The K-drama section of Nigerian Twitter has been sent into a bit of frenzy following the article of a young Nigerian man.
He wrote about the favorite and almost sacred “Oppa” and contrary to the type of stories written about Lee Min Ho, this didn’t sing his praise.
“Lee Min Ho is a world-famous A-list Korean actor who rose to stardom for his role as Gu Jun Pyo in Boys over Flowers. He’s also incredibly handsome, funny, and down-to-earth (based on his interviews). But here’s the thing. He’s not a great actor. He actually kind of sucks. There, I said it,” the writer penned his thoughts.
K-drama lovers on Twitter did not take this review well because they believe Lee Min Ho brought K-drama to the limelight and shouldn’t be insulted in that manner.
Some believe they need to gatekeep the dramas from people who don’t share the same love and reverence they have for the Korean culture.
If you loved Lee Min Ho in 2013, I totally understand, but in 2022? Be fucking for real. Read this to know who you should be watching now.https://t.co/yELcRm0C9j
