In other news, Lee Min-ho recently opened up about how learning more about Korean history for the upcoming Apple TV+ series Pachinko had affected him, in a recent interview with The Korea Times.
“Back then, there were no choices and no room to dream of a better future,” he said. “I tried to look at the images from that time and what devastated me was that there were no pictures of Koreans smiling. It hurt to see that there were no hopes and dreams but only those who are pushing along with their lives.”
