The capital of Vietnam will be the last stop of South Korean actor turned singer Lee Min Ho's "My Everything World Tour 2013."

The concert, which will include a meeting with fans, will take place on August 3 at Quan Ngua Stadium, 30 Van Cao Street, Ba Dinh District in Hanoi.

He will perform songs from his debut album released last May, "My Everything," which includes songs influenced by genres ranging from British rock to jazz and electronica.

"My Everything" reached the top of Japan's Oricon Charts the same month it was released.

Ho, 26, began his career as a model and actor in 2002, making his breakthrough in 2009 when he won the lead role in "Boys Over Flowers," the Korean adaptation of the popular Japanese television drama Hana Yori Dango.

Ho says he is not interested in a full-blown singing career.
"The album is [meant to express] my love for my fans," said Ho, who last March revealed that he will be returning to the small screen with a new drama, "The Heirs," which will air this fall in South Korea, according to Soompi, an online South Korean entertainment forum.

Ho's concert tour kicked off in Seoul before moving on to Japan, Thailand, China, the Philippines, Malaysia and the US.

Originally, Vietnam was not on the tour's itinerary, but Ho will be performing in Hanoi thanks to the efforts of the Lee Min Ho Fan Club in Vietnam, which collected signatures from local fans petitioning him to come to Vietnam.

Tickets for the show are expect to cost US$70-170.
