Lee Jun-ki to Star in Drama Next Spring
Today’s hottest actor Lee Jun-ki has decided to star in the tentatively titled “Heroes.” To be aired on SBS next April, the drama is about a genius scam artist who gathers a team of riffraff to fight corruption and injustice.
Lee’s last work was a historical fusion drama, “Iljimae,” which won him wide acclaim and a huge following of new fans. However, he has been concerned about living up to the fame and expectations brought on by his talented acting in “Iljimae,” and has not been able to make any decisions on his next work. Lee says his character in “Heroes” is very appealing because he has survived the darkest days of his life and rose above it all to bring justice to the world. Kwon Ki-young, the writer of “Heroes,” wanted to deliver to the Korean people a message of hope and love through the adventures of these not-so-perfect characters.
