Always by LEE MIN HO marks the actor’s major comeback in the music scene after taking a break for two years. The upcoming album is considered to be Lee Min Ho’s gift for his loyal fans who have been supporting him over the past 10 years. It’ll also serve as a commemoration of all the good memories he shared with his fans since his debut in 2006.
The album is scheduled to be released in March and is also expected to do well on various music charts not only in South Korea but in other countries as well. Despite not being able to solely focus on promoting his album personally, it is worth noting that Lee Min Ho still manages to make a name for himself as a musician even in the international music scene. In fact, MYM admitted that his ability to make a successful album is something “rare.”
“It is rare to see an actor release an album worldwide while not actively promoting and performing it. It is only possible because of his global popularity.”

The Boys Over Flowers star is not new to making it big in the music scene. It can be recalled that his previous albums also did well on various international music charts. Lee Min Ho’s first mini album, My Everything, landed on the top spot on Japan’s Oricon daily album while his track “Song For You” dominated Taiwan’s iTunes.
Aside from his upcoming album, Lee Min Ho is also expected to do a series of worldwide concert tours just in time before he enlists in the military. According to a report, the City Hunter actor already hinted about his plans to hold a global tour and personally meet his fans overseas.
“The global tour is a project I’ve continued to do. I sang a total of 12 songs on stage [for the tour]. If it was me in the past, that’s something I could never have imagined doing. Going on stage and being together with fans is a happy memory.”
