[아시아경제 최은영 기자] Speaker Park Byeong-seok, who is visiting two Middle Eastern countries, met with Hollywood star Tom Cruise at a restaurant.
On the 11th (local time), National Assembly Speaker Park Byung-seok, who is visiting the Middle East, met with actor Tom Cruise in Abu Dhabi, the UAE, where he first visited.
Tom Cruise was staying in Abu Dhabi to film the movie’Mission Impossible 7′.
It was reported that Tom Cruise and Chairman Park had dinner at the same restaurant, and Tom Cruise, who heard the news, first asked for a meeting.
The restaurant manager asked, “Tom Cruise is here, but I want to greet you when I hear that there is a president of the Korean National Assembly”, and the chairman Park readily accepted.
Accordingly, Tom Cruise, who was having a meal on the second floor, came down to Chairman Park’s table on the first floor and greeted him.

When Chairman Park greeted him, “I am the President of the Republic of Korea,” Tom Cruise said, “I came here to film the Mission Impossible Desert scene. I love Korea so much and I wanted to say hello.”
“I went to Korea more than 20 times. I liked it since I was a kid.” He said, “I tried to go to Korea by filming a movie last year, but I couldn’t go because of Corona 19. I will definitely go back.”
When Chairman Park replied, “Please contact me when you come to Korea,” Tom Cruise nodded and responded.
Due to the unexpected’surprise meeting’ of the two people, customers gathered with cameras at once, and the restaurant became an instant commotion.
Meanwhile, Tom Cruise is a’Jihanpa’ actor who is friendly enough to be called’Friendly Uncle Tom’ in Korea. He has visited Korea several times to promote the film, and he has many domestic fans with his best manners.
Chairman Park is officially visiting the UAE and Bahrain from the 9th to the 17th.
