Lee Min Ho and Yoona Hit Up Australia for Eider Sports Wear

There are young actors like Joo Won, who I swear is on track to work himself into an early retirement. He’s done three drama’s back-to-back-to-back, all while juggling a reality show, and has already committed to a movie before he’s even done with his current drama. I have no complaints about his hardworking attitude, but conversely there is a young actor like Lee Min Ho who takes long breaks between projects. He’s pretty much done a drama a year on average, starting when he broke out with Boys Before Flowers which led to Personal Taste followed by City Hunter and culminating in last year’s Faith. He typically signs on to projects pretty early in advance but we’re already into Spring of 2013 and I haven’t heard a peep about his next gig yet. Faith was a massive letdown for me and with it my affection for Lee Min Ho cooled considerably. That happens on occasion but the goodwill is still there that one great role and/or project will revive my appreciation for him quickly. He’s insanely popular in China these days and I wouldn’t be surprised if he expands that fanbase by taking on a C-drama, though with the current dearth of decent quality fare it’ll be hard to find one that’s not a turkey. Last month he traveled to Australia with Yoona of SNSD to film the Spring 2013 ad campaign of sports wear brand Eider, which the two of them have been endorsing since last year. Compared to some of the other Korean sports wear brands, Eider actually looks designed for functionality more than trendy look, and the ads also reflect actually sporting activities (as opposed to Kim Soo Hyun and Suzy adorably but ridiculously “glamping” for Bean Pole) such as jogging in the sun or the rain. If you miss Lee Min Ho, these pictures will be a nice temporary fix.

  1. Aww, he’s cute. I wish I liked his dramas as much as I like him. He hasn’t picked bad projects really, but he’s one of the few actors I actually enjoy but don’t like any of his dramas. Even City Hunter was a let down for me towards the end and bad daddy was the better character/actor.

  2. @Ockoala~~ I don’t know if this happens every now and then, and I don’t think it’s a big deal, but right now I’m getting the message: “Reported attack page! This web page at koalasplayground.com has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.” Just giving you a heads up 🙂

  3. I’m really tired of seeing K-celebs endorsing the endless number pf outdoor/sports clothing-gear…I feel like I’ve been seeing the same photoshoots with different people for like the last two years or so

  4. Awww… he sure looks good. ^^ I hope he does a drama this summer. I don’t mind a rom-com but no melo–sick of too much crying/sadness/backstabbing/secret birth, etc.

    • I’m all for a rom-com! What happened to the days of non-stop rom-coms?! I feel like all we get these days are melo dramas.

  5. I really love romcoms. They give me breaks from my life-struggling world.

    I have watched all of Lee Min Ho’s dramas… LOL 🙂

  6. After watching Meteor Garden recently, I have a hard time NOT seeing Jerry in LMH’s face, and LMH in Jerry’s.
    Neither of them are perfect beauties, but both are manly and cute at the same time. Is it the dimples?

    I liked him in Faith. Poor thing. The blame has to fall on the writer/director for that one.

    Doing a C show must increase his popularity a ton, not that he necessarily sees any of the money himself. I am fine with him doing any country’s dramas as long as it is good, oh, and subbed. Actually, it doesn’t even have to be good.

  7. He is about to release a special album and go on a world tour starting in Korea next May. Not that such activity would prevent him from being cast in a drama.

  8. Yoona always has the same pose for every pictorial she does! It’s funny cus I always picture her exactly the same.. Lol 🙂
