I know I mentioned how K-actors tend to be more cookie-cutter in looks and styles, whereas J-actors are decidedly quirkier as a group. Just as I said that, I got my grubby hands on new Lee Min Ki pictures from Vogue Girl Korea and I immediately recalled that he’s one of the few K-actors who is an outlier to my generalization. From his choice of roles, to his acting technique, to the way he looks, he’s very eclectic and unique. I love that about him.
I also love this set of dusk-tinted pictures, where Min Ki channels a hip metrosexual biker turned taxi driver, probably a twist on his character in the Summer movie Quick, which did well enough at the Korean box office. Up next for Min Ki is the paranormal romance movie Chilling Romance with Son Ye Jin. It doesn’t look like this boy is leaving Chungmuro anytime soon. And why should he, when he’s doing on interesting movie after another.
