It's no surprise that the cult favourite drama 'Boys Over Flowers' was filmed at one of Seoul's most iconic sites! Jun Pyo and Jan Di were set to enjoy their romantic date at the tower.

 

It's a favourite date site for couples because of its beautiful views of Seoul. Maybe you'll run into your own Jun Pyo while taking in the scenery.

 

Aqua Planet Yeosu

This Legend of the Blue Sea set is the perfect venue to relive the show's romance if the scene where Joon Jae and Shim Cheong reunited made your heart melt. The aquarium was used for several sequences, but this reunion moment was shot in front of the Ocean's Life main aquarium.

 

The aquarium spans four storeys and has approximately 280 species; Seoul's second-largest. Don't miss out on their fantastic mermaid performances while you're there!

LEE MIN HO FACED SEVERAL CHALLENGES TO PLAY HANSU

 

spacer.png

 

To play Koh Hansu in Pachinko, Lee Min Ho had to overcome several challenges that he had not had to face in his 16 years as an actor. For the actor, these challenges only made him even more excited about his participation in the American production. The first challenge he faced was auditioning for the first time in 12 years. Due to the great recognition of the actor, they usually offer him the role directly. For this reason, when he was informed that he had to audition to see if he fit the character he felt very nervous, especially since he did not fully remember what the audition process was. The actor auditioned again with excitement and nervousness, finally getting the role.

 

Another detail that was faced was the recording in three different languages. Since the Pachinko story takes place in Korea, Japan, and the United States, the renowned actor had to perform speaking Korean, Japanese, and English. A great challenge which he faced without hesitation, causing his performance to make him one of the possible candidates to be nominated to win the EMMY Award this year.

 

WHAT WAS KOH HANSU LIKE? THE VILLAIN LEE MIN HO PLAYED IN PACHINKO

Koh Hansu's character in Pachinko is very complex. In the story, he is a fishing businessman who actually has ties to the yazuka, as well as believing himself to be incredibly rich. After falling in love with Sunja, a young Korean woman several years younger than him, and getting her pregnant, he wants to take care of her and her child. But Sunja turns him down when she learns that Hansu already has a family in Japan. At that moment, while Sunja escapes from her, Hansu searches for her in an unreachable way to get involved in the life of her son. Hansu in turn is a man who is willing to do the unimaginable for power, without caring about using other people. You can watch Pachiko on Apple TV+.

K-Dramas That You Should Watch

 

In the era of the modern age, it is never a bad idea to dive into historical entertainment. ...The best part is that most of these dramas are a mixture of time travel, reincarnation, royal politics, and love stories.

 

The Legend of The Blue Sea

 

If you are a fan of Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun, you must have watched the epic Kdrama ‘The Legend of The Blue Sea’. This is another Kdrama that has a historical angel and reincarnation. Although it does not have time travel, the historical pasts of the main characters depict a great story. It is a love story between a human and a mermaid that ends tragically because of jealousy and greed.

 

Shim Chung is a mermaid from the Joseon era and has lived for thousands of years waiting for her soulmate Ryung. When she meets the modern-day reincarnation of her past lover, she follows him instinctively. At first, Heo Joon Jae is interested in Shim Chung because of the jade bracelet that she possesses. He plans to steal it from her as he is a con artist. His criminal lifestyle does not portray his real background as he is the heir of a big businessman. However, his stepmother wants to kill him to make her son the heir. Will Shim Chung give up her life for her one true love?

 

Faith

Another one of Lee Min Ho’s dramas is ‘Faith’. The drama aired in 2012 and was very famous among historic drama fans. It is a story about a doctor named Yoo Eun Soo who is brought 700 years into the past for her abilities as a physician. She has gifts that can help in saving the kingdom. However, her hostile interactions with General Choi Young are a hindrance to her work. He is extremely smart when it comes to wars but very timid in life. At first, he does not like her, but as they spend more time together, he starts to fall in love.

 

1. The King: Eternal Monarch

If you are thinking about who could be at the top of the K-Dramas, here is your answer. ‘The King: Eternal Monarch’ contains historical aspects as well as time travel. Also, it is not surprising that this is one of Lee Min Ho’s dramas. Lee Gon is the king in the modern era who is seen as a perfect model by the world. However, a dark secret lies in his heart as he witnesses the murder of his father when he was eight years old.

 

Because of this, he does not like to be bound to royal duties and prefers to have a normal life. To do so, many times, he escapes his guard and goes on new adventures. However, one day he travels through a portal and ends up in a parallel universe. Here he meets inspector Jeong Tae Eul and makes it his mission to defeat the criminals and close the portal between two parallel worlds.

[More than 3 billion] Scale orders! "3 Korean fantasy romantic dramas" with huge production costs

 

May 22, 2022

 

ocr

 

Hello, this is Lily, the author of yomuno... 

 

In truth, fantasy works that take full advantage of advanced CGI technology can be as expensive to produce as a great historical drama!

 

So this time I would like to present 3 fantastic love stories that are worth over 1 billion yen in Japanese Yen.

 

① Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun "The King: Eternal Sovereign" (production value around 3 billion yen)

 

Netflix Original Series The King: Eternal Sovereign Exclusively Distributed

 

Synopsis

 

Time 1994. The Emperor of the Korean Empire, Lee Ho, is killed by a rebellion planned by his half-brother, Li Lim, and even Mannami's breath whistle, which controls the country's welfare, is robbed.

 

Haunted by assassinations and a rebellion, Lim discovers a gate leading to the abolished royal government of the Republic of Korea. Moreover, he killed another self in another world and survived by traveling back and forth between the two worlds.

 

Time has passed and the Korean Empire in 2019. Crown Prince Gong (Lee Min Ho), who has become the emperor's throne, also discovers the gate leading to the Republic of Korea while pursuing the invaders.

 

In this world, there is a woman, Taeul (Kim Go Eun), who appears on an ID card left at the site of the uprising...

 

ocr

 

Inevitable tears! The ultimate romance that divides the world

The flexibility and brilliant work of the actors are combined with a complex and fantastic picture of the world, in which the parallel world and time travel are intertwined.

 

Because Lee Min Ho's sophisticated looks and charisma make him attractive no matter what clothes he wears, such as military uniforms, hanbok, and horseback riding, Kim Go Eun and Woo Do Hwan have the ability to act freely. embodies two different facial expressions.

 

The popularity is said to have been split between Korean and Japanese broadcasts, but it goes without saying that it was an impressive drama with amazing visuals for the lead.

 

And at the same time, when the girl's heart is captured by a hot hug, forehead kiss, neck kiss, and Lee Min Ho's angry chest gesture, this is a work that was impressed by the tears shed by the Gong and Tae Eul couple.

 

*Audience rating: Nielsen Korea: 12.9% based on metropolitan standard (broadcast April 18, 2020)

'Pachinko', survive, above all (2022)

...

Hansu, Sunja's first love, is played by Lee Min Ho , an actor who needs no introduction in Dramaland but gets his golden ticket to the West with this production. For those who know him, seeing him bring to life a pragmatic and unscrupulous man will be a pleasant surprise and unique experience. Although the script gives us more restrained than does the work of literature . Lee Min Ho, it can finally be said that he has tried on the antihero costume and that it fits him like a glove.

7 Luckiest Korean actors who co-starred with the 5 legendary beauties of Korea

 

Song Hye Kyo, Son Ye Jin, Jun Ji Hyun, Kim Tae Hee, and Han Ga In are considered the most gorgeous actresses in Korea, and some Korean actors are lucky enough to star with more than one of them.

 

In Korea during the 2000s, Song Hye Kyo, Son Ye Jin, Jun Ji Hyun, Kim Tae Hee, and Han Ga In were household names with their outstanding visuals and madly popular works. As a result, they were dubbed as the 5 legendary beauties of Korea. It has been a while since then, but all of the 5 still look as spectacular as before, and always star alongside the most handsome actors. Below are some Korean actors who are lucky enough to have worked with these beauties.

 

 

Lee Min Ho

 

city hunter Lee Min Ho

 

Lee Min Ho is one of the spearheaders of the Hallyu wave, and so also has for himself an impressive filmography where he worked with 2 top-notch beauties. In particular, the actor collaborated with Son Ye Jin in “Personal Taste”, and later with Jun Ji Hyun in “Legend of The Blue Sea”.

Despite having such great casts, however, both of these K-dramas didn’t live up to expectations with draggy plot and poor writing. Still, they did decently enough, and Lee Min Ho managed to spark chemistry with both senior actresses.

These dramas took me back!

 

Korean dramas have been seeing an increase in international viewership over the last few years. This has inspired major streaming networks such as Netflix and Disney+ to help bring Korean media to an even larger platform.

 

The charm of Korean dramas captured international fans long before these partnerships. These ten popular Korean dramas premiered over a decade ago and are still beloved.

 

 

10. Personal Taste– (2010)

Son Ye Jin and Lee Min Ho starred as Park Kae In and Jeon Jin Ho, two down on their luck people who become roommates who have difficulty denying their feelings for each other in this romcom.

 

The drama had a star-studded soundtrack at the time, featuring artists such as SeeYa, 4Minute, Younha, and 2AM.

 

 

6. City Hunter– (2011)

@Lee Min Ho, please accept Zhengguanzhuang's fancy confession to you

 

2022-05-24

 

In the traditional impression, "520" is an exclusive festival for lovers. But now, the meaning of "love" has gradually jumped out of the frame of love, and 520 has become a day for us to express our hearts - parents, friends, lovers... Those who have accompanied and encouraged us are all worthy of our sentence: 520.

 

ocr

 

The 520 confession season is just around the corner, and Zhengguanzhuang, a century-old Korean brand, also took this opportunity to launch an affectionate confession to the spokesperson Lee Min Ho, who has been with him for two long years, and recalled the work of "planting grass" Lee Min Ho with fans. A line and a play name are enough to arouse the emotional waves of netizens who "identify at a glance".

 

ocr

 

Since its establishment more than 120 years ago, Zhengguanzhuang has been adhering to the concept of dedication to the development of human health, relying on the century-old ginseng process to develop a variety of fashionable red ginseng products, and together with Lee Min Ho, protect the health of all consumers.

 

ocr

 

Actor, spokesperson of Zhengguanzhuang global brand, spokesperson of Zhengguanzhuang Chinese food series... If you like this kind of Lee Min Ho, don't forget to go to Zhengguanzhuang official Weibo on 520, and remember your entry into the pit with fans and friends do. Zhengguanzhuang has prepared an exclusive event and invites every fan who supports Lee Minho and Zhengguanzhuang to participate in the confession check-in!
