Actor Lee Min Ho recently froze up the streets of Hong Kong while on a trip for his advertisement filming.
On March 1st, a Chinese newspaper reported, “Lee Min Ho’s arrival in Hong Kong for his advertisement filming has paralyzed the streets of Hong Kong. His tall height and handsome looks were recognized by fans from a far distance, who all immediately gathered to catch a closer glimpse of the star.”
Reporters were met with a bit of a riff with the staff since they weren’t allowed to film the scene to avoid spoiling the actual CF.
Chinese netizens commented, “Lee Min Ho is so hot!” and “I hope he films a Chinese drama soon!”
