  • Kim Myung-min Treated as Buan`s Vassal
  • [2005-03-03]
  • Actor Kim Myung-min has emerged as the number one VIP in Buan, North Jeolla Province. Since his appearance in the KBS TV1 epic drama `Immortal Admiral Yi Sun-shin,` Kim has been highly credited with publicizing Buan, the filming site of the drama. Buan has become very popular with tourists ever since seven filming sets of `Immortal Admiral Yi Sun-shin` were set up there, including the video theme park in Gyeokpo, the harbor set in Gyeokpo Harbor, the Jeolla Western Waters Command in Gunghang, the Japanese base in Seongcheon, Mt. Seokbul set in Haseo, and the Joseon Army camp in Wido.

    Nearby restaurants and hotels compete fiercely these days to invite Kim Myung-min as their guest. One restaurant has even created a `promoter meal,` which is an assortment of dishes that Kim Myung-min likes. And one cottage management company in Buan has provided the actor with a cottage where he can stay comfortably until July, when the shooting of the drama is finished.

    `Residents of this neighborhood always welcome Kim Myung-min like family. Kim, who spends five days a week in Buan, has closely bonded with Buan residents thanks to his down-to-earth personality,` said a person close to the actor.
