Two A-list Korean stars, actor Son Seung Hun and actress Kim Tae Hee, will arrive in Hanoi on January 6, to promote their TV drama "My Princess" to local fans.

According to an announcement on the Hallyu star Kim Tae Hee's web site as well as "My Princess's" official Facebook account this week, the couple will arrive at Noi Bai airport in the capital of Vietnam at 4 p.m. on January 6 and stay at the five-star Daewoo Hotel during their trip here before traveling to Hong Kong.

Son Seung Hun and Kim Tae Hee, who are lead actor and lead actress of "My Princess" broadcast by MBC, will have a short fan meeting and other activities to promote the series, Vnexpress newswire reported on Saturday.

Members of the two stars' fan club in Vietnam plan to make pictures, photographs, as well as a video clip to welcome the idols at both the airport and the hotel. The event's sponsor and organizer, Coway Co., has not yet revealed their detailed schedule.

"My Princess" is a story of an ordinary college student, Lee Seol, who finds out she's a princess and the great-granddaughter of the Joseon Dynasty's last Emperor, Emperor Sunjong.

The grandson of the Daehan Group, Park Hae-young, portrayed by Hun, is put in charge of educating Seol on proper etiquette. However, Hae-young is put in a precarious situation when he finds himself drawn to Seol, the girl who will take away his inheritance if the monarchy is restored.

Hee began her career in entertainment as a model and in television commercials. She rose to stardom via her portrayal of Han Yoori, the evil stepsister in the popular SBS TV series Stairway to Heaven.

Her other TV projects include the supernatural KBS series "Forbidden Love" and the SBS campus romance "Love Story in Harvard," and "Iris."

Hun, who started his career as a model in 1995, modeled for the jeans brand STORM, and began acting in sitcoms and TV dramas in 1996. He is noted for his roles in Korean dramas like "East of Eden," "Autumn in My Heart" (2000) and "Summer Scent."

Thanks to the TV drama "Autumn in My Heart," which was exported all over Asia, he is one of the most popular stars in Korea today, whose popularity even grew in other Asian countries, adding to the Hallyu wave.

After the Philippines and Japan, "My Princess" will be broadcast in Hong Kong and on Vietnam's SCTV17 channel in January.
