Lee’s last visit to the Philippines was in 2018 for a fan meeting called “Lee Jong Suk Fan Meeting Tour Crank Up in Manila, with his “While You Were Sleeping” co-star.

“I really felt your energy,” he said, adding that he rested well after arriving in Manila and exercised to prepare for the fan meeting.
“First of all, I feel sorry for my Filipino fans who waited for me [to come back] as it’s been five years since we last saw each other,” he added.
Tasting Filipino food
Lee Jong-suk and Shin Jae-ha played a game of tasting Filipino food during the fan meet. Shin fed a blindfolded Lee Filipino food, and he tried to guess its equivalent Korean dish.
He tried pansit, which is equivalent to Korea’s japchae; Choco Mallows, which tasted like Choco Pie in Korea; and espasol. Shin Jae-ha also had a shot of Ginebra San Miguel gin, which tasted like Korea’s soju, he said. – WhatALife!/Jayve
