Boys Over Flowers is a classic blockbuster of the Korean screen and also the film that opened Lee Min Ho‘s golden career.
After this drama, Lee Min Ho went from an unremarkable actor to an A-list star, whose charm has never shown any sign of decreasing.
Playing the curly-haired young man Goo Joon Pyo, the leader of the powerful F4 group, Lee Min Ho matched the role so well that the audience thought that this role was written based on Lee Min Ho himself.
It is no exaggeration to say that so far, he has not had a role that suits Lee Min Ho better than the legendary Goo Joo Pyo.
That’s what it is, but in fact Lee Min Ho is not the first choice of scriptwriter Yoon Ji Ryun.
Initially, the Boys Over Flowers crew was aimed at the famous actor Jang Geun Suk – who was dubbed the Prince of Asia, popular with a series of blockbusters in the period before 2010.
Compared to Lee Min Ho, he was said to be acting and performing in one color, Jang Geun Suk has a more flexible and impressive acting.
By the time he received the offer to close Boys Over Flower, he had pocketed quite a few hit blockbusters such as Hong Gil Dong, Hwang Jin Yi. It is known that he refused Boys Over Flowers because of the Beethoven Virus project .
Unfortunately, although it is not a failure, Beethoven Virus does not create a big resonance like Boys Over Flowers and did not help Jang Geun Suk‘s career change how much.
Fortunately, although he missed the Boys Over Flowers, in the same year of 2009, Jang Geun Suk had the hit blockbuster You’re Beautiful, a work that also resonated throughout Asia, helping him become the prince of dreams of many girls.
Unfortunately, years later, Jang Geun Suk could not keep his charm. Since 2016, he has gained weight uncontrollably, neither taking care of his appearance nor changing his style, resulting in unisex style that no longer suits him as he did in his youth.
Constantly receiving criticism made Jang Geun Suk determined to lose weight, but when he got in shape, he went to the army.
After being discharged from the army in 2020, Jang Geun Suk was praised for his promoted appearance, but still could not be as charming and attractive as at his peak.
Currently, he does not care too much about his appearance nor does he accept new films, making the audience extremely regretful. Compared to Lee Min Ho, the career of “Male Meteor Garden ” is a pity.
