South Korean actor Lee Min-ho, who shot to fame in Asia for his role in the 2009 hit television drama "Boys Over Flowers," has received a rousing welcome from Filipino fans in Manila.

His arrival Thursday was a top Twitter trend in the country. GMA News dubbed him "Lee Min Hot" and showed a video of the heartthrob being mobbed by shrieking fans at Manila's airport.

The 25-year-old actor is an endorser of a local clothing brand. Organizers say he will meet with fans and tour malls during his four-day visit.

Lee is best known for his role as a rich student who falls in love with a poor schoolmate in "Boys Over Flowers." The Philippines' ABS-CBN network says it will soon air Lee's latest drama, "Faith."
