Since wrapping Heirs last December Lee Min Ho has been nothing but busy dabbling with other activities in his entertainment career. Last week he held an encore concert in Seoul for his Korean fans, and by encore I mean it’s a continuation of his concert tour last May when he released his first mini-album. I actually thought some of his songs were cute in an inoffensive way, he’s not a good singer but neither is he terrible nor pretentious about it. Some of his songs probably would have fit in nicely with the Heirs OST actually. Pictures have been released of the encore concert and once again I’m cringing at the shiny suit or long coat look on him. My eyes hurt less after he changed into the leather jacket casual sunglasses look. After wrapping the encore Seoul concert Lee Min Ho jetted off to China for the not-so-secret rehearsal of the 2014 CCTV Lunar New Year Gala (China Central Television 中国中央电视台春节联欢晚会). All the major Chinese networks have their own Lunar New Year celebration programs but none is as widely watched as the original granddaddy that is the CCTV Lunar New Year Gala. It currently is watched by 700 million viewers and is in fact the single program with the largest audience of any entertainment show in the world. Lee Min Ho would be the first ever Korean entertainer on that show and he plans to sing the theme song from Meteor Garden the Taiwan version of Hana Yori Dango adaptation which has a connection since Lee Min Ho starred in Boys Before Flowers which is the K-drama adaptation of HanaDan. I’m not sure if Lee Min Ho is singing the Chinese language original version called 情非得已 “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” performed by Harlem Yu or the Korean version sung by singer Kim Yeon Woo. The full performance roster for the CCTV Gala hasn’t been revealed yet so the leak with Lee Min Ho’s participation is unofficial but true since his side has admitted it. Dude, if I had to perform knowing 700 million people will be watching my knees would have buckled and I would need to be carted off the stage. Good luck to Lee Min Ho!
