Happy Birthday Lee Min Ho!



International superstar Lee Min Ho celebrates his 28th birthday today!

The actor/singer/model has had a whirlwind of a career ever since his break-out role in Boys Over Flowers, and is now a bonafide A-lister, not to mention ULTRA-hottie.

To celebrate Lee's birthday, we found some fun facts about the multi-talented performer.

1. He once wanted to be a professional footballer, but a childhood injury put an end to that dream. But not to worry, we're kinda glad he chose acting instead :)


2. The first thing he does in the morning is feed his miniature pinscher "Choco," who apparently has a wardrobe worthy of Coco Chanel. Lucky dog!


3. All thanks to his role in City Hunter, Lee Min Ho's popularity in China shot up and he was even invited as the first Korean celebrity to perform on China's CCTV Lunar New Year Gala, an honored and prestigious event.


4. The illustrious Madame Tussauds in Shanghai unveiled a wax figure of him wearing a dapper black suit, which took 10 months to carve. That's almost too much handsome for one place!


5. His enormous popularity in China has earned him some interesting nicknames, including "Older Brother," "Big Cutie," and "Long-Legged Oppa."


6. He was once in a serious car accident that landed him in the hospital for a year! Fortunately, he bounced back nicely.


6. In the future, he would like to have a daughter. Apparently, he thinks they'd make for better children. Good choice!


7. He believes in love at first sight! Sigh, a true romantic. Just like Kim Tan in Heirs!
