Lee Min-ho‘s been planning his leg surgery for a while now and postponed it once or twice; now he’s finally done it. His management revealed in a phone interview on the 14th that the actor is currently at home recovering after having surgery on June 5. He was expected to spend two weeks in the hospital, but recovered faster than expected and was released on the 11th.
Lee Min-ho was in a fairly serious car accident in 2006, after which metal rods were implanted in his upper right leg and knee. The surgery was to remove the rods, which he explained were manageable in everyday life but made it difficult to take on action sequences as an actor.
Now he’s resting up and preparing for an upcoming fanmeeting (a two-parter) on June 21 at Seoul’s Dome Art Hall, which is timed to match (almost) with his 22nd birthday. (His actual birthday is the following day, June 22.) Lee Min-ho has already participated in fansigning and fan events with his Boys Before Flowers crew, but this will be his first solo fanmeeting, called “Minoz Happy Day Mini Concert.”
