Lee Min-ki prepares for his Japan Fanmeeting ’08
(I thought of riffing on Lee Min-ki’s bird’s-nest coif here, but somehow he makes it work as edgy rather than silly.)
On November 19 and 20, Lee Min-ki (Mixed-up Investigative Agency) will be meeting his Japanese fans once more for his Lee Min-ki Japan Fanmeeting ’08 (this is second such event; his first Japanese fanmeeting took place last November). The event on the 19th will be held in Osaka, while the one on the 20th takes place in Tokyo.
Demand was so high that tickets to both events sold out within an hour of going on sale, leaving unlucky fans requesting additional events. Each event will accommodate 1,500 fans.
Lee Min-ki gained a large number of his Japanese fans through his roles in 2006’s Dal Ja’s Spring and 2005’s Really Really Like You. His latest movie, Romantic Island, co-starred his Really Really Like You castmate Eugene, as well as Lee Seon-kyun (Coffee Prince), and will open on Christmas Eve. Meanwhile, his current project is the film Haeundae [해운대] with Ha Ji-won and Seol Kyung-ku. (Based on the cast alone, that movie ought to showcase a more serious actorly side to Lee Min-ki.)
