Yoo Jae Suk has been gaining explosive popularity in Hong Kong, as well as China.

Hong Kong netizens who saw his pictures reacted by saying, “There’s reason that Yoo Jae Suk is popular in Korea”, “He is the model for the courteous people”, and “Please come again.”

With the growing popularity of his variety show, SBS’ Running Man, Yoo’s popularity has been rising. When the show’s cast members visited Hong Kong for the shooting of its special episode last month, local fans crowded the airport. To this, cast members including Yoo greeted them in a sincere manner. It’s no longer surprising to see local fans pack the airport when hallyu stars visit their country, but there weren′t many stars who show their gratitude in that manner.

Notably, Yoo has been garnering attention as his pictures spread via social network service. Attention is being paid as to how much popularity Yoo will continue to gain.
