When it comes to legendary actors, there is no denying that one of those people on the list is Lee Min Ho! Making his debut in acting in the early 2000s, Lee Min Ho has amassed a huge number of fans and a lot of love for his diverse acting skills and iconic roles over the years.
Lee Min Ho recently sat down with ESQUIRE Korea and discussed everything from his recent roles, what he likes to do in his spare time, and much more.
In particular, one fan asked Lee Min Ho, “What character would you choose to live as for the rest of your life?” With so many iconic roles over the years, it seems almost impossible just to choose one, especially considering how different they all are.
Yet, despite the vast number of roles, Lee Min Ho picked Kim Tan from the classic K-Drama The Heirs.
For many fans, this was one of the most iconic roles for Lee Min Ho, where he played a wealthy heir to a large Korean conglomerate who falls in love with someone very different from him.
When asked why he chose Kim Tan, Lee Min Ho explained that he wanted to go back to high school, which is something that many people feel when they become an adult.
I want to go back to high school. I want to do what I want to do without any stress for three years.

Although many fans had mixed feelings about Kim Tan, netizens fell in love with the development of the character throughout the series. Yet, it is almost impossible not to relate to Lee Min Ho’s reasons for picking this iconic character.
