[News] Lee Minho offered private jet ride to fulfill Chinese schedule

Lee Minho will be the second Korean actor to be offered a private jet ride to China to fulflll schedules.

The actor currently busy filming movie “Gangnam Blues” would otherwise have a hard time promoting in China at this time and China’s second largest brewery company Tsingtao took this into account, deciding to send Lee Minho a private jet.

The private jet and event preparations alone would total over one million USD in expenses but, as using Lee Minho as a method of PR would bring an economic benefit and profit of over ten times that amount, this would be favorable for the company.

Lee Minho will be departing for Beijing from Gimpo Airport on the 15th and will be returning to Korea after attending the fanmeeting and promotional joint event in the early hours of the 16th.
