Lee Min Ho is ready for a challenge. The tough Gangnam Blues actor recently joined the cast and crew of his upcoming film Bounty Hunters for an exclusive press conference in China. Yesterday, the stars behind the joint South Korean and Chinese project met members of the press to promote the film about bounty hunters residing in Korea, China, Thailand and more Asian countries. Lee Min Ho discussed his new role in the film that will start filming next month.

"He is a smart and cute character who is a skilled martial artist," he said. "It's something I've never done before, and I hope it will be fun to watch."

The team cut a celebratory cake in honor of the film's inception. During the cake cutting ceremony, the MC asked Lee if he had any other wishes besides the movie's success. The action star mentioned the recent Chinese tourist ship disaster, which ended in hundreds of fatalities, and said, "We have been through the same pain in Korea. I hope the friends and families of victims recover from this hardship." Indeed, he is all heart.

Bounty Hunters also stars Wallace Chung and Karena Ng.

Are you curious about his new project? Do you think it will drastically change his image?
