Lee Min Ho remains to be one of the most talked about South Korean actors today even after a two-year hiatus. Most fans can recall that the former boyfriend of Suzy Bae had to, temporarily, stay away from the limelight for his mandatory military service. Now that he is back in the entertainment scene, avid followers continue to show their unwavering support for the City Hunter actor.
Just recently, Lee Min Ho was sighted at the Berluti's Summer 2020 menswear show at the Luxembourg Gardens. The ex-boyfriend of Suzy Bae was seen wearing a gray-colored leather coat, a marble shirt, and a Scritto suit. Devoted supporters of Legend of the Blue Sea star even sang a Happy Birthday song for his 32nd birthday.
Photos of Lee Min Ho, surrounded by his fans, made rounds online. The former lover of Suzy Bae was all-smile as he responds to photo requests and fan signs. The Heirs actor even had an Instagram live broadcast during his birthday. He also shared a snap of him in the middle of the presents he got for his 32nd birthday.
"If I turn on an Instagram live, do all my followers get a notification?" Lee Min Ho asked after reading some comments from his viewers at the time. It was the very first time that Suzy Bae's former beau had used the feature since his military discharge. His live broadcast had a total of 60,000 viewers from various countries worldwide.
In May, Lee Min Ho was confirmed to reunite with his former co-worker in The Heirs for a brand new project. Hwa&Dam Pictures revealed that the 32-year-old Hallyu superstar and writer Kim Eun Soon would be working together in the upcoming The King: The Eternal Monarch series, which is scheduled to premiere some time in 2020. Baek Sang Hoon would direct the imminent new television show.
"This is our second time working together after 'Heirs,'" Hwa&Dam Pictures said in an official statement announcing Lee Min Ho's newest project. "This is because he is an actor we can trust. You can expect to see more mature and deeper acting from Lee Min Ho in 'The King: The Eternal Monarch,'" the company went on.
Spoilers have it that The King: The Eternal Monarch series would center on the story of an emperor of the Korean Empire and a detective of the Republic of Korea that seek to protect their respective worlds. Kim Ge Eun, Woo Do Hwan, and Kim Kyung Nam would join Min Ho in his forthcoming new project. At the moment, the Boys over Flower star is enjoying his free time traveling as he waits for the official start of his new job.
