I happened to be on Twitter last night mere moments after Lee Min Ho posted one of his infrequent tweets. I almost didn’t glance at it since celebrity tweets are usually bland anodyne life or project updates, but I’m soooooo glad I paused to take a look because I fairly spit out the drink I just took a sip from. My eyes bulged wondering if this was an accidental tweet and meant as a DM for a personal someone, or was absolutely intentional and then I wondered what his message was?
The tweet was an update from Min Ho-ssshi posted from LA where he’s currently at, working on something I assume, and he wrote that it was really hot there. The eye popping part came from the accompanying picture which showed him snapping a topless selfie of himself sitting on a sofa. He’s making two different facial expressions, neither of which are attractive or all that appropriate to be tweeting to his fans. I can’t decide whether he is going for a come hither pout or looking mildly constipated. I love the boy but this is one majorly fail SNS moment, so I’d rather believe this was a private “I miss you, honey!” picture meant for his Suzy.
Let it be said that I fully assume my reaction may be in the minority, especially among Lee Min Ho’s legions of fans who may be slurping up this picture and asking for more. I don’t necessarily have a problem with the topless selfie itself since nothing inappropriate is showing, but his two facial expressions are really cringeworthy and that’s what tips the scale from innocuous fanservice to somewhat unpalatable. Oh wells, let those who love it eat their Min Ho ice-cream happily, even if I’m wishing he didn’t quite send me chortling late into the night thinking back to this selfie.
