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."
