Watch: Lee Min Ho Is Full Of Affection For His Horse Co-Star Maximus In “The King: Eternal Monarch”
Lee Min Ho has shared a cute behind-the-scenes video from the set of SBS’s “The King: Eternal Monarch!”
Uploaded to his own YouTube channel, the video shows Lee Min Ho bonding with his equine co-star, Maximus. The actor has previously talked about his affection for his special co-star in an interview.
The video opens with beautiful shots of Lee Min Ho being a literal prince on a white steed, riding into the sunset, through a sunlit forest, and other scenes befitting his role as Emperor Lee Gon. As the video proceeds, Lee Min Ho can be seen affectionately petting the horse between takes, gazing into his eyes, and feeding him candy.
At one point, the actor is confused when Maximus (with Lee Min Ho on his back) pulls his head down to nibble at some leaves on the ground. Then he just laughs and says, “Why is he eating leaves?”
The PD asks him, “Do you think your horse is the only one that listens?” and Lee Min Ho quipped, “The important thing is who is doing the driving.” When the PD asks, “Is it fun to ride a horse for two days?”, Lee Min Ho replies, “Is it fun? Do you want to try it?”

“The King: Eternal Monarch” airs on Fridays and Saturdays at 10 p.m. KST.
