There's Chinese translation for LMH's entire interview in L'Officiel Hommes YK Edition by 蚊子/ 李敏镐铁杆后援会 :
https://www.weibo.com/5411723814/profile?topnav=1&wvr=6&is_all=1#_0

 

I post following English translation (according to Chinese translation) except those paragraphs that already had been translated and post above.

 

[Part I. (page 48)]


LH: How did you spend your time recently?

Lee minho: to be honest, I seem to have had a very casual life for the past two years. Break away from what you've been familiar with, find yourself in a completely new place, live in a way you've never lived before, and adapt yourself to it. Compared with the physical exhaustion, more is the mental exhaustion and lax. After being discharged, I am trying to recover to my original state as I digest the journey and exercise at the same time.

 

LH: What kind of acting do you want to show through the characters in this work?

 

Lee min-ho: when I was in my 20s, I was thinking about what kind of face or image I was going to show through this role. Now that I'm in my 30s, that's changed. Instead of serving a purpose, I want to be more naturally involved in the work and the characters, acting authentically and showing the original characters of the work authentically. This can also be said to be more leisurely than before. This time, I played the role of the emperor of the Korean empire. I am also curious and looking forward to what the role will be.

 

LH: You are rated as a very good actor to select your works.  Screenwriters, directors, actors who work together, etc. There are many criteria to choose. What is your first consideration?
 

Lee min-ho: It has to be fun first. I'll choose something interesting that gets me stuck in it, something that I'll want to revisit when I've read it all. Just as comedy has its fun, so do romance or thrillers. Fun is a word with a broad meaning. So the subject matter is not limited. I also like thrillers or mysteries. It doesn't matter what the subject matter is, as long as it's interesting.

 

LH: Is this standard also taken into account when choosing this return work ?

Lee Min Ho: Of course this work is very interesting. And I met screenwriter Kim Eun-Sook again after a long time, and it felt good. Since the "heirs" in 2013, this was our reunion after six years. I was more at ease than I was at the time, and the screenwriter Kim also looked very good. Unlike before, we have been friendly communicating for a long time, and I am sure that we will create a good work.

 

LH: Now, whether as an actor or as an ordinary human being, you have matured a lot. What do you think is maturity?

Lee Min Ho: Unconsciously entered the mid-30s. Although I have considered maturity, 
but I haven't been able to figure it out. I'm not quite sure what maturity is, and have some doubts about whether the word "mature" is appropriate before "actor" or "human".  I feel that the most mature person is the one who lives life in accordance with his true appearance. Even if it is a little juvenile or a little naive, if this is what the person originally looked like, then I think this is mature. I think that mature people should be thinking about what I really am, thinking about and understanding my own thoughts, personality and appearance, and accepting myself as I am, and showing myself like this to others.

 

LH: As a representative of the Korean Wave, you have got the love of fans from many different countries. What kind of mood do you have?

 

Lee min-ho: it's a very grateful thing. Though difficult to communicate with words, they are able to convey their feelings without any barriers, just like Korean fans. If the image of fans is classified according to the country, fans in southeast Asia and China are the types that actively express themselves, fans in Japan are the more emotional type, and fans in Europe are cool and slightly different. But their eyes convey the same idea. Even if you haven't spoken directly or spent time together, just making eye contact with a lot of people can be healing and energizing.

 

LH: Of course, there has been a period of no name. Relatively speaking, at a relatively young age, your were recognized by the public as an actor and a star. What do you think is the burden? How is it overcome?

Lee Min Ho: 
I don't think the burden is something you have to overcome. One of my biggest motivators in my 20s was the burden, so I worked harder. It's the same now. The idea of doing better, the expectations of my fans, and the ever-growing array of work have all weighed on me, but the constant acting activity has made me focus more on my responsibility than on my burden. Inspire this burden in a more positive way and learn to adjust yourself so that you can take it easy.

 

 

LH: Will you look back at your previous work?

Lee Min Ho: Although I didn't specifically look at the previous works,
I often listen to OST in them. Is it the difference between seeing with your eyes and hearing with your ears? Every time I listen to music will think of me at that time, had what kind of ideas, had what kind of mind, can recall the memories of the past, feel very good.

LH: As far as I know, from a long time ago, you donated in various places through the public welfare platform “PROMIZ”. The last work before enlistment was also a documentary in the form of “talent donated”. What is your philosophy of “donation”?

Lee Min Ho: After hearing the news that the fans donated in my name,
I began to think about my influence as a person and started the public welfare activities. Compared to me, my fans seem to have deeper thoughts and philosophy about "donations." I just think it would make more sense for everyone to do something together.  Instead of me doing it alone, instead of them doing it alone, I want us to do some good and warm things together. So we started the charity event and will continue in the future.

Hi gtLmh, thanks for sharing MORE on this. Getting into character is not just as simple as “putting on” or “taking off” a role. That's why, sometimes actors are unable to let go of the emotions associated with their characters due to character-building. :P

gtLmh, thanks for sharing this -  I discover MORE about him by reading this magazine interview. Celebrities create impact in the lives of people. They can inspire people with their talent, hard work, sincerity, style etc. Being celebrities, whatever they do are magnified, be it a good deed or bad deed. ... In fact, they can serve as role models. I love how he describes the images of fans in each country. I couldn't agree with him more - :P

I post following English translation (according to Chinese translation) except those paragraphs that already had been translated and post above.

 

[Part 2. (page 54)]

 

 

LH: Aside from the actor and the title of Star, I would like to talk about some stories about ordinary human Lee Min Ho. What kind of person do you think you are?

Lee Min Ho: Very honest people? In fact,
I don't really know myself. I was thinking about who I really was, like I was reading a script and analyzing characters. In my opinion, when establishing a relationship, people can only accept each other as they are if they tell each other frankly about their thoughts, feelings and conditions. So I want to be frank. I am a frank person.

 

LH: If there is no schedule, how will it be arranged in a leisurely day?

Lee Min Ho: Because I am preparing for my work, I have to learn a lot of sports like horseback riding and rowing. When I didn't have these classes, I was basically at home. Play games or immerse myself in movies without any thoughts, sometimes listening to music and taking a walk. It is a very ordinary day. Because it is a rest, it will only rest at home, rather than setting a schedule, or going out to do something. I am the kind of home boy.

 

LH: When do you feel happy?

Lee Min Ho: I will feel happiness in the inconspicuous daily triviality.
 I was happy when I had dinner with my family. I was happy when I was rich, I was happy when I was with people I loved, and sometimes I was happy just watching my pet dog. Feeling happiness will make me more energetic and full of energy, and then it will make me regain my happiness. I have not intentionally thought about and looked for happiness. Now, there are many points of happiness, and the range of happiness is very broad.

 

LH: I have to ask your thoughts about love.

Lee Min Ho: When I was in my 20s, I was passionate about love. Try to focus more deeply on my own feelings, and also have a strong sense of responsibility to protect my love. It may be because of this that several emotional experiences are almost the same. I feel that love is hard now. 
Everyone says it's harder to fall in love as you get older, which seems to be true. Will I still be as passionate as I was in my 20s? Can I start in a new way when I fall in love again? But even then I still look forward to when and what kind of love I will fall in love with.

 

LH: Let's return to the identity of actor Lee Min Ho. As an actor, what do you think is the principle that must be held?

Lee Min Ho:
Doing well at your part, this is also the most basic. Better than the script to perfectly show the role, have a sense of responsibility in the shooting scene, as the leading role, lead to create a good shooting atmosphere, balance the relationship between tension and looseness.

 

LH: As an actor, what efforts are being made to make yourself more developed?

Lee Min Ho: I am re-learning pronunciation and vocalization. Unconsciously, I have been debuting for 13 years, during that time I seem to be unable to focus on the most basic things. I want to go back to the basics, not to miss any little details, to face the work in a new way, so I am studying hard.

 

LH: The actor is a profession that consumes physical strength and emotion. Do you have any unique method for relieving stress and replenishing energy?

 

Lee Min Ho: Generally, if I have a lot of pressure or use too much brain, I will get a headache, so I just drop everything and go to sleep. After I got asleep, the stress is relieved and the body is in better condition.

 

LH: Many people seem to regret that you have rarely appeared in variety shows.

Lee Min Ho: In the past, I was somewhat resistant and afraid. As an actor, I have spent a lot of time and effort, then I have to spend more time in areas that are not good at it ? Can I do it well? I had this idea. But now, the idea has changed a bit. Compared to the past, there are indeed a lot of different channels, and the planning is also very good. If it suits me, it can show me a new look, a new charm. Although there is no exact plan, I will be brave enough to challenge if there is such a good opportunity in the future.

 

LH: What kind of actor do you want to be?

Lee Min Ho: When people think back to the various roles of various subjects, it is good to think of an actor named Lee Min Ho. When thinking of the roles of King,
plutocrat, neighboring Oppa, and community friends, it would be nice if I can overlap with these characters.

 

LH: Is it close to your own image that you had fantasized in your 20s?

Lee Min Ho: In an interview after the end of "Boys Over Flowers", I was asked what the 30-year-old Lee Min Ho would be like. I remember that I answered at the time, "Could I be married?" I almost never imagined the future in advance, so I answered it without thinking seriously. If you use that as the benchmark, it is not close at all. 
There is a feeling that I am still the same, only the time passed. If ask me what the 40-year-old Lee Min Ho will be, I may still answer if I am already married. But when it is 40 years old, will it still have the same answer in the same way like now ?

 

LH: What is Lee Min Ho’s dream?

Lee Min Ho: "THE KING: The eternal monarch" will be perfectly and smoothly ended. In fact, there are no big dreams or goals. I am more inclined to improvise than to make plans. I am more focused on the present than the future. When I was in elementary school, I dreamed of becoming a football player. After that, I had the goal of becoming an actor. After becoming an actor, I thought about doing well. I thought about success and felt a sense of responsibility. For me, this is a matter of course, I don't want to call them dreams or goals. This state has continued for 15 years. 
If there is a certain goal or dream, it should be the time to get married, have a child, this kind of big changes in life, I suddenly blankly had this idea.

Thank you so much gtLmh0622 -it’s so interesting to get his thoughts on his life and new role. It seems like he is thinking very deeply about a lot of things. It’s comes across as a very honest interview.

I’ve ordered the magazine but as it’s in Korean I am really grateful to read this translation.

You are welcome.

 

Yes, we can see how unpretentious and wise he is through his interviews. That's why I became his fan after watching his interview in 2014. Many C-Minoz call him Philosopher Lee or Teacher Lee for he always said something meaningful.  :)

 

Mr. Jang - the representative of Starhaus said : "When I first met Lee Min Ho, he's just a high school student, but his thought was very deep like a mature man. There were lots of difficulties at the beginning of running the company, but he always trust me. From a new actor to now a top actor, although there were lots of temptation outside, but he never asked something unreasonable while chose to go forward with the company. He is a grateful friend, bringing lots of hopes."

That’s really interesting- is this the same Mr. Jang who started MYM entertainment with LMH’s sister? 
LMH has stayed loyal - and gained loyalty from a lot of people hasn’t he- school friends- his stylist - actors he worked with- directors and script writers as well as his fans of course. What a lovely bloke.

Is he talking about learning English pronunciation and vocalization?

Spoiler

Episode 17- This is one of my favorite episodes in the sense of LMH having several  great acting scenes.. The pain he showed leaving his father in the house because his father did not trust him. The expression in his face. He also looked gorgeous.

I like the scene where he put on earphones in order not to hear SC's thoughts and reassuring her  and had to shout giving him a sore throat, :D. I think he looked so sweet handsome, cute and hilarious in this scene. Cooking her her favorite breakfast.

The scene where he angrily hits Chi Hyun at the front of his home. When he talks with SC and asks her to tell him what her issue is.

Last but not least where he breaks down after finding out that his dad had passed away. He was too late. Heartbreaking. Thought LMH did an excellent job in these scenes and he looked dashing as well...

Yes, he is started MYM with Minho's sister. When Minho went to his first day social service, Mr. Jang also with him. They should be still very close.

No. He's learning Korean pronunciation and vocalization. Because his new character is a king, speaking style may be different from ordinary people.

Thanks a lot, @gtLmh0622 for the translation! The article shows us a glimpse of how LMH has matured and grown as an actor through the years. He's got a great sense of responsibility on his work, and yet still manages to find happiness in the simple things. Can't wait to see his work in "The King"!

LOBS ep 17.

CallieP says about LMH’s great acting in this episode. Interestingly just before I watched it I was browsing through Viki and discovered that they have the 2016 SBS awards when LMH got 3 awards and they also  had the Soompi awards from the same year. Apparently thousands of people vote for these awards and LMH and LOBS won best actor, best couple and best drama. I was really pleased cos I sometimes see such stupid comments on the net about his acting and this was a reminder that there are so many of us who think he is a wonderful actor!

 

Poor JJ in this episode- he had lots to depress him even before his dad died.

His eyes are so incredible they could win an acting award on their own. The tearful despair when his dad wouldn’t believe him, the raging anger with Chi Hyun when his eyes actually looked black, the rather cold stare when he had to lie it on the line with poor Shi-ah, the smiles when he made breakfast and the scene where he realises his dad is dead and his eyes overflowed with tears-sometimes no words are needed.

I’ve also recently rewatched City Hunter as well as following MSdot’s episodes of Faith and I have never seen a more charismatic actor- the camera loves him.

LBS episode 17

Thanks @CallieP and @lindyloo421 for your comments!:D

This was a heavy episode for LMH.  But great job with his display of emotions.  It must have been pretty draining for him.

It was sad when HJJ told the detectives and his friends that his father didn't believe him because he's a conman.  Then to have SC kick him out of the bedroom turned the knife in an open wound.:tears:  I don't think that HJJ's lie was bad since he was protecting her.  

I had to laugh when Det Mimi told his boss that HJJ likes uniforms that's why he was wearing one when he entered his father's house. 

Ouch, I felt bad for Shi Ah when she confessed to HJJ.  At least he was nice when he told her not to wait for him.  

I started tearing up again when HJJ told SC that he would continue to love her even if he died.:bawling:

I couldn't help but to laugh at the comments in Viki when the father left his room, going down the stairs.  Why didn't he just call HJJ?  Doesn't he have any other friends to call for help? 

At least CH has a conscious.  i think he was just hurt because of the father.  I can't say I blame him.

The father's confession came way too late.  Wah, I'm crying with HJJ /LMH.:bawling::bawling:

@Lindyloo421:  I thought LMH was so handsome at the 2016 SBS Awards.  I looked like this :open_mouth: when I saw him.  He always is attractive to me, but sometimes he is simply stunning.

LOTBS, Ep 17

Good acting by all in this episode. Tore me up when HJJ cried when his father died, the sobs came from so deep down. My favorite scene, though, was when he went upstairs and insisted SC tell him what was wrong. Such simple, beautiful confessions of love and tenderness. 

And yes, I agree, the camera does love him and he´s stunningly gorgeous. I don´t think I´ve ever literally gasped at a man´s beauty the way I do when I see some of his pics or scenes. Tonight I was also watching another S. Korea show with JCW, who is also extraordinarily good-looking, good actor, etc. But there is something very special about LMH. In addition to his looks, there´s a certain sweetness and honesty of character that he projects, combined with masculinity. It just sends me.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

 

Poor Jeon Jae when he explained to Det Mimi and friends that his father wouldn't believe him since he's a conman. But it's interesting that Det Mimi is supporting Jeon Jae and even assuring him that he'll get a warrant using all the evidence taken by him - even if he should be aware, as his boss points out, that evidence taken illegally can't be accepted in court. I also laughed at his excuse that Joon Jae likes wearing exterminator's clothing.  :lol:

Looks like he was taken aback by Sim Cheong pushing him away for some space to think about things privately. I love that he grants her wish, even if reluctantly, and sleeps on the sofa instead.
 

c0eNju4.gif

 

iXoz6qZ.gif

 

I even love that he cooks her breakfast and puts on Tae Oh's headphones with blaring music just to reassure her that he can't hear her!
 

BFpC1Ni.gif

 

Good thing that Joon Jae's words triggered suspicions that Dad started throwing away the meds given by stepmom. Too bad stepmom is too cunning, and creepy, she sees Dad throwing away the meds. 

 

Nam Doo sneaking into Sim Cheong's room and even doing some research on the selling value of mermaids just give the creeps. Add to that his Joseon counterpart encountering Ajhussi. Talk about building up intrigue in this show.

 

I can't help but hold my breath when Shi Ah was confessing to Joon Jae. It must be terrifying to do that, and even more heartbreaking to be rejected. But hey, at least Joon Jae was direct to the point and apologized for not saying it sooner.
 

qK851rS.gif

 

I agree, LMH's eyes could get its own acting award! Chi Hyun's face got a good beating with Joon Jae's fist, but Joon Jae's piercing eyes might have done a similar damage.

I like the scene with the serious talk in Sim Cheong's room, too! I admire Joon Jae for giving her time and space, and then later asks her what really is bothering her. Yes, it sucks that he could hear all of her thoughts, but it's not like he asked for it. At least he is aware that communication should be two-way, and so he approached her and had that heartfelt conversation with her.

This is too heartbreaking...Dad got Joon Jae's number on speed dial #1. Unfortunately, Joon Jae's phone is not with him when dad makes that "matter-of-life-and-death" call.

Good thing that Chi Hyun was discerning enough when his mom invites him for drinks. Too bad though, he was a little too late to save his stepdad.

 

Well, regret is always in the end. Hearing dad's voicemail as Joon Jae was rushing towards his dad's house was a brilliant way for the show to build up all the emotions. And so with that dreaded sight of a stretcher carrying the body of Joon Jae's dad, you can't help but feel his intense grief and heartbreak. And if I may add, the world is blessed with LMH's superb acting prowess.

Thank you Syntyche. Hopefully we will get more pictures as the filming progresses.

It feels very exciting.

I mentioned awards in a previous posting and since then I have been looking at SBS awards on YouTube  ( when they have an English sub) and I was  really surprised by his speech when he got the award for Faith. Despite cheers from lots of fans who were there he looked really embarrassed and uncomfortable as though he wanted to cry. I guess this came after the problem of the cast and crew not being paid. (But before the director committed suicide). I really admire LMH watching this- he could easily have just accepted the award and not said anything - but he is always true to himself isn’t he?

LOTBS, Ep 17

Good acting by all in this episode. Tore me up when HJJ cried when his father died, the sobs came from so deep down. My favorite scene, though, was when he went upstairs and insisted SC tell him what was wrong. Such simple, beautiful confessions of love and tenderness. 

And yes, I agree, the camera does love him and he´s stunningly gorgeous. I don´t think I´ve ever literally gasped at a man´s beauty the way I do when I see some of his pics or scenes. Tonight I was also watching another S. Korea show with JCW, who is also extraordinarily good-looking, good actor, etc. But there is something very special about LMH. In addition to his looks, there´s a certain sweetness and honesty of character that he projects, combined with masculinity. It just sends me.

Yes!  There are other actors who are good looking, but they (for me) don’t have that X factor.  He’s like a magnet.  bTW, I’ll miss your posts in the Faith thread☹️

@syntycheI wonder who will reside in that house.  It doesn’t look grandiose enough for a king unless it’s a countryside home.
