Lee Min Ho shared his thoughts on filming his upcoming Apple TV+ series.
On the 18th, Apple TV+ held an online press conference for its new South Korean series, Pachinko, in LA.
At the media conference, Lee Min Ho briefly introduced his role by saying, “I will be playing a man named Ko Han Soo, a Yakuza and merchant who travels back and forth between Korea and the United States. He meets a wonderful young woman named Sun Ja and falls into a dangerous yet fateful love.”
The actor also shared what it was like winning the role through an audition. He said that it had been almost 13 years since he had competed for a role in an audition: “It has been well over a decade since I have last auditioned for my role in Boys Over Flowers. As I had The King: Eternal Monarch going on at that time, I jumped on the audition a little later than I should have. I feel like a new man to be auditioning once again, it really excites me.”
Regarding his glamorous fashion in the upcoming series, he remarked, “For the clothes, rather than simply giving a glimpse of that era, I tried to consider my costume as weapons that sometimes defend me and other times can show people who I am. I tried on a lot of different costumes to express the character of Han Soo.”
Patchinko is an eight-part series that will be dropping on Apple TV+. The streaming service will release its first three episodes on March 25th and release the rest of them one by one every Friday from April 29th.
