An unscheduled’surprise meeting’ between National Assembly Speaker Park Byeong-seok and Hollywood star Tom Cruise took place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the 11th (local time). Chairman Park on a Middle East tour and Tom Cruise, who is staying in Abu Dhabi for the filming of the movie’Mission Impossible 7′, are having dinner at the same restaurant.

While having dinner at a restaurant in Abu Dhabi that afternoon, Chairman Park met with Tom Cruise, who just visited the restaurant, and had a short conversation about five minutes. This meeting came when Tom Cruise, who visited the same restaurant, proposed a meeting to Chairman Park through the restaurant.

The restaurant manager asked the tour team’s intention, saying, “I want to greet you after hearing that Tom Cruise is here and the Korean National Assembly president is there,” and Chairman Park readily accepted this.

Tom Cruise met with Chairman Park and said, “I love Korea very much (heard of being in a restaurant) and I came to say hello. “I have been fond of (Korea) since I was a child.” “I have been to Korea more than 20 times. Last year, I tried to go to Korea to shoot a movie, but I couldn’t go because of Corona 19. I really want to go again.”

Chairman Park introduced himself to Tom Cruise as “the chairman of the Republic of Korea” and then said, “Please contact me when you come to Korea,” and Tom Cruise responded. Tom Cruise also readily responded to the photo shoot with Chairman Park. Tom Cruise also took pictures with the restaurant guests flocking to see him, making a bright face all the time.

Chairman Park is conducting an official visit to the UAE and Bahrain from the 9th to the 17th.
