South Korean actor Lee Min-ho, who is popular at home and in China, will begin a global tour to meet with his fans in September, his management agency said Monday.

Lee has annually toured around Asian countries to meet his foreign fans since the success of the KBS 2 channel's soap series "Boys Before Flowers" in 2009. This year, he plans to go to the Americas, Starhaus Entertainment said.

The tour titled "RE:minho" will begin in Seoul and take him to Beijing, Tokyo and other major cities, the agency said, adding that detailed itineraries will be announced later on the agency's website.

"Re:minho," meaning "a new start," will reveal the 27-year-old star's fresh and diverse aspects, it said.

Last year, tickets for Lee's fan festivals in eight Asian cities were all sold out, drawing some 52,000 fans in total.

He is currently shooting "Gangnam Blues," a Korean noir action film directed by Yoo Ha and also starring Kim Rae-won. Most recently, he captivated fans at home and in China for his lead role in the SBS TV series "The Heirs." (Yonhap)
