Actor Park Hae-jin’s home page was flooded with so many applications for his fan club that its server went down, according to Mountain Movement Entertainment on Thursday. The application period for the international fan club “Club Jin’s” opened on Monday and some 2,000 fans from 21 countries have signed up to join, according to MME.
Club Jin’s members will be given free goods and offered tickets for events involving Park.
MME is in talks with brands that Park endorses, including hair salons, restaurants, dermatology clinics, as well as multiplex chain Lotte Cinema, to offer discounts to Club Jin’s members.
The agency added it will premiere a webtoon about Park’s life exclusively to members of the fan club in Korean, Chinese, Japanese and English, starting July 1. The webtoon will be authored by Hyesso.
Application for the club’s first batch of fans can be done on MME’s website until June 20. Club Jin’s will be set up in September 2016.
