Lee Min Ho, known as the "Korean Long-legged Male God", dreamed of becoming a professional football player since he was a child. When he was in elementary school, he had studied football with the famous Korean football player Fan Geun. Che Fan Geun also recognized his football talent. His parents had also planned to send him to a professional football school for junior high school. If everything goes well, is Lee Min Ho really almost becoming a football star?
When he was a child, Lee Min Ho's physique was weak, so when he was in elementary school, in order to exercise his body, his mother sent him to the football school of Che Fangen, the famous Korean football player and "the best Asian player in the 20th century".
At that time, there were almost 30 children training with Lee Min Ho in a football school. Lee Min Ho learned very fast, so Cha Fan Gen was particularly impressed by him. Under the training and guidance of Cha Fangen, Lee Min Ho's football talent was inspired, and sports became his best subject. As for his football level, Che Fangen once praised him for his talent and insisted on training. During that time, his family even planned to send him to a professional football school to study junior high. Lee Min Ho at that time also dreamed of becoming a professional football player one day.
Lee Min Ho himself is also very confident about his youth football level. In an interview after he became famous, he mentioned his football level. He who has always been humble and low-key, he would jokingly say: "(I) until the first grade of middle school was really great. One person can put ten people down. , (At that time) I was not very tall, I was very fast."
Because of his outstanding appearance, when he was in junior high school, Lee Min Ho was often spotted by scouts while shopping, and told him that if he wanted to become an artist, he could contact them. There were many performing companies like this. At the beginning, neither he nor his family paid too much attention to it, but as the number of times gradually increased, he began to participate in interviews, and first appeared in various fashion magazines as a model.
After starting to contact the showbiz, he became interested in acting and gradually changed his future direction. Since 2003, while still in high school, he started his career as an actor as an intern. In 2006, Lee Min Ho made his official debut by playing football player Park Doo Hyun in the TV series "Secret Campus".
After this car accident, his dream of becoming a professional football player has been completely impossible to achieve, and striving to be a good actor has become his new dream.
In 2009, Lee Min Ho became popular for his role in "Boys Over Flowers" (Korean version of "Meteor Garden"), and in the following years, he starred in "City Hunter" (2011), "Heirs" (2013) and other TV series Both have achieved good results. At that time, he was very popular in Asia and frequently came to China to participate in various programs and activities. In 2014, Lee Min Ho appeared at the CCTV Spring Festival Gala. The song "Love Is Already" performed by him and Yu Chengqing became the most watched program of the Spring Festival Gala of the Year of the Horse. He also became the first Korean artist to perform on stage in the history of the Spring Festival Gala.
李敏镐（Lee Min Ho）在2009年因出演《花样男子》（韩文版《流星花园》）而广受欢迎，并在随后的几年中出演了《城市猎人》（2011），《继承人》（2013）和其他电视连续剧都取得了不错的成绩。当时，他在亚洲非常受欢迎，经常来中国参加各种活动。 2014年，李敏镐现身CCTV春节联欢晚会。他和于成清演唱的歌曲《爱已经存在》成为马年春节联欢晚会最受瞩目的节目。他还成为了春节晚会历史上第一位在舞台上表演的韩国艺术家。
In April last year, Lee Min Ho ended his service life for nearly two years. In the following May, for the first time, he made a travel plan alone without the help of an agent or company, and went to Spain with his friends. He went on a pilgrimage to the Nou Camp with his friends, wearing a Barcelona jacket and a Barcelona scarf, and was a "little fan" at the Nou Camp.
If it were not because of successive injuries, perhaps Lee Min Ho might really become a professional football player. He once said that because of playing football as a child, he has always had a strong desire to win. Although this childhood dream is broken, he also has new dreams and works hard for it as an adult. The spirit of reluctance brought by football has always inspired him to constantly challenge himself, hone his acting skills and become a better actor. Now as an actor, he has made very good achievements, and the story of him and football continues, never stop.
