Lee Min Ho - MBC Drama Awards 30.12.2011

Lee Min Ho was presenting the Excellence Award (Mini-series Actor & Actress) with Lee So Yeon at MBC Drama Awards 2011

Translation on opening dialogue (based on c-sub by 瘋狂的貧道@weibo)

LSY: There is continuous acclaim since Lee Min Ho appears on stage. Since “Personal Taste” last year, found that you have always created different images/ characters in drama. Do you have plans to play a role in MBC drama next year?

LMH: Up till now there is no concrete plan yet. What kind of character do you think it fits me?

LSY: How about choosing one of the character from MBC dramas this year?

LMH: There are a lot of good dramas & characters from MBC this year. Choose only one would be a very difficult decision.

LSY: Then how about Dok Gu Jin in “Best Love”?

LMH: That’s a character that can make people happy and is very charismatic, it is really very attractive to an actor. If I play this role, I think it won’t be that popular as Cha Seung Won sunbae did.

LSY: Lee Min Ho is very humble~

LMH: How about Lee So Yeon ssi? Which character in MBC drama is the most attractive to you?

LSY: Actually I also love the drama “Best Love”, that kind of cute character played by Gong Hyo Jin is very attractive to me.

LMH: I think you can also handle that kind of character very well.

LSY: Thank you

Lee Min Ho receives casting offer to work with Andy Lau

Actor Lee Min Ho‘s popularity is on the rise, as seen by the numerous casting offers he’s been receiving from producers in China.

His most recent work proposal was for a production with top star Andy Lau. A representative stated, “Lee Min Ho’s most recent love call was a piece with Andy Lau. If he were to accept it, then this piece would surpass [the borders of] Asia and become a global project. Lee Min Ho is very popular in China. He probably has more popularity than most idol stars. There has been quite a competition on casting the star.”

Thanks to his hit drama ‘City Hunter‘, Lee Min Ho has been receiving a ton of invitations for fantasy and action pieces. Last July, famous Hong Kong and American film producer Terrance Chang made a surprise visit to the set of ‘City Hunter’ just for Lee Min Ho.

Lee Min Ho’s agency stated, “It is true Lee Min Ho has been receiving a lot of casting calls from China. However nothing is confirmed. We will make a decision after careful thinking and planning.”

The Sky's the Limit for Lee Min Ho! Impending Chinese/Hollywood Debut?

Lee Min Ho’s recent meeting with Andy Lau, a popular singer, actor, and film producer in Hong Kong, is garnering a lot of attention from both the press and netizens. Through dramas like “Boys Over Flowers” and “City Hunter,” Lee Min Ho has become a household name in China and elsewhere. Recently, he met with thousands of his Chinese fans during his “2011 Asia Tour Fan Meeting” in Shanghai and Beijing. Therefore, it doesn’t come as a surprise to hear that Lee Min Ho has been receiving several love calls from Chinese producers. Out of the several projects he’s been offered, one stands out because it stars the legendary Andy Lau.

A source stated, “One of the projects sent to Lee Min Ho for consideration stars Andy Lau. If Lee Min Ho accepts, this will be a global project, something that will go beyond Asia.” He added, “Lee Min Ho’s popularity in China is unimaginable. His fan base is almost as large as some of the most popular idol stars. As a result, the competition to cast Lee Min Ho in their projects is extremely fierce.

A representative of StarHaus Entertainment stated, “It’s true that we've been receiving countless offers from China. However, we have not made a final decision on any project. We will make our decision after carefully considering each offer.”

Lee Min Ho has received various offers from Chinese producers – ranging from fantasy martial arts to investigative action-filled projects. Some of these works include other famous Chinese actors, besides Andy Lau, as well. Back in July, Hong Kong/American film producer Terence Chang personally visited the set of “City Hunter” to meet with Lee Min Ho. Almost half a year has passed since “City Hunter” ended, but Lee Min Ho’s popularity and recognition only continues to soar.

Lee Min Ho to appear on Chinese ‘new year special’ program

Actor Lee Min Ho will appear on the Chinese program, “Que-Rak-Dae-Bon-Young”(Happy Camp 快樂大本營), for a ‘new year special’ program.

Lee’s agency, Starhaus Entertainment, said that Chinese Honam satellite broadcasting (Hunan TV 湖南衛視) will air a 90 minute long special program exclusively about Lee. This is quite a surprise, considering that the program normally casts three guests for the standard 60 minute long episodes.

Lee bought lacquerware inlaid with mother-of-pearl in Korea and gave it to the MC for the show with a new year greeting card. He also gave each audience member a traditional Korean wicker scoop, which is known for bringing good luck.

According to a Chinese media outlet, over 1,500 fans came to see Lee and they watched the show while sitting on the floor. Thousands of fans also gathered outside of the building.

Usually the shooting is free but for Lee’s program, there were illegal tickets, which cost 30 thousand won to a million won.

The producer for the show posted a note on his Weibo account, “Thank you everyone, including the entire crew, audience and today’s star. I had a great show thanks to Lee. I met a handsome man, from any angle, for the first time. Who else is going to make the staff scream for joy, other than Lee?”

The show is very popular, and has hundreds of millions viewers.

Lee Min Ho sings for 10,000 fans in China

Earlier this month, actor Lee Min Ho stole the hearts of 10,000 fans while on his ‘2011 Asia Tour Fan Meeting‘ in Shanghai and Beijing.

The concept of Lee Min Ho’s fan meet was ‘fantastical musical’, and so the star delivered an entertaining, if not unique experience for his fans, who flew in from Korea, Singapore, the Philippines, and Japan.

The opening stage saw Lee Min Ho descend into the concert hall from wires attached to the ceiling, much like a scene straight out of his drama, ‘City Hunter‘. He then put on an impressive acting scene before going on to perform “My Everything” from the ‘Boys Over Flowers‘ special album.

For his next stage, Lee Min Ho dressed in a sleek black suit before performing the Beatles‘ “Yesterday” and “I Will” with a band. Fans even got to see him show off his dance skills with a Michael Jackson silhouette parody.

Through simple games, the star interacted with his fans, gifting them with personal presents he had brought from Korea. Perhaps the most touching moment was when he sat before a piano and played a few songs, before taking out letters he had written for his fans and reading them out loud.

The finale unveiled Lee Min Ho’s two new songs, which he had worked on with composer Hwang Chan Hee. One of the songs was a medium-tempo rock track called “Say Yes“.

Representatives stated, “While spending meaningful time with his fans on the Asia tour, he is also discussing other dramas to take on since concluding ‘City Hunter’.”
