Hollywood star Tom Cruise made his ninth visit to Korea on Sunday to promote his latest movie "Mission: Impossible – Fallout." He came along with director Christopher McQuarrie. Seoul is the first stop on the actor's Asian promotional tour for the sixth installment of the franchise. The film will have its worldwide premiere in Korea on July 25.
Cruise is known for being friendly with fans, and did not disappoint his Korean admirers on Sunday, warmly greeting them at the airport and signing autographs. In the latest film, Cruise's character is faced with a dilemma, as all options for completing the obligatory mission appear likely to result in a disastrous outcome.
Cruise reportedly performed most of the stunts himself, including a motorcycle chase in the center of Paris, skydiving from an altitude of 7,600 m, and an action scene in a helicopter.
