Lee Min Ho, who was appointed as the honorary ambassador of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics last year, recently sat down with @star1 to talk about the position as well as his upcoming drama “Legend of the Blue Sea” (tentative title), in which he stars with Jun Ji Hyun.
“It will have been 30 years since the Seoul Olympics in 1988. I have a lot of pride, holding a global event like the Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Pyeongchang, known for its scenery. Regardless of the ambassador position, as a Korean, I’m proud,” said Lee Min Ho.
The actor said he wants to introduce Korea and Pyeongchang to the world through the Olympics, and hopes the athletes will be able to perform well without any injuries.
When asked about his upcoming drama “Legend of the Blue Sea,” Lee Min Ho says he’s really excited for it. “I’m looking forward to it too. The fact that I’m even appearing in the same project as Jun Ji Hyun is a huge honor. I’m looking forward to it a lot, and I can’t hide my excitement.”
Leaving a short message for fans, Lee Min Ho said, “I sincerely thank everyone for their unwavering support. The words ‘thank you’ can’t begin to express how I feel. My fans are like old friends of mine. Friends that, by their existence alone, are a comfort. I hope we can be together for a long time.
