This ‘Lee Minho’ is Different From Others, Meet Stray Kids’ Lee Know!
The name Lee Minho must be familiar to you if you’re a Korean drama lover. But do you know that the name Lee Minho is quite popular in Korea? Even in the acting field, there is more than one actor who has the name. One of them is the Lee Minho that played in City Hunter.
In the K-pop industry, there are also a number of idols with the name Minho. For example, Minho from SHINee, who has Choi Minho as his real name, Mino from WINNER, who has Song Minho as his real name, and the idol that we’re going to talk about.. Stray Kids’ Lee Minho, or as he’s also known by his stage name, Lee Know!
Lee Know is one of the nine members in the boy-group Stray Kids, and is a member with amazing dancing skills. Before officially debuting with Stray Kids, Lee Minho chose his own stage name, which is Lee Know. He preferred to have a stage name since there were already too many Minhos in the entertainment industry in Korea.
If you watched the Stray Kids reality show on Mnet that aired in 2017, right before Stray Kids officially debuted, Lee Know was still using his real name, Lee Minho, on the show. As a result, it’s a bit hard for some Stray Kids fans, Stay, who’ve been Stray Kids fans since the beginning, to remember to call Lee Know by his stage name. Most of them still him Minho.
The name Lee Know is written as 리노 (Lee No) in hangul. It sounds a bit like his real name, Lee Minho, but it also sounds like he’s saying ‘no’ to himself. That’s why he decided to write his stage name as ‘Lee Know’, which means that he ‘knows’ himself and he ‘knows’ Stay, Stray Kids’ fans.
Well, let’s get to ‘know’ to this Lee Minho, Lee Know from Stray Kids!
