Lee Min-ho released from hospital, plans fanmeeting
by | June 14, 2009 | 45 Comments

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.”

    I wish a great fanmeeting for him.Btw JB,why you used username ‘javabeans’?Is there any relation with ‘javanesse’?(just curious).

  3. Hallyudorama

    I’m glad he’s doing well after the surgery. Min Ho is one of the most if not the most exciting actor of his generation. I hope he chooses his future acting projects well. All the best for him on his birthday. Saeng il chu ka hae!

    Great way to take a break from studying Chemistry..
    Opening up Dramabeans and finding a nice article on (and picture of) Lee Min Ho. Hahaha. Thanks javabeans (:

  6. Nanae123

    aww… it is nice to hear that he is recovering… hope he will take part on another drama soon…

    these actors in Korea have too many fan meetings! something contrasting with Hollywood.

    Btw does any1 know a japanese entertainment blog website that’s similar to dramabeans…covering drama actors,k-ent industry, drama stuff &movies etc…. I have been searching but haven’t seen any with as much info or stuff as dramabeans =O

  8. otk

    I mean j-ent industry *

  9. Sonam

    I miss his curls!

    Yeah, I can understand why he put off the surgery for so long. I mean it would have been ridiculous if he would have done that during the whole Boys over Flowers shooting and signings, etc…

  11. 11 jdb

    He should have taken the surgery beforehand and do it for health reason and not because of flexibility in work. That was a serious injury and shouldn’t be taken too slightly. Good his able to recover speedily.

    mb thats why his dancing is awful in that cass beer advert??

    Well, if he works this hard.. it won’t be long before he’s going in again.
    Are they afraid that if he won’t show his face to the public for a few weeks or months, he’ll be forgotten or something? He’s everywhere these days. He deserves more than just 2 weeks rest.

    I never get how these actor/ess endure their busy schedules and still manage to put on a smile.

  14. 14 Andromytta

    I agree w/anna! He deserves more than a couple of weeks off! How do they do it and still maintain their charm? Way to go, Lee Min Ho! Wow, that rhymed…kewl…I’m a poet! *lol*

    Let me also take a moment to shamelessly plug my fan fiction, Boys Over Flowers After Shinhwa High. Chapters six & seven are up.

    After a long much-needed rest, I hope he will be starting a new drama. He is such a fine young actor. I’d love to see him in more challenging roles.

  16. 16 kimchigeol

    Hurrah! 🙂

    I hope he’s still coming over to the Philippines *dreamy sigh*

    I wonder what his next acting project would be…

  17. 17 greemzey

    that must have been scary.
    hoping for your fastest recovery.

    and advance happy birthday.

    wishing you the best.

    by the way, does anybody know what’s he’s latest or upcoming project (s)? I have read that Kim Bum’s really busy now. How about Min Ho? (Though I don’t expect him to be really on the go right now since he has just recently undergone an operation, but any pending acting projects?)
