South Korean heartthrobs Lee Min-ho and Song Hye-kyo would make an ideal couple, according to fans of both actors. A special fan page has been dedicated to Lee Min-ho and Song Hye-kyo referring to them as ‘MinKyo magical couple.’
While the fans of the South Korean superstars want Lee Min-ho and Song Hye-kyo to work together, no projects have been announced so far that involves this charismatic couple.
However, in an interview with ISplus two years ago, Lee Min-ho had expressed his desire to work with Song Hye-kyo. He even emphasized that Song Hye-kyo is his “ideal type.” He was quoted as saying, “I would like to work with my ideal type, Song Hye-kyo sunbae (senior). Although she has an elegant and classic style, her charisma is also strong and her acting talent is outstanding. If we act together, I think I could learn a lot from her. But I’d probably tremble (be nervous) a lot, ” he said.
Both Lee Min-ho and Song Hye-kyo have been making headlines lately. While actress Song Hye-kyo has been lauded for her performance in the South Korean military drama Descendants of the Sun, actor Lee Min-ho is busy promoting his upcoming movie Bounty Hunters.
This movie is being well-received, particularly among the Chinese fans.
Lee Min Ho has been seen promoting his Bounty Hunters in China. There was a special preview in Beijing on June 22, and two promotional events in Xi’an and Fuzhou on June 23 and 24.
In a series of photographs released on Soompi, Lee Min-ho’s fans are seen huddled at various levels in the mall.
However, a recent Bounty Hunters promotional event in China was cancelled due to security reasons. “When thousands showed up for the ‘Bounty Hunters’ roadshow, local authorities canceled the event for safety reasons,” Lee Minho’s agency said.
Meanwhile, there has been no news of Song Hye-kyo’s next project. According to IBT, Song Hye-kyo is taking it slow and is not in a rush to take up her next project.
“I have no idea yet. I did get a couple of offers, but I still can’t bring myself to read a new project. Rather than a drama, I think I may pick a movie,” said Song Hye-kyo, who stole the hearts of many when she starred in television dramas such as Autumn in My Heart,All In,Full House,The World That They Live In,That Winter, the Wind Blows, and the recent blockbuster Descendants of the Sun.
“For dramas, I’ve become more careful because now there are specific works that you think of when you hear the name Song Hye-kyo. If I were to do a drama again, I would really like to work on a fatal melodrama. Like a love that can’t be? I await a project where I’d have to deeply invest my emotions in,” she said.
He choice of performance-centric roles is what got Song Hye-kyo a huge fan following, and she says she is ever grateful to her fans.
“There are some who have been fans for a long time. I am so grateful for them. Thank you to those who have believed in me and supported me since Autumn In My Heart until now no matter what choices I made. Going forward, I would like if you continued to believe in me no matter what decisions I make or whatever happens to me,” Song Hye-kyo said.
On the personal front, actress Song Hye-kyo is linked to her Descendants of the Sun co-star Song Joong-ki. Lee Min-ho, on the other hand, reportedly split with his Korean singer girlfriend Bae Suzy that he had to celebrate his birthday without her.
It remains to be seen whether Song Hye-kyo and Lee Min-ho will get together for a project sometime soon.
