Lee Min Gi (이민기)

This actor had caught my attention through drama “Dalja’s Spring” when he played as Dalja’s (Chae Rim) boy friend. His acting ability there was quite good, but he had showed his impressive skill in 2009’s “Haeundae“. He played Choi Hyeong Shik’s character very well along with the good saturi speaking. On August 2009, he released his debut EP “No Kidding” with a strong indie-electro rock sound. He also tried singing, but it didn’t work well. Personally, I don’t think handsome will be the right category for him, nor sexy. I think this man just had a particular uniqueness, which I’m not sure I know what it is…
