Hallyu star Lee Min-ho, 25, met his Japanese fans for a third time Sunday, at the National Convention Hall of Yokohama, Japan.

"I finally have a chance to meet my fans after a long time because of the long shooting period of my latest drama. I'd like to have a heartwarming time with my fans and build up good memories as it is the cold season and Christmas is coming soon," said Lee in a press conference at the Inter Continental Yokohama Grand held prior to the meeting.

Lee recently wrapped up "Faith," a fantasy time-travel drama depicting a romance between Choi Young, a warrior of the Goryeo Kingdom (918-1392) and Yoo Eun-soo (Kim Hee-sun), a doctor from the 21st century.

The drama garnered moderate ratings, an average of 11.4 percent but had some core followers. It will be broadcast through the smartphone-TV network, "Nottv," on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Japan from Dec. 5. The drama's DVD box sets are also going to be released next year.

At the meeting, Lee read letters from fans and sang Japanese artist Masaharu Fukuyama's hit song "Milk Tea" and "My Everything," the theme song of the drama "Boys Over Flowers."

The actor leapt to overnight stardom with "Boys Over Flowers" in 2009, which was also aired in Japan. Highlights of "City Hunter" and "Faith," were also shown with an orchestral original soundtrack performance.
