As we previously reported, SM Entertainment has refueled its plans to produce upcoming drama “To the Beautiful You,” a Korean adaptation to the popular Japanese manga “Hana Kimi.” SM Entertainment has finally unveiled the two male and female leads for the upcoming drama: SHINee’s Minho and f(x)’s Sulli. The series will be directed by “Boys over Flowers‘” Jeon Ki Sang.
SHINee‘s Minho is much beloved for his talents, but now his appeal got kicked up another notch after netizens espied his chivalrous manners towards 2NE1‘s Sandara Park.
Snapshots from an Etude commercial shoot were shared online under the title, ”Minho taking care of Sandara. It’s heartwarming”.
Reportedly, the two stars were on standby, but Minho kept active by ensuring that Sandara was protected from the cold. Minho was seen putting a jacket on Sandara several different times, as the photos show him wearing different outfits. Sandara looks a bit taken aback by Minho’s manners, who is actually seven years younger than her.
Prior to this incident, Sandara had previously mentioned on SBS‘s ’Strong Heart‘ that “I like younger boyfriends. I’d like it if he would have a cute appearance but have a masculine, tough personality.” It seems that without knowing it, she went on to describe SHINee’s Minho indirectly.
SHINee‘s Minho will be taking on a comedic acting role in SBS‘s new sitcom, ‘Salamander Guru’s Inside Story’, which will air early next year.
Minho will be playing the role of Minhyuk, a genius hacker, alongside actors Im Won Hee and Oh Dal Soo.
A source revealed, “Minho has begun acting preparations by enrolling in the staff cafe and such… He will help lead the story along as a hacker who manipulates the two robbers, played by Im Won Hee and Oh Dal Soo.”
Minho has ventured into acting before with the KBS drama special ‘Pianist’. He played the role of a 20 year old piano genius who became involved in a romantic relationship with Han Ji Hye‘s character, earning much praise for his stable acting ability.
