MANILA -- After his Philippine film debut last year, Thai superstar Mario Maurer is visiting the country once again.

The 24-year-old actor will return to Manila next month for a fan conference organized by Penshoppe, the local clothing line announced early this week.

Maurer will be joined in the conference by Thai actress Baifern Pimchanok, his "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" leading lady and fellow Penshoppe endorser.

The event will be held at two venues on August 4 -- 2 p.m. at The Block Atrium, SM North EDSA in Quezon City; and 5:30 p.m. at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium in Pasay City.

Maurer was last in the Philippines in October last year to promote the Star Cinema film "Suddenly It's Magic," his first Philippine-produced project.

The heartthrob actor and his on-screen partner, Pimchanok, are among the several international stars endorsing Penshoppe. 

Other endorsers include Hollwyood actor Zac Efron, British boy group One Direction, and American TV stars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev.
