*P.S: To tell the truth, for the second Weibo update, i translate it from Korean and Chinese (mix them), and to tell the truth i have no idea why he wrote "버퍼링/Buffering...", while none of those words came out at his Chinese Tweet..LOL!!! Perhaps because he's streaming also?? but i think his craziness in playing words and slangs come out again..^^

이민호, 중국에서 ‘올해의 위너’로 선정돼

[TV리포트 서미연 기자] 배우 이민호가 중국에서 ‘올해의 위너’로 선정됐다.
이민호는 중국 톱스타인 우치룽(오기륭)과 함께 지난해 12월 27일 방송된 중국의 후난 TV ‘오락무극한’에서 올해의 위너로 뽑혔다.
‘오락무극한’은 방송에서 ‘이민호와 오기륭은 2011년을 헛되이 보내지 않았다’는 타이틀로 장바이쯔(장백지) 이낙영 임준걸 탕웨이 등 중국의 유명연예인의 소식을 전했다.
이어 “이민호는 여러 편의 드라마를 히트시키며, 최고의 스타로 떠올랐다”며 “이민호의 중국진출은 그의 패기를 보여주는 것으로 귀엽고 꽃미남이 대세인 요즘, 세심하게 준비한 중국 진출에서 이민호만의 절묘한 한 수를 두었다”고 설명했다.
또한 이민호는 중국 시나닷컴에서 2011년 한 해를 결산하는 탑 10에 이름을 올렸다. 중국 최대 포털사이트인 시나닷컴의 연말통계에 따르면 이민호는 2011년 중국 SNS 최다 팔로우 순위 5위를 기록했다.

Lee Min Ho – 2012 Toyota Camry — The One and Only [Behind The Scene - Interview with Seol Yoon]

Credits: Toyota USA

Lee Min Ho is a Tall, Well-Mannered Man

How do tall people avoid sticking out like a sore thumb in photos? Actor Lee Min Ho will probably tell you to simply step down a stair. 
The 4th Honorary Prosecutor Appointment Ceremony took place in Seoul on January 4, where Lee was named an honorary prosecutor thanks to the righteous and humane side he showed through his role in the drama City Hunter.

Lee, who realized he was much taller than the others while they were taking the commemorative photo, stepped down a stair to match his height with the others and to avoid blocking those behind him.
Pretty smart, right? But don’t stare at the picture for too long, because it’ll make you feel like you’re staring at an optical illusion.

Netizens have reacted to the photo with comments praising him for his good manners.

이민호, 연초부터 해외 팬미팅 일정으로 '바쁘다 바빠'

'바쁘다 바빠.'

SBS연기대상에서 3관왕에 오른 배우 이민호(25)가 연초부터 해외활동을 앞두고 바쁜 나날을 보내고 있다.
이민호는 지난달 31일 SBS연기대상에서 최우수 연기상을 비롯해 네티즌 최고인기상, 10대 스타상을 수상해 데뷔 이래 최고의 해를 기분좋게 열어젖혔다.
지난해 SBS '시티헌터'가 중화권 등 아시아 지역에서 큰 인기를 끌어 이달 중순이후 대만, 홍콩, 일본, 태국 팬미팅을 줄줄이 앞두고 있다. '시티헌터'의 인기로 아시아 각 지역에서 팬미팅 제의가 빗발치고 있다. 설 연휴 즈음해서 대만 팬미팅을 시작으로 2월, 늦게는 3월초까지 홍콩, 일본, 태국 팬미팅 등을 가질 예정이다.
특히 오는 2~3월중 일본에서 '시티헌터' 방송을 앞두고 있어 2월초쯤에는 드라마 프로모션을 위해 팬미팅 형식으로 일본을 방문할 예정이다. 일본측에서 함께 주연했던 박민영과 동반 프로모션을 요청하고 있어 공개연인인 박민영과 동행할 지 여부도 눈길을 모은다.
'시티헌터'로 중화권을 비롯한 한류스타로 자리매김한 이민호는 중국 드라마와 영화 등 10여개 작품의 러브콜을 받고 있다. 그러나 늦어도 3월초까지 해외 일정을 마무리하고 해외작품보다는 국내 드라마나 영화 중에서 차기작을 선정하고 3월부터 준비할 계획이다.
