The tour will last until July and each concert will be in the hybrid format of a talk show and live music. Lee Min Ho commented on the release of his album, “My only goal is to become a great actor and singing is not my thing. I just prepared this to thank my fans and give something back to them after receiving so much love and support from them. I hope to make a come back with a good script sometime soon. I’m always thankful to have all of your love and support.”
