Ayam-haseyo Min-Ho Oppa! It’s all about ayam (chicken) fest in the heart of Kuala Lumpur on the evening of Mar. 25, 2016 as the city welcomed the global ambassador of the famous Korean chicken franchise Kyochon, the Hallyu wave drama heartthrob, Lee Min Ho.
Despite the raining during this mini Meet & Greet session, the enthusiastic fans who have waited all morning continued to passionately wait as they did not want to miss their chances to meet the dashing Lee Min Ho.
As the clock struck sharp at 6 p.m., the actor walked to the stage in the middle of the Pavilion Mall entrance to grace the launching of the new Kyochon franchise. As expected from a Korean hearththrob, his appearance was simultaneously welcomed with a thunderous roar from fans.
When asked about the uniqueness of Kyochon chicken, Lee Min Ho sincerely stated that Kyochon chicken indeed healthy , natural and ‘ sedap ‘ (tasty). He loved fried chicken and he confessed that he was indeed a fan of Kyochon since he was a boy. He also shared with the crowds his secret to enjoy Kyochon – Lee Min Ho style: to mix his favourite flavour, honey-flavoured series with Kimchi Fried Rice. Even to imagine this scrumptious meal will make us drool over. I would recommended the readers should try too.
He also thanked Kyochon for giving the opportunities to be able to be closer to his fans especially outside South Korea through the mini gathering event like this. Despite this was not his first visit to Kuala Lumpur, he enjoyed coming here as the warm welcomed and friendly gestures from Malaysian fans truly touched his heart. He promised the fans to visit this country again and the fans too promised him to continue to support and love Kyochon.
The highlight of the evening was the photo session and meet-and-greet for the lucky winners of the contest held by Kyochon Malaysia. All winners walked home with autographed calendars single-handedly given by Lee Min Ho himself. It was then succeeded by a table-signing ceremony and the autographed table by Lee Min Ho will be displayed at the newly opened Kyochon outlet in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
From a fan boy of Kyochon to Kyochon’s ambassador, it was a tasteful (fried chicken) journey for Lee Min Ho. As one said ‘Part of the secret success in life is to eat what you like’ and the Kyochon chicken will taste even better when his fans can be able to enjoy and love it as much as he do.
KpopStarz would like to thank Kyochon Malaysia for the event coverage opportunity.
