Korea Fashion – Lee Min Ho’s Pictorial


Lee Min Ho‘s pictorial. Some netizens in Korea said his style in here is similiar to Top (Big Bang). For me, i feel both persons portray different style in photography. Their cam feel is also different. Maybe is only the eyeliner effect which is about the same. Anyway, enjoy the photos! ^^
