Call it coincidence or perhaps the contentment stemming from runaway popularity, a mere two weeks after Kim Soo Hyun lit up the C-netizens and media by looking noticeably rounder at a car show, it’s Lee Min Ho‘s turn to set the tongues a-wagging. Lee Min Ho was snapped leaving Korea headed for China, a trip he’s been taking regularly this entire year since Heirs rocketed him to new heights of fame in China, looking like he’s not been sacrificing meals recently. No one is insane enough to call Lee Min Ho fat, he’s skinny even if he’s added a few healthy pounds, but he definitely is missing the visible jaw V-line that’s so prized in Korea and his fans are used to seeing on his face.
He showed up in China at a brand promotional event still looking more square-ish around the face, which wouldn’t be cause to light up the C-news portals but for the fact that he’s soooooo popular in China the C-media would write about him if he so much as sneezed. I think he looks fine and frankly the male model skinny look is just unsustainable and does no good for anyone, whether it’s the entertainer or the fans with unrealistic expectations. I actually think he looks manlier this way. The one-two punch of Kim Soo Hyun and Lee Min Ho gaining a teeny bit of weight so close in time has given their respective C-fans more ammunition to continue their “my oppa is hotter/more popular/a better actor than yours” battle.
