The faith in humanity gets restored when a reel life hero becomes a real life hero and the same happened when the South Korean actor and singer Kim Hyun-joong saved the life of a person at a Japanese restaurant.

According to the entertainment portal AllKpop, the 34-year-old singer-songwriter saved the life of a Japanese restaurant chef when he fell unconscious. The incident took place on August 24 but it is only now that the news has started doing the rounds on the internet. The 'Boy Over Flowers' actor was quick to act when he saw people gathered around a person who was lying on the floor of the restaurant. As reported by the publication, Kim Hyun-joong pulled the chef’s head back and unbuttoned his shirt to allow better airflow.

According to AllKpop, the restaurant manager said, "The workers were all young students so they did not know how to manage the situation but Mr Kim Hyun Joong lead the situation and was able to save a precious life. We didn't even have a chance to thank him because we were all so taken aback."

Kim Hyun-joong, who is also a member of the boy band SS501, enjoys a huge fan base in the country and therefore, his ardent fans took to Twitter to share his good deed. One fan said, "Kim hyun  joong is a HERO he did not hesitate to help to others im very proud as a fun #KimHyunJoong."



 

Reacting on the incident, another fan tweeted, "'Life' over the K-flower Kim Hyun-joong left after first aid to the fallen chef. The agency's report confirmed that the person who gave first aid to the unconscious chef until 119 rescue workers came was singer Kim Hyun-joong, the main character of the drama 'Boys Over Flowers'."



 

Praising the singer’s good deed, a fan said, "During these times when people won't even go near another person due to covid paranoia, Kim Hyun Joong didn't even hesitate to give that chef first aid. Truly a remarkable deed! So proud of him!"



 

One Twitter user stated, "I watched and re-watched the CCTV footage in the resto & I realized, our Dearest One is undoubtedly brilliant! He isn't just a mere Leader of the band, BUT a calm, focused efficient & effective Leader of the CODE BLUE team! Your gufts are epic & unique #KIMHYUNJOONG!."



 

The actor stayed with the chef and tried to regain his consciousness until the paramedics arrived on the scene. Kim Hyun-joong reportedly told the restaurant workers to call 119,  which is Korea's emergency phone number.
