South Korean actor Lee Min Ho is ready to show off a manlier side to himself.

The 27-year-old heart-throb, who is best known for playing rich, pretty boy students in hit TV dramas Boys Over Flowers (2009) and The Inheritors (2013), tells local media at a press conference Saturday afternoon that he sacrificed facial moisturiser for six months to achieve a coarser, grittier look. And that new look will debut in his upcoming noir action movie Gangnam Blues, he says, which is slated for release at the end of the year.

“I filmed Gangnam Blues straight after The Inheritors, and I think I looked a little too well-maintained at that point. So I stopped putting lotion on my face for six months afterwards in order to look more manly,” he says with a grin in Korean via a translator at the press event held at The Westin.

In Gangnam Blues, Lee plays a guy who gets embroiled in a power struggle and other skirmishes with a childhood best friend. The playful actor adds in jest: “When the movie comes out, don’t be too worried about who the ‘old’ man in the film is. That person is definitely me.”
