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.

    I never been so obsessed with Korean actors for my entire life and this is the first time I'm so into Lee Joon Gi. After watching him in Scholar Who Walks the Night, Two Weeks, Iljimae & Joseon Gunman, I became a superfan not only beacause of his gorgeous face but his superb acting. And I love him more in Moon Lovers. His eyes are very expressive and he can really pull off any emotions with just his facial expressions. And I learned he's also a singer and dancer. Need I say more, his beyond perfection.

    I think I first became his fan because of his profile picture ❤ then I started watching his dramas, but the picture won me over first ~ I mean, just look at it, so gorgeous (the eyes~~) ö❤

    So... How does everyone calls him? Joon Gi? Joon Ki? Jun Gi or Jun Ki? I heard Milla Jovovich calling him JG (so it'd be Joon Gi or Jun Gi) but is that how all the fans call him? And what about in awards and events? Do they call him Joon Gi too?

      I call him joon gi because that's what his official website calls him, but you can say any, it's still the same pronunciation (and you don't need the spaces either, or you can use a hyphen)

    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. @_@"
