K-League Takes All-Star Game to Hanoi in Marketing Push

In any major sport, the All-Star Game is a highlight of the season, as the spirit of competition eases, allowing fans and players alike to enjoy a carnival atmosphere.

This year, the K-League will hold its All-Star Game in Vietnam. A team of 18 league stars will face the Vietnamese U-23 national team in Hanoi on Saturday. The first K-League All-Star Game to be held overseas, the move is part of the league's efforts to offset its waning popularity at home.

As in other Southeast Asian countries, football is the most popular sport in Vietnam, and interest is high in the major Asian leagues as well as the European ones.

When Kim Eun-sook recently announced her latest project, "Mr. Sunshine", she added that she already had an actor in mind for the lead role. She probably had some inkling at the time that the latest in a long line of enviable leading men would be Lee Byung-hun. Set in the early 1900s, "Mr. Sunshine" tells the story of a star-crossed love between a common soldier in the resistance movement against the Japanese occupation and an aristocrat's daughter.
