South Korean actor Lee Min Ho arrives in Vancouver to film Apple TV's Pachinko

Popular South Korean actor Lee Min Ho has arrived in Vancouver, where he’ll soon begin filming for his latest TV drama.

The 33-year-old has starred in a number of popular Korean dramas, including Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, Heirs, and most recently, The King: Eternal Monarch.

His latest project, according to Variety, will be for Apple TV’s Pachinko, an adaptation of the Min Jin Lee novel. The story follows four generations of a Korean immigrant family.

Photos and tweets shared by Minoz, the nickname for Lee’s global fanbase, confirmed his arrival at YVR Vancouver International Airport last week.

Due to Canada’s recently implemented international travel measures, the South Korean actor is likely completing or has recently completed his mandatory hotel stay.

Travellers entering Canada internationally are required to stay at one of 11 federally-authorized hotels as they await a negative COVID-19 test. According to the Canadian government, accommodations will cost $2,000 per person — which includes the cost of private tests and the hotel stay.

According to What’s Filming, Pachinko began filming in Vancouver in early February and will wrap up in late April.
