Lee Min-Ho is a well-known South Korean actor,singer and model with his contagious smile and commendable acting skills known best for his work on the super hit series Boys Over Flowers as character Gu Jun-Pyo and this was my first drama that brought me to KDRAMAS WORLD.
All of his dramas are remarkable. I had watched his drama hell lot of times (especially The heirs).
Below I listed 6 k-dramas that got us falling for Lee Min Ho –
1. BOYS OVER FLOWERS
Hardworking Geum Jan Di attends the exclusive Shinhwa High School by a scholarship she gets because of an incident. She finds her shallow, privileged classmates unbearable, especially the notorious F4. Rich, handsome, and arrogant, Goo Jun Pyo (Lee min ho)Yoon Ji Hoo, So Yi Jung, and Song Woo Bin are the kings of the school and no one, not even the teachers, dare challenge them. No one, that is, except Jan Di. Angry at their rudeness, Jan Di tells off F4 leader Jun Pyo, bringing a world of trouble upon herself. Although Jun Pyo persists on bullying her, he begins to find himself attracted to Jan Di.
You definitely can’t resist the f4. They are handsome, intelligent, rich with killer smile. This drama also gave me my first major second lead syndrome.
This was the drama that made Lee Min Ho most popular superstar all across Asia and gave him international success. His beautiful curly locks in this drama was so cute.
2. LEGEND OF THE BLUE SEA

But Joon Jae’s friend, Cha Shi Ah, who works as a researcher at KAIST, may be Chung’s only hope for surviving in her strange new world.
Inspired by a classic Joseon legend from Korea’s first collection of unofficial historical tales, about a fisherman who captures and releases a mermaid, this drama tells the love story between the son of a noble family in Joseon era and a mermaid.
