Taipei, April 20 (CNA) Local pop group F4, which has been named as representative of Taiwan's tourist industry this year, has attracted nearly 5,000 fans from Japan and Korea hoping to meet their idols April 22 at National Taiwan University's sports center, an official of the Tourism Bureau said Friday.

The fans will create about NT$100 million-worth of sightseeing revenue for Taiwan, according to a bureau estimate.

F4 will perform and interact with their fans, the official said, adding that the bureau has provided a prize of another meeting tour with F4 to attract more tourists.

Quoting statistics compiled by the bureau, the official said Japanese tourists made 1.16 million visits to Taiwan and Koreans made 196,260 visits. The bureau hopes to attract more visitors from these two countries using the attraction of F4 as a draw.

The bureau will air F4's meeting with fans via the Internet at www.im.tv/myvlog/JVKVtaiwan.
