The Lee Min Ho Effect

The man that brought Gu Jun Pyo to life has finally chosen his next project. After waiting for almost a year to act again, on January 11th Lee Min Ho’s management company announced that he accepted the lead role in the drama Personal Taste for MBC. It’s a drama based on a popular novel that had been rumored would come out a while ago, but then was shelved (it was rumored in October of 2008 that Yoon Eun Hye and Joo Ji Hoon would reunite for this drama but it never happened).

The story follows Jeon Jin Ho who passes himself off as a homosexual so that he can get closer to the female lead (who is yet to be cast) because she’ll only have homosexuals as roommates. Apparently it’s pretty easy for Jin Ho to pass himself off as a homosexual because he’s slightly OCD, is a neat freak, and enjoys organizing and ironing? The drama is planning to start filming in late February and be broadcast in early April.

So what’s the big deal and the Lee Min Ho Effect? Even though the announcement was just made, major bookstores in Korea have seen a huge surge in sales of the novel. The demand is so great that finding a copy will soon be a scarcity. It’s only been 2 days, sheesh- Min Ho apparently has still got it. It just goes to show the popularity of Boys Over Flowers. I hope they start reprinting the novel if need be. Be sure to check out the drama when it comes out in April. Hope fully, it will be better than some of the other actors from BOF’s follow up efforts. *cough* Dream *cough*
