Lee Min-ho stills and candid photos from Faith

Not much to say about this Faith post, other than Lee Min-ho pretty. Or is that also unnecessary, being an obvious truth of the universe?

In any case, here are the latest stills; the first couple come from the production, and the last couple were posted by Lee on his twitter account. He’s dressed as his Goryeo-era warrior character, Choi Young, who serves the king and falls in love with the time-traveling heroine from the future (Kim Hee-sun). Sounds familiar, I know, but the teaser actually reminded me of why I enjoyed writer Song Jin-ah’s Legend, with its pseudo-mythical-historical fusion world and grandiose atmosphere.

In fact, Faith feels much closer to what I think of when you say “fantasy drama” — where fantasy is the genre, that is, not just an adjective. There have been a lot of dramas in recent years with fantasy elements that don’t necessarily fit that genre (say, Rooftop Prince or Secret Garden or 49 Days or Queen In-hyun’s Man). Whereas Legend had dragons and gods and epic, massive battles and an intricate internal mythology. If this drama can do that — and with the same writer and PD, why not? — and also incorporate some of writer Song’s twisty plotting (Story of a Man) and complex character relationships (Sandglass), I’m all set.

Or, you know, I can just watch slack-jawed over Lee Min-ho.

Faith premieres on August 13 and will be a Monday-Tuesday drama.

Another time-traveling drama? hmm... And I just noticed the female lead is 35, I understand now why she looked a little older next to Lee min ho. Well, maybe the chemistry is going to work just fine.

Not digging the hair, either. His mane of glory is too perfectly coiffed for a warrior. How can he chop down anyone with them highlighted bangs and disarrayed curls constantly in his face?

Thank you! I am also not digging the hair! Its basically Gu Jun pyo hair with a ponytail! Hope to see him in a smooth top not at some point. Lee Min ho please say no to the perm!!

Kind of preferred his hair in the first episode (or two) of CH. I think it's the wavy-ness that doesn't work for me -makes me think of his hair in BoF!

agreed. my goodness, that Gu Junpyo really didn't do it for me. The badass hair in City Hunter? Works for me!

reply

The hair is not bad but I laughed a little at the photo because who knew that Goryeo-era hair was highlighted? Min-Ho's mane of glory will never match Gu-Roh's but he can pull it off. Though I have to admit it looks a little like the jun pyo perm grown out...

HA. *dead* My theory is that he is actually Gu Jun Pyo, who finally left Jan Di (took him long enough!) and wanted to escape from her to Goree (the island), but being Jun Pyo, he messed up the name and ended up in Goryeo (the era). He's become wiser, but not less vain, hence the hairdo. The End.

Legend wasnt my cup of tea althought I loved every sageuks I've seen. Bae Yoon Joon was good and had enough chemistry to cover for the weak leading lady. Lee Ji-ah was just painful to watch.
I was more of a Jumong kind of girl and the epic open-field battles were some of the the best. Jumong and So Seo No were awesome together. I've been a fan Han Hye Jin ever since and I hope she'll do another sageuk soon for old time's sake.

While the I liked the Jumong and So Seo No, thought that the rest of the storyline was a bit weak and repetitive.

Having seen all of Song Il gook's sageuk epics, would say that 'Emperor of the Sea' had the best adventure storyline (but got a bit ridiculous w/ the ending) and 'The Kingdom of The Winds' the better battle scenes (altho the main love story was boring as heck, the secondary love story w/ Kim Jung-hwa's character was much more interesting).

Kinda funny how Kim Byeong-ki seems to play the merchant/lord with the beautiful daughter.

He is great in photos but I don't get the same enjoyment watching him on screen. For some reason.

These photos are great and I'm happy for his fans.

The age difference is alright for me as long as there is chemistry and one of the leads are not a minor.

And I have to agree with JB - 'Legend' may have had its flaws but as a true fantasy saguek it's unbeatable. Epic, visually stunning and heart-grabbing. I'm looking forward to watching this powerhouse team create a new classic with 'Faith'.

The armor looks pretty hot and heavy. He shouldn't wear too much stuff underneath it, maybe just a pair of airy cotton boxers? Speedos tend to stick after a while if you sweat and he's bound to sweat with the weight of that armor. Rashes have been known to occur when the skin can't "breathe" properly. I'm just saying this because I'm concerned about his health and comfort. Really.

He could almost be called ruggedly handsome in that armor if it weren't for the perm and highlights.

I associate delicate with pretty. He is not delicate with his giant eyes, strong nose and jawline. If we start talking about his oh-so-kissable lips and pretty hands, well, that's another thing.

Is it just me or have Kdramas been getting staler and staler? And it seems like most of my favorite actors from years past have fully jumped ship to the movies and thus we get weird pairings like Lee Min Ho - Kim Hee Sun... she's not even a good actress!!! Time for another hiatus I guess.

So that is really really really good actor, that KHJ.

I've personally never considered LMH as being 'pretty', far from it to be honest. He was the only actor in BOF who looked like a man, even when he was dolled up. I'm with the minority who doesn't understand the fascination and obsession people have with this guy, he's a good actor mind you, but looks wise, I just don't see it sorry.

I agree, I've never considered LMH pretty... even with those woman clothes and too much make up on his face in City Hunter, he still looks like a man to me. He will be a weird woman if anyone makeover him as a girl. With those sexy collarbones, jawlines, that makes him looks a like a man. I've never consider him pretty, but is he HOT? Yes I agree...

LMH is more boyishly handsome than "pretty" (really don't think any K-actor is "pretty"; those who are commonly referred to as pretty have that weird androgynous look and actually make for fairly unattractive women).

I would also put Kim Bum in the boyishly handsome category, tho he has started to look more like a grown man since his face has has gotten more defined via that weight loss.

Anyway, in terms of masculine good-looks LMH pales in comparison to the likes of Kim Sung soo, Oh Ji ho, Song Seung heon, etc.

Since the topic here seems to be ONLY about
LMH's hair, let's not forget that in the early
episodes of "Dae Jo Young" (while he was
still a peasant-servant-slave) DJY wore his
hair this same way.

It wasn't until many episodes later, after DJY
became well-known, that he was able to go to
~ The Gogoryeo Hair Salon and Style Center for
Generals and Other Assorted Big Shots ~
at which time he ended up with the correct
fashion statement: the popular seventh-century
hairstyle of ponytail and headband. :)

I'm very much looking forward to seeing "Faith!"
I'm sure that it will manage to live up to its high
expectations. I'm saving money for the DVD now!
:)

lol...and i was wondering what happened to his headband, considering that he's supposed to be a general. His hair up there is really messy, and detracts from his good looks.

To me, he's not pretty, he's handsome, and he looks better in stills than on film.

Strangely, even though i didn't like him in BOF or PT, i'm still anticipating Faith.

Oh my god!!! where do you buy DVDs for K-dramas? Do they have good English subs or can you speak Korean???

I buy a lot of dramas on DVD off E-bay and sometimes the subs are so bad I can't watch them. (Most of the time in fact.)

Is there somewhere in the U.S that would sell them with good subs to overseas people (I am in Australia)!!!????

Please help me!!! I just bought Queen In Hyun's Man off the net and I can't even watch it the subs are so bad!!!

Does anyone know of somewhere that sells DVDs online with good English subs that has 'Queen In Hyun's Man" ???
