From November 15th up until the 18th, actor Lee Min Ho visited the Philippines for a special, four day long promotional event.
The actor’s agency stated that Lee Min Ho arrived on November 15t in Manila, and took part in many interviews with the local media outlets. He then held a two day event at the Araneta Coliseum to promote his modeling brand ‘Bench.’
Tens of thousands of fans came to catch sight of the star at the coliseum and it was mentioned that several thousands were also waiting outside. The next day, where the actor is to be filming a CF and hosting a fan-sign at a ‘Bench’ store, there was an unexpected crowd of fans that eventually led to paralyzing the area’s traffic.
A Korean that resides in the Philippines commented, “Out of all of the foreign celebrities visiting the Philippines, Lee Min Ho has received the greatest response thus far. His dramas like ‘Boys over Flowers,’ ‘Personal Taste,’ and ‘City Hunter,’ as well as ‘Faith,’ which will begin airing next month, has added to his growing popularity. A popular Filipino artist named Sabrina released a Tagalog remake of his ‘Personal Taste’ OST titled ‘Saranghae‘, and it, too, has been earning a great response.”
Many Filipino media outlets have been treating Lee Min Ho with top star reports, giving information on his daily activities and writing articles with grand titles such as, “Manila falls in love with Lee Min Ho” and “Korea’s superstar sweeps the nation.”
Lee Min Ho’s concert’s host expressed, “I had the best day of my life thanks to Lee Min Ho. His humbleness, warmth, and genuine kindness touched the hearts of the Philippines. Everywhere he went, he brought with him a warm energy, causing people to call him Lee Min Hot. He’s definitely at the top of his fame.”
The actor’s next stop is Yokohama, Japan, next month for another fan meet and is he is also currently working out love calls from America, Indonesia, Thailand, China, and more.
