So, I thought it would be fresh to play in film that tells a story of Gangnam in 1970s.”“Entering my late 20s, I wanted to appear in a film that gives the lesson. I could be done well with director’s help. I really appreciate him,” he added.

Lee Min-ho looks old fashioned in the film unlike his stunning looks in his previous dramas. He said, “There were reruns of drama <The Heirs> being aired.

Lee Min-ho also stated about badminton. He said, “I don’t know why, but my face easily gets bloated. During filming, director said to me, ‘What did you eat last night? Why does your face look so bloated?’ I actually had eaten hot noodle before going to bed. So, I had to play badminton to reduce swelling.”

Then, director Yu Ha said, “I wanted him to look more handsome. He reminds me of Alain Delon, popular movie star in 1970s. Alain Delon had never looked bloated. That’s why I made Lee Min-ho play badminton,” causing a round of laughter.

Film <Gangnam 1970> opens on January 21 next year.
