A Special Day with Lee Min Ho

It’s been almost a week since I went to the “Special Day with Minoz”, a fan meeting set up by Lee Min Ho’s fan club. I went there just for fun, since I’m not really a fan – I haven’t even seen a full drama starring Lee Min Ho. I also haven’t finish watching “Boys Over Flowers” – stuck in episode 2. That’s because I really enjoyed “Hana Yori Dango” and I don’t want any disappointment in another version.

Lee Min Ho’s fan meeting was held at the Grand Peace Palace of Kyunghee University. The university is about 3 subway stations and a village bus ride from where I live so it was pretty convenient to commute. However, it was really hot last Sunday afternoon and the road to the Grand Peace Palace from the university gate was steep.

The tickets were not sold out, unlike the first fan meeting last year. In fact, they were still selling tickets at the venue. I was on the second floor and there were still a lot of empty seats even when the show has started.

I got to the venue at about 2:55PM. The program was supposed to start at 3PM. It was a very rare occasion that a Korean show started late, but he had a mini press conference.

As expected, photography was not allowed. There were a number of MIBs (men in black) scattered at the venue who were tasked to stop those who are taking photographs or videos.

I got to take a picture of the stage before the show actually began.

The girl group “See Ya” sang a song from the OST of Lee Min Ho’s drama with Son Ye Jin. They showed several clips of Lee Min Ho’s fans greeting him “Happy Birthday” and I noticed that a few of them were of his fans from the Philippines, with the Jose Rizal statue and a Fort Santiago background.

Lee Min Ho sang an English song from his fans. Sorry I don’t know the title of the song since it wasn’t by my favorite band, DMB. 🙂 After that, the emcee came out and introduced two guests: Jung Sung Hwa and a member of the group 2AM. JSH was so funny that he brought the house down. The group 2AM minus one member sang two songs for the audience.

I enjoyed the special numbers by two of his fans, who both came from the southern provinces of Korea. They sent UCCs of their special birthday greeting for Min Ho and got a call to appear at the show. The first girl hugged her favorite actor several times! They also randomly chose three attendees who were asked to be on stage with Min Ho. One of them played “rock scissors paper” with him and another one called her husband who talked lengthily with Min Ho. Each of them received the “Minomi” doll.

The emcee showed Lee Min Ho some of the presents that his fans gave him, including a box of various food stuff (kim, instant noodles, coffee), clothes, a portable closet and I wouldn’t wonder if they also gave him all clad copper core kitchen ware.

Jeong Il Woo and Kim Bum were also there to greet Min Ho. Joe Cheng, the Taiwanese actor of “It Started With a Kiss” presented Min Ho with Oolong tea and a special wine. The last guest was Youn Ha who sang the song from the Personal Preference OST. I remember going to the toilet that time 🙂 When I came back, Min Ho was already saying goodbye to his fans and then he read a letter that he wrote.

All in all, it was fun. I didn’t stay after Min Ho left the stage. I went downstairs and received a desktop calendar and a Minoz Fan Club card.

    I’m a big fan of Lee Min-Ho. For his good acting abilities and great looks, too. His leading ladies in the the two TV drama series (BOF and PP) are awesome, too. I hope I can get a copy of his calendar! Thanks.
