Actor Kim Soo Hyun has been receiving a new wave of fangirls after his romantic stunt on KBS2TV’s “Dream High“. It’s even led to a new nickname for the star – “Sunflower Soo Hyun.”
On the January 17th episode of “Dream High”, Song Sam Dong (Kim Soo Hyun) saved Hyemi (miss A’s Suzy) from getting hit by a falling flower pot by pushing her out of the way. Unfortunately, he got struck in her stead.
The romantic (if not possibly life-threatening) gestures didn’t end there.
Song Sam Dong got into a fight with Jingook (2PM’s Taecyeon) in order to defend Hyemi, who got set up to look like she stole something. Song Sam Dong even had eggs thrown at him.
Although he was strengthened by his love, the indignities this knight-in-shining-armor had to endure was almost too much for fans to bear. Netizens wrote, “His eyes when he said he would protect her next time was the best!” “I’m in love with Kim Soo Hyun,” and “Song Sam Dong will replace Juwon’s place.”
