Wow, LMH is so attractive in the MBP ads you posted @syntyche:heart:

I'm surprised that anything related to ATS was revealed so soon-not that I'm disappointed lol, but it's unlike any project of LMH's to be released so early.

 

 

 

 

He's dashing as ever. It's a breath of fresh air to see his hair shorter. 

 

Maybe we can then expect ATS to be released soon? Or since they started this early, at least they'll release more stills? :P

@syntyche  thanks for sharing this. Since this is the 1st K-drama romance set in outer space, I hope this is good. It's better to keep the expectations low and get surprised instead later. I hope their chemistry will be good, too. Well, she usually manages to have chemistry with all her co-stars,  same thing with LMH, too. I will surely watch this. The 1st stills we saw shows they're in what looks like a space station interior and other stills that they're in a full space suit. This show is really very interesting because of the premise.   :luvarrow:

*** The drama "Ask the Stars" has been a hot topic ever since the production announcement as the first rom-com in Korea to take place in a space station. LMH shines the brightest in a rom-com genre. In the 1st still, (below)what’s she doing? Is

 

she checking his headset?  :rubchin:

More and more K-stars are invited to world fashion shows: Hallyu power is expanding infinitely

 

Beyond the global music and OTT markets, Hallyu has taken over the fashion world. 

From Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, the four major fashion shows dubbed the “dream stage” of fashion designers around the world, to luxury brands that lead the trend of fashion, the world’s fashion industry has been busy trying to get K stars in the first row this year.

 

K-pop idols, the center of the Hallyu Wave, including BLACKPINK, Red Velvet, aespa, IVE, and ASTRO, as well as actors Lee Min Ho, Yoo Ah In, Jung Ho Yeon, and IU, among many other Hallyu stars, have heated up the photo wall of this year’s Fashion Weeks.

 

Fashion Week refers to a week in which fashion shows of various fashion designers and brands are intensively held.  In particular, Paris Fashion Week, with the largest scale and history among the four major fashion shows, has sent more invitations to K-stars than ever before.

 

Milan Fashion Week also saw K-pop stars dominate the spotlight. Actors Yoo Ah In, Lee Min Ho, Kim Tae Ri, Kim Da Mi, singer-actress IU, Red Velvet Joy, TWICE Sana, and Chae Young were at the center of attention at the event.

 

In particular, Lee Min Ho proved how big the influence of Hallyu stars can be in Milan. Lee Min Ho attended the Milan Fashion Week as a global ambassador of Boss. He also watched the special fashion show in New York that commemorated the 25th anniversary of the birth of the Fendi baguette bag in the front row as its Korean ambassador. Overseas media reported that Lee Min Ho beat model Alessandra Ambrosio and rapper Kanye West to become the most talked about celebrity at the 2022 Milan Fashion Week.

This leads to a question. Why are major global luxury brands inviting Hallyu stars and how much influence K-Star has in the fashion industry?

 

Seol Soo Young, director of Vizucom, which promotes global fashion brands, analyzed that “K-pop idols, which have formed a global fandom, have an optimized system to spread their fashion style through their global tours and YouTube.” In addition, she stressed, “These stars are thoroughly managed by their agencies, which can minimize risks in moral harm or privacy leakage better than other foreign artists.”

 

Director Seol explained, “So fashion houses have no choice but to send their love calls to Korean artists who can give them the best effect in terms of brand affinity and ripple effect.”

*** When the news first came out about this drama, "Ask The Stars" and then reading about the show and learned about Lee Min-ho’s in-show occupation, I was a little on the fence about everything. But seeing that he’s a space tourist rather than astronaut doctor, it makes more sense. With the right script and good direction, I can see this drama coming together in an unexpected way. Lee Min-ho is so great at hitting all the right romantic notes but, people should not forget he’s great at being funny too. And since this is a rom-com (I have a rom-com obsession) rather than a straight romance, I’m hopeful we’ll get to see Lee Min-ho work his comedic chops once again. This drama has a unique setting for a rom com. I’m happy that LMH is back on K-dramaland! I'm always excited to see him back on the screen.  :Megalol:

“I can’t take my eyes off him”: Lee Min-ho’s fans react to his first look in Ask the Stars opposite

 

On November 22, Lee Min-ho and Gong Hyo-jin shared the first look of their upcoming drama, Ask the Stars.

 

The romantic-comedy K-drama is a quirky love story between an astronaut and a space tourist who meet and fall in love with each other at a space station.

 

In the first look shared by Lee Min-ho, the actor can be seen sporting a plain white shirt with a pair of headset firmly placed on his head, while in another look, he is seen in an astronaut’s attire with a seemingly puzzled expression on his face, and finally, in the third picture, the Pachinko star looks on as Gong Hyo-jin caresses his face.

 

Lee Min-ho’s fans were enamored by the actor’s first look in Ask the Stars and have taken to social media to lavish praise on the Hallyu star.

 

@ActorLeeMinHo Astronaut ‍ Dr. Gong Ryong is shining brighter than moon  his beauty is ethereal  I can’t take my eyes off him  #LeeMinHo

 

This will mark the actor's first show since Apple TV’s Pachinko and Gong Hyo-jin’s first show since her marriage to Kevin Oh.

 

Fans agree that the concept of space romance with an interesting pairing of Lee Min-ho and Gong Hyo-jin makes the drama an interesting one.

 

#LeeMinHo can I be yours?
 

"This photo already explains the answer!"

 

@ActorLeeMinHo Can’t wait to see him on screen!

When the Stars Gossip FIRST LOOK: Lee Min Ho and Gong Hyo Jin tease sizzling chemistry

 

spacer.png

 

The upcoming K-drama also known as Ask the Stars has released the first stills starring the two leads.

 

Upcoming space drama starring Hallyu superstars Lee Min Ho and Gong Hyo Jin has released the first look at the characters of Gong Ryong and Eve Kim. Apparently, it will be called When the Stars Gossip instead of what the literal translation of its Korean name reads, Ask the Stars.

 

Firstly, the character of an obstetrician gynaecologist Gong Ryong is introduced. Lee Min Ho is the staunch-looking man en route to space. He reportedly paid a huge sum of money to be able to hop on the trip as a tourist. Dressed in a simple white T-shirt, the actor has an audio device on his head. In another shot, he can be seen in a spacesuit trying to communicate with big actions and his expressions. A third photo shows the character of Gong Hyo Jin in close proximity to him fixing the device on his head.

 

Playing the role of an astronaut, Gong Hyo Jin will embody captain Eve Kim who is a Korean-American woman on a mission. She is known to be a perfectionist and does not tolerate any mistakes. The still with her taking care of Lee Min Ho’s device is a clear indication of the tension that will likely follow between the two. Her stills show her in a uniform with a strict look on her face as she holds a food item. Slicked, neat hair with not one strand out of place, she proudly boasts the badges on her outfit. Her presence in a spacesuit sees her in action as she directs the team and takes over the commands. Her stills with Lee Min Ho further give a look at her actions and the overall feel of the level-headed character Gong Hyo Jin will play.

 

When the Stars Gossip or Ask the Stars also has Oh Jung Se, Han Ji Eun, Kim Joo Heon, and Lee El as a part of the cast lineup while director Park Shin Woo who is known for ‘It’s Okay to Not Be Okay’, ‘Encounter’, ‘Hyde, Jekyll, Me’ and ‘Lovestruck in the City’ will be helming it. The script has been penned by writer Seo Sook Hyang who previously worked on ‘Jealousy Incarnate’ and ‘Pasta’, both of which also starred Gong Hyo Jin in the lead roles. Her other drama ‘Wok of Love’ has also been praised for its many details. The writer-director duo has previously worked together on ‘Jealousy Incarnate’, raising expectations for this collaboration.

 

Previously, actor Lee Min Ho shared behind-the-scenes photos with the cast and crew of When the Stars Gossip where the massive sets could be seen.

 

In another post, he showed his friendship with Gong Hyo Jin in a set of selfies.

 

The cast is said to be hard at work perfecting the wire scenes in order to properly display the weightlessness in a space setting. The chemistry between Lee Min Ho and Gong Hyo Jin both of whom have a list of immensely successful releases under their belts is being paid attention to by the fans of the two. Their roles where they embody an obstetrician gynaecologist and an astronaut respectively as they fall in love inside a space station are garnering a lot of interest worldwide. The gigantic budget of the drama is also raising eyebrows as well as making viewers curious about the output.

 

When the Stars Gossip or Ask the Stars is yet to declare a broadcasting channel that will carry the rights for the drama which is expected to release in 2023.

I can’t get over how totally gorgeous he looks in the Metz pictures. 
The big screen behind him shows how perfect he looks close up.

He must have 3 or 4 contracts relating to health and flawless appearance at the moment mustn’t he with this one, LLB, MBP and Azarine.

 

I guess we have got used to him not wearing socks but Is it the norm for Korean men not to wear socks?

@Lindyloo421  they don't most of the time wear shoes without socks to help them avoid sweat and odors while maintaining the stylish sockless look. Still, this all comes down to personal preference and style. There are K-men who are also wearing shoes with socks. For me, going sockless do have some drawbacks. Socks are important for the overall health of your feet. Not a big fan of it that's why, the 1st time I saw him not wearing socks, it bothered me. I see it all the time so, I get used to it already looking at him sockless.   :heart2:
