“XO, Kitty” Lee Sang Heon Is Blowing Up Internationally But Here’s What Koreans Think Of Him
Actor Lee Sang Heon has been facing a huge increase in popularity lately, given his role as Min Ho in XO, Kitty. The series has become an overnight hit amongst international audiences, topping Netflix charts in multiple countries.
The star plays the frenemy-turned-love interest to the female lead, Kitty. Although he frequently teased her at first, he soon falls for our spunky heroine.
He might not have won Kitty’s heart (yet) but he’s certainly scored big time with the viewers. Internationally, he’s a huge hit, with his Instagram reaching a million followers in just four days of the series’ launch.

How is he faring with Korean fans? Firstly, they love his dynamic with co-star Gia Kim, who is actually his blood-related older sister.

After I found out about this, the drama became even more perfect.
They are also melting due to his hot British accent and low voice.

Not only fans, but Korean netizens are also jumping on the bandwagon.
