Happy 13th Anniversary BOF:heart:

 

 

@CarolynH ohhh................time flies so fast. I realized this is a few years old now..... Love your gif....That crazy hair has dated badly but an entertaining drama. hahaha - So, for me the drama aged well. I find the drama good. I like the show a lot since not too many scenes brought a tear. For those who haven't watched this yet, if you love SK romances, this show is mandatory. LOL - BOF is an excellent choice for teens & I'm not a teenage girl anymore. I rarely watch dramas for 2x but, this one I re-run it for the 2nd time in a row. Thumbs up! My only complain for this drama is : There are so many cheesy flashback montages still, I did not fast-forwarding them. I watched it till the end. Why? -  because of its glamorous locations & high fashion, opulent homes – I enjoyed it all. It's bizarrely addictive. And.... I felt satisfied by how it wrapped up. :heart:

On January 6, Lee Min Ho posted a photo of his recent status on his personal social network.

In the published photo, Lee Min Ho takes a selfie in the mirror in the waiting room, and the chic charisma is felt in the way he looks at his cell phone with his hand on his chin.

In particular, what caught my attention was a completely different face, and the sharper V-neck and bare cuffs that seemed to have lost more weight are both surprising and unsettling.

Up until November of last year, he talked about a recent situation where his cheeks seemed to lift, prompting questions about whether he is currently dieting.

Meanwhile, Lee Min Ho appeared in the SBS drama "The King: Eternal Monarch," which ended in June 2020.

i don't know, that his face looks different.  Perhaps his longer hair makes his face look different.  Friday eve! yahoo

 

@CarolynH same here with me - I don't think he looks different with long hair. I guess some see it that his face becomes longer. Because the longer your hair is, the longer it will make your face look. Long hair instantly slims most face shapes. But, for me, I don't see it that way for him, though. That's why, it's often best to go with shorter styles. It's the same way as the way you part your hair, it can completely change the look of your hairstyle and your face shape. The way you part your hair can elongate your features, too. It can bring out your cheekbones, and soften sharp angles of your face.

January 7, 2022

 

Mermaids are among those species we have been searching for since our childhood. Legends of the Blue Sea gives us nostalgia by repeating all those legends that we’ve been listening to from the moment of our birth. But is the plot of The Legend of the Blue Sea fiction like other ones, or is this based on any real event? The answer to this and many other questions lies in this article.

 

Here’s also the trailer of The Legend of the Blue Sea that you can watch:

The plot of The Legend of the Blue Sea

 

This drama depicts the love story of Shim Cheong (Jun Ji-hyun), a mermaid, and Heo Joon-jae (Lee Min-ho), an intelligent con-artist, who are the central characters in the drama. Their journey is interwoven with the parallel story of their Joseon-era incarnations.

The series is about their journey together in the present time while encountering people from their past life (from the Joseon period).

 

Is The Legend of the Blue Sea based on a true story?


While growing up, at some point, we all have listened to the tales of mermaids. Species with half human and half fish bodies are not new to us. The Legend of the Blue Sea is based on one of these tales. This drama is based on a traditional Joseon-era legend about a fisherman who catches and releases a mermaid from an early collection of tales.

Is The Legend of the Blue Sea Worth watching?


Hell yeah!! This show is as epic as it sounds. It’s a lovely story of love with a fantastical twist. What makes it perfect is the mixture of romance, humor, and drama, an all-in-one plot.

Moreover, all the difficulties the beautiful couple faces on their path to happiness makes the drama more engaging. Moreover, the beautiful OSTs are another reason to watch this drama even more. So without any doubt, this drama is entirely worth it.

 

My reviews

 

In my opinion, The Legend of the Blue Sea is a lovely drama. What I liked most about it was its parallel connection with the past. This connection was wholly unexpected and, somewhere, added more quality to the show’s plot.

 

Spoiler

At the show’s beginning, I was very excited and watched a few episodes eagerly. However, eventually, it lost its touch somewhere. Also, the drama was slow many times, which gave me a feeling of fillers. But the romance part of the show was significant, and it kept me moving through slow parts (Some of them only).

But overall, Lee min-ho and Jun Ji-Hyun did justice to their characters and made us fall in love with the show. The chemistry between the two was perfect as well.

BY GEMTRACKS STAFFJAN 10TH, 2022

 

Lee Min-ho is a talented South Korean actor and singer, and he is one of the most in-demand Hallyu stars in today's world. Even though he aspired to be a professional football since childhood, he suffered an injury during elementary school and it forced him to give up football and follow his dad's dream into acting.

He majored in Film & Art from the "Konkuk University" and he joined "Starhaus Entertainment", he managed to land many small roles in TV before he landed the breakthrough role of Gu Jun-Pyo in the TV series "Boys Over Flowers". This movie didn't just earn him many accolades including Best New Actor (TV) Award, it also got him a lot of fame and popularity in Korea and many parts of Asia.

This role would turn out to be the platform he needed to catapult his career, as soon he would be seen in lead roles in many other TV shows, including "City Hunter", "The Legend of the Blue Sea", and "The Heirs". The talented South Korean heartthrob even made a mark on the big-screen with films like "Gangnam Blues" and "Bounty Hunters". His musical pursuit would include two albums "Song for You" and "My Everything".

 

Personal life of Lee Min Ho

 

Lee was born in Heukseok-dong, Seoul, South Korea. As a young child, he hoped to become a football player but an injury that he suffered in the 5th grade of elementary school ended his dreams. However, he still keeps up with football, even mentioning Nal-do Ho as his favorite player.

In the 2nd year of his high school days, Lee Min-Ho turned his attention to acting. By the time of his senior year, Lee would become a part of Starhaus Entertainment after some help from an acquaintance. After he went through training, he started to audition for roles and landed smaller roles in many TV dramas. His major breakthrough would come with him landing the lead role in the KBS2 drama "Boys Over Flowers" as Ku Jun-Pyo. The TV series became incredibly popular and regularly received ratings of over 30% in South Korea. He then majored in Film & Art at Konkuk University.

In 2011, he starred in the drama series "City Hunter", which was based on a Japanese manga by Tsukasa Hojo. His co-star in that show was Park Min-Young. The duo knew each other for almost five years having worked together before in the KBS2 drama "I Am Sam" in 2007. According to the management agencies of Park Min-Young and Lee Min-Ho, they ended up developing feelings for one another while filming "City Hunter". After the completion of "City Hunter", they dated more seriously and got invited as a couple.

 

Career beginnings of Lee Min Ho

 

Lee Min Ho started to audition and land minor roles in numerous TV dramas like "Recipe of Love" and "Nonstop 5". His official debut role came in the EBS series "Secret Campus" in 2003. Early in his career, he went by the stage name "Lee Min" as his agency thought that his birth name was a bit too ordinary. However, his name was essentially pronounced in the similar way as the Korean word "imin" that is used for referring to "immigration". He would later say that it was very difficult to find himself in internet search results. He would go back to using his original name.

In 2006, he unfortunately had to put his career after a serious car wreck halted his career. This incident would occur when he was in the back of the car with Jung II-woo. The two friends sitting in the front seat were instantly killed. Lee was injured severely and had to spend many months bedridden. Once he recovered, he received his leading role in the high-school drama "Mackerel Run" in 2007, but the series got reduced to just eight episodes because of low viewership ratings.

In 2008, he went on to appear in several roles on TV dramas ("I Am Sam" and "Get Up") as well as two movies "Our School's E.T." and "Public Enemy Returns". During the shooting of "Our School's E.T.", he would become good friends with Kim Su-Ro, who went on to praise him on a variety show.

 

Breakthrough in the entertainment industry

 

His breakthrough would come in 2009 when he managed to land the leading role of Gu Yun-Pyo in KBS' "Boys Over Flowers", which was the Korean adaptation of the popular "Shojo" manga of the same name. The competition for this role was pretty intense and Lee found out that he had been cast through the newspapers. The series ended up attracting high viewership ratings and buzz throughout South Korea during the broadcast. Lee's newfound popularity would get him several endorsement deals and create yet another Korean wave throughout Asia, making Lee a Hallyu star.

In 2010, he starred in the romantic comedy "Personal Taste", in which he had to play the role of a young architect who would pose as a gay man to be roommates with a young woman, which led to romantic complications.

 

International fame and becoming an acting sensation

 

In 2011, he would play the titular character in "City Hunter", which was an acting drama based on Tsukasa Hojo's popular manga. The drama was a massive commercial success and it contributed to his growing popularity, especially in Japan, China, the Philippines, and France. He participated in the popular variety show "Happy Camp" in December 2011.

The following year, he starred in the historic-medical drama "Faith" with Kim Hee-Sun. Even though the drama had pretty high viewership ratings, it still ended up being a commercial failure because of its high budget. In 2013, his wax figure was unveiled at the Madame Tussauds, Shanghai. He would then release his first album "My Everything" in May before going on a fan meeting tour in Asia.

He then announced his return to TV with the new drama titled "The Heirs", which was a teen drama written by Kim Eun-Sook. It premiered on October 9th, 2013, and the show enjoyed incredible popularity locally with a peak rating of 28.6% as well as internationally, having more than a billion hits on the Chinese streaming website "iQivi". He then experienced an increase in his popularity, especially in China.

 

Continued success as an actor

 

In January 2014, a second wax got unveiled at Madame Tussauds, Hong Kong. On January 30th, he became the first Korean celebrity to perform on the CCTV Lunar New Year Goals in China. He then sang a song with Harlem Yu, who was the original singer of the theme song of Meteor Garden, which was the Taiwanese version of "Boys Over Flowers".

He also received the invitation to the 3rd conference of the South Korean Presidential Committee for Cultural Enrichment where he would represent the entertainment industry for sharing and contributing to the discussion of issues related to the development of Korea's cultural content. He received the Prime Minister's Commendation at the 5th Korean Popular Culture and Arts Awards for his incredible contribution to Hallyu.

He would then record and release his second EP "Song For You" in October of 2014 under the label Universal Music. As with his previous record, he stated that the songs were recorded for his fans and that he didn't have any ambition of pursuing a singing career. The album release would coincide with the start of his "RE: MINHO" fan meeting tour that spanned multiple Asian cities. He ended up taking a starring role in Yoo Ha's noir action movie "Gangnam Blues" in 2015, which was set in the 70s when the real estate development boom swept across the Gangnam area. The movie co-stars Kim Rae-won, marking Lee's first leading role in a feature film.

In 2016, he starred in the action-comedy film "Bounty Hunters", which was directed by Shin Terra. The movie topped box office charts on its release date, going on to gross over $31 million in China. Later that year, he made his small-screen comeback in the fantasy romance drama "Legend of the Blue Sea" with actress Jun Ji-Hyun, which ended up being a massive success.

 

In 2019, he was cast beside Kim Go-Eun in the SBS-broadcast and Netflix romantic-fantasy drama "The King: Eternal Monarch", which was written by the writer of "The Heirs", Kim Eun-sook. It was widely regarded as one of the most anticipated series of 2020 and it served as Lee Min Ho's comeback series after the release from his mandatory military service. The series ended up getting a recording for SBS' highest 2020 Friday-Saturday drama premiere ratings, even maintaining the #1 spot on the weekly Wavve drama chart for 8 consecutive weeks. However, it would get mixed reviews while the domestic viewership ratings were lower than expected as compared to previous works by Kim.

 

Net worth of Lee Min Ho

 

Lee Min Ho is a popular South Korean actor and he has an estimated net worth of $13 million. Born on June 22nd, 1987, he had aspirations to become a football player, a dream which would fall apart after he suffered a major injury in the 5th grade of elementary school.

He was in the 2nd year of his high school when he decided to turn to acting, making his debut with MBC's "Love Hymn" in 2005, playing a minor character role. He landed his first lead role in 2007 when he had to portray Cha Gong Chan in SBS' eight-part high-school drama "Mackerel Run". His career breakthrough would come two years later when he landed the lead role in Gu Jun-Pyo in "Boys Over Flowers", which was the Korean adaptation of the Japanese TV drama "Hana Yori Dango". He starred alongside Koo Hye Sun, Kim Hyun Joong, and Kim Bum, and this role ended up catapulting him to fame.

Incredible success followed, as he soon scored a role in the MBC TV drama "Personal Taste", a show in which he played an ambitious young architect.
