One of the country's top hallyu stars, Lee Min-ho, has made his way back to the recording studio and will soon drop a new album.

According to an announcement by Starhaus Entertainment on Friday, the hearthrob is scheduled to release his second full-length album titled "Song for You," sometime next month.

"With this album, his outlook is no longer on debuting as a singer, rather we consider this as something for the fans," said the company. 

After his leading role as Gu Jun-pyo in the hit 2009 drama "Boys Over Flowers," Lee's popularity throughout Asia has skyrocketed and made him one of the most iconic Korean stars. Although best known for his presence on TV dramas, the entertainer took a stab at the K-pop industry, releasing his debut electro-dance single "Extreme" in 2010.

Last year the entertainer shifted musical gears from dance to a more rock-style approach and released his first full-length album "My Everything," featuring the lead single "Love Motion."

"'Song for You' will feature a diverse range of pop-rock singles that show off Lee Min-ho's delicate and emotional side," Starhaus added.

Although Lee has yet to make a strong presence in the music scene, the actor, singer and model is still one of the most well-known celebrities in Asia, racking up more Facebook page followers than any other Korean entertainer in the game with more than 15.2 million "likes." It has been reported that among worldwide actors, Lee's Facebook ranks as the 16th most popular page.

Last month, Lee kicked off his first worldwide fan meeting, "Re:minho," with an special fan greeting event in Seoul. The star will hold his next fan meet on Oct. 4 in Beijing.

Lee is slated to hold his "Re:minho" fan meetings all across Asia and in the Americas, where he is expected to perform tracks off his upcoming album. Last year, his fan meetings were held in eight Asian cities and sold more than 50,000 tickets.
