Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon will begin a new photograph project throughout Asia, according to his agency KEYEAST on Friday.
KEYEAST announced in a press release that Bae, known for calling his fans his 'family,' will begin an event titled "Family Photo Project-We're a family" where Bae will take 'family photos' with his fans, starting in Korea and into Japan and other countries in Asia.
Bae, who is known for calling his fans as 'family,' was quoted as saying in the press release, "I have always wanted to take a family picture because you need to have one when you are part of a family."
The date of which Bae will shoot his first family picture in Korea has yet to be announced.
Bae, 37, rose to mega-stardom in Korea and throughout Asia with the 2002 hit KBS TV series "Winter Sonata."
He has been actively promoting Korean culture in Asia, publishing a photo essay titled "Discovering the Beauty of Korea" last year that has been sold in Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese and Chinese as well as being made into a television documentary.
Bae is currently preparing for the first series of the "Miso Project," a philanthropy project to help the children in Cambodia and the Philippines, titled "Message! to Asia" with Kim Hyun-joong and Hwanhee.
