[ kofic ] LEE Jung-jae is an actor who hardly opens up himself. A rare display of emotions may become a critical drawback to an actor. But that is not the case for him. He turns his weakness to an incomparable strength. He has an indifferent look on his face but unveils an inner wound that runs deep at heart. Strangely enough, his unemotional face makes a good fodder for romanticism. His romantic image has extended from a TV drama, <Sand Glass>, to films such as <An Affair> portraying a love affair with his fiancée’s elder sister ([LEE Mi-sook] ), <Asako in Ruby Shoes> where his character fell for a Japanese woman ([Tachibana Misato]) that he met just online, <Il Mare> where he costarred with [Gianna Jun] and portrayed love unbounded by time and space, <Interview> that asked endless questions over love, <Over the Rainbow> which rediscovered the forgotten first love. All of his characters are as charming as a face on TV commercials. LEE never loses his usual coolness even when he punctuates his career once in a while with self-destructive characters.

Born in 1972, LEE Jung-jae debuted in 1993 in the youth series <Dinosaur Teacher>. He made a strong impression the following year in his first big screen role in <The Young Man> (1994) and achieved a rare grand slam by picking up newcomer awards from the three most prestigious award ceremonies in Korea (which are Blue Dragon Film Awards, Baeksang Arts Awards and Grand Bell Awards). Action drama film <City of the Rising Sun> (1999) marked his first lead role in cinema, and he quickly became a bankable actor.  His major movie roles include <City of the Rising Sun>, <The Last Witness>, <Oh! Brothers> and <Typhoon>. After a brief outing to the TV screens, he returned to the film sector with his role as a macho man in <The Housemaid> who cheated on his wife and seduced his housemaid. LEE’s image began to change in 2012, as he appeared in a charismatic turn in the smash hit <The Thieves>. He drew even more notice in 2013 for his leading role in the well-reviewed gangster saga <New World> and for his scene-stealing supporting role in the period hit <The Face Reader>, which earned him many industry awards. 2014 saw him take on the role of an MMA fighter who must go on the run as he is forced to participate in a dangerous game show when his brother is kidnapped in the film <Big Match>. Re-teaming with director CHOI Dong-hoon, LEE was seen the following summer in the period thriller <Assassination>, alongside HA Jung-woo and JEON Ji-hyun.  After another successful turn as a macho hero in <Operation Chromite> (2016), he incarnated the King of the Underworld in the fantasy epic <Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds> (2017) and its follow-up. Next for him was the role of a pastor investigating a mysterious cult in the occult thriller <SVAHA : THE SIXTH FINGER> (2019). In 2020, he starred alongside HWANG Jung-min in <DELIVER US FROM EVIL> (2020), the most-watched film in Korea during the Covid-19 pandemic, drawing more than 4 million spectators to theaters.


[ KoBiz+THESCREEN | Lee Hwajung] Lee Jungjae   

He knows how to make a ‘cool’ appearance. As a top actor since his youth star days, he is a passionate innovator who renews his prime character every time he appears in a film.


In 1995, the drama Sandglass took South Korea by storm, and it was a critical shot for Lee Jungjae to impress the public.  Playing the role of bodyguard Baek Jaehee, Lee shook the hearts of viewers with his character silently standing by the heroine with intense eyes and action performance without a single line.  After leaving this indelible impression, Lee Jungjae made himself known on screen by playing Hongki, a young man in the youth action film City of the Rising Sun (1998), directed by Kim Sungsoo.  Perfectly depicting a young man dazzled by money and dreams, Lee has since been always in his element without stepping down from the top star position on screen.


From the sexy characters in Firebird (1997) and An Affair (1998) to the melodramatic heroes in Interview (2000), Il Mare (2000), Asako in Ruby Shoe (2000), and Last Present (2001), as well as the comic character in Oh! Brothers (2003), Lee Jungjae showed a variety of images through the films.  However, the character that defined all of his various aspects was Hoon in The Housemaid (2010), which was invited to the competition section of the Cannes International Film Festival.  Hoon, a mean owner who plays tricks on the housemaid, is a character that shows the essence of Lee Jungjae’s acting tone.  Since then, in The Thieves (2012), which opened the prelude to tentpole films in Korea, Lee Jungjae caught the public’s attention as a sneaky thief Popeye.  In crime noir New World (2012), he formed another fandom by playing the role of Lee Jasung, an undercover cop who walks in a tightrope between the police and criminal organizations.


Another chance where Lee Jungjae took another leap forward was the role of Prince Suyang in the historical film The Face Reader (2013) directed by Han Jaerim.  By creating a new image of a young Prince Suyang who is filled with ambition, Lee vividly proved how much impact an actor can have on the film.  Lee appeared in the mid-section of the film and dominated the scene with his overwhelming appearance.  “Do I look like a king?” is one of the most memorable lines of his.


After jumping to the next level with The Face Reader, Lee Jungjae played Yeom Seokjin, a two-faced provisional government agent in the period film Assassination (2015), a character who shook the subplot of the film.  Lee’s performance, which features the combination of sophisticated and urban images, animal instinct, and opposing elements of meanness and innocence, is always seductive and transcends good and evil.  Recently, he played some intense characters, such as a pastor fighting heresy in SVAHA : The Sixth Finger (2019) and a Korean-Japanese Yakuza member in Deliver Us From Evil (2020).  In 2021, he will direct and star in the spy action Hunt, raising people’s expectations.


[ ^ 13th New York Asian Film Festival (2014-07-06) - Korean Actor in Focus: Lee Jung-Jae ^
Discovered while working at a cafe in the trendy Seoul neighborhood of Apgujeong, Lee Jung-jae began his career as a model. He made the transition to television with 1993's Dinosaur Teacher and became a star almost overnight. He gained his first film role in 1994 in The Young Man but that same year the TV drama Feelings cemented Lee as a household name. Sandglass saw his silent bodyguard character gain more and more screen time over the course of increasingly behemoth ratings because audiences just wanted to see more of him. Lee was a heartthrob and went on to star in several more dramas before a starring role in E J-yong's 1998 romantic drama An Affair turned him into a full fledged movie star.  Lee followed this up with a Blue Dragon Film Award for his role in 1999's City of the Rising Sun, where he played a gambling addicted swindler who befriends a washed up boxer. He appeared in romantic dramas and comedies such as Il Mare, Last Present, and Over The Rainbow, but he also starred in action and thriller films like The Last Witness and Typhoon. Recently he has had a string of hits with films like the international crime caper The Thieves, gangster political film New World and Joseon-era court drama The Face Reader -- the latter two films in particular have demonstrated Lee's maturation as a character actor, where he has delivered some of his best dramatic performances to date.  It is for this long career, and the fact that he is one of the biggest stars in Korea and continues to challenge himself professionally, that we are celebrating Lee Jung-jae as this year's Korean Actor in Focus. We're bringing Lee Jung-jae over with the support of Korean Cultural Service in New York and screening The Face Reader, New World and Il Mare, all with Lee in attendance! ]

Awww, I loved seeing him in "Il Mare" even though his role was more... "silent". But I never got a chance to see him in anything else.

Thank for starting Lee Jang Jae thread. Been searching for his latest news not much.

Typhoon seem to promode JDG more than him.

I think LJJ he's really great actor. He's trying to change his charactor nearly every flim that he plays.

I saw 6 of his films they all good. I like him in AN AFFAIR the most.

I read from the other web that after OH BROTHER ,he took 2 years off.

He has opened Italian Restuarent.

Anybody know anything about him please share.

Oh yay! Someone finally started a LJJ thread! I was waiting for one. :lol: I think he's a great actor, a bit underrated and overshadowed by his contemporaries imo. I love him in Il Mare and An Affair.

Now if only another person will start a Yoo ji tae thread that would be perfect... :wub:

I've only seen LJJ in Il Mare and An Affair ... 2 very contrasting roles but he delivers in both! In An Affair especially, such a bold & daring role. Love him with Lee Mi Sook in the movie... despite being a senior actress, LMS is such a charismatic actress... one that we don't see that often.

Oh... didn't know that LJJ has his own Italian restaurant... no wonder, we don't see him that often like other K-stars. Thanks for the info, bha-mee.

Hoping that the upcoming movie will showcase his intense talent even more, bringing in a much-deserved recognition & appreciation.

Now... waiting for another LJJ fan... our Inez to show up at the thread! :lol:

**bha-mee, I can't change the title, only the mod can change

OH MY GOD, Lee Jung Jae had a girl friend?????????So SAD all of sudden :(<_<:lol: I think Lee Jung Jae is really perfect, speaking not as a fan.( He and Lee Young Ae are the best Korean actor in my heart). You know when you are a fan of some actor - actress, you love them in everything...You think they are all great, when the truth is they aren't that great. But I really really think Lee Jung Jae is a GREAT ACTOR :rolleyes::P:lol:

Is Il Mare really sad? I haven't got the chance to watch it :(
