Lee Min Ho's management agency just announced that he will be releasing his first music album worldwide and kicking off a concert tour in May. The Korean Wave star, who rose to fame through his lead role as Gu Jun Pyo in the 2009 Korean drama Boys Over Flowers, has sung at fan meetings in the past, but never released any songs officially until now. The actor will begin his 10-city concert tour in Korea and continue to Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, and other countries from May to July. The agency also said that Lee Min Ho has received a lot of love from fans in South America, Europe, and the Middle East, so who knows what other concert locations might be announced!
The actor explained his motivation for releasing this special album. "My goal is to become an outstanding actor, being a singer is beyond my abilities. This album is a small present to thank my fans."
The album has been in the works for two years now, and is an answer to fans' numerous requests for the songs from his fan meetings to be put into an album. As if you needed another reason to be excited about a Lee Min Ho album, a portion of the proceeds from album sales will be donated to charity.
