Fans fight to get the first Kim Soo Hyun phone in China
When we first heard that a Kim Soo Hyun phone was being developed, it sounded like an April Fools joke, but it is no joke, because the phone is real and it has been released in China. Take a look at the "Zuk Kim Soo Hyun Star Phone" and its features. Also watch the video where the star of My Love From Another Star greeted excited fans at the phone's release.
The special Kim Soo Hyun phone comes in limited and regular editions. It was developed as a joint collaboration between KeyEast Entertainment and Chinese tech firm Zuk.
The phone features Kim Soo Hyun's voice greetings, ringtones, photos, and special apps to track activities about fans' favorite alien from another star. The case is also heat-treated with a permanent Kim Soo Hyun's signature. The limited edition is estimated at around US$308, and it was meant to be available for pre-order until April 8. It was sold out within 10 minutes within release.
Fans have been promised a second pre-order release as soon as possible. Meanwhile, it's been reported that some devoted fans are offering triple the retail price to get their hands on the phone.
To promote the new phone, Kim Soo Hyun appeared at the Kim Soo Hyun Day event on March 24 for the Zuk Kim Soo Hyun Star Phone's official release.
All Kim Soo Hyun had to say was, "Hello everyone, I am Kim Soo Hyun," and the crowd erupted into cheers and screams for the Hallyu star.
