Lee Joon Gi

Lee Joon Gi, previously credited as Lee Jun Ki, is a South Korean actor, model and singer, often regarded as a kkonminam ("flower boy") icon. He rose to fame in "The King and the Clown".
Joon Gi first became interested in the performing arts as a high school student after watching a performance of Hamlet. He moved to Seoul with a dream to work in the entertainment industry rather than getting into college. For the next couple of years, Joon Gi worked at various part-time jobs before he got accepted into the Seoul Institute of the Arts. He debuted as a model in 2001.
In 2005, his first major acting role came in hit film "The King and the Clown". Producer Lee Joon Ik revealed the story of how he chose Joon Gi for "The King and the Clown" by just seeing him do handstands. After the film, Joon Gi became "an icon" of the South Korean "pretty boy" trend. Joon Gi has since tried to diminish this kkonminam image.
On 3 May 2010, Joon Gi enlisted in the Republic of Korea Army to serve his mandatory military service. He had initially applied for a postponement because he was in the midst of shooting film "Grand Prix", was cast to star in television drama "Faith" and to represent Korea as a goodwill ambassador at the 2010 Shanghai Expo. However Military Manpower Administration declined and send a final notice for enlistment, leading him to pull out of both projects. After serving 21 months of active duty, Joon Gi was discharged on 16 February 2012.

    No one should be allowed to be this handsome. This is totally unfair.
    Well... at least he's not tall as a wall and carved like some. If he was, perfection would have a name. @_@"

    LGK is 1 of my fav., actors, the 1st time I've see him was in "My Girl" & I didn't like him then but he impressed me in his other dramas like Arang & the Magistrate, The Scholar Who Walks The Night and of course Scarlet Heart.

    Any1 noticed that his character never gets a straightforward happy ending? I always feel sorry for his characters b/c they usually sacrifice their life or ends up a lonely person w/ memories. I hope in his future drama projects, his characters will get more straightforward happy endings.. Please feel free to comment. : D

      Wow, i just realized it after u mentioned this... Wondering why he didn't take a cheerful happy ending character.. hmm maybe he thinks that it's not challenging as an actor haha, coz a sad and depressed character has more challenges to portray... it will have deep and more varied look i guess.. a happy go lucky character often only have a smily face lol.. i hope he will take a more cheerful character too, pray hard
