Through “Gangnam 1970,” Lee Min Ho was able to star alongside actor Kim Rae Won, whom he has named as his biggest role model since his debut. He said, “Kim Rae Won hyung was in my first management agency. He was a sunbae who had this aura that made me happy just being able to see him. Even now, he’s a good hyung and sunbae to me. I think it is a great experience and privilege to be able to work with [Kim Rae Won] after all these years.”
The actor also addressed hearsay that the director of “Gangnam 1970,” renowned director Yoo Ha, is a perfectionist, “Director Yoo Ha? (Laughs). I heard that he is very detailed, but I never filmed a scene more than three times. I think it might also be because I prepared myself a lot mentally. [Director Yoo Ha] also cared for me a lot. I heard that this was one of the more easygoing [films] for [Director Yoo Ha].”
Meanwhile, “Gangnam 1970” was recently purchased by Chinese distributors at the highest price of any Korean film ever sold. The film, which is currently being edited for Chinese release, is set for a March premiere.
Lee Min-ho to Star in Gangnam Blues Written by Hania On November 13, 2014 One of Korea’s most dashing heartthrobs, Lee Min-ho, will be gracing our screens again in December, to the delight of his fans.

The men are then swept up into the rapid industrial development of Gangnam, getting involved in gang turf wars and having their bond tested as a result.
The cast also features Jung Jin-young, a familiar face from legendary films like Miracle in Cell No. 7, and AoA’s young Seol Hyun, making her movie debut.
On the 18th, Kim Rae Won"s agency HB Entertainment claimed that "Kim Rae Won finalized his decision; it"s been a long time since his last moive - Kim Rae Won is set on bringing his best to the screen through thorough character analysis".
