As one of the members of the longest running idol group in Korea, Shinhwa’s Kim Dong Wan became Japan’s 28th ‘Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK)’ poster model.

With various hallyu stars, such as BoA and Kim Jang Hoon, chosen as the poster model every year, this is the first time a member of a group was chosen as the model by himself.

Kim Dong Wan has been active in his activities as a Shinhwa member as well as a soloist in both Korea and Japan.

The TOPIK will be taken by students in several educational institutes in Japan and this poster, carrying the face of the Shinhwa member, will also be distributed all throughout Japan.

In recent years, the number of people taking the TOPIK has risen along with the popularity of hallyu internationally.

In related news, Kim Dong Wan is awaiting the opening of his new movie Deranged on July 5, making it his return to the big screen in eight years.
