South Korean fans Thursday arranged a surprise birthday party for Tony Leung during his trip to Seoul to promote the Red Cliff.
Tony Leung smiles to the camera at the surprise birthday party arranged by his South Korean fans in Seoul on Thursday, June 26, 2008.
Chinese portal website Sina reports that the charming actor only prepared to join a fans meeting with supporters there who hadn't seen him for four years since he promoted for "2046". He was unaware of the secret birthday event and was surprised by all the gifts, cards, and even home-made traditional Korean food.
The biggest surprise was the huge rice cake made by his fans as the birthday cake in accord with the South Korean custom.
Originally, over one hundred people were going to take part in the event, but due to space limit of the venue, only 40 lucky ones could attend.
The Hong Kong star thanked his South Korean supporters and promised he will return soon to see them again.
The star welcomed his forty-sixth birthday on Friday.
