Lee Min Ho Childhood And Education
On June 22, 1987, Lee Min-ho was born in Heukseok-dong, Dongjak-gu, Seoul. He is the youngest of his parents’ two children and was raised as a Buddhist. Lee’s original aspiration as a child was to play professional football. He was chosen for the junior football class of manager and former professional player Cha Bum-Kun while attending Namseong Elementary School .
But in the fifth grade, a wound ended his aspirations. In addition, since Lee was in Namseong, other students have made jokes and called him names. In an interview with the Asia Business Daily in 2009, he recalled how his local acquaintances had given him the nickname “kkamdungi” ( lit. “darkie” in English) because of his tan skin.
Other nicknames included “skeleton” when he was a student at Banpo Middle School () and “devil” when he was in high school the former came from the idea that he was “too slender,” whilst the latter was a result of his “playful” nature.
Lee had already shifted his interests to acting and modeling by the time he entered his first year at Danggok High School. He happened to run into the future leader of Starhaus Entertainment after posing for a few magazines. His newly professional acting career would be fueled by the experience, and he would eventually join the agency in 2005.
Lee enrolled at Konkuk University in 2006. He started off majoring in Film Arts at the university’s College of Art and Design, where he later earned a bachelor’s degree. He is presently a student at Kookmin University Graduate School, where he is pursuing a master’s in film.
