South Korean actor Kim Soo-hyun has been chosen to appear on the cover of four Asian magazines to be issued in late May and early June.

The 27-year-old heartthrob went for a photo shoot in Marrakech, Morocco, for the May-June issues of Marie Claire’s Taiwanese edition, ELLE MEN’s Hong Kong edition, Me’s Hong Kong edition, and Femina’s Chinese edition.

The photo shoot, sponsored by high-end Italian fashion label Gucci, came as part of the “Kim Soo-hyun Asia Project,” in which five Asian fashion magazines took part.

During the interview conducted after the photo shoot, Kim talked about his life since the hit drama “My Love from the Star” ended.

“Since the drama came to a close, I have been able to get to know what it means to be happy by communicating with fans while touring Asia,” Kim was quoted as saying.

Kim’s fan base has grown in Asia with the success of “My Love from the Star,” in which he played an alien who arrives in Korea by travelling through time from hundreds of years ago and falls in love with a modern-day actress, played by Jun Ji-hyun.
