One of Hollywood’s most iconic leading men, Tom Cruise, is in Korea to promote his latest movie Top Gun: Maverick.

According to Newsis, Tom Cruise engaged with his fans and even conversed with one of his fans for a long time. The news outlet reports that the actor even asked security to step aside so that he could take photos with his fans. It is reported that only after Tom Cruises’ ride started moving did he get into the car.
Tom Cruise will be in Korea until June 20. The movie star will be present at a red carpet event for the movie at the Jamsil Lotte Tower on June 19 and a press conference held at the Lotte Hotel World Grand Ballroom.
