Global star Lee Min Ho continues to be popular worldwide.
It has been revealed that the popular actor has become the new spokesperson for Luwak White Koffie which is a product from Indonesian coffee brand Java Prima Abadi. Indonesian fans will be able to see more of him through ads on television.
Apparently, the brand is the first to create their particular type of white coffee in Indonesia. This white coffee is created from beans that have not been roasted.
Indonesia is famous for being one of the world’s largest producers of coffee and for “Kopi Luwak.” Kopi Luwak is a coffee that is processed by Asian palm civets. The animals eat ripe coffee cherries and digestion removes the outer layers of the fruit. Then the coffee beans are collected from their feces and washed. Kopi Luwak is very rare and expensive.
No doubt Lee Min Ho’s international appeal will aid in raising awareness and popularity for the brand.
Meanwhile, he has completed filming commercials for the brand in popular Korean tourist spots such as Namsan, the Han River, and Bukchon Hanok Village.
Actress Ku Hye-sun, who shot to fame in the hit television series “Boys over Flowers,” showed off her friendship with her stylist Seo Yoon, as she modeled for her new stylebook free of charge.

In the photo spread, the starlet sports beautiful white wedding gowns with natural hair. She carries a classic bouquet and wears a beaded headband to add to her youthful image.
“(Ku) has fair skin, so we tried to accentuate her natural features,” said the stylist, adding that she did her hair win a natural-looking style.
Meanwhile, the actress has recently been cast as a female lead in an upcoming Chinese drama.

Lee Min-ho, the South N Seoul Tower, and Mungyeong Saejae Provincial Park have been chosen as “Korean Tourism Stars”. The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism chose 14 regions and companies for 11 categories of the Korean Tourism Stars.
It chose Lee Min-ho as the person of merit for starring in the tourism promotional videos that were produced for the recovering of MERS this year.

Starhaus Entertainment is investigating rampant rumors centered on an alleged Shanghai concert starring Lee Min Ho. Representatives for the “Gangnam 1970” star came forth about the advertised concert after widespread reports spread that the 28-year-old actor would appear at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai.
December 11, the agency provided a statement to Sports Donga, addressing the event, which was advertised for February 27, 2016.
“[We will] take relevant measures for the touted Shanghai show,” said a spokesperson for Starhaus. “While the Shanghai concert that was [reportedly] offered to Lee is being reviewed, the one [organizer] has never even been in contact.”
While Lee has not actively pursued a music career, his live performances remain a huge draw, particularly within China. In 2014, he brought his RE:MINHO tour to Shanghai and Guangzhou.
According to statistics released by mainland China’s Cultural Industry Research Center, the concerts were attended by 7,000 and 10,000 fans, retrospectively.
Speculation regarding a potential Chinese concert follow the frenetic ticket sales for the upcoming “talk” concert, which instantaneously sold out as 3,000 fans snagged the opportunity to see the pan-Asian phenom.
While the Shanghai show has been refuted as a rumor, the “Boys Over Flowers” star will take the stage for domestic audiences at the Grand Peace Palace on January 16.
Meanwhile, Lee continues to film his upcoming Korean-Chinese blockbuster, “Bounty Hunters.” He recently released the album, “The Day,” which dedicated to his devoted audience, who are known as Minoz.
