Finally, we have news of Lee Min-ho‘s potential next project!
He’s not confirmed for casting, but a rep from his management company said in an interview on the 17th that he is looking favorably at Bad Guy [나쁜 남자], a working title for the new drama from Lee Hyung-min, the PD behind 2004’s melodrama I’m Sorry, I Love You. His rep said, “He plans to make the selection for his next project as quickly as possible, and is looking to decide by the end of this month at the latest.”
Contrasting with his ridiculously rich and pampered Gu Jun-pyo character in the drama that made him famous, Boys Before Flowers, this drama’s hero grew up poor and becomes an action school stuntman. Bad Guy is aiming to hit broadcast airwaves next spring.
Since bursting onto the scene, Lee Min-ho has taken on a number of CFs and endorsement contracts, from mobile phones to beer to clothing and food, but has not taken any acting roles since Boys Before Flowers wrapped in March. If he takes this role, I will be very excited to see him working with a talented director who will show off his actors to their best advantage, unlike what we saw in the insanity (albeit an addictive kind) of Boys. Whether you love or hate Boys, Lee Min-ho was undoubtedly the breakout star, and proved that he has the raw acting talent to go very far — if he makes some smart choices about how to steer his career.
Lee has a Tokyo fanmeeting scheduled for the 26th, and will be leaving for Japan on the 21st.
