Lee Je Hoon is not by any means new to the spotlight. Possibly one of the hardest working actors in the industry, he has diligently appeared in at least one production each year, since the start of his decade-long career.

As a child, Lee Je Hoon did not dream of becoming a star. He discovered his passion for acting in college and dropped out of Korea University to join the School of Drama at the Korea National University of Arts. He made his first foray into the film business in a short film They Live by Night in 2007 and received his big break in the indie film Bleak Night in 2010.

After acclaimed turns in My Paparotti, which he starred alongside veteran actor Han Suk Kyu, and the box-office hit Architecture 101, the 34-year-old added the commercially successful fantasy crime drama Signal to his repertoire in 2016.

Despite his rising popularity, Lee Je Hoon has an admirable work ethic. He believes an actor's ethic should be an ingrained part of his character and learns by observing his senior co-stars. But all the hard work has come at the expense of any long-term romance. When quizzed about his love life in interviews, he confessed that he has not dated anyone seriously in six years.

And while Lee Je Hoon has worked with several A-listers like Cho Jin Woong, Kim Hye Soo, and Shin Min Ah, he still found himself starstruck when he came face-to-face with his favourite celebrity, G-Dragon. His adorable encounter with the BIGBANG member on a variety show earned him an invitation to the singer's concert!
