I remember back in 2017 when he and other top stars went for army. Producers were complaining  that they lack big stars to carry big budget dramas as  new gen failed to take over him n other  top stars. And next 2 years ratings were tragic.

 

Look at 2019 and 2020. Top stars r coming back, so does the ratings.

 

No wonders PDs love him.

 

I read that lotbs covered its budget from vitenam sales alone.

 

Sbs want lmh bcoz they know how much revenue he brings from overseas as well.

His track record as leading man is amazing.

4 shows so far over 20% and one of them peaking at 36% creating second hallyu wave altogether.

Ah yes, I remember reading that. Producers were excited that the big stars were coming back from their military service. 

Well, LMH is not called the Hallyu King for nothing. I have faith that The King will do well, if not better, than his previous dramas.

@syntycheLove your positivity tone in this discussion.

even if it’s not breaking records in locals, his drama still do well overseas. And I think that it’s way he attracts big budget dramas. The productions wants to go overseas, and hence the hallyu king nick name.

 

but of course I also wants to see his new drama

breking records locally, knowing that it is important as well. 

But more importantly, I want this to be the work that Lee min Ho is proud of. I want this to be different than his past roles. There has been comments going around about him picking a typical rich male lead character, and while I can see some truth to it, I want to believe that LMH is very aware of what his previous role were and there is a reason why He picked this one. 

 

And I finally watch Gangnam blues last night, and wow!!! I hope to see him doing more project like that, or maybe film festival type project. The guy can act, he is not just pretty face. 

 

Also, he said that he receive a lot of offers and ended up picking King. Now I want to know what are those project that he passed. It’s interesting to know what kind of drama he could have ended up with :).

@scrawford

People who say lmh can't act are just blind.

 

For people good acting is playing a poor man role in small budget dramas. 

 

All his roles are author backed roles. He gets best productions.  Why should he refuse them? Should he refuse them and accept low budget dramas lol?

 

Bof and heirs were school dramas. Both were different characters and had no similarity. 

 

City hunter was such a good action drama and despite his injuries he slayed.  For me his best drama role. 

 

He slayed his role in faith. Personal taste was different. 

 

Lotbs he stole the show from everyone.

 

Faith despite good acting didn't work much on ratings compared to other work of his. Isn't this a business? Doing so called edgy roles, don't bring ratings for him

 

Gangnam blues was a very different genre and he slayed in it. It is just cool for edgy people to call him bad actor. 

 

When he got diverse portfolio.

Yes cant agree more. He is not called the hallyu king for nothing. He is already the king since 2009 right? 

 

Even so, I must confess. In this new role, TKEM, he seems somehow different, exuding a diferrent aura. Sometimes, my heart just skip a beat whenever his pictures or the new teaser of him came out. Hahaha, ok I know he is handsome etc. But believe me, I never feel or act like this before B)

Hi scrawford, I want this drama to do well, rating-wise since it's his comeback project after MS - it's as simple as that. Good to hear that you love the movie, "Gangnam Blues". I find this great, too! A must-watch if you're fan of action movies. It was LMH's 1st major lead role in a movie. We can see that he remains too much of a pretty boy meaning, that you can't completely buy his portrayal of a tough guy but here, he's so convincing. Especially the very well-done soundtrack deserves some praise.  :P

He is not just a handsome face. He can act. Thats for sure. 

 

I am a very picky person when it comes to movies or actor. I only have a very very short list about faves. LMH is one of them. Gangnam is also among the list. 

 

For me, LMH has a unique kind of acting. He plays with his eyes a lot. Sometimes its very subtle but could convey much. And its not easy right for acting that way? Me, my self, only know a few actor/actrees that could do that in a great way. Cmiiw. 

 

My favourite of his drama I already mentioned it here. FAITH. But in the Heirs, I must say that I saw a wider range of emotion,  conveyed only by his eyes. Amazing. I also remember read somewhere that several famous script writer commented about how great he was in the heirs. 

 

Gangnam. Well, personally, this movie is too dark for my liking. Dark and gritty. But then, I must say that LMH's acting here, with his eyes, is on another level. Amazing. 

 

 

And we should remember my friends, he is only 33 yro. It means, he still has so much time and space to improve his quality. Yeay

And to those comments, I’m asking, but what do they share in common other than being rich? Isn’t “rich” just a label? Unless his character is shaped by money (stereotype = arrogant), I don’t see how it makes Lee Gon typical. He’s a King so he must be rich. But having money, alone, does not make him Kim Tan or Gu Jun Pyo. I’ll have to wait and judge his character once I watch the drama but from my speculation, Lee Gon seems like someone of much deeper character. His richness may not be something he flaunts to get what he wants, it may be a “flaw”. His problems also appear to be more complex. Is his goal to pursue one girl? Or is it to save the worlds while protecting the throne from his uncle? Does he actually want to live as the king? Or does he do it because of selfless reasons, knowing that if not him, it’ll fall into the hands of evil? Simply from watching the trailers, I can tell he isn’t your typical rich lead. I also have confidence Lee Gon has potential to be LMH’s best role yet. Now I just need writer Kim to come through. 
 

 

As for ratings, of course I want it to perform well because it’s his comeback. For me personally, ratings cannot influence how I feel about a drama. If I like it, I like it. If I don’t like it, even if the ratings are high, I won’t like it. But for the sake of LMH, I hope it’s another hit.

news_1586736612_1424037_main1.jpg

 

Genesis BBQ, a chicken franchise, said Wednesday that it has selected actor Lee Min-ho as its CF model.
Lee Min-ho, making his first comeback in three years, has a welcome meeting with consumers as BBQ's new face.

 

BBQ selected Lee Min-ho as a model because his masculine and beautiful appearance and deep-eyed charm matched BBQ's high-quality chicken image. Actor Lee Min-ho, who is loved by the public for crossing romantic comedy and melodrama, will be selected as a brand model and will focus on securing young customers with his hip charm.

 

Lee Min-ho, who plays Lee Gon, the emperor of the Korean Empire in SBS' "The King-Eternal Monarch" as his first return in three years, will deliver BBQ chicken's unique image and message through the unique image of a graceful figure and charismatic monarch in the upcoming TVCM.

 

On-air BBQ ads in mid-April can be found on TV, BBQ's official website, YouTube and SNS channels. Afterwards, behind-the-scenes videos featuring Lee Min-ho's various charms will also be released.

 

Lee Min-ho is a global Hallyu star representing the Republic of Korea, and is steadily loved by the public through works such as "Boys Over Flowers" (2009), "Personal Taste" (2010), "Faith" (2012), "The Heirs" (2013), and "The Legend of the Blue Sea" (2016-2017) and has a strong fan base not only in Korea but also abroad.

 

Lee Min-ho's return to the small screen, "The King," is a fantasy romance in which Lee Gon (Lee Min-ho), the emperor of the Korean Empire, and Jeong Tae-eul (Kim Go-eun), a detective of the Republic of Korea, are drawing through cooperation across time and space against the whispers of the devil. Hit maker Kim Eun-sook, director Baek Sang-hoon and director Jung Ji-hyun have joined forces to draw attention as the most anticipated film of 2020.

 

A BBQ official said, "We are looking forward to the synergy of Lee Min-ho, who has various charms from BBQ's image of high quality, best chicken, and softness to charisma," and added, "We plan to carry out various activities such as promoting new products with BBQ's new face Lee Min-ho."

Me too! I want this drama to do well since it’s his comeback. He has a lot to show and I hope he shines! 

 

To think that he did Gangnam after Heirs, realy show his versatility.

******The King watch party*******

I was chatting with one of our old members Kiklaminho, and we decided that we are going to watch the King together from our respective homes.  She"s in NY and I'm in CA.  We think we're going to use Facetime, unless anyone else has a better idea.  Neither one of us is technologically savvy, so it's gotta be easy.  I think it would be fun.  We just need to figure out what time works for everyone.  Internationals, if you're interested and know how we can include you, you're definitely welcome.  I hope people join us.  Kiks said she's not going to talk when she's watching; me--I don't know, maybe some squealing lol:D

In Korea, Lee Min Ho is an actor, not idol. Since his bursting by BOF, he's a talented actor. K-media said he's the first genius actor in 20 years (I can't remember the exact words but something like that) and they've never praised any other actor for such title after him.

 

I've read a comment :
In BOF, GJP is overbearing but elegant, it's hard to portray this character without acting skills. Any actor can portray a rich man or a rich boy by gorgeous clothes or props. But LMH has his unique elegance, charm, and distinguishing characteristic that other actors can not act.

 

I think you all read lots of translations of K-netizens' comments, it's rarely to see criticism about his acting or worrying his acting. (Except the time before City Hunter, he's doubted to portray the male lead, but all shut up their mouths after City Hunter aired. :)) I mean, in Korea, he's never an actor just with good looking. Unfortunately, after "The Heirs", some other actors' promotion ways were dragged him down. Their fans said LMH "can't act" and "big face", because they could not find any other point to drag him down. Many non fans were brainwashed. How many comments "he got slimmed back" on Weibo after the teasers of LOTBS and The King came out. We fans know that he's always thin even too thin. Recently, everyone was locked down at home, lots of posts on Weibo said "how come till now I found LOTBS was a masterpiece and LMH was awesome." :) Really hope more and more people can find this awesome actor after watch his dramas/movies.

Yes, starting from Heirs, all his dramas and Gangnam Blus were written for him, top/famous writers create the character just for him, not create the character then pick him. Why should he refuse them ?

So we would get total running time of 80 minutes? Yay!!!

 

also for those excited for the swoon game or couch talk, I just look at a few dramas on their YouTube channel and seems like those interactive didn’t started until few days after the premier. I could be wrong but that’s my finding so far.

really want to see them interactive outside the screen :)

Hi yuiy, I couldn't agree with you more on what you said above. His eyes are so expressive. LMH is turning (34) years old this June in K-age system. Please remember that in Korea, you're already 1-year old when you're born. So, he's at least 1-year older than his international age.  :P

Aah, I forgot about that. Sorry, my bad. 

 

 

But still, 34 yro is considered young right? Hehehe
