I’ve always expected a star of Lee Min Ho’s popularity to set up shop on his own sooner rather than later, so this news is not surprising other than the direction he chose to take. Lee Min Ho has left his long time agency Starhaus Entertainment is signed with newly formed label MYM Entertainment, with MYM standing for Me And You Making. The new company is jointly managed by Lee Min Ho’s agent from Starhaus Jang Young Hoon and his older sister Lee Yoon Jung. I feel like this is such a smart move for him, going to his own dedicated label but putting those closest to him in personal and professional ways in charge of managing it rather than choosing to play CEO along with being a top Hallyu star.
Lee Min Ho has the Korean-Chinese caper movie Bounty Hunters coming out later this year, and is reportedly going to work with You From Another Star screenwriter Park Ji Eun on her next drama. The first looks like a fun and surefire hit while the second is worth looking forward to seeing how Lee Min Ho can elevate Park Ji Eun’s storytelling and bring it to life.
