Korea Buzz – Lee Min Ho’s Etude House Singapore Promo Trip

(Translated from 스포츠조선) Lee Min Ho’s Etude House promotion has continued from Taiwan-Singapore-Malaysia.

After ending the promo trip on 23th October in Taiwan, Lee Min Ho has arrived in Singapore on 24th October noon. It was a hectic breatheless schedule.

After arriving at 1pm, he headed to the hotel from the airport and had a press conference at 2:30pm for 1 hour duration inside a hall at Raffles hotel.

At around 3:40pm, he headed for the fanmeeting session at Etude House outlet located at Plaza Singapura, a shopping mall located at central Singapore. But as fans started to surround outside Etude House store from 2pm, there were around 3000 fans in the mall and the situation became chaotic. Over 30 security personnel were there to control the situation. At 4pm, the organizer has decided to call off the fanmeeting promotional event due to safety and security reasons. They said, “If Lee Min Ho was to appear, there may be inevitable risk of accidents happen.” When the notification of cancellation of event was announced, Etude House gave away around 2000 file folders printed with Lee Min Ho’s image and facial cottons in way of apology to appease the disappointed fans.

At 5pm, Lee Min Ho headed to a famous club, St James Power Station, to have his private fan sign event. After his official schedule ended at 7pm, he headed to a famous Korean restaurant to have his dinner. Only his manager, stylist and staff were inside the dining room. There were 2 security personnel on guard outside the room and only 2 restaurant staff were allowed in.

They have spent 2 hours inside the dining room and “Scissors, Paper, Stone” game sounds and laughters were heard non-stop. The restaurant person-in-charge said, “They were playing “Scissors, Paper, Stone” game and the loser will need to eat lettuces with mustard sauce as penalty.”
