Andy Lee from pioneering K-pop group Shinhwa sparked controversy among fans due to his plans to hold a fan meeting in China, according to local reports yesterday.

Yesterday his agency, TOP Media, announced the event would be held on May 17 in China, while being careful to deny it was an “official” comeback. “

The event was arranged due to the requests of local fans,” TOP Media said.

But with Korea still reeling from the Sewol ferry disaster, many criticized the star for announcing the event now.

Andy has been under the microscope since getting embroiled in an illegal gambling scandal last year.

Making the current criticism sharper was the perception that Andy was breaking a promise to return with Shinhwa for their new album later this year.

The agency later emphasized that the May meeting would be a “one-time event” and was something that “had been considered since long before the Sewol disaster.”

Despite many other young actors that have risen in the past year or so challenging Lee Min-ho's spot at the top, the "Boys Over Flowers" star is still #1 in most people's eyes in Asia.

According to a recent survey conducted by a Taiwanese media source, Lee placed #1 for the 2014 Asian Male God. This is especially noteworthy as he beat out tough contenders like Kris of EXO and Kim Soo-hyun from the blow-out drama "You Who Came From The Stars".

The company that conducted this survey explained that to be considered a "male god", you needed to not only have the looks and physique, but you needed talent and skills to set you apart, as well as a gentle amiable nature.

Lee garnered 10 million votes, clinching the top honors. In second place was EXO's Kris with 9.99 million votes, and then Kim Soo-hyun in third with 9.96 million votes.

Fellow EXO members Tao and Lay also made the top 10, at 4th place with 9.94 million votes and 10th place with 7.46 million votes, respectively.
