Kiwi actor Russell Crowe will be visiting Korea on Saturday for the first time.

The actor, film producer and musician is visiting Seoul for a four-day trip which will include a press conference for his upcoming movie, “The Water Diviner.”

“I’m off to South Korea on Saturday,” Crowe tweeted. “My first time ― who’s got the intel on Seoul?” he wrote.

“I wonder if anyone in South Korea knows I’m coming,” he tweeted.

Starring and directed by Crow, the film is based on a story of an Australian farmer who travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli during World War I in search of his three missing sons.

Crowe will be participating in three events on Jan. 19: A press conference at the Ritz-Carlton hotel at 11 a.m., and a Red Carpet Event at Lotte Cinema Konkuk at 7 p.m. and a live-chat at CGV Apgujeong at 9:30.

The Red Carpet Event is an hour-long session consisting of a photo session in the lobby of the movie theater along with a fan meeting, according to Nam Yoon-jeong of Prain TPC, a celebrity PR group and organizer of the Crowe’s events in Seoul.

After a movie showing at CGV Apgujeong, Crowe is to hold another fan meeting that will be broadcast in 17 CGV’s nationwide, including Gangbyeon, Guro, Mokdong, Yeongdeungpo, Yongsan, Wangshimni, Daejeon, Gwangju, Daegu, and Cheonan Pentaport.

The Water Diviner will be released in Korean theatres on January 29.
