At a recent event in Singapore,  Lee Min Ho revealed that he stopped wearing lotion for six months in order to give himself a more masculine look for his upcoming movie Gangnam Blues. Even though he could feel his face was deteriorating, he felt that he looked too pretty to properly play his rugged character.

In this new role, Lee Min Ho hopes to showcase another side to his acting abilities. His character in Gangnam Blues will be very different from the boyish Kim Tan in Heirs.

At the Singapore event, Lee Min Ho shared the following:

“I moved on to Gangnam Blues from Heirs, and I think I looked a little too well-maintained for the role. For the next six months, I didn’t put on any lotion so that I would look a little more manly to play my character.”

Do you notice any difference in these recent photos? Looking good, Lee Min Ho!
