London Olympics parody photos of Lee Min Ho causes laughter

Various London Olympics parody photos of Lee Min Ho became a hot topic after they were released.

Lee Min Ho’s agency, Starhaus Entertainment, posted on July 30th of all the London Olympics parody photos of Lee Min Ho made by fans.

As shown in the parody photos, Lee Min Ho ‘participated’ in the London Olympics from 12 different sports categories such as soccer, swimming, track, boxing, fire shooting, horseback riding, archery, etc. One particular photo showed him fencing while wearing a warrior suit which brought laughter because the outfit that he was wearing was for his upcoming drama, ‘The Faith.’

Not only were there photos of his face photoshopped on an actual athlete’s body, but also actual photos of him or photos from his previous work which brought more attention.

Another photo of him brightly kicking a soccer ball was actually from one of his previous dramas, ‘Boys Over Flower,’ and other photos were found from ‘City Hunter’ and ‘Running Mackerel.’

Lee Min Ho posted, “As being one of the nation’s people, I’m rather proud of our Taegeuk Warriors who are participating in the London Olympics,” and also added, “I will do my best to win the gold medal from the viewers through my new drama as an actor.”

On the other hand, the upcoming drama ‘The Faith’ will be about a female doctor who gets kidnapped by a Koryo warrior. The drama will have actor Lee Min Ho and actress Kim Hee Sun playing the main leads, and this will also be Kim Hee Sun’s comeback drama after 6 years since her last drama appearance.

Lee Min Ho’s fans showed their love for their star by putting together an Olympic parody to help promoteFaith.

The image, which was uploaded on Faith’s official webpage, makes it seem as if Lee Min Ho will be competing in almost every event.

The image shows Lee Min Ho competing in 12 events, including soccer, swimming, athletics, boxing, shooting, equestrian and archery. He was even shown as an athlete for fencing in Goryeo-style warrior attire, just as he will be appearing in Faith.

An official from Lee Min Ho’s agency said, “The photos that were used for the image aren’t even edits, but actual pictures or screencaps of Lee Min Ho. The image showing him kicking a soccer ball with his firm leg muscles, reminiscent of soccer player Ki Sung Yueng, is a scene from Boys over Flowers, and the other images are also from his pieces City Hunter or Mackerel Run.”

Although he swims, runs, shoots and rides as if he was a real athlete, it seems he didn’t do well in canoeing because he ‘couldn’t hold back his bad temper as Boys over Flowers’ Gu Jun Pyo.

Fans couldn’t hide their amusement with comments such as, ‘I’m surprised Lee Min Ho was in so many events’ and ‘I thought he said he said he would see gold as stone; what’s with the gold medal?’

Lee Min Ho’s real ‘Olympics’ start on the day after the London Olympics end, August 13. The actor aims to make his fourth success out of his first ever period piece Faith.

Lee Min Ho said, “I’m proud of our athletes in the London Olympics as a Korean. I also will work hard to win the gold medal in viewership ratings as an actor.”
