…Earlier, T-ara’s Eunjung visited Lombok, Indonesia, to film MBC We Got Married. Also because of the request of a fan, who’s happened to be a daughter of a local senior officer, she received a special treatment throughout the schedule as well. After hearing the news about the filming, the officer searched the hotel Eunjung was staying in then returned after promising Eunjung’s team that there wouldn’t be any inconvenience throughout the schedule. After that, she kept receiving special services nonstop.
The police officers dressed in uniform even conducted a traffic control on a one-way road from the hotel to Lombok airport for Eunjung’s team departure. Besides to avoid any accidents due to the number of flocking fans, they also did that for the sake of Eunjung’s team’s convenience. In particular, there were even some fans who chased after Eunjung’s team’s vehicle that day with their motorcycles and cars along the road.
An official said “Even in Indonesia, the K-POP fever is blowing fiercely recently”. “Idol groups who show great stage performances gain particularly higher popularity than actors”, he added. Another official of a local travel agency said “Not only Super Junior, B2ST, T-Ara and other groups are also popular”. “Korean executives in some companies also often give the local female employees concert tickets gift for insentives, everyone was happy”, he said.
