Who knew Lee Min Ho has been wandering around the world's most dangerous border -Korea's demilitarized zone (DMZ)?

The border between the North and the South Korea isn’t just a line. It’s a strip of land that is 2.5 mi wide on average—hence the name DMZ.

In DMZ The Wild, Lee Min Ho will walk us inside the untouched land that has allowed wildlife to flourish for 64 years.

Lee Min Ho has camped out in a below-20°F weather and seen endangered species like the otters, yellow snakes, seals, and wildcats during his trips to DMZ.

“Lee Min Ho found time to meet with the production team and visit the DMZ in the midst of busy schedule,” his agency said. The actor has devoted a year and a half for this project from October 2015 to March 2017.

Lee Min Ho filmed the MBC documentary pro bono to raise awareness on the endangered wildlife animals in DMZ.

Not anyone can go inside the volatile border, which makes Lee Min Ho’s documentary valuable. The DMZ was built in 1953 after the Korean War Armistice. However, it wasn’t until 2009 when the first civilian photographer could enter the DMZ, according to National Geographic.

DMZ The Wild prologue airs on Apr. 3, 11:10 p.m. KST. The episodes will air in June.
