Dubbed as “TikTok Stage Connect — Seon-ho’s Favorite”, the online fan meet will allow attendees to listen to behind-the-scenes stories of “Start-Up”, participate in a telepathy game to guess Seon Ho’s preferences, and watch him discover his fans’ wishes.

“As a short-form video app with a mission to spread creativity and bring joy, we hope to continue to provide opportunities for global fans and artists to connect on the platform. “Kim Seon Ho has certainly captured the hearts of many and brought happiness through his TV dramas, and we look forward to jointly hosting this online meet-up with SALT Entertainment,” said TikTok Philippines User and Content Operations Manager John Castro in a press statement.

“We sincerely appreciate the attention and support that fans have given to Kim Seon Ho in 2020. To relieve the sadness of not being able to meet in person due to COVID-19 and show appreciation for all the support, we have prepared the first global online fan meetup. We ask for your huge support and active participation as we work hard to organize the virtual event,” said SALT Entertainment.
