Rocker dreams come true for Lee Min-ki
Lee Min-ki (Mixed-up Investigative Agency, Dal Ja’s Spring) is finally going to realize his long-held dream of being a singer (rocker, more like) on November 15 at the 2008 Mnet KM Music Festival (MKMF).
Lee Min-ki reportedly fell in love with the guitar ten years ago and has dreamed of playing in a rock band ever since. He’s picked an odd choice of song for his performance — Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” — but will be giving the material his own stylistic spin as he performs with a band made up of friends.
As though that weren’t enough, Lee is going all-out (ya only debut your rocker dreams once?) with dramatic costuming and thick makeup, leading one MKMF rep to promise that we’ll be seeing a “completely different side to the Lee Min-ki we know… He’s already begun training in earnest for the past month, practicing constantly whenever he has spare time.”
MKMF will take place on the 15th at Seoul’s Jamsil Stadium and will be broadcast live from 7pm to 11pm on Mnet, KM, tvN and Olive, also airing simultaneously in Japan and China.
