[English] Lee Seung Gi vs. Lee Min Ho Screen Face-Off

English translation:

They’re representative stars, aren’t they? Of the same age, Lee Seung Gi and Lee Min Ho are going through a screen hazing ritual. While Lee Seung Gi plays a role that isn’t too different from his image, Lee Min Ho is showing a 180 degree change from the images he has portrayed up until now. What will the results be like? Stars of the same age born in the 1980’s, Lee Seung Gi and Lee Min Ho. Coincidentally, the two who debuted as actors around the same time also took their first step onto the screen. (Note: Lee Min Ho already debuted onscreen in 2008 with two movies)  The one who first challenged the screen was Lee Seung Gi. In the romantic comedy, ‘Love Forecast’, he plays the role of a man who is frustrated with being in “some” relationships. The upright and youthful image he normally portrays is no different in the movie. Lee Seung Gi says,”I think I tried to remain faithful to the emotions. I would say the synchronization with me (my image) is around 80%.” ‘Love Forecast’ hit 1 million views within 6 days of its premiere. Among the romantic comedy genre, its popularity rate at the box office is the same as ‘200 Pound Beauty’, which had the largest audience views of all time. The two actors  have taken on a new challenge, although they have chosen entirely different characters and genres. Audiences have been paying affection to each in a different way, respectively.
