Love, Joy, And Strip Of Memories Shared By Lee Jong Suk At His “Crank Up” Fan Meeting In Manila

By abbyinhallyuland | November 19, 2018



We are not shy to admit that the date night with Lee Jong Suk on November 18 at the Araneta Coliseum really made all those drama reviews we wrote oh-so worth it.


As the last stop for his Crank Up tour, the actor made sure that his fans will bring home a bucket full of happy memories as he also enjoyed the warm welcome he received from his supporters in the Philippines.

We lost track on how many times the deafening cheers and screams enveloped the venue to the rafters with fans not holding back on showing how happy they were in meeting their cherished actor.

Today, we look back to all the intoxicating moments, as well as, the beautiful emotions shared at #LeeJongSukinMNL.

In this, we are a bit guilty because it was just hard not to flow with the cheerful ambiance emanating from the chirpy attendees. More so, host Giselle Sanchez was good in coaxing fans to express how they feel.

And when you have a Lee Jong Suk who smartly rides on the inside jokes, breaking the language barrier in the most dapper way, you get the most appreciative fans ever.

A born charmer — not that we need him to exert effort to win our hearts anymore since we can pretty much be content with his smile and charms — Lee Jong Suk sure knows how to interact with his fans in the most adorable way.

As soon as he entered the stage, all of us individually created a special imaginary moment complete with two spot lights, falling rose petals, and a romantic music. But all of us unitedly woke up from the dreams we created for about five seconds, since we all can’t help but threw in our fan girl screams and Lee Jong Suk chants.


Warmly greeting his passionate fans, Lee Jong Suk comfortably readied himself to share his thoughts on the lead of the host.

He expressed excitement meeting Filipino fans especially since it is the last stop of his tour. He remarked how he was taken aback when he heard his name being shouted upon arrival at the airport.

The actor, who once shot the film No Breathing, in the country also shared remembering those moments he spent while filming the movie, when he took a quick dip at the hotel pool he was staying earlier.

For the first segment of the talk portion, the audience had a chance to crack up the brain structure of Lee Jong Suk as he shared random thoughts about his family, managing stress, his year 2018 thoughts, and his best memories with fans.

He revealed that he tries to be friends with his mother and how he shares similar behavior with her.

When asked about dealing with stress, his go-to relief is eating delicious food and how his fans are also helping to relieve his stress level.

The animated emcee took the opportunity to release her fan girl stress after being starstruck on seeing her favorite Korean actor and cutely scream her fangirl’s heart out. Lee Jong Suk adorably rides on her impromptu antic by asking if she is okay making his fans giggle.

Admitting honestly that he pondered a lot of thoughts this year, Lee mentioned that 2018 is meaningful as he turned 30 in Korean age, so he had to think about future projects, his scheduled fan meeting tour, and a possible quick break in 2019.

His hinting of military enlistment heaved a collective oh-no from fans, who were dreading the thought of his impending army duty. Additionally, he briefly said in passing that he is set for his latest drama filming schedule before the year ends.

When the hosts asked what his memorable moment with fans is, we swear we saw our hearts slowly detaching from our bodies forming smiley faces as it floats in the venue, when Lee Jong Suk cooly answered, “Right now”.

From his humble supporting roles, Lee Jong Suk easily found his niche as an actor after transitioning from his modelling roots.

The dashing actor easily wins over the viewers’ hearts that three years after his debut, he scored his first lead man role in 2014.

Since then, he never looked back and has cemented a reputation as one of the most bankable actor of his generation.

His midas touch in selecting projects reflects positively through his track record of successful dramas and films.

Out of the roles he has portrayed so far, Lee said that his recent role as Jung Jae Chan in drama While You Were Sleeping is his most memorable one.

Spicing up the night, a video snippet of his dramas best scenes and lines were presented to the lit audience who were like on a roller-coaster ride squealing out loud on the favorite kisses on Lee Jong Suk’s dramas —“hand kiss” in Pinocchio, “rain kiss” in While You Were Sleeping, and “handcuff kiss” in W.

As the mood was set on reminiscing the mentioned dramas, Lee commented that the rain kiss scene in While You Were Sleeping had to be shot in reality and dream premise. He coyly admitted kissing Bae Suzy twice, making his fans giggle.

While on the “sweet scene” note, the actor confessed that to film that type of scene he needs to be on a heart-fluttering mood. He also talked about how the “handcuff kiss” on W was hard to do because it required intense and strong emotion.

Moving forward to the next video snippet set, the comic scenes from his recent drama While You Were Sleeping were shown.

Lee Jong Suk admitted that, since he has spent a lot of time filming with the cast members of While You Were Sleeping, he is more close with them.

He also thinks fondly of Shin Jae Ha, the actor who played his brother in the drama and hopes that he becomes successful with his future ventures.

When asked if he likes wearing suits, he admits wanting to look good for the fan meeting so he dressed up nicely for the night, but uttered that he prefers comfortable clothing.

At this point of the fan meeting, Lee Jong Suk has already convinced us that he is really intelligent. There were even moments when he responded right away to the MC’s English question without the help of the interpreter. He also gave sound answers when questioned about his goals as an actor.

We got the MC’s back when she sweetly pryed if the actor experienced wanting to have a specific type of romance based on the roles he have played before. He said he does not want to have a romance that will go through a hard time since most of his dramas were like that.

Striking while the love talk is hot, Lee Jong Suk’s OX talk ensued. The actor has to answer Yes or No to five questions.

I think there is a reason for a love that others oppose. – YES

I am a jealous person. – YES

Man and woman can become friends. – YES

I have a consistent ideal type. – NO

I am active and enthusiastic when falling in love. – YES

Lee admitted that he is a jealous type for some reason. He made us swoon when he elaborated that him being active and enthusiastic when in love means when he wants something, he will be keen to have it. *swoon

To answer the one-million question of what his ideal woman is, he curtly answered that his ideal type is someone who is wise.


On November 27, his much-awaited drama special Hymn of Death with Shin Hye Sun will be aired via SBS.

He is set to portray a genius playwright in a dramatic project without a guarantee pay, since he agreed to work probono with the director of the last series he starred in.

He took pride in how he prepared for the forbidden love premise of the story. Furthermore, he mentioned that he looked like the historical figure he was about to portray in real life.

Next up in the fan meeting schedule was Lee Jong Suk’s music show. We will all be honest that we were totally swept by Lee Jong Suk fever that night so that made us the most understanding people ever in encouraging him to go on while he struggled with the song while playing the piano. *wink

To prove that we-still-love-you-no-matter-what claim, fans took turns with encouraging chant appreciating his effort.


Sharing you a quick peek of this sweet tune from Lee Jong Suk's music show last night at #LeeJongSukinMNL.

Like a school boy who knew he acted cute in front of his crush, he got us all laughing when he mumbled that he really practiced for the not-so-smooth number and apologized on the mediocre result.

His all-willing fans assured him that doing his best was enough. He sweetly responded that he wanted to do a song for his fans as a gift, and we had to do a collective “that’s-so-sweet-awww” for that.

We love how Lee Jong Suk connects to his fans enthusiastically all throughout the evening. When asked to compare about his previous Crank Up tour, all of us melted when he said, he regrets why he did not come early in the Philippines.

Next up was the telepathy game with lucky pre-selected onsite fans. Lee Jong Suk gave glimpses of trivial things about him while playing with his fans. He likes milk over juice, historical over sci-fi drama, long sleeve polo over knitwear, text message over call, swimming over skiing, and white over black.

Six lucky fans had the chance to stand with the actor on stage. Lee was so adorable and in his element while comfortably interacting with his fans.

When asked to guess one of the girls age, he guessed it right and responded to the emcee’s lead to guess hers playfully with a quick lip service that she looks 18. Adept in feeling how nervous his fans were to meet him, he communicated with them genuinely with small talks and even gave advices and cheers for their hard work.

The lucky girls said their versions of saranghae and he willingly gave hugs to all six of them who said he has inspired them and made them happy.

After the game, we caught him even directing where the participants had to go down on the stage like a director — truly immersed on the gathering with a never-fading smile.

Lee said, “I am glad to meet you guys. I know that this is the last stop of my fan meeting tour. I will go home with the great memories I had and I promise to give better projects for all of you.”

To capture the moment, a celebratory selca was taken amidst the unwavering cheers of the fans.

Lee expressed gratefulness over the passionate love he received and said it will forever stay in his memories. He gifted the adoring fans another song after that. And under his love spell, the enthused crowd enjoyed his melody no matter what. *wink

Sharing how it was a good decision to visit the Philippines after a previous mishap in his last fan meeting, he expressed gratefulness for the warm response he received.

In his closing words before his last song, Lee Jong Suk said, “I wont forget your warm love and support for me. I don’t know when I will meet you again. But even then, I so love you and I am so thankful.”

“Thank you and I love you guys. I hope you guys go home and stay safe. You guys are my pride and today’s memories, I will never forget,” he added.

It was two hours of blissful encounter with hit maker actor Lee Jong Suk to his loving fans who did a great job of keeping the spirited mood high with appreciative hurrahs.

Along with the sweetest memories, it was seeing the actor’s ordinary self — stripped with his celebrity coating — that made the fan meeting an eventful experience.

Getting some ideas of what he is like as a person and his spontaneous gestures and responses have convinced us that his savvy choices in his projects stems from his innate keen mind.

For Lee Jong Suk followers, a magical date night with the actor who gifted them with some of the best K-Drama heroes is truly a gift, a memory they will keep dearly in their hearts.

Lee Jong Suk to Filipino fans: "You guys are my pride."

[resize output image]


South Korean superstar Lee Jong Suk held his first-ever fan meet event in Manila last weekend.

The 30-year-old K-pop star staged his Crank Up Fanmeeting Tour on Sunday night, November 18, at the Araneta Coliseum. 

This event—produced by Pulp Live World—is also the last stop of Jong Suk's fan meet tour.

Loud cheers filled the coliseum when Jong Suk stepped out on the stage.

The first part of his Philippine show was a Q&A hosted by comedienne Giselle Sanchez.

Jong Suk told the crowd, "I came here feeling very excited and nervous because it's my first time seeing my Filipino fans.

"And also, the fact that Manila is the last stop for our Crank Up Tour, I feel very excited and I hope that we'll have a good time today."

He later added, "I felt really thankful and surprised when you guys were already shouting my name in the airport.

"I felt so bad, because I wasn't able to greet you guys there.

"So I am happy that we're able to see each other today."




In 2013, Jong Suk visited Davao for his film No Breathing.

He said, "I remember when I came here to the Philippines before to shoot for No Breathing...

"And when I was swimming today, I remember the time that we came here to shoot."


Jong Suk talked about the biggest lessons he learned upon reaching this milestone in his life.

He told the audience, "2018, I turned 30 in the Korean age system and because of that, I try to become more mature.

"I have a lot concerns that I thought about and also I met my fans through the fan meetings, I was thinking about what to do with my next projects.

"And because next year, we might have a break with each other."


Jong Suk also looked back on the characters he portrayed in his hit dramas.

In 2014, he played a genius journalist named Dal-po in Pinocchio. In 2016, he played a webtoon character named Kang Chul in the hit romantic drama series W. In 2017, he was cast as a rookie prosecutor named Jae-chan in the hit series While You Were Sleeping.

When asked what his most memorable character is, Jong Suk answered, "I think the most memorable character... well, because, it's the most recent one, it's my character from While You Were Sleeping."



Jong Suk also showed a teaser of his upcoming mini-drama series titled Death Song. The South Korean actor said he wants to promote this kind of drama formats, which is why he agreed to work on it without guaranteed pay.

The K-pop star described his role by saying: "The character that I'm playing is actually a very respectable person, he's mature and a good human being himself.

"So before any love scene, I want to become a person like him first."

Jong Suk felt overwhelmed by the loud cheers he received from his fans that night.

He candidly admitted, "From the opening, I just thought, 'Why did I come to the Philippines just now?'"


Another highlight of the fan meet was the OX Talk segment where Jong Suk talked about relationships.

Jong Suk had to raise the cardboard with a circle on it if he agreed with the statement or a cardboard with a cross if he disagreed with the statement.

The While You Were Sleeping actor admitted that he is a jealous guy.

He later explained, "I don't know but I have a lot of jealousy in me."

Jong Suk said he's quite "active and enthusiastic" when it comes to pursuing someone he likes.

When asked how he does it, he just said, "When I want something, I want to have it."



The South Korean actor pointed out that he does not have a certain type of woman.

However, he did specify one trait that he likes in a woman: "I want someone who is wise."

Lucky fans had the chance to participate in a game called "Heartbeat Telepathy."

The final six participants had a chance to give Jong Suk a hug before the final question.

One fan even handed Jong Suk a bracelet as her gift for the actor.

The final three winners won a special prize from their idol.

That night, Jong Suk treated his fans to a few performances.

The Pinocchio actor played the piano and performed a medley of the songs "My Soul," and "Does She Know" from the original soundtrack of While You Were Sleeping.

At one point, Jong Suk had to pause and repeat his performance for his fans and said, "It's not easy. I wish I'll do good."

His fans kept cheering him on until he finished his performance.




Jong Suk also serenaded his Pinoy fans with his song "Come To Me." He ended the fan meet by performing "Only Then."

Both songs are from While You Were Sleeping's official soundtrack.

Jong Suk said that these songs are his gift for his fans.

Before leaving the stage, he told his Filipino fans, "You guys are my pride and today's memories, I will never forget."
