In fact, it was even before his onscreen acting debut. Back in 2009, he became a winner of the first season in the talent show Superstar K.

Seo debuted as an actor with a supporting role in Love Rain (2012), but it was Reply 1997 that was his real breakthrough! Since then, he has acted in various television series. Here are some of his best performances you should check out:

      I love Lee Joon Gi

      He is multi-talented & versatile.

      I watched his movies & dramas.

      He is not only good looking but also a superb actor. He is able to exhibit emotions which are varied such as anger, annoyance, exasperation & sadness. When he cried it tore my heart & i cried too. When he laughed he was so charming & it light me up.

      He played the difficult roles very well.

      Not only he is an action star, he has substance, a character actor.

      A bonus that he sang & danced so well & he enjoyed & loved it - so natural.

      His dance moves were well executed, complicated, varied & vigorous.

      Lee Joon Gi is my heart throb.

      Wish the audience appreciates him as much as i do.

      I am sending lots of love & wish him success in all his endeavours.

      Absolutely spot on. Lee Joon Gi is a fantastic multi-talented and gorgeous actor and performer. When it comes to acting, none can be compared to him. Lee Joon Gi morphs into his roles. The impact he has made as an actor on the globe, particularly for Moon Lovers, is enough evidence to show that he stands head and shoulders above the rest.

      There are a lot of crime series and movies I've been watching that showcase more mature Korean actors who are still "hot" and very talented. Here's a thumbs up to all of them, as well. Are any of the veteran actors related to the younger ones?
