Korean actor Park Hae-jin is having his face immortalised on Chinese stamps.

The 32-year-old heartthrob, who has starred in "Cheese in the Trap" and SBS Korea’s own "My Love from the Star" and "Doctor Stranger," will appear on a series of stamps, pre-paid phone cards, and commemorative coins honouring his popularity in the country.

They will be rolled out by China Post next month as part of the "Dream China" project that pays tribute to the 100 most influential people in Chinese culture.

Collectors (or people who still mail letters) will be able to purchase the stamp for 0.80 yuan which is around 16 Australian cents. And mega-fans can pick up a limited edition set for the much more hefty price of 698 yuan or AU$139.

Park is the first South Korean actor to feature on Chinese stamps after boy band Super Junior-M made a brief appearance for charity stamps back in 2008.
