Sam Oh was quite the host, as she was able to keep her cool for most times, and was very engaging and prompt with her questions for Lee Minho. 

Q and A with Lee Min Ho


We learned quite a lot about our resident good guy with the fast talk portion of the night. Below are some snippets of the night:

Lee Min Ho is a night owl. He loves to give presents more instead of getting them, and his alcohol torelance is not that high. He prefers the beach instead of pools, winters instead of summer and would like to live in the countryside instead of the city. 

Lee Min Ho's preferred SMDC amenities is a pool, and for views, he would like a sunset view. He mentions that he does not have to wake up early to appreciate it. Which would coincide with his whole night owl persona. He also kept us updated with his new project, which will be quite the sci fi story. 

The night ends with Lee Min Ho reading from the post it wall filled with messages from fans and patrons in the hall. One of his fans posted a graduation photo of her along with her message and our good guy was definitely intrigued. He asked for the lady to come on stage with him for a selfie. Lee Minho is such a good guy!

Lee Min Ho's parting words for the night was "I'm so grateful. I would like to thank each and every one of you for spending your precious Sunday with me. I hope in the future for my future projects we get to meet a lot and see each other right away. Thank you very much."

Big thank you to SMDC for letting us cover Lee Min Ho's tour in Manila. It's super fun to see him enjoy the intimate dinner and program with not just SMDC patrons, but his fans who have loved him for years.  Can't wait to see him in new projects which he teased a bit in the program.

So, if you've ever dreamed of living in the lap of luxury, SMDC's residences, endorsed by the dashing Lee Minho, are your ticket to an opulent lifestyle. Step into a world where style meets sustainability, and embrace a future of endless possibilities.
