Lee Bum Soo

Lee Beom Soo is a South Korean actor. He made his acting debut in the 1990 film "Yes, Let's Look Up At the Sky Now and Again". Following his debut, he appeared in films including "The Ginkgo Bed", "City of the Rising Sun", "The Anarchists", "Jungle Juice" and "Wet Dreams", but it was the 2003 film "Singles" that elevated him into the first rank among movie stars. The Korean press has dubbed him "The Little Giant of Chungmuro" (Korean equivalent of Hollywood). In 2003, he married Park who was companion of his university. They divorced just four months later. Lee Beom Soo remarried in 2010 to Lee Yoon Jin, who was his English tutor. The couple now have a daughter.

    One of my favorite actors. Unfortunately the last good drama role was H.O.A.S.

      Define H.O.A.S.???

      Hold On A Second?
      Hold On A Stick?
      HomeOwner ASsociation?
      Horn of Africa Services?
      HO As -- Hydroxide and Arsenic?

      Damn I'm getting old for net slang, it's probably something bad. :)

    He's a very good actor, and I like the way he portrayed Kwon Yul. Him and Yoona had pretty good chemistry, despite their age differences. At first, the age that showed on his face bothered me, but now, I've come to like it and see the good in it. I was happy to see that an older male in the drama world was given a chance at playing the lead role. Despite the age difference like I said before, I liked it, and I hope this inspires to Korea to have more dramas like that. I liked the idea of a father, who helps run a country, and raises his kids on his own, find it in himself to love another and give himself a chance at happiness again. Everyone deserves the chance at love, and everyone deserves happiness. The past is in the past. ^3^ c:

      Isn't this a trend on this site these days though? Practically all actor photos these days are replaced with similar-looking, almost generic headshots that take away a little of the old flavour.

      I totally get there is a need to make faces as visible as possible (especially on profile pages) and these changes are good for many reasons but I don't know, I guess I find it kind of generic. It's hard getting used to new photos at times. Though I admit his smile here is very inviting :-)

      Great job on making those changes though. Thanks for your hard work, MDLers.
