Xiao Xian‘s straight-forwardness made the battle between Jerry Yan and Lee Min Ho reach its climax!
At yesterday’s press conference for Boys Over Flowers Korean version of <Meteor Garden>, host Xiao Xian stated, “I’m currently filming a drama with Jerry Yan. I feel that you (Lee Min Ho) are much friendlier than he is,” which made staff members at the event felt a cold shiver. When Xiao Xian asked Lee Min Ho, who has teeth as white as Jerry’s, to “give a smile”, Lee Min Ho’s face turned green. He smiled embarrassedly and laughed lightly.
Lead actor Lee Min Ho and lead actress Koo Hye Sun from the popular Boys Over Flowers, has finally come to visit Taiwan. More than a hundred fans waited overnight at the airport to greet them. When they both appeared, slight disruptions were caused at the airport. At the press conference, whenever they smiled or said simple Chinese phrases like, “I like Taiwan very much” or “I hope I can come to Taiwan more often”, fans would scream non-stop.
Inevitably, regardless of Lee Min Ho’s appearance, attractiveness, or the way he talks, he is compared to Jerry Yan. When Lee Min Ho, who is 10 years younger than Jerry Yan, was asked with sharp questions, he showed no tint of inexperience. He expressed that whether it is his skin color, hair, or his double-eyelids, he agreed that he does show resemblance to Jerry Yan. He feels honored to be said that he looks like Jerry Yan and hopes that he can meet him in the future.
But no star wants to be a “bootleg version”. Host Xiao Xian ignited some flames twice. Not only were journalists in cold sweat, even fans expressed disapproval. The attendees constantly shouted, “They don’t look alike,” and “Lee Min Ho is better looking.”
Lee Min Ho sincerely admitted that he didn’t watch much of Taiwan’s Meteor Garden as he was afraid of affecting his performance. Koo Hye Sun expressed that although the Korean version originated from the Manga, there were some big changes made to the storyline, including how the leading characters were high school students, or how she was a national swimming champion, etc. Lee Min Ho’s conch hairstyle has become a huge hit in Korea. He smiled and said that he cannot understand why because he feels that the hairstyle looks very much like an “old Aunt”. However, he won the lead role because he proactively went to get his hair permed.
During the filming of Boys Over Flowers love rumors were spread between Lee Min Ho and Koo Hye Sun. At yesterday’s conference, they avoided in giving a detailed answer and emphasized that it is because the drama got very popular, thus, love rumors were spread. Lee Min Ho, who had to go against his mother in the drama to love Koo Hye Sun, stated that if he loves a girl that his family does not approve of, he would elope with her. On the other hand, Koo Hye Sun expressed that if her family cannot approve of her love relationship, she would choose to give up.
They do look alike in some angles though they have a very distinct handsomeness in them as well…
love them both and also Matsu Jun who played the same role in Japanese version
