He usually plays against Super Junior's Kim Hee Chul, also a gamer, as his rival. Kim even revealed in an episode that he and Lee Min Ho plays a lot together as opponents.

Also, Lee Min Ho added that if he had not been an actor, he would have been a professional online gamer. So maybe if you play League of Legends, you will never know you may be fighting against Lee Min Ho. How cool would that be?

In the world of K-dramas, sending coffee trucks to your friends became a tradition, especially when the actor still having its ongoing film production. Lee Min Ho received one from THE Lee Jung Jae, "Squid Game" lead actor and now an international superstar. He's a well-respected and veteran actor prominent in Korea.

And take note: you don't send coffee trucks to random celebrities unless you're friends.


When Lee Min Ho was discharged from the military, "The King: Eternal Monarch" was his first project. His latest drama, "Pachinko," received critical acclaim from Korea and overseas.

Hopefully, we will see more of him onscreen, and maybe, just maybe, Lee Min Ho and his closest friends will make a movie together - may it be about friendship or an action-packed film where they are the main characters.

Indeed, Lee Min Ho is one lucky celebrity surrounded by fellow stars who are always supporting him every step of the way.
