My first k drama was boys over flowers with Lee Minho.
I fell in love with him and his acting ability. Once I started to watch him and learn more about him . He is a sweet man with so much talent and capabilities that he is truly awesome, he is also humble and goes out of his way to make sure that his fans are appreciated.
He is a very talented actor and I’m happy to watch his movies I know that he didnt think his series from boys over flowers was his best, but let me say this, I have watched it so many times I lost count. Him and all the actors were amazing, and just beautiful people to see, I was very impressed and also at times I laughed especially when him and jan-di were together young and in love and after being apart for four years they grew up. I want to thank the producers for a remarkable shows and I had wish that they would have kept making more for us to enjoy. I just loved the way they showed their expression especially Jan-di when he would make her mad at him. I promise I will keep watching them from now on and also tell my friends to watch to.
Faith was one of the first k-dramas I watched and i was immediately enthralled with the character of Choi Young. One of Lee Min Ho’s best roles, in my opinion.
I wishes I watching in Netflix all drama my oppa lee min hon❤️♥️♥️.I like to watch hunter city and personal taste. Pacnciko.. thankc
Hi AJ . Thank you . I will add this to the list
Hi Rose. You can find all the dramas with the right subtitles on Drama cool
“Faith”—the 2012 series drew many Netflix subscribers 10 years ago to a lifelong love of Korean drama, long before the current popularity. Starting rapidly and moving with tensions and humor, it is a fine Korean historical, time slip, romance, and character study with the skilled leads thoroughly convincing, and the support either charming or scary-villainous, holding the audience with these beautiful, talented actors and their great story.
I wish all his dramas will be featured in YouTube .The Heirs in you tube give only some parts of this drama. It’s not complete.Also the English translation is bad. That’s why I prefer to watch Chinese dramas rather than Kdramas because of English translation and its free, you don’t have to pay to watch and I would say 98% of all the Chinese drama I’ve watched has a great story lines.
I think Chinese drama now are getting more popular. It’s only my opinion.
I like LMH but sorry only 2 of his drama I have watched.
If he wants more to promote his dramas, he should upload it in YouTube not in Netflix coz Netflix is not free.
You can’t go wrong by watching any of Lee Min Ho’s dramas. I have watched all of his works over and over. I am currently re-watching FAITH. His excellent martial skills and ability to help the King was suberp. The love story between he and the doctor was beautiful. It is a must watch if his KDramas.
As I am writing this I am watching Heirs AGAIN! Went through the KDrama list but found nothing to my liking. I am always going back to LMH dramas. My sister believes that LMH is causing my blood pressure to soar. I cannot agree more…. LOL I would like to say thank you to LMH for keeping me glued to the TV and I wish him God’s Grace and Favour always.
Hello. first of all I would like to thank for your news and updates on our beloved favorites, including Minos who I respect and love him. I have already seen all the TV series nominated by you among them Pachinko that I have just started … but I have no doubts that I will find a super-performing Minos as always who with his very expressive way and a beautiful voice will be able to excite me for the umpteenth time
