After a successful Benchsetter Fun Meet last November, Lee Minho is back with his My Everything Global Tour as a gift to his fans.
He started off with his title song “My Everything” and a very cute and upbeat performance for “You & I”.

20130706_LeeMinhoLiveInManila_23 After the first two songs, he had an interview with host Sam Oh. He was asked what was a new Filipino word he learned during his second visit. He learned “maganda” and tried using it to the fans. He also mentioned that he was able to try a new dish aside from the adobo he loved during his first visit. He said he was able to try “kare kare” and he loved it.
Having Line as a sponsor for his tour, he was also asked about what sticker he likes to use most of the time. He said he liked using it since he felt lonely and everyone to add him up on Line. Lastly, he shared what he would be posting on Line for that night. He wanted to post “Masaya ba kayo?” which ended up as “masayaba kayo” when he posted it.

He then closed the first half of the show by singing a ballad, “Pieces of Love”.

After a quick intermission by his dance crew, Minho came back on stage to show off his dance moves with two more of his upbeat songs “Love Motion” and “My Little Princess”.

Aside from singing songs and performing dances, Minho wanted to express his gratitude to fans by giving gifts. He planned to give away ten Brown stuffed toys from Line and a shirt set from Bench. As a bonus, he also added an extra item for the raffle, the actual shirt he wore the day before which he signed. He personally picked and called out the raffle winners. The lucky winners we asked to come on stage and meet their idol to receive the gifts. Each one received a free hug as well. Not to be outdone by their idol, a fan sang a part of “Ngiti” when asked if she wanted to sing anything for Minho. If that wasn’t enough, fans also showed off their knowledge of Korean by singing Happy birthday for Minho’s birthday.
