On August 11, ELLE Korea released the first photo from the upcoming September issue, which features Hallyu star Lee Min Ho. The editorial preview hints at the content of the pictorial, which focuses on men's fragrance. In the piece, ELLE Korea notes his superior looks and charisma, as demonstrated in his sophisticated pose.
While the photo shoot was taken during the height of the summer, the 28-year-old actor abandons comfort for fashion. He is styled with a layered look of what appears to be a boucle cardigan and full-length dress slacks.
Lee previously captured the attention of fans in Los Angeles, California, during his 2013 visit for the Hallyu teen drama, "The Heirs." During his return to LA, Lee Min Ho returned to the sandy shores of the Orange County area to enjoy surfing and fun in the sun. His Instagram followers were thrilled when he updated photos from his trip, including a topless picture which attracted both positive and negative feedback.
Although, he is best known for his television roles, he has become an emerging film star. The actor will follow the popularity of his gangland, period film "Gangnam 1970" with the Chinese-Korea co-production, "Bounty Hunters."
His global appeal was recently recognized by the Korea Tourism Board, who called upon the actor to serve as the international face of Korea, in a post-MERS campaign.
The picture published by ELLE Korea serves as a teaser for upcoming video footage featuring the pan-Asian star which is scheduled to be released through Instagram and Facebook. The video will precede the September issue of ELLE Korea, which will be released on August 20.
