Lee Min-ho prepared the album for two years. Apart of the album sales will be donated to charity.
He will perform the songs in the album at his fan meeting in Korea scheduled today, May 25, at the Kyung Hee University Grand Peace Palace in Seoul.
To promote the album, Lee Min-ho will hold his first "My Everything-World Tour 2013" in Asia, which will see him visit the Philippines, China, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia and Thailand.
"Fans in Manila will be able to see Lee Min Ho perform live for the first time, as he will be singing songs from his new album, 'My Everything,"' Glenn Llamas of Wilbros Live told Bulletin Entertainment.
The "Lee Min-ho Live in Manila: My Everything-World Tour 2013" will be held on July 6 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
As a local clothing brand endorser, Lee Min-ho visited the Philippines last November for his fan meeting and mall tour.
"So this time, fans can expect more - see Lee Min-ho perform live and interact with him as well," said Llamas.
He would like to thank his Filipino fans for all the love and support, and because of that, he is dedicating this concert for them. He is excited to be back and be with his Filipino fans again," added Llamas.
Lee Min-ho rose to stardom through the 2009 hit Korean drama "Boys Over Flowers." His other TV dramas include "Personal Taste," "City Hunter" and "Faith." He is set to star in the new drama "The Heirs."

Many drama officials have been complaining about Kim Eun Sook′s actor sweep-up for her upcoming piece.
The upcoming Kim Eun Sook drama, SBS′ The One Trying to Wear the Crown, Withstand the Weight - The Heirs, is set to air in October, but it′s already confirmed its star-studded cast, leaving virtually no one behind for other dramas.
One official said, "We understand how she got Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye, but we didn′t expect such rising stars as Choi Jin Hyuk, Choi Won Young, Kim Sung Ryeong, Kim Woo Bin, [ZE:A′s] Park Hyung Sik, [f(x)′s] Krystal, Kang Ha Neul and [CN Blue′s] Kang Min Hyuk to all join them in The Heirs. We recently offered them roles in another drama but they turned them down, saying they′ll be ′joining Kim Eun Sook′s drama.′"
The official added, "It′s very impressive how a drama that will air in October started casting actors since the beginning of the year up until recently. Even dramas that are set to air in September haven′t been able to finish casting yet, but this drama, which will air in October, is already finished putting together its main cast. We didn′t know actors were so bent on joining The Heirs even if it meant they would have to wait 10 months."
It has become known that some actors even asked Kim Eun Sook to cast them regardless of how much they′ll be paid. It seems the success of Jang Dong Gun of A Gentleman′s Dignity and Hyun Bin of Secret Garden prompted them to think of her dramas as an opportunity to launch themselves not only into the mainstream drama scene, but also advertising.
Kim Eun Sook pours so much detail into her supporting characters that actors wish to act even in those roles if they can′t get a main role.The Heirs has finished casting, and will start shooting in September.
FILMING IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
The SBS drama, "The Heirs," will film in California for about three weeks, shooting scenes in Los Angeles and in Malibu to illustrate the luxurious lifestyle of the drama's rich young characters. Lee Min Ho has been practicing surfing for this role, so a good place to spot him might be riding the waves on Malibu's beaches.
Most of the main characters in the "Gossip Girl" style drama are the high-school-age heirs of wealthy and powerful families. Lee Min Ho, whose last drama was "Faith: The Great Doctor," plays Kim Tan, a student at an exclusive upscale high school, while Park Shin Hye, who was last seen in "Flower Boys Next Door," plays Eun Sang, the daughter of a deaf housekeeper. And yet they meet and wind up at the same high school. Cinderella story, anyone?
"The Heirs" is one of the year's most anticipated dramas for two reasons. Writer Kim Eun Sook is the writer responsible for the hit dramas, "Secret Garden," "Lovers in Paris" and "A Gentleman's Dignity." And the show has acquired such an appealing cast of up and coming actors.
Choi Jin Hyuk, who was recently seen as the mountain spirit Wol Ryung in the hit drama "Gu Family Book" will play Lee Min Ho's older brother. The drama's cast also includes Choi Won Young, Kim Woo Bin, ZE:A's Park Hyung Sik, Kang Ha Neul and CNBlue's Kang Min Hyuk.
Choi Won Young last appeared in "Dating Agency: Cyrano," Kim Woo Bin became popular after "School 2013," and Park Hyung Sik did a great job acting in "Nine: Nine Time Travels." Kang Na Heul appeared in "Two Weeks," "Monstar," and "To The Beautiful You." Kang Min Hyuk last appeared as a playboy in "My Husband Got A Family."
The drama began casting early in the year and has snagged so many desirable actors that some drama officials complained there was no one left to cast in other dramas. It was also said that some of the actors now in the cast asked writer Kim Eun Sook if they could appear in "The Heirs" because the supporting roles in her dramas are so well developed.
"The Heirs" will air in October.
