Actor Lee Min Ho solidified his determination before his new drama Faith starts airing. In SBS TV’s new drama series Faith, which starts airing on August 13, Lee plays the role of the general Choi Young. Lee says, “Because I’ve done my best for last three months, I’ll just leave the rest to God’s will.” He also says thanks to his fans by saying, “Koreans live on rice, but I live on my fans.” On August 9, to the place where a production report conference of Faith was held, Lee’s fans from 17 countries sent fifteen tons of rice. In addition, many fans are leaving cheering and encouraging messages on the official website of the series. Some messages have been read by over 50,000 people. Over 1,000 Chinese fans also donated 84,000 yuans (about 15 million won) to UNICEF, wishing the series success. Such enthusiastic responses resulted from Lee’s constant communication with his fans on such social networking sites as Twitter, Facebook, and Weibo. Lee is currently having over 12 million friends online. It’s the largest number for all Korean celebrities, athletes, and entrepreneurs. A spokesperson for Lee says, “On the day he attended a production report conference of Faith, he complied with his fans’ request for his autographs and photo shoots with pleasure even after five hours of interview. Even if he’s extremely tired, he always does his best and tries to do many things for his fans. He also often tells how he is doing on his social networking accounts and communicate with his fans.” Source: Starnews
