Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye: 'The Heirs' Stars Might Be Reuniting Soon
Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye had a very successful team-up in The Heirs. In fact, their on-screen chemistry was so amazing that fans have been hoping that the Legend of the Blue Sea actor and the Doctors star would reunite once again in The Heirs 2. But is it happening?
The 30-year-old South Korean actor and singer is currently completing his mandatory military service, so he can't engage with other activities outside his compulsory duties. However, Lee Min Ho’s enlistment is set to end in 2019, and fans believe that one of the projects slated for him is The Heirs 2.
If a show would be created through fans’ demands, then The Heirs 2 would’ve happened years ago. Unfortunately, that’s not how it works in the entertainment business. But fans were given the hopes of a possible Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye reunion when the actor stated that he would return to the industry with a “mysterious big project.”
Despite working well with a lot of his female co-stars, Lee Min Ho’s working relationship with Park Shin Hye appeared to be the most popular. With that said, many believe that this “mysterious big project” is The Heirs 2.
Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye didn’t only have great romantic chemistry on-screen, but they worked well together, too. In fact, there was one scene in The Heirs where the actor was asked by the director to kiss Park Shin Hye, and the actress remained professional despite being startled by it.
"Since the kiss was the culmination of all the events and emotions leading up to it, there was no other alternative than to do it for real," Lee Min Ho said in an interview with Korea's Daily Sports. "I did regret that no one told Park Shin Hye beforehand. Usually, actresses are given an idea of what will happen. So I think Park Shin Hye was caught off-guard by how it played out."
Although love just couldn’t find the perfect timing for Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye, their chemistry had always been present. The existence of The Heirs 2 remains speculation for now.
