HIGHLIGHTS OF KIM SOO HYUN'S FANMEET

Sam Oh, who served as the event's host, took to Instagram to share some of the highlights and "kalurky moments" of the event.

The radio/TV host wrote, "There were so many kalurky moments in this fun meet like when the guy dropped the pizza Soo-hyun was supposed to taste (I died. And then died some more when he ate it anyway), when he initiated close contact with fans when it wasn’t on the script and when he cried after watching the video his fans made for him. What a guy. And what a comeback, Bench! [emoji]"
