SHINee's Minho Talks About Acting Challenges For

SHINee’s Minho took some time to sit down and talk all about his newest drama series “The Fabulous.”

“The Fabulous” is a drama series about the work, passion, romance, and friendships of young men and women who have thrown themselves into the fashion industry. It portrays their struggles to survive in the competitive fashion world and their flamboyant and passionate daily lives in the nation’s trendiest industry.

In this series, Minho stars as Ji Woo Min, a freelance photographer who has the perfect visuals, talent, and fashion sense but lacks passion for what he does. He is joined by Lee Sang Woon, Park Hee Jeong, and Chae Soo Bin, the latter of whom takes on the role of Ji Woo Min’s long-time friend and ex.

In talking about the extremely important kiss scene between his character and Chae Soo Bin’s, Minho commented, “That was the most intense kiss scene I’ve ever done. I had already read the script, and since then I had been really nervous while preparing for filming.”

“Fortunately, Chae Soo Bin was very kind and understanding while we were filming,” he added, sure to give praise where it was due to his co-star. He also noted that this scene took around four or five hours to film, with no corners being cut as the crew prepared a very elaborate and detailed set.

About his relationship with Chae Soo Bin, Minho described how it was a priority for them to become close in order to properly portray the complex relationship between their two characters.

“In order to portray those ambiguous feelings [that come from being friends and exes], I felt that we needed to get close and learn each other’s styles. At first, it was a bit awkward, and we were shy around one another, but we made an effort to get close.” He gives a lot of credit to the drama’s director, Kim Jung Hyun, who did most of the talking to get the ball rolling and make it so that everyone was comfortable around one another. Luckily, it seems that the two actors were able to overcome their initial bashfulness and go on to give amazing performances.

“The Fabulous” is Minho’s first romantic-comedy series since entering his thirties, and he noted how he put effort into focusing on the different emotions and aspects he was able to portray well.

While viewers all around the world are getting immersed in “The Fabulous,” it appears that fellow SHINee member Key also binge-watched the series after its premiere!

“I got a message directly from Key,” Minho said. “Just out of the blue one morning, he [sent me a message] saying ‘Who’s the director?’ So I told him who the director was and asked him, ‘Did you like it? Why?’ I didn’t get a reply after that, and I kept wondering to myself why he asked such a thing. I still don’t know the reason.”

“I don’t know if he wants to be in Kim Jung Hyun’s next project or what reasoning he had to ask, but it’s odd that he asked about the director,” he said with a laugh. “He still hasn’t read my message. He’s always been like that. He hasn’t sent replies for over 10 years,” he added.

“The Fabulous” is now streaming on Netflix.
