Our lovable prince who stars in our favorite "Boys Over Flowers" Lee Min Ho is now the newest face of Bench. To celebrate, we captured some interview details by Raymond Ang of Philippine Star all the way from Seoul, Korea.

Your Boys Over Flowers series has a big following in the Philippines. Why do you think Filipinos respond so much to Korean culture?

LEE MIN HO: I don’t think Boys Over Flowers is actually representative of Korean culture. But I do think that it has a side that attracts females. It touches females’ emotions. That’s the common charm Boys Over Flowers has, towards the female viewers

Do you enjoy doing projects like that?

I think being in a TV show about romantic relationships is something that can be fun, the drama. And then of course, even from the reality, there’s freedom on the show. That’s the enjoyable part.

So what made you sign up with Bench? I’m sure you don’t just sign up with anyone. What about this particular brand?

When I saw the offer from the Philippines, I saw that it’s an international brand. And when I saw the clothing today, I saw that it could be widely loved. It has a youthful feeling and it’s very casual. I think a lot of my fans would really enjoy it.

How would you describe your personal style?

I prefer clothing that has darker colors, a lot of neutrals. I like things that are comfortable and clean, really casual.

What about Bench makes sense with your style?

Well, especially the cardigans that are dark in colors, those are really the ones I personally prefer. Some of the colorful clothing too, actually. Those are things I don’t usually wear in real life, like the colored jeans, but as I was trying them on, I found it pretty fun and enjoyable.

So which of the items were your favorites? If you could recommend a piece to the fans, which especially?

The cardigan that I’m wearing right now, actually. All the cardigans they provided actually, I really like. The colored pants, the colorful jeans I would recommend to my fans.
