 Lee Sun Gyun's Career

Lee studied theater at the Korea National University of Arts . In 2002, he debuted in the musicalThe Rocky Horror Show.

Relegated to small supporting roles for many years, he achieved his breakthrough in 2007 with the critically lauded medical seriesWhite Towerand the highly popular romantic dramaThe 1st Shop of Coffee Prince. BesidesCoffee Prince, he has worked with director Lee Yoon-jung two other times—in the sports-themedTaereung National Villagein 2005, and in slice-of-life dramaTriplein 2009.

Lee was appointed as ambassador for the Health Insurance Review Agency in 2007, and won an award from the Korea Advertisers Association in 2008.

Despite his burgeoning fame, Lee then turned to low-budget arthouse films to polish his acting caliber. He starred in three projects by Hong Sang-soo , a director renowned for his realistic portrayal of ordinary lives.Lee also headlinedPaju, the long-awaited follow-up to director Park Chan-ok'sJealousy is My Middle Name.He later won the Best Actor award at the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria International Film Festival held in Spain forPaju. Film distributor Myung Film quoted the judging committee as handing Lee high points for portraying the anguish his character felt for loving his wife's younger sister. This is the first acclaim that Lee has received at a film festival since his debut.

WithPasta(in which he played a brilliant-but-abrasive chef opposite Gong Hyo-jin ) Lee successfully shook off his "gentle" TV drama image,and the series' popularity made him a bankable romantic leading man.Petty Romancereunited him with hisMy Sweet Seoulco-star Choi Kang-hee ,and one-upmanship action comedyThe Apprehenderssoon followed.

Lee showed his support for the revival of Drama Special (formerly Drama City ) by starring inOur Slightly Risque Relationship(for which he later won at the KBS Drama Awards ). He has continually defended the importance of the short drama format as a training ground for young talent, acknowledging their contribution to his own career.

He next starred in mystery thrillerHelpless, the Korean film adaptation of Japanese novelist Miyabe Miyuki 's novelAll She Was Worth.In romantic comedyAll About My Wife, Lee's character is married to an outwardly perfect woman ( Im Soo-jung ) who in reality is the worst wife possible but is too timid to divorce her, so he hires a Casanova ( Ryu Seung-ryong ) to seduce her.
