With his boyish good looks and charming smile, it is little wonder that photos of Mr Lee Minwei, an auxiliary police officer at Changi Airport, have gone viral. 

The 22-year-old gained instant popularity online last week, after his photos were posted on local humour site SGAG on Oct 14. 

The photos show Mr Lee checking passports and have received a barrage of positive comments, mostly praising his striking features.

Then, just days later on Monday night (Oct 17), Changi Airport revealed the identity of the mysterious officer on their Facebook page, to the delight of his newfound fans. 

Mr Lee said he was shocked by his sudden rise to Internet fame. "There are times when tourists ask me to take photos with them, but I never expected something like this to happen," he was quoted in the post. 

"My friends and family tease me a lot, but I have a feeling my younger brother is slightly jealous."

The photogenic officer added that his mother has "really beautiful eyes", and he and his three siblings take after their parents' good looks. 

While he also revealed that he is single, he added he is not actively seeking a relationship at the moment as he would like to focus on his career. 

 

"I believe things will happen naturally if it's meant to be, and if the right girl comes along," he said. 

This is not the first time a police officer has gone viral for his good looks. 

In February last year, Assistant Superintendent Ryan Koh became the unofficial poster boy for the Singapore Police Force after cardboard standees of his likeness were placed at store entrances across the island. He was dubbed Singapore's "most handsome" police officer.
