Lee Min Ho ♥ 이민호 ♥ ィミンホ ♥ 李敏鎬

Recommended Posts

Drama looks like a sureshot blockbuster. What a project he chose for comeback. Kim eun sook knows who are bankable male leads. Even if she is top writer she still needs top A list actors to sell her drama throughout asia and lmh brings sales to drama as well as advertisements plus ratings. I hope its peak ratings touch 30% and become abother global phenomenon of year like CLOY.  

His look has become rough which i always liked over his flowerboy look during heirs era. I feel his next step will be movies after drama.

Previous reports say that he has been learning pronunciation and delivery for this role. Seems like we are hearing now the results!

Such good news. All those haters who bash him for his acting should knows thid. When an actor adds new accent dialects,  it shows thier skill as an actor.

" The King : Eternal Monarch " announced that the drama will premiere in April as a new SBS drama. As a result, it has been confirmed as a successor to the currently airing " Hyena."

 

Meanwhile, the first teaser for " The King : Eternal Monarch " was released on the 28th. The 30-second teaser also features Lee Min-ho, who says, " I'm the emperor of the Korean Empire and my name is Lee Gon. " An overwhelming display of aura.

Soon after the first teaser was released, ' The King : Eternal Monarch ' cheered many fans who had been waiting for the drama. Although the teaser was short, the interest in it was literally huge. Few dramas get this much response just from the teaser. It is a testament to the keen interest of " The King : Eternal Monarch".

Hi- just wanted to say a big thank you to gtLmh0622 and Syntyche for keeping us up to date with English translations of all the great news about The King.

 

I agree with what was said here about Dramabeans- I thought it was better when Girl Friday and Javabeans owned it but apparently they had to hand it over to others as they also had to work full time. I’m also a bit reluctant to read Koala as there are some anti LMH people who comment negatively every time and even bring his name into things that aren’t even about him. I’ve been  watching a few other drama whilst waiting for The King but even if I am not keen on one or two of the leads I wouldn’t dream of going onto a website and being horrible about them- especially knowing how upset  I get when people write negative things about LMH.
 

Not long to go now!
Stay safe everyone.

Don't go to koalas and such other blogs. . it is filled with his ex's fans, rivals fans who keep bashing him. We don't need anyone's approval for his success and skills. He keeps topping govt polls and is considered as face of second hallyu wave and till to this day he remains most popular korean actor overseas. We have nothing to prove to anyone.

This drama's success will speak for itself. He is already slaying in teaser and i hope it becomes huge success. I have trust in both writer and lee min ho to create another huge show! And people say he doesn't do diverse roles. He has done faith , city hunter, movies with diverse roles. Just his most popular roles  become phenomenon and who doesn't wants success? If he gets best writers and dramas, he will do it. Who doesn't want it? Will he reject kim eun sook to do some low budget artsy drama to satisfy some people? Lol! Their fave don't get such dramas years after years, so bitterness shows up.  Who doesn't want advertisements after such successful drama or future big projects? They are just bitter than even after 11 years since boys over flowers, he remains as popular as he was during 2009 to 2016. And topped government poll again..

“The King: Eternal Monarch” Starring Lee Min Ho & Kim Go Eun Secures Premiere Date

Wielding immense anticipation from K-Drama fans, The King: Eternal Monarch is finally set for a Spring airdate

Garnering raves after releasing its teaser video recently, the Kim Eun Sook drama hypes the excitement by slating its official broadcast schedule.

 

5a6b9f7c-a853-4b28-8123-8ed7565a48c2.jpg

 

On February 29, star writer Kim Eun Sook announced that the eagerly-awaited fantasy-romance drama will begin in April 2020. No specified date has been revealed yet.

Previously, SBS unveiled a teaser featuring Lee Min Ho to the delight of its anticipating fans. The quick video trailer introduces the character of the actor with a peerless gaze and enigmatic aura.

Powerhouse Cast & Creative Team

Reuniting with the esteemed writer, both lead stars of the series have worked with Kim Eun Sook before. Lee Min Ho starred in youth romance drama, The Inheritors. 

 

Notably, writer Kim has produced acclaimed and top-rating series including: Mr. Sunshine, A Gentleman’s Dignity, City Hall and Lovers in Paris.

Interestingly, Kim is also set to collaborate again with PD Baek Sang Hoon. They worked together in runaway hit romance series – Descendants of the Sun. Director Baek includes Love in the Moonlight, Who are You: School 2015 and Secret Love to his portfolio.

 

Billed to be one of the highly-anticipated dramas of 2020, The King: Eternal Monarch boasts an impressive cast lineup. 

Based on the initial story sketch, the series features two settings following its parallel universe concept. It is also billed to showcase romantic moments for the main leads.

Set to play dual roles, Lee Min Ho suits up as Korean emperor. He is trying to close the dimension to ward off the villain intent to wreak havoc in the kingdom he leads. His other character in the parallel world struggles to protect the people he loves from the projected antagonist.

cr: to owner.  Couldn't find any videos of Mackerel run so I pasted a photo of a mackerel 

Spoiler

MACKEREL RUN EP 8

finally our short run of Mackerel run comes to end along with our drama rewatch.  Thanks again for everyone who participated.  Geez, we just had enough of his projects to make it through 3 long years.  

Chung Ah is so cute.  Haha  the only replacement for Baek Hyun is Gong Chan.  The director is so unreasonable.  It's not like they are getting married.  She's awfully childish for someone her age and in her position.  Gong Chan is smart to allow Yoon Seo see Baek Hyun alone.  Poor Gong Chan, he has no clue what is coming:bawling:.  I'm glad Sae Mi became a bigger person and made up with Yoon Seo.  The director beame a little more likeable when she said good bye to Yoon seo.  How sweet and unusual couple mackerel necklaces haha.  

I like how they wrapped things up with this final episode; the kids much more mature than the adults.  In the end, I'm glad that I finally watched the drama.  Now I wonder what they had planned if this drama had its full run.  

The best thing... well next to best thing (the best of course is seeing LMH in a drama!) is we don't have to figure out what to do while waiting for The King.  I had really wanted to save the favorites game until after the King and now we can!  I do think we need something to pass time in March.  Should we post the good day series or the trivial question game?  I think nothing is needed in april, since we'll be going crazy counting the days and we'll see more teasers, trailers etc.  Thoughts?

@CarolynH  It does make you wonder what the original story plan was, but I think they ended it well, considering it was cut short. 

 

Watching this highlights for me a major reason I am a LMH fan, and that is that he started out like many others and worked and learned and made himself better and better.  He was not just handed super-stardom.  I feel like a proud parent watching my child grow and mature and succeed, and with dignity and class.  :lol:

 

For anyone interested in watching another LMH oldie while you wait, you can watch Get Up (a TV movie from 2008) on YouTube.

 

But I Don't Know too (나도 잘 모르지만)

2020/02/28 Korea Tourism Organization updated :

[Korea] What do Foreigners Think of Korea?

 

2649043_1_1.jpg

 

Survey respondents picked President Moon and BTS as the most leading public figures of Korea. In addition, the best image that represents Korea was K-pop and Korean singers.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports, & Tourism and the Korean Culture and Information Service (KOCIS) conducted this survey from July to August in 2019. 8,000 foreigners from 16 countries, including Korea, answered questions such as, “Who comes to mind when you think of Korea?”, “What image best represents Korea?”, and “What keyword defines Korea?”

In the public figure poll, President Moon (7.9%) ranked first followed by BTS (5.5%), actor Lee Min-ho (4.3%), actress Song Hye-kyo (4.1%), and singer Psy (3.6%).

In the national image poll, K-pop and Korean singers (12.5%) ranked first followed by Korean food & food products (8.5%) and Korean culture & cultural heritage (6.5%). Furthermore, respondents answered that popular culture (37.8%) as the keyword that defines Korea, followed by economy (16.8%), national security (13.9%), and cultural heritage (10.5%).

 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

It's amazing that K-drama is not in the Top 5 images of Korea, but LMH and SHK ranked in 3rd and 4th of representative of Korea. :)

Problem is there is no subtitles, I did watch the drama on YouTube and thought it was pretty good.

Yay! Confirmed King is showing in April after all. Bonus for us, don't have to wait till July.

@gtLmh0622Is there still a Hallyu ban in China? So probably the Chinese will watch on an illegal site.

Glad there is a lot of interest in the drama. Fingers cross for a big success. Kim Eun Sook works her magic again.

It's nice to see Gong Chan finally get his dream girlfriend. Happy boy, he is.
 

JU9QcW8.gif

 

He's understanding enough to bring Yoon Seo to the hospital and talk privately to Baek Hyun. For a kid his age, he already has some maturity.

 

But still largely a boy at heart, when he sees the pair of football shoes, as well as the mackerel necklace, and the way he feels giddy about Yoon Seo writing manwha (anime).

Yes, I admire Sae Mi too, for being a bigger person and practically stepping back to give a chance to the relationship of Yoon Seo and Gong Chan. But she still admires Gong Chan 'til the end.

It's tough to be put in Yoon Seo's position where she had to give up Gong Chan for him to return to football. I just thought she should have not kept him in the dark about her moving across the world. Good thing Sae Mi was smart enough not to follow her and tell Gong Chan anyway.

I see some growth in Gong Chan's character. He seems sure now of what he wants and has a plan on how to accomplish it.

Okay, good for Baek Hyun for maturing up a bit too, and having that adult conversation with Gong Chan.

My favorite scene of the episode is when he was looking for Yoon Seo and had that closeup shot while crying. No words uttered; his facial expressions are enough to convey the emotions of the scene. I see the potential of a dramatic actor, which we now see in his dramas after Mackerel Run.

Yes, there is still a Hallyu ban in China. And yes, they will watch on illegal sites.


News reported that President Xi Jinping would visit South Korea in the first half of 2020. Maybe Hallyu ban will be inactive after his visiting. But "The King" will be aired just in next month............  :(

LMH fan account:

 

But... on my way home from work... What's going on...? I saw Lee Min-ho At first, I passed by without thinking, but the tall person next to me was walking, so I was wondering who it was. Actor Lee Minho wearing a long padded jacket...!!!!!!! I was really surprised. I looked next to you again, thinking maybe... Really, Lee Minho... Awesome... I thought it would be embarrassing to scream, so I just looked sideways, walked, watched, walked...

 

IMG_1493.JPG?type=w800

 

IMG_1491.jpg?type=w800

 

And I walked slowly! So that I can capture actor Lee Min-ho even from the back!!!

 

IMG_1499.JPG?type=w800

 

There must have been a commercial shoot in front of Gwanghwamun! You must be cold. Fighting! For the first time in my life, I walked next to an actor... It's so amazing...

 

IMG_1496.jpg?type=w800

 

How can a face be so small? I wanted to ask you to take a picture. Hmm.. I just let you go because you looked so tired... We stayed still for five minutes in front of the crosswalk... (Managers and stylists weren't next to us...) We must have been at the ad site in advance!

 

Anyway, I should've said hello for five minutes.Oh, come on. Now that I think about it, I regret it! I am so touched that I could see actor Lee Minho next to me. I hope you will thrive this year.^^

Pity, the viewings which will be phenomenal will not be recorded or made money from since it is illegal sites.

Love your review @syntyche

Episode 8, LMH was really cute and young in this episode, he really excels in this episode too, no stupid scenes, his total excitement at being able to play football and having his dream girl, you can just feel his happiness for a few days, being understanding and letting Hyun have some time with Yeon Seo. His buying the mackerel locket for her and getting the football shoes and excited that Yeon Seo wanting to buy it for him. HIs acting is just so natural. I also loved his shocked look when he knew who her mom was and when she asked him to play football, love his astonished look, also at the end when he teared up saying bye to Yeon Seo and not try to stop her but promising to meet.

 

Ratings would have been good if the director was not so inept. The story was good, the actors were mostly good especially the students. Pity, ratings caused the drama to end early. This episode was a bitter sweet love story but they understood the mom's opposition and planned to meet once they finish schools and are adults so there is only good things to look forward too. They solved their own problems. Hyun, Sae Mi doing the right thing, all very positive. You believe that they would end up with each other after all. If Gong Chan becomes a famous footballer, the mom would approve of their match. I like that they said goodbye.

 

I saw this previously and did like it overall especially most of LMH's acting. Liked his funny faces too.

Lee Min Ho starrer drama The King: Eternal Monarch to premiere in April; get all details here

 

Lee Min Ho will be returning to the small screen after four years with the new SBS drama, The King: Eternal Monarch, that is scheduled to premiere in April.

With little more than a month left for the premiere of Lee Min Ho's comeback drama The King: Eternal Monarch, SBS has released new details about the show – including the air dates and the first teaser. The historical fantasy thriller will probably air its first episode on April 18 and the story may begin with the introduction of King Lee Gon if the first glimpse video is to go by.

 

The 30-second-long clip introduces the lead protagonist to viewers. In the video, the character is featured addressing viewers through a voiceover as he says: "I am the emperor of the Korean Empire, and my name is Lee Gon." Though the teaser video shows only four shots of Lee Min Ho, his fans world-wide were really excited to see him back on screens after four years.

 

Immediately after watching the short clip, admirers of Lee Min Ho across the globe started flooding social media platforms with messages about his new project. The messages ranged from "Everyone! Make way for the king of kdramas, finally he is officially back" to "All Hail King Lee Gon! The Hallyu King is finally here to claim back his throne!"

 

Watch the teaser video below:

 

 

 

When will The King: Eternal Monarch premiere on SBS?

The broadcasting channel is yet to announce the air date for its upcoming historical fantasy thriller. But an industry insider stated that episode 1 is scheduled to air on SBS in April during the evening time slot of Friday-Saturday dramas. Currently, legal drama Hyena is airing in this time slot and the new drama will probably air a week after the finale of Hyena i.e., on April 18.

 

"The King: Eternal Monarch has confirmed its broadcast schedule for April, and will be officially folding into [preparations]. Please look forward the story about parallel worlds from Kim Eun Sook, how she will write the story in a new way, and how it breaks out of the boundaries of standard fantasy romances," a source told Soompi.

People from various parts of the globe could also stream the show online for free through the official website of the broadcasting channel. Non-Korean speaking areas will have to wait a little longer to watch the show with English subtitles.

 

The King: Eternal Monarch is written by popular screenwriter Kim Eun Seok and directed by Baek Sang Hoon. It revolves around the life of Emperor Lee Gon and his relationship with detective Jung Tae Eul. Apart from Lee Min Ho, the romantic fantasy thriller features Kim Go Eun and Woo Do Hwan in lead roles.
