Did Heirs turn out to be a good drama choice for Lee Min Ho? I’d say there is a good argument on either side that it helped him career and probably hindered his acting development. He’s still young and has plenty of opportunities ahead of him so I don’t begrudge that he picked a flimsy nonsensical idol drama to help his 2013 popularity once again sky rocket. I don’t Heirs is anywhere near the hysteria of Boys Before Flowers, and probably not even as popular as Kim Eun Sook‘s own Secret Garden was. But it was still very popular in Korea and abroad and Lee Min Ho recently attended the Baidu Fei Dian Awards in Beijing to receive the Asia Pacific Actor Award. I’m guessing this is a popularity award more than anything though it does speak to Lee Min Ho’s undeniable fandom in China to be invited to such a high profile awards show and receive a special award. Beyond Lee Min Ho being among all these top Chinese stars including Fan Bing Bing and Jackie Chan, I was way more interested in how he looked attending the event. I was so happy to see him shedding the Kim Tan look he’s been sporting for the last six months and going back to a more adult and edgy vibe. I loved his suit for the event which was fresh and fun not to mention he rocked it perfectly. His hair is also shorted and nicely styled, all in all it was a nice reminder of how hot he can look when he’s styled right. I’m forever of the belief that he his outfits were mostly hideous in Heirs other than the high school uniform. Lee Min Ho playfully posed for a kissy picture with Fan Bing Bing after she presented him with the award, and for some reason visually they remind me of when Lee Min Ho co-starred with Kim Hee Sun in Faith. I don’t think my laments with his performance in Heirs was all that frustrating since it was the writing that irked me more than anything. One of these days I might marathon Heirs again and see if it works better in one sitting.
