[HanCinema's News] Lee Minhyuk Critical of Damage Done to his Good Name


Recently a clip of Lee Minhyuk of the boy band BTOB has expressed annoyance regarding his "The Penthouse 2" namesake. In "The Penthouse 2" Lee Min-hyeok (이민혁 in Korean) is the name of a vicious bully played by Lee Tae-vin. The conversation got started as BTOB was doing a live broadcast on March 20th during the same time the tenth episode of "The Penthouse 2" was airing. Roughly ten thousand fans were watching the live broadcast, which instructed them to watch the live broadcast instead of the drama.


Lee Minhyuk quickly responded to the prompt by going ah, I really hate that Lee Min-hyeok guy. Lee Minhyuk thought it was regrettable that he shared his name with such a generally repugnant character. Amused fans noted that as Lee Minhyuk made this probably scripted gesture, he was using very similar intonation to what the fictional Lee Min-hyeok does, a quirk that has endeared Lee Tae-vin to fans as a character they love to hate.

This is not the first time notice has been called to widely disliked character's common name. On February 27th Lee Tae-vin apologized to all of the Lee Min-hyeoks of the world for their inadvertent association with his character. Fans asked him to do better, expressing hope that the character would have a possible redemption arc. "The Penthouse 2" airs on SBS in the Friday and Saturday ten 'o clock timeslot.
