Lee Min-Ho Launches A YouTube Channel, And It's Not Your Typical Vlog
He calls it "Leeminho film," and the "movielogs" are artistically done
Korean actor Lee Min-ho is now a YouTube vlogger too! "Leeminho film," Lee Min-ho's YouTube channel, was launched on October 30, 2020 and, as of this writing, he now has 195,000 subscribers.
Lee Min-ho's YouTube channel is not your typical vlog as each episode is wittily labeled as a "movielog," and the treatment is like a mini film with an artistic tone. In the channel, Lee Min-ho is credited as the executive producer and creative director, and he collaborates with director Zho Won-seock.
Lee Min-ho's YouTube channel so far has two episodes. The first one is two-minutes-and-thirty-eight-seconds-long, and it shows his career highlights including the big and small screen roles he portrayed and the events he graced throughout the years.
The second movielog, which is five-minutes-and-fifteen-seconds-long, is essentially a day in his life on his spare time, wherein he's seen simply driving and walking around the city. Save for a short comment on how "the weather's been getting cold," Lee Min-ho doesn't really talk a lot in his movielog, certainly unlike the vlogs netizens have been used to.
Last October 16, Lee Min-ho posted a photo showing several typographies and iterations for "Leeminho Film Presents," and asked his Instagram followers about what they prefer among those options. As it turned out, he was consulting his fans for what would be his YouTube channel's logo.
Lee Min-ho, whose last K-drama was The King: Eternal Monarch, is currently the most followed Korean actor on Instagram with 20.6 million followers as of this writing. If he'll be as active on YouTube as he is on Instagram now, we're sure he'll get his YouTube Gold Play Button soon. In fact, in just a matter of few days, he has already surpassed 100,000 subscribers, so we're looking forward to when he'll receive his YouTube Silver Play Button. And as to how he will unbox that, that's definitely going to be a treat to his most loyal fans, as that marks a new career milestone for the well-loved Korean actor.
Other Korean actors who have branched out to YouTube are Park Seo-joon, Ji Chang-wook, Sandara Park, Park Min-young, Ahn Bo-hyun, and Shin Se-kyung.
Are we going to hear Lee Min-ho say "like and subscribe" soon?
