Actor/singer Andy (real name Lee Seon-ho, 28) has been picked as the ideal husband in Thailand, said his agency, TOP Media, on August 12.
Andy’s popularity rose after he appeared as a virtual husband of singer Solbi on the MBC TV show “Sunday Night – We Got Married.” On August 9, he participated in the taping of the famous Thai talk show “Speak Out,” which airs on the cable channel True Vision Network. The channel has been airing “We Got Married” these days and the show has become a big hit in Thailand. At the taping, the production team announced the results of a viewer vote, which showed that Andy was picked as the “best husband” and that he and his virtual wife Solbi made the “best couple.”
Actress Top, who hosted the show, said that she thought of Andy as a “cute guy” when she watched “We Got Married” but found him to be very stylish when she saw him in person. She also credited him for his humble and polite personality. After the taping, she told Andy’s fans in the audience that she had also become Andy’s fan and even asked them to give her the Web site address of his Thai fan club.
At his fan meeting on August 8 at Siam Paragon in Bangkok, Andy performed his hit songs “Love Song” and “Propose.” The meeting was attended by the singer’s fans from Thailand, China, Japan, Malaysia as well as Mexico, Australia and the U.S.
A person from Andy’s agency said more than 300 journalists from some 100 media outlets had covered Andy’s news conference and that various shows featuring Andy, such as “X Man” and “Love Letter,” were very popular in Thailand.
Andy is currently appearing in the SBS TV series “Two Wives” and preparing his second solo album. (KBS)
