Park Hae-jin makes special appearance in the flesh at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong as his wax figure officially joins K-wave Zone.
PETALING JAYA: Those unmistakable chiselled looks are now forever etched on a wax figure in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong as famous Korean actor Park Hae-jin has officially joined the K-wave Zone there.
Looking dapper in a navy blue suit and black bow-tie, with his famous locks swept just so across his delicate forehead, Park made an appearance in the flesh at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong and was pictured examining his wax replica that might as well have been his real life twin.
Cheering fans, selected from a social media campaign for the special occasion, were there to see their favourite celebrity unveil the wax figure of himself.
Dressed in identical suits, both Park and his wax figure carried a bouquet of red roses each and sat on identical stools as they looked into the camera sporting identical poses for a media shot.
Park’s wax figure, that expertly catches the tenderness of his features and his general aura, will be on display at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong for three months.
Speaking about the wax replica of himself, Park said, “I deeply appreciate the professionalism of the team.
“During the sitting, the team asked me to hold the exact same pose. Although I chose a sitting pose for my figure, it is not easy at all.
“The moment of unveiling was truly magical. When I looked at my wax figure, it’s as if I was looking into a mirror! Thank you Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. I am thrilled to have a wax figure of myself.”
Addressing the crowd at the unveiling ceremony was general manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, Jenny You, who said, “Mr Park devotes his efforts to his acting career as well as participates in volunteer work proactively.
“I am sure our guests will be excited to see Park at our attraction and it will definitely enhance interaction with visitors. It also makes our star-studded Madame Tussauds Hong Kong continue to dazzle at The Peak.”
Park made his debut as an actor in 2006, and went on to star in a string of famous dramas that included “My Love from the Star”, “Doctor Stranger” and “Cheese in the Trap”.
The heartthrob is also known for his philanthropy and volunteerism and became the first South Korean to be honoured with the Civic Public Welfare Award in China in 2014.
