Lee Sun-kyun 이선균 PROFILE Name: Lee Sun-kyun [이선균] Born: March 2, 1975 | Songpa-gu, Seoul, South Korea Body: 180cm | 70kg | Type A Family: Wife (actress Jeon Hye-jin), 2 sons Education: BaeMyeong High School > Wonkwang University (English Literature, dropped out) > Korea National University of Arts (Acting Department / Art History) Military Service: Republic of Korea Army (ROKA) | Rank: Sergeant Religion: Protestantism Nickname: Soju President (nickname given by Ha Jung-woo) MBTI: INTP Debut: 1999 Bijou <It's Okay | 괜찮아> Music Video || 2001 musical ‘Rocky Horror Show’ Agency: HODU&U Entertainment [ Instagram | Post.naver | Facebook ] Official SNS: Instagram | DaumCafe | [kofic] Born in 1975, LEE Sun-kyun discovered acting through the drama club of his college, and his passion was such that he eventually decided to drop out of university after just a year and enter the newly established Korea National University of Arts in 1994. After a starring role in the short film <Psycho Drama> (2000), he made a magnificent debut on stage as Brad in the musical <Rocky Horror Picture Show> (2001), soon followed by a recurrent role in the sitcom <Lovers> (2001-2002). He realized before long that it was not easy to break into the film industry. He might have appeared as a doctor supporting the female lead fighting against cancer in <Scent of Love>, and as one of the lovebirds in <Love So Divine>, but most of the time he was cast for small roles or leading roles of short films and TV series. He finally earned good notices after playing a sweet, romantic guy in the popular TV drama series <Coffee Prince> (2007) and an honest doctor in medical drama series <Behind the White Tower> (2007), but did not hold onto this nurtured image. Instead, he has polished his acting caliber by appearing in the films of Hong Sangsoo, renowned among film critics and festival for his unique perspective on ordinary life and relationships, starting with <Night and Day> (2008) in which he played an international student from North Korea and followed by the short <Lost in the Mountains> in which he was a man used as “bait” by a woman wanting to provoke her boyfriend. LEE also starred in <Sakwa> (2005), an on-screen melodrama released in 2008 which received critical acclaim for its realistic portrayal of a romance. LEE has appealed to the female spectators appearing in the TV drama <Pasta> (2010), a story of work and love set in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant, and the film <Petty Romance> (2010), about the love of an adult cartoonist. In 2011, LEE co-starred with a veteran actor PARK Joong-hoon in cop drama <Officer of the Year> and in 2012 he stormed the box office with KIM Min-hee in the mystery thriller <Helpless> (2011) and with LIM Soo-jung in MIN Kyu-dong’s <All about My Wife> (2012). LEE teamed up with HONG Sangsoo once more for <Nobody’s Daughter Haewon> (2012) and <Our Sunhi> (2012), the latter of which took the Best Director Prize at the Locarno International Film Festival in 2013. In 2014, he returned to the commercial realm as the lead of the mid-level thriller <A Hard Day> (2013), which was invited to the Cannes Film Festival’s Director’s Fortnight sidebar. On the back of that commercial and critical success, LEE starred alongside KIM Go-eun in <The Advocate : A Missing Body> (2015), as an attorney who uncovers a mystery behind a murder case. After playing a sympathetic North Korean doctor in KIM Byung-woo’s action thriller <Take Point> (2018) and his top billing role in crime thriller <Jo Pil-ho: The Dawning Rage> (2018), LEE was brought to a wider audience after portraying the father of a rich family in the dark comedy <PARASITE>, the latest from world-famous director BONG Joon-ho which took home the most prestigious award in the cinema world, the Palme d’Or of the Cannes Film Festival.

A chef-like actor who handles various characters with his own recipe. He renews his heyday every time After graduating from the School of Drama at the Korea National University of Arts, Lee Sunkyun began his acting career through the musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show and TV sitcom Lovers in 2001. Lee is a versatile actor who can play various roles in different genres and platforms. He made impressions with some small roles in various popular genre films such as comic, action, and melodrama films. The year 2007 was when he started to enjoy huge popularity. In the medical drama Behind the White Tower, he appeared as Choi Doyoung, a young doctor who sticks to his values and beliefs at a general hospital intertwined with chaotic politics, imprinting his image into the audience. After that, Lee played Choi Hansung, a caring character in the romantic comedy series Coffee Prince, which would be recorded in the history of Korean dramas. Thanks to the character, Lee Sunkyun has been ranked among the top actors. Since then, the actor has achieved his unique status in the romantic comedy genre by playing an angry chef in the much-talked romantic comedy Pasta (2010). Meanwhile, Lee expanded his scope to the action and noir genre on screen through the crime action film A Hard Day (2014), which was invited to the Midnight Screening section of the Cannes Film Festival. The actor was well-received for his excellent performance with his unique portrayal of the loser and twerp character Ko Geonsoo, a detective who revealed his true nature to cover up the murder he committed. 

President Park in Bong Joonho’s PARASITE served as another turning point for Lee, who kept renewing his heyday. From Director Bong’s perspective, Lee Sunkyun was a new card, and it was an unexpected casting for both the actor himself and the audience. Expanding his signature multi-layered performance, Lee has taken another leap as an actor, performing President Park, who is at the top of the class pyramid created through capitalism that cannot be defined as good or evil. PARASITE won the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion at the SAG. 

Lee Sunkyun’s strength can be compared to a dish rich in ingredients. He expresses a humble and weak side, along with a caring and human side at the same time, the qualities everyone has. Also, his unique character with an annoyed voice tone serves as a good ingredient for his performance. In My Mister, which was recently distributed on Netflix and highly praised by Paulo Coelho, Lee played Park Donghoon, who revealed the lonely inner side of a middle-aged man, confirming his status in romantic melodrama to audiences around the world. His next film is the disaster movie Silence, chosen among a flurry of casting proposals from everywhere, including Hollywood. Lee depicts Cha Jungwon, who struggles to survive a disaster with his daughter. [Written by Lee Hwajung .
