Actor Lee Jong-suk has successfully finished a monthslong Asian tour to meet some 21,000 international fans, his talent agency said Tuesday.
He visited the Araneta Coliseum in Manila on Sunday evening (local time) as part of his “Crank Up” fan meet-up tour that included visits to Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia.
Lee, who has a large following in the Philippines for the popularity of the ongoing South Korean TV show “While You Were Sleeping,” received an enthusiastic welcome in the country, according to A-Man Project.
The visit came weeks after the Korean star was held back for two days in Jakarta due to inept scheduling by organizers of the meet-up event there. He, however, pressed ahead with the event in Manila in order not to disappoint his fans there.
“I wonder why it took so long for me to come here. It’s great that the Philippines is the last (stop of the tour), and I think I’ll be able to return home with a good memory (about the country),” Lee told the fans attending the event.
