Lee Min-ki in Cosmopolitan

You know how they say that a picture’s worth a thousand words? When your subject is the insanely charismatic — and just-as-insanely-styled — Lee Min-ki, that tends to be true.

Lee Min-ki, rockin’ the blond hair, lookin’ funky (and hot), baring some man-book. Those are really all the words you need anyway.

(This spread comes from March’s issue of Cosmopolitan. God bless ’em.)

(Also, I loved his characterization of Byung-hee so much in Shut Up: Flower Boy Band that I feel guilty saying that I don’t even miss him (much). Which speaks more to how much that drama’s rocking than to Lee Min-ki himself, since he owned those first two episodes.)

The first picture, it's something... He has metallic star stickers on his cheeks, bleached hair, and... is he covered in that fake grass to decorate Easter baskets?
Never have I seen such WTF-ery look so cool on an individual, it's mind-boggling I tell you.

lol... i agree that the cleavage looks photoshopped in. Looks too singular like he only has a boob on the one side. And it's kinda "crooked." In a word, it just looks WRONG!

...now that you mention it, i did a double-take -- and it SO looks wrong XD
But that does not mean that he doesn't look hot.
*takes out whiteboard and pointer to explain*
As you can clearly see, his hotness is all it takes to light that cigarette. I mean, just look at the way it burns! Lee Min-ki is just too hot to handle.

I feel you. But it's not "not miss" in the sense that we're dismissing the charisma he brought to the screen in those 2 episodes. But the drama lives on without him, and in a way, the boys have not failed (if I'm not mistaken) to mention his name in every single episode. It's like their memories of him is also a factor forcing them to get their things together and.. do something.

Now that the drama is where it is, I can't help but to think how Byung Hee would fit in actually. I'm thinking that if the character stays, he would be so dominant such that the rest would be left to play (five) 2nd-member role. He's strong enough to lead the band, but seems a bit too eccentric to take in the whole conflict with Strawberry Fields, the relationship with the teacher, and the relationship with Su Ah even. Well, it is possible if he were to tone down the character a bit but NO, I don't wish to see that.

Opps sorry for turning this into another SUFBB discussion.

After I saw these floating around on tumblr yesterday I wasted no time in making one my avatar for Disqus (the one with the shades). It makes me feel like everything I say is awesome, honestly.

He just looks cool all the time, man.

I keep thinking about his variety show days where he had a crush on Yoon Eun Hye and I wonder if she looks at all his photo-shoots thinking "man, did I miss out on something?" YES YOU DID, GIRL. YOU DID.

I was thinking of the exact same thing! He was such a bashful young man then, its no wonder he was overlooked. He just bloomed(?) into such a hot young manly thing, its mind boggling. How did that happen? lol

No one has any right looking that awesome covered in easter grass. I just finished Dal Ja's Spring for the first time, and for the first time since I was a teenager I understand the urge to follow a celebrity around like a creepy fan girls. le sigh.

So Andy Warhol style ? I never visualized him in blond, but it suits him.
I can't understand why he didn't get bigger / better roles offered in the past. He burns the screen.
Imagine him bringing his acting and charisma in DH2, maybe as a crazy teacher from out of space. Giving tips to the boys for seducing girls.

he's too beautiful. i mean, he really reminds me of GD. because he can wear anything, make it look good, and still be smoking hot. he can be covered from head to toe and still be hotter than Taecyeon without his shirt one. that is saying a lot. not many people can do that, but he just looks...........wow.

He reminds me of... glitter rock.
Like wild untamed expression coupled with edgy youthful dissatisfied untertones. Maybe it's the colors and clothes coupled with the glare in his eyes in some of the pictures haha.

:D

I miss his character though! The drama's great!

Now I'm just being teased some more with these photos. It's now indescribable how bad I want to watch Chilling Romance.

When do those Hammer pants die off the face of the Earth!?!

I wish he was portrayed as a Korean James Dean instead, being a 'rebel without a cause' motif.

I don't know how to describe him. He just stands out in every role he's in. He doesn't have to play a crazy character like Byung-hee for me to remember him. He can play a simple young man from Busan like in Haeundae and still be memorable. Loved him as Byung-hee but loved him just as much as Busan boy as well. How does he do it??

I've got to say that although he's rocking the first photo, I dislike the fact that they covered his majestic cheekbones with star stickers.
