I’m always so curious about what K-actor Lee Jun Ki would do next in his acting journey and I hope it will be in a genre he hasn’t done in years. He’s been offered the male lead in summer 2021 K-drama Link, which has the leading lady Moon Ga Young. The drama has had other male leads rumored including Kim Sun Ho and Lee Jae Wook (both awesome) and what’s funny is that any of these talented actors would totally play the same character differently lol. Sadly soon after the casting news came out his agency confirmed that he received the offer but has declined. Bummer.
Lee Jun Ki has been a fave of mine for nearly two decades and his transformation has been nothing short of impeccably done. Despite having the normal share of hits and misses, he’s never gotten flack because he’s always giving his all. Last year’s thriller melodrama Flower of Evil was a total package of great writing, acting and directing, and gave him the chance to stretch yet again with a mysterious role. The drama was popular around greater Asia as well and this month Lee Jun Ki has multiples pages showcasing his modeling range for the Chinese magazine Waves. It’s funny that when he debuted he was considered so exotic and he really did pave the way for many flower boy actors after him by showing that looks did not limit his breadth.
