On 16 April, Lee held a fan meeting in Manila, which was his first fan meeting in the country since 2018. The fan meeting was held at the Plenary Hall of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).
According to Manila Bulletin, the hall was jam-packed with Lee’s fans. The actor responded to questions that were pinned to a board. He met three of the fans on the stage. Lee also sang the Korean boy band g.o.d’s “Again.”
South Korean actor Shin Ja-hae, who was Lee’s co-star in While You Were Sleeping, was a special guest at the fan meeting in Manila.
A South Korean media outlet reported on 31 December 2022 that Lee was dating singer-actor IU, whose real name is Lee Ji-eun.
The news was confirmed by the respective agencies of the two stars. Both Lee and IU separately posted lengthy messages for their fans explaining how they met and their love for each other.
Lee said that he met IU when he was in his 20s.
