Lee Min-ho is making a big comeback across the region, having starred recently in Netflix’s The King: Eternal Monarch drama alongside actress Kim Go-eun, and now headlining one of the most exciting shopping holidays of the season. He is, in fact, one of Korea’s top entertainment talents, recently smashing various social media records as the most followed actor across all social media platforms on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Weibo! He’s also a humanitarian, working with Worldwide Fund for Nature and the United Nation’s Children Fund, as well as founding PROMIZ, a fund-raising platform to raise awareness and encourage donations for humanitarian and social causes.
“I’m excited to join the Lazada family for the 11.11 shopping festival as their first regional brand ambassador,” says Lee. “Lazada is known across the region for its innovative and customer-focused approach to online shopping, and working with the Lazada team has been a really fun and creative experience so far. I look forward to introducing more fans and friends in Southeast Asia to the lifestyle platform,” he adds.
