Biography

Lee Joon-Gi was born on April 17th, 1982 in Busan, South Korea. His immediate family consists of his parents and one younger brother. While growing up, Joon-Gi was a fairly normal kid who enjoyed sports & computers. He first became interested in the performing arts as a high school student after watching a play of “Hamlet.”[1] Lee Joon-Gi initially failed to get into college and, because of this, he moved to Seoul with almost nothing, but a dream to work in the entertainment field. For the next couple of years, Joon-Gi worked at various part time jobs, before gaining acceptance into the Seoul Institute of the Arts.

In 2001, Lee Joon-Gi made his debut as a model for fashion brand So Basic, appearing alongside actress Hee-seon Kim.[2] He would go on to appear in many more CF's and music videos. Joon-Gi continued to audition for various acting roles, but not did not find immediate success. In 2004, Joon-Gi landed his first substantive acting role in the TV drama "Star's Echo" - co-produced by MBC & Fuji TV. Joon-Gi would also make his acting debut on the big screen in the same year. Competing alongside 2000 other participants, Joon-Gi landed a role in the Japanese film "The Hotel Venus." During his time working on the set of "The Hotel Venus," Lee Joon-Gi found himself less than pleased with his management company & having to work part time jobs to support himself. "The Hotel Venus" would go on to become moderately successful in Japan selling 2.8 million tickets. Lee Joon-Gi would also start work on his first Korean film "Flying Boys" in 2004.

One year later, Lee Joon-Gi would land the role of "Gong-gil" in the 2005 film "The King and the Clown." The film was an unusual historical drama centered around the relationship between two male clown actors - one having traditional masculine traits and the other (played by Lee Joon-Gi) having highly effeminate traits. To land the role of Gong-gil, Joon-Gi endured four separate auditions. While filming "The King and the Clown," Joon-Gi spoke in a higher pitched voice and acted effeminate even when not in front of the camera to stay in the character of Gong-gil. The movie with little expectations upon its release, would then go on to become the highest grossing film of its time, selling 12.3 million tickets. Lee Joon-Gi also appeared concurrently on the small screen in the SBS drama series "My Girl," further boosting his popularity & making him one of the most popular actors in Asia.

After "The King and the Clown," Joon-Gi has usually taken on more masculine roles to avoid typecasting. He starred in two successful television series, "Time Between Dog And Wolf" & "Il Ji-Mae: The Phantom Thief," while appearing on the big screen in "Fly, Daddy, Fly," "Virgin Snow" (his second Japanese film), & the box office hit "May 18."

In 2009, Lee Joon-Gi worked primarily on his musical career, holding fan concerts in South Korea, China, and Japan, while releasing several digital download singles. Lee Joon-Gi was also appointed an ambassador for Korea tourism by the Korea Tourism Organization.[3] He is now set to star in the upcoming MBC drama "Hero" this November.

Notes

  1. Lee Joon-Gi began his two year mandatory military obligation starting on May 3rd, 2010. He tried to postpone his military requirements to finish filming the movie "Grand Prix" and SBS drama series "Faith," but was unable to get an extension. Because of this Lee Joon-Gi dropped out of both projects.
  2. Lee Joon-Gi was discharged from the military on February 16, 2012.
  3. Lee Joon-Gi will hold a comeback fan meeting tour titled "Coming Back" in Japan. The fan meetings will be held on March 16 in Nagoya, March 18 in Yokohama and March 19 in Osaka. During the tour Lee Joon-Gi will also promote songs from his new single "Deucer".
  4. Due to positive reception of his single "Deucer," released on March 16, Lee Joon-Gi will release a 9 track album titled "Deucer" on April 25, 2012.

Karen3235 ROHM Elec Phils Hello, JG. I don't even know if this message will ever reach you... but even so, I'd still write here so whoever might get the time to read them could understand how beautiful person you are... at least the way I see you. You are such an amazing actor... a talented singer... and a very good dancer, and I mean a "really, really" good dancer... But you know what? I was even more convinced that you are not just an actor with all the glitz and glamour when I saw your interviews particularly the ones when you were serving the military... You were answering the questions intelligently and so naturally at that. You can keep up with anybody... You must really be very smart... the very reason you are who you are... distinctively shining among everyone else in the industry. Keep it up, but please never change the kind of spirit you have in you... the "you" we love most! Take good care of yourself. May God bless you and may He grant your heart's wishes too.

carmen you are a good actor, gentleman and you have a good heart...keep up the good work...God Bless

Aradia I seldom gush at Korean actors, but Lee Jun ki is an exception. I think he's one of the most talented actors I've ever seen. He could be of different characters - blending with the story and in his elements very well. He is like a chameleon. I especially adore him in Iljimae. He was hilarious in Hero. I haven't seen Arang and the magistrate and Two weeks yet. I will definitely buy the dvds soon. Kudos, Lee Jun ki! Keep up the good work!

Licci plz, update the info. He just released a new mini-album 'My Dear'. You can find it on Youtube as Lee Jun Ki Mini Album My Dear... it's totally daebak!!! :D

sumi Hello my lovely boy. Dan saranhanda. Thank you for your good job. Chincha chincha gumabsimmida. I am your Iranian fan. By my dear boy...

midoshi he is a great actor, i think he is the best actor among the others I'm watching all his movies and dramas these days. i am a big fan of him, but in south asia korean actors do not have much fans, so they never come to visit here. so sad. :( . thats ok. be healthy lee joon gi.

Elizabeth McCormick what an outstanding actor, first time to see him in Two Weeks, have been glued to the tv since first episode. His dramatics are so true to life and he finally appears to be so kind and caring after helping the lady give birth, that is when I really appreciated his character. Can't wait to see him in more dramas.

Moore i love his total work in each dramas: iljimae, my girl, Arang, and two weeks. keep fighting, Junki :)

Mia Congratulations Lee Jun Ki for winnning Outstanding Korean Actor at Seoul International Drama Awards 2013. You deserve it sooo much.

maia Hello LJK. Im Maia your no. 1 fan in the Philippines. Im 34 yrs. old and happily married with a daughter of 7 yrs. old named Kim. I first saw you on “the king & the clown” which was aired here in our country January of 2012. From then on I started searching you on google and found out you were to be discharged on February, 2012. I downloaded your movie Virgin Snow then watched Arang & the Magistrate; Iljimae, Time Between Dog & Wolf and even variety shows you were guest in. I just loved how you act and it was great. Im a huge fan of yours and with that, I put your pictures on my smart phone as my home screen & lock screen wallpapers. Then told my daughter that you are my boyfriend (means a boy friend). But my daughter was wise enough to never believed my story. For her its impossible coz you’re far from our country. Then later on my daughter asked me, “mama, does he know that he is your boyfriend?” and that gave me burst of laughter. I told my husband about it and he just laughed. Now whenever my husband wants to watch his favorite show (because we do only have 1 TV in our bedroom), he’ll just say “Ma, you go watch your Korean soaps on your laptop. And I just love my husband. He’s just too considerate and understanding. Now I will just have to wait for TWO WEEKS. Fighting and God bless!

crescent Godbless you.. hope to see you in person.. (someday! lol! :) )

hannah we look forward that someday lee joon ki and yoon eun hye will have a project together... and we hope that our request will come true..

kuro long hair!!!!!!!!!!

Dianne Amazing actor! I wanted to watch Il Ji-Mae because I've been trying to watch all of Park Si-Hoo's movies/dramas; but what I found was Lee Joon-Gi in the lead role. Then, I realized that he had changed the spelling of his name to Lee Jun-Ki, who I had already seen in "Virgin Snow". I've said all of that to say that "amazing" doesn't begin to describe the actor that he is in these two movie/drama. I will be watching for more of him now that his army service is completed! Change the pictures of him on this page -- they don't even resemble the actor/person. Maybe he thinks it looks "cool", but natural hair makes your whole face light up with softness. The "cool" style makes you look hard and harsh... sorry, just my opinion from the State of Alabama in the USA!!! Best wishes in all you do in the future!!!

rohmah DAEBAK!!!! I love almost all your drama, especially ILJIMAE Lee Joon Ki Oppa... Will you marry me? hahahaha

ZanaLuvKoreA And Lee Jun Ki, welcome back!! Great to see you started acting again..

NightLizard ^___^ He was soooo cute in "Virgin Snow" and I was voting for him in "My Girl"! :))))

25warner99 I think Lee Jun Ki is the best, cutest and attractive K actor. When he smiles, my heart melt and really fall in love with him. When he cries, my heart break and cry together with him. When I watched the drama "My Girl", I am really angry with the female lead. Why did she make my pretty boy to cry? Lee Jun Ki also looks good when he cries. Lee Jun Ki, plz don't drink alcohol so much.
