Lee Jae-wook steals fans’ hearts at the Manila leg of his first-ever fan meet

Korean star Lee Jae-wook had his first visit to the Philippines for the Manila leg of his fan meet.

Lee Jae-wook fanmeet

He revealed in an intimate press conference last March 10 that he had prospects to visit the country. Lee was looking forward to meeting fans whom he had very high praises for his Filipino fans saying that they “are passionate, but also well-mannered.”

The hallyu star is very well known for his role as Jang Uk in “Alchemy of Souls.” He didn’t think that the series would reach this level of recognition but through this show, he is able to go on tours.

Lee has shared one fun fact about himself that not a lot people know about and that is the need to sweat, whether it’s going to a spa or going for a run before he does his interviews.

On the day of the main event, ‘First’ held last March 11 at the New Frontier Theater received outpouring support from his Filipino fans. The show started with a song number from Lee singing “Every Day, Every Moment”.

Throughout the fan meet, he mentioned more fun facts about himself like cooking sugar filled meals and that he would rather order food than cook it himself.

He also gave advice to fans who sent in their questions such as how to deal with burnout and having an unfulfilled social life.

The fun didn’t stop there as some of the fans were chosen to play games with the actor and kept smiling throughout the entire games even though he kept on losing.

To end the night, Lee serenaded the fans once again and said a little message to his fans saying that he would come back to the Philippines if his fans would want to see him more. He thanked his fans for coming to his fan meet.

The Lee Jae-wook Fancon has been presented by Wilbros Live.
