Although many idols often share the same name, which can confuse some new K-Pop fans, there are certain idols that are “impossible to mix up.” The “Minhos,” for instance, distinguish themselves with their different talents and visuals, and the help of a few stage names.
Some of “the Minhos” include SHINee‘s Minho…
WINNER‘s Mino (Song Minho)…
And Stray Kids‘ Lee Know (Lee Minho).
Recently SHINee’s Minho and Stray Kids’ Lee Know had an adorable interaction on MBC‘s Music Core. Lee Know is one of the regular MCs for the music broadcast.
And SHINee’s Minho just made his solo debut with CHASE, appearing on Music Core to promote his new song.
In the two talented idols’ highly-anticipated interaction, Lee Know was a relatable fanboy.
Lee Know: Sunbaenim, you’re so cool.
But Minho was quick to also share his admiration for Lee Know’s talent and popularity, joking about how Lee Know comes up first when he searches his own name.
Minho: Our Lee Know has the same name as me, Minho. If I search for my name, only [Stray Kids’ Minho] comes out.
Lee Know: Ah, no, no.
Before promising to look after the younger idol, given their same-name bond.
Minho: I’ll look over you well.
Lee Know: Thank you.
The two even showed off their already-close friendship by exchanging endearments.
Minho: I love you.
Lee Know: I love you.
Fans loved the interactions between the two idols and hope to see more in the future.
