Fans want more of Slingshot's Philip Lee

What can I say? The women, they just love me...

New comer Philip Lee (이필립) has been getting a lot of attention lately.

Lee (28) is fluent in both English and Korean and is currently in the KBS drama The Slingshot (Story of a Man). He enters the scene at the end of episode 4 and plays the character Do Jae-myung the son of a man who was murdered by villain Chae Do-woo (Kim Kang-woo). Young master Do returns from U.S. to attend his father's funeral and upon suspecting that his father is murdered, vows to seek revenge.

Do Jae-myung (Philip Lee) joins Shin (Park Yong-ha), Kyung-tae
(Park Ki-woong wearing headphones) and Park Mun-ho to bring down
evil Chae Do-woo.
Together, they form "The Dream Team".

The Slingshot is only Lee's second drama. He debuted in the 2007 MBC drama The Legend (Taewangsashinki) staring opposite hallyu star Bae Yong-joon. Despite being so new in the entertainment industry, Lee has begun to attract a lot of attention in Japan and fans have requested for a fan meeting. This is unprecedented for such a rookie actor.

Women in Korea are not immune to Lee's charms either. His fans recently showed the actor how much they love him by creating a replica of him on his birthday cake. The replica shows Lee (in a scene from The Slingshot) where he lounges on the sofa mourning over his dad's death, clad in what looks like batik pants. They presented the cake to him on his birthday which falls on the 26th May.

Can you recognize which scene from the drama this comes from? I just watched it last night and it was from episode 5! The replica is so cute and shows the amount of love and care the fans have gone though to show their love for their favourite star .

Well, Malaysians can find out for yourself how hot Philip Lee is by tuning in to The Slingshot at 9:10pm Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS World (Astro channel 303).

Are you watching the drama?

The lanky Philip Lee has a penchant for long chain necklaces and
you'll see him wearing it a lot in in the drama.

I'm enjoying "Man's Story (Slingshot)" immensely!
The script is tight & authentic and the actors are so cool.
I even like Park Shi-yun!
Better than any corny American blockbuster on the big screen..

Philip Lee is like real-life Goo June-Pyo ^^
born with filthy rich father, and
a MBA degree from a U.S. ivy League Uni.

He's said to be an heir to a global IT company his Dad owns in America.

Philip Lee could be big in U.S., too, if he's in good management. He has more charisma than Tim Gang and as much charisma and talent as Daniel Henney who'll be starring as one of the three doctors in the upcoming American medical drama, "Three Rivers."

Well, keep enjoying the drama!

In Japan, this drama is getting lots of attention now because of Park Yong-ha (from Winter Sonata)!!

Check out Lee Philips' house in the U.S.~
