The popular American late night TV host, Conan O’Brien is in Korea. Conan arrived in Korea to a rancorous welcome at the Incheon Airport near the capital Seoul, on Valentines Day, February 14. On the 3rd day of his 5-day visit, Conan was seeing leaving the JYP Entertainment building. But, why!?
Conan O’Brien decided to visit South Korea after receiving a care package from a Korean fan named Sunny Lee. Instead of studying for her college entrance exam, Sunny put together a huge box of Korean snacks and included a letter. Conan decide to go all the way to Korea to thank her, personally, saying “ladies and gentlemen, here is my motto—and I want this to get out all around the world—if you send me free snacks from your country, I will travel there in person to thank you. That’s what I do.”
Upon arriving in Korea, Conan was greeting at the airport by a throng of fans who surrounded the American TV host, holding banners and taking pictures with him.
So far, Conan has been having a great time in Korea, along with Walking Dead-Star, Korean-American Steve Yeun. Conan has visited the DMZ overlooking North Korea, bought a pet octopus in an open air fish market he called Samuel, he made a cameo appearance in a K-drama called “Happy Ending One More Time,” learned taekwondo, and had a fan-meet that ended early much to the chagrin of the fans in attendance. The fan meet was supposed to last for an hour and a half, but ended after just 30 minutes.
Conan has said on his to-do list for his visit to Korea, is meet Psy, and join a K-pop group. This probably explains his presence at the JYP Entertainment building in Gangnam on Wednesday, February 17. Conan had a scheduled meeting with the entertainment agency’s founder and main producer, Park Jin-Young.
