Lee Joon Gi is an actor of many talents who grabbed the hearts of audiences from all around the world. The actor is an acknowledged hallyu star who charmed audiences with his good looks and talent over the years.
For the past 3 years the actor has only been doing historical dramas, ever since 2014 he has put his sole focus on doing historical dramas with various setting and intense projects.
The actor actually apologized for doing so, for only doing historical dramas. On the 18th of July, the main cast of highly anticipated tvN drama “Criminal Minds” attended its press conference in Gangnam.
He was asked if he found it difficult to star in this drama, to which he admitted that he had difficulty at first, he said,
“At first, it was slightly awkward because its different from the historical dramas I usually do. Since I live in the present time, it was easy for me to adjust myself to the atmosphere.”
He even playfully apologized to fans for doing so many historical dramas, he said,
“I am sorry I do many historical dramas instead of other types of dramas.”
The actor was a part of many memorable historical dramas throughout the years including ‘Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,’ ‘Scholar Who Walks the Night,’ ‘Joseon Gunman’ where he met his current girlfriend and ‘Arang and the Magistrate,’ among the many other historical dramas he did.
Meanwhile, the highly anticipated drama “Criminal Minds” is the first tvN drama series to air on Wednesday and Thursday, the drama is a remake of the U.S drama series with the same title.
The plot will focus on special team investigate crimes from the perspective of criminals.
The drama will air its first episode in less than a week on the 16th of June.
I didn’t know I needed this apology until I got it 😉
Seriously thou, I hated how much he preferred historical dramas to other types of dramas.
A quick search through oppa’s choices in dramas and you will notice he does historical dramas most of the time, he’s been doing so for so many years.
I feel like actors need to escape being typecast, but he seems to like it? I never saw a Korean actor who likes being cast in the same type of drama except for Lee Joon Gi.
I don’t know! I wouldn’t wanna keep playing the same type of character over and over again each year! Its sad! Lee Joon Gi is a talented actor why is he doing this to himself?
He is growing older lets admit that, the more he does historical projects, the more people will only see him as one, he won’t have the chance to grow and learn new things.
There are so many types of dramas he can do, and he can do well in all of them, there is sci-fi, rom-com, action, psychological thrillers and the list goes on and on.
I can’t find a logical explanation for why he’s only done historical dramas in the past but I am glad he is not coming back with a historical drama this year.
Aside from the fact that I hate historical dramas, it’ll be nice to see how well he can do in other types of dramas, I am so excited, psychological thrillers are so much fun.
I also took a look at what type of character he’ll play and I like how different it is from what he usually goes for, I can’t wait to next Wednesday!
