About Lee Min Ho

Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor, singer, and model represented by MYM Entertainment. Lee Min Ho began acting in his sophomore year of high school and joined Starhaus Entertainment in his senior year. He obtained minor roles in various television shows after receiving training. He used his stage name, Lee Min, early in his career because his agency thought his birth name was too common. He reverted to his birth name because it was sounded and written the same as the Korean word for 'immigration,' making him impossible to find on the internet.

His breakout role, and the one he is best known for, occurred in 2009 when he was cast as the lead, Gu Jun Pyo, in 'Boys Over Flowers'. He was also named Best New Actor at the 45th Baeksang Arts Awards. He appeared in the drama 'Pachinko' in 2021 for which he had to audition for the part for the first time in 13 years.

‘Personal Taste’, ‘City Hunter’, ‘Faith’, ‘The Heirs’, and ‘The Legend of the Blue Sea’ are among his major starring performances in television series. His role for his performance in Studio Dragon's The King: Eternal Monarch in 2020 got fans gushing over his visuals. Aside from his television career, he played the first starring role in the 2015 film Gangnam Blues. Following this, he also got his first China-produced feature, Bounty Hunters, and the mini-romance-web series Line Romance. His television series' success positioned him as a top Hallyu star; he is the most followed South Korean actor on social media. Lee Min Ho was the first Korean celebrity to have a Madame Tussauds wax figure created in his likeness, with figures exhibited in Shanghai in 2013, and Hong Kong in 2014.
