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.”
