Lee Min Ho looked the part as he rinsed himself off in Malibu after a surfing lesson. The 26-year-old screen stud removed his wetsuit and went shirtless while filming for new drama Heirs.
After a crash course surf lesson for the series, the actor took to the showers to reveal his toned upper body and flat abs on the Malibu beach, Los Angeles, outdoor set.
An onlooker tells IdolWow! of the September 17 shoot: “He wasn’t shy about showing his body to the camera. He’s very confident and in great shape.”
And he isn’t just a pretty face — production staff have been brimming with praise for his work in the much-anticipated SBS series. A production staffer says that the star’s inspiring work ethic has made for a fun working environment. “He’s really positive and always ready to work,” says the source. “There are no diva moments.”
But despite being in such great shape, Lee admits he has to work hard on his physique. “I play football twice a week and go to the gym as well,” he has said. “But I also eat quite well so I have a small tummy now. I need to work hard to get rid of it.”
Meanwhile on October 7 fans across the world celebrated the forthcoming premiere of the series by collectively donating 12 tonnes of rice to charities in his name. That’s enough to feed over 100,000 people!
