He first gained popularity in the Philippines because of Boys Over Flowers. Many fans in the Philippines were introduced to Korean media through Lee Min Ho's dramas and movies. The Philippines Press claims that Lee Min Ho's popularity is due to "his unchanging manners for many years despite being on top." They added, “We learn the Korean language, food, fashion and culture through Lee Min Ho’s dramas.” Lee Min Ho’s agency stated, “Although people from various nationalities gather each time, they speak to Lee Min Ho in Korean in order to express their affection.
