For his maiden Singapore visit, Byeon Woo-seok has a few things to check off his list.

“I want to have fun with my fans (affectionately known as Tong Tongs)” he said when HallyuSG asked him how he felt about meeting his local fans for the first time.

“They’ve spent time, money and resources I don’t want [fans] to waste it,” the Lovely Runner star added.

He also wanted to embark on a food hunt in Singapore. His friend, who resides in Singapore, gave him a list of places to go, which steered away from the classic chilli crab. The list included ten places to visit, including restaurants serving pasta and hamburgers.

When it comes to local food, he would like to try the classic chilli crab dish and chicken rice.

On top of exploring new food places, his latest passion lies in exploring different cultures and the various ways people express their affection. His fans, too, have their unique way of showing him love through letters.

“I receive a lot of letters from my fans at my fan meetings,” he told the press. The actor coquettishly added that his time with fans is extremely memorable, and “every one of these interactions are like letters”.
