

The actor recently wrapped up the shooting for films that are directly translated in English as “Birthday” and “Idol,” and will soon start shooting for “Perfect Man” and “Kingmaker.”
