In the accompanying interview, Lee Min Ho talked about the status afforded him as one of the “four new Hallyu kings,” including fellow actors Kim Soo Hyun, Kim Woo Bin, and Lee Jong Suk. He said, “I think being fixed in a single image is not a good thing for anyone. I sometimes feel like it’s a bit too much, us being only labeled as Hallyu actors. On the other hand, the fact that we, as young actors, are linked by this, making our own image, is something to be energized by as well.”
When asked if this isn’t about the age (28) when people are usually dating a lot, Lee Min Ho said, “I don’t have the time to focus on or fall in love. I want to fall in love, but if I had a girlfriend now, I would feel like we were just casually dating rather than really in love.”
The actor also has a movie coming up soon, entitled “Gangnam 1970,” on which he said he wanted to take on a more serious role, and that viewers will be able to see a side of him never seen before on screen. “Gangnam 1970” is an action noir film about the turmoils regarding the Gangnam district’s real estate craze of the 1970′s, where Lee Min Ho takes on the role of a gangster.
The full interview and photo shoot can be seen in the November issue of High Cut.
