Lee Min-ho recently told entertainment news program eNEWS about his friendship and rivalry with Kim Woo-bin, with whom he worked in the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “The Heirs” two years ago.

“We still keep in touch even when we are apart, though not frequently,” Lee told eNEWS. ”But we haven’t seen each other very often because of our packed schedules.”

“I visited Kim when he was shooting the film ‘Criminal Designer’ and we have always supported each other,” he said, “I assume that he is coming to the film preview of ‘Gangnam 1970.’”

He also said “Some people often compare me with Woo-bin, since he started making films earlier than me. … I’m very used to this kind of comparison. Last time it was the comparison between three guys (when he was filming ‘Boys Over Flowers’).”

“Gangnam 1970,” directed by Yoo Ha, is set in 1970s against the backdrop of the real estate development of Seoul’s Gangnam district and stars Lee in the lead role.

The film is due for release on Jan. 21.
