What makes this even more newsworthy, apart from the fact that it is Lee Min Ho, is that the drama also has top writer Kim Eun Sook and PD Kang Shin Hyo. Kim Eun Sook is also the writer behind "Secret Garden" and "A Gentleman's Dignity". Sitting on the director's chair will be Kang Shin Hyo, who was PD for Midas and Tazza.
For Lee Min Ho, the decision was easily made with the fact that writer Kim Eun Sook is penning this drama. The actor has much respect for the writer saying, "Having watched Kim Eun Sook's creations, it was only natural that I want to be able to work with her. My wish came true through this opportunity. Getting to work with a writer and director I really respect means a lot to me, I am positive this will be a great production."
This production is likely to catapult Lee Min Ho to A-list status for drama and perhaps even movies. Due to association with Kim Eun Sook, Lee Min Ho will soon join the ranks of top-rated actors and actresses who have worked with the writer, which includes Ha Ji Won, Hyun Bin, Jang Dong Gun, Kim Ha Neul, Kim Sun Ah and Cha Seung Won.
Fans who have learned about this upcoming comeback for Lee Min Ho have all shown nothing but excitement.
