Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

..Not quite, but it's not out of the question now!
"The visit of a top star and director will contribute to promoting Busan’s important status in Asia for cinema. The city has decided to award the honorary citizenship to Mr. Cruise in recognition to his contribution to the industry."
He is a BIG contributor and Busan also happens to be home to Asia's largest film festival, but this will mark the first time the city will host a red carpet premiere for a foreign movie not apart of the festival.
That does sound pretty major!
Korean fans love Tom so much that they call him "friendly Uncle Tom"…
..and we can just imagine all the new friends he'll make.
