Actor Lee Min-ho will appear on CCTV’s annual New Year’s Gala show, the most-watched television program in China.

CCTV’s official Weibo account on Saturday announced a partial list of participants for the show, including Lee, making him the first Korean to appear on the TV event that celebrates the Lunar New Year.

On the show, Lee will sing the theme song to the Taiwanese version of drama “Boys Over Flowers” which made Lee a star in both Korea and throughout Asia in 2009.

Ever since, he has been one of the most popular Korean stars in China with over 10 million followers on his Weibo account.

Most recently, he wrapped up hit TV show “The Inheritors” alongside actress Park Shin-hye and is set to start filming movie “Gangnam Blues” (translated title).
