Lee Min Ho feels the love and makes new promise in the Philippines
Lee Min Ho visited the Philippines to promote for the Bench brand recently. It was his fifth visit to the beautiful country of many islands, and his crowd only seemed to get even larger. The Hallyu star also took a rare vacation there. Check out these impressive photos and find out what Lee Min Ho promised to his adoring fans.
The handsome star was in the Philippines for the 5th time, and Filipino fans couldn't be happier. Although the Bench brand has signed endorsements with many international stars, Lee Min Ho has proved to be the most popular star for the famous clothing line ever since he signed on in 2012. Lee Min Ho first gained popularity with Filipino fans with his role in the now iconic romance drama Boys Over Flowers.
He visited both the capital city Manila on April 2 and then Cebu on April 3, in events promoted as "Be My Yeobo" Benchsetter Fun Meet. The "Be My Honey" slogan proved to be ingenious and attracted many thousands of fans at the events.
Just check out these enormous crowds:
