Man Crush Monday!!!
Here we are on another Monday!
This week in the KDrama Community, we're celebrating Historical Dramas, and there's only one man I can think of that I super crush on in Historical Shows. That's right, it's the ever talented
Lee Joon Ki! Name: Lee Joon Gi (Jun/Ki alt spellings)
Birthday: April 17, 1982 (Korean Age 35)
Debuted in 2001 as a model
His first acting role was in The King and the Clown (a film) in 2005. He was apparently chosen simply because he could do handstands well.
He released his first solo album in 2006, entitled My Jun, My Style.
His first historical drama was Iljimae, a drama based on a Chinese Robin-Hood character, in 2008.
He served in the military from May 2010 to Feb 2012. While he was serving, he participated in a military musical about the 60th anniversary of the Korean War, entitled Voyage of Life.
Because of the timing of his military service, he was forced to give up the lead role in Faith (which ended up starring Lee Min Ho!). Can you imagine JoonGi as Choi Young? My very favorite feature about him is his smile.
It's like a sudden and explosive light from above. He's been in several historical dramas, but you probably know him best in two more recent dramas,
Scholar Who Walks the Night
Scarlet Heart: Ryeo
However he has also been a part of Iljimae, Arang and the Magistrate, Gunman in Joseon, as well as the two above. In The Scholar Who Walks the Night he plays the titular scholar, Kim Sung-yeol, a vampire haunted by the death of his first love.
While filming, there was an accident on set that caused him to have to go to the ER for a nasal fracture.
He won the MBC Top 10 stars award for his work in the series, and the drama won Best Historical Drama in the Dramafever Awards in 2016. In Scarlet Heart Ryeo, he plays fourth prince Wang So, the so-called "Wolf Dog" opposite IU's HaeSoo, along with Kang HaNeul's eighth prince Wang Wook.
The Drama was even aired on US television in the greater LA area with English subtitles from September 26 - November 29.
The drama won the Korea Brand Awards K-Culture Pride award, while Joongi won the Hallyu Star Award, Top 10 Stars Award, and with IU, the Best Couple Award at the SBS Drama Awards. Most recently though, you can find Lee Joon Gi on American big screens, and movie screens across the world in the final chapter of the Resident Evil series.
He plays CEO Lee, leader of the Umbrella Corporation, and as in many of his dramas, he does his own stunts in the movie. He garnered the attention of his co-star Milla Jovovitch. She has since gushed to several interviewers on international shows about his talents, and how hardworking he is.
His skills made him the first pick of director Wes Anderson, and initially, Joongi turned the role down, before accepting it after parts of the script were edited. I hope you've enjoyed yet another Man Crush Monday, look forward to my Underrated Star card on Wednesday, and Fantastic Female Friday card!
