The crowds and cheering around Incheon International Airport were loud and in full force on February 14, but it wasn't a K-pop star who came to the arrival gate. Rather, it was talk show host Conan O'Brien.

When he announced his trip to Korea last week, we didn't really know what to expect. Would many Koreans know about the famed late night comedian?

As the photos below showed, the Koreans knew about him and cheered his every joke, dance, and move.

I also had a chance to interview the Korean Conan O'Brien fans the following day below.

Take a look at the photos and video interview below:

And here is the interview with Conan fans in Korea (yes, they do exist!) It's very surprising, since the show does not even show here on TV.

Conan leaves Korea this Friday on February 19th. According to Korean news sources, expect to see him as a cameo in a Korean drama, as well as on a Clueless Gamer for "Sudden Attack".
