Hong Kong - The smile has vanished from Kim Soo Hyun's face as he continued on his promotional stops in Asia while his country grapples with a sunken ferry disaster that has left 139 people dead and 163 still missing.

At a Hong Kong event to promote a cosmetics brand yesterday, the South Korean star was expressionless throughout, only holding up his hand to greet fans.

The My Love From The Star heart-throb cracked a tiny smile only when talking about shooting The Thieves in Hong Kong in 2011.
