This is the Lee Min Ho supplement, an actor who has been in one previous issue when we spoke about his first hit drama, Boys Over Flowers.
He was born June 22 1987, making him 28 years old. He became the leader of what is called the hallyu wave when all his dramas, one after the other, became massive international hits.
Lee Min Ho from this point on will be referred to as LMH to make life easier. He starred in few dramas before boys over flowers, but it's that show that launched him on to more with the success of the titles City Hunter, Faith, Heirs, and many others. He credits his skill to his use of Method acting, and in several interviews explains in detail the method of becoming his characters allowing months to prepare and months to ease out meaning he produces maybe one drama a year. Year after year he has won best male actor (his only rival as of now being Kim Soo Hyun but he is for a later date).
His dramas are a variety of different genres. His high school, melodrama, romances are Boys Over Flowers and Heirs,while his action packed thrillers would be City Hunter and Faith - the latter also being historical - just to name a few.
My personal favorite drama of his is Personal Taste - a drama about a would-be architect played by LMH who aims to win a competition using inspiration and direct designs from the family home of a now deceased famous Korean designer. He moves into the home, inherited by the daughter, as a roommate while the woman is under the impression that LMH is gay and has a lover, all the while LMH tries to become close friends with the house owner and find the hidden blueprints of the famous house. Of course, LMH inevitably falls in love with the girl and all sorts of hilarious and emotional things unfold. It's a must-see.
He receives criticism, but his fans outnumber the critics but the hundreds.
I'm going to add more to this supplement at a later date, I just needed to publish now to avoid my entry being disqualified :)Sorry for the horrible formatting in this supplement - I'm uploading from mobile as this week's been busy and I've had no time to write. there will also be a lack of photos, but no worries, I'll include these at a later date!
