His acting ability has been built up through

'blood, sweat, and tears'.

Now is the 'hottest' time for Lee Junho,

a current idol singer and actor


Here’s a professional entertainer in a boy’s mask. Lee Junho is a reliable lead actor of films and dramas, a lead vocalist and main dancer of ‘2PM,’ a K-Pop group, and a musician who is going on an overseas tour with his solo album that he wrote and composed all by himself. Now, we can’t imagine Lee Junho anymore who does not act nor stand on stage. What has completed him now is his challenge, effort, and passion. This is why the song, ‘Blood, Sweat, and Tears’ suits him like his theme song. He never looks tired. When he smiles brightly like an innocent boy, covered with blood, sweat, and tears on stage and acting, all the pain glows while melting. This boyish smile is Lee Junho’s powerful and twisted weapon.


Lee Junho debuted as a member of the singing group ‘2PM’ in 2008 and made his film debut through Cold Eyes (2013). Cold Eyes is an intellectual chase by the special police squad ‘Cold Eyes,’ which follows intelligent criminals who dream of a perfect crime. Among the stars, such as Sul Kyunggu, Han Hyojoo, and Jung Woosung, who played an intelligent villain, Lee Junho played ‘Squirrel,’ the ace and youngest detective of the surveillance team. Just like the nickname ‘Squirrel’ indicates, Lee Junho played the character with agile and whip-smart, flying around among the veteran stars. From the cheerful appearance to the grim walkout, his appearance was impressive every moment.


The film took Lee Junho to his next film, Memories of the Sword. Jeon Doyeon, who watched Lee Junho’s performance in Cold Eyes, strongly recommended him to director Park Heungsik as a guard warrior ‘Yul,’ saying, “I found an actor who is cool when he stays still and looks like a boy when he smiles.” Even among outstanding actors, the boldness to stay relaxed, eye-catching acting skills, and the spectacular action set by acrobatic dance are bonuses. Actor Lee Junho definitely stood out.


With this momentum, Lee was cast in Twenty, the first film he starred in. Twenty is Director Lee Byungheon’s first commercial film, who also directed Extreme Job, which recorded the unprecedented No. 1 in the box office hit, receiving public recognition for its differentiated sense of comedy. Along with Kang Haneul and Kim Woobin, Lee Junho showed the ‘smile and tears’ of young people who just turned 20. Lee Junho proved that he can pull off comedies and human dramas as well as action. Later, starting with Memory (2016), he expanded his acting range by starring in five TV series. The characters ranged from a tired youth who endured life with trauma, the best Chinese food chef in Korea, to a lawyer whose father is a death-row convict.


Among them, Good Manager (2017) should be pointed out in Lee Junho’s filmography. Seoyul, who is cold-blooded, is a villain but eats food more deliciously than anyone else. The director ordered Lee Junho to play the ‘unhateful villain,’ and Lee Junho responded to the director’s order with his acting of enjoying food, a symbol of ‘greed.’ Lee Junho won his first acting award that year for his ‘glutton + sociopath’ character.


As you see, Lee Junho is an actor who creates opportunities on his own. His debut was also achieved by winning the audition show ‘Superstar Survival’ with a competition ratio of 6,500:1. After the two-year hiatus due to his military service, Lee is receiving love calls from films and TV series. His goal as a singer and actor is one. ‘Let’s be trustworthy.’ He was, he is, and he will be ‘trustworthy’ enough.

Chansung and Junho



They meet when they entered SBS talent competition show "Superstar Survival" and Junho first impression of  Chansung was that he was older than him. But after learning from someone that they were same-aged, JH sought out CS. He introduced himself and asked for CS's age, and they became friends. When CS was eliminated from the competition, he cried so much thinking he was not going to see CS again, only to be surprised when he finally won and learned than CS was the first to sign up with JYPE.

They are the the members that are born in 1990 with 17 days apart, they are the maknae's of the group.

Junho usually picks and targets CS for abuse cause CS, the big baby that he is, just lets JH be with his little tantrums and fiery temperament. 

JH likes talking with CS, because the latter is a good listener.

They both have the same interest, even going to similar classes and graduate school course to pursue acting.






Jun.K and Junho

"Hyung and Dongsaeng"


When Junho first meet Jun.K, he thought he was a gangster, because he had so much swagger. He thought he probably lived and grow up in USA, specifically in Harlem. When he finally was able to talk with JK, he learned that he was from Daegu, SK.

And like all brattish younger brothers, JH will always pick on JK to tease, whether calling him Gangster, grandpa or teasing him in whichever possible ways. 

JK, the older brother that he is, loves his dongsaengs from 2PM, but he would always pick JH as his forever dongsaeng. and would shower him with adoration which JH cringes over.

They are both share their passion for song-writing, and JH would ask JK feedback. 





Wooyoung and Junho



Hottest calls them Twins due to different instances of confusion they get when they don't recognizable which one of the two sang parts of the songs. They are by far the best dancer in the group. There were also instances when both looked alike.

They are the most mischievous and childish members from the young boys line. Often pranking and teasing other members, especially the Hyung line.

Their most favorite target is usually the oldest, Jun.K. 





Nichkhun and Junho

"The patient mom and his little cute choding" 


As Junho usually gets sulky and loses his patience fast, and it's mommy khun to take care and be patient of this childish kid. 

Whatever Nichkhun tells, Junho, he will follow -- from who to drink with and to others things too. NK will be the one to guide and support the brat that is JH.

NK has been known to describe JH as the "choding" (elementary School Kid) for JH antics, tanrums, bratty self. He is also the first one to reign in JH in his moments of overexertion, like a "Mom"






Taecyeon and Junho

"Tom and Jerry"

"wacky and sulky"

 2PM’s Junho Officially Discharged From The Military

2PM’s Junho Officially Discharged From The Military

2PM’s Junho is back!


On March 20, Junho was officially discharged from the military. He enlisted May 30, 2019 as a public service worker due to a shoulder injury that he had to undergo surgery for. With Junho’s discharge, all 2PM members who were required to serve in the military have completed their duties.


Earlier this year, JYP Entertainment announced that 2PM was planning to make a full-member comeback after Junho’s discharge. In addition to original fans of 2PM, newer fans who were introduced to 2PM through the resurgence of 2PM’s 2015 hit “My House” last year have also been waiting for Junho’s return.


Junho held a V LIVE broadcast on March 21 to celebrate his return and answer questions asked by his fans. The other 2PM members also made appearances during the latter half of the broadcast (with the exception of Taecyeon who was unable to attend due to his busy schedule).

Welcome back, Junho!

2PM’s Junho teamed up with GQ Korea for his first pictorial and interview since his military discharge!

Junho, who completed his service back in March, has returned with an even more mature look than before. Despite the photo shoot being his first in a while, the idol-turned-actor seamlessly transitioned into a character befitting the day’s sentimental concept.


In the interview, he activated the artist within to discuss his upcoming music promotions. He stated, “Surprisingly, I feel calm. You could say it’s a change. I used to have a sense of having to prove something, but now, I have a sense of excitement for what I can do. I’m very excited.”


While he was serving in the military, 2PM’s 2015 song “My House” resurfaced on the music charts. It emphasized Junho’s sexy image, giving his 2015 phase performances the nickname “My House Junho.” Junho commented, “At first, I was a bit taken aback. We didn’t intend for that kind of response. Originally, the stages for ‘My House’ were meant to focus on our performance. So I tried to keep everything other than the dancing simple. Trying to look sexy? The sexy gaze? I didn’t even think of it.”


Reflecting on himself, Junho stated that something unique to him is that he lives with the beliefs that “it will work out no matter what” and that he can “make it happen.” He added, “I don’t think negative thoughts like doubting whether something will work out.”


Fans have also given Junho the nickname, “Ambitious Junho.” On this, he commented, “I like the word ‘ambition.’ In my dictionary, ‘ambition’ is a hundred times the passion of wanting to make something happen. It’s a thought I’ve had ever since I was little.”

2PM Junho Named World Vision’s Honorary Ambassador


Jul 31, 2012 | by J. Lee

2PM‘s Junho has been named an honorary ambassador of World Vision‘s “24 Hour Famine” campaign. “24 Hour Famine” is one of World Vision’s most well-known programs that allows participants to experience famine and learn about lives of children and adults who suffer from poverty, diseases, and war in many third-world countries. Currently, “24 Hour Famine” campaign is held in over 20 countries, including Korea, Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A, Japan, Germany, and so on.


As the honorary ambassador of the program, Junho will be promoting and participating in “24 Hour Famine” in Korea. If time allows, Junho is planning on participating in “24 Hour Famine” events in other Asian countries. World Vision is hoping that Junho’s participation in various Asian countries would bring more publicities and higher participation rates.


Meanwhile, Junho has been a continuous volunteer and donor at World Vision. In January 2012, Junho returned his first official vacation days in four years and visited Ethiopia with World Vision. During his stay in Ethiopia, Junho visited Elephantiasis patients and enjoyed singing and dancing with local children. He also got a chance to finally meet the child he has been sponsoring for over a year now. After his visit to Ethiopia, Junho started sponsoring another child in Ghana, Africa.


Moreover, Junho has been encouraging of his fans to join him in helping those who are in need. Previously, Junho tweeted about water pollution, lack of drinkable water, and ways to fund a filtered water pump in Ethiopia. His informative twitter post gathered 2PM fans from various countries to organize a fund together to donate two filtered water pumps to Jima-Geneti district in Ethiopia within three weeks of his initial post.


Junho stated, “I want the children I’m helping right now to grow up and be able to help others. As the honorary ambassador of World Vision’s ’24 Hour Famine,’ I want to share the joy and warmth of helping others.” A representative from World Vision Korea commented, “We would like to first thank Junho for always participating in many World Vision activities and campaigns. ’24 Hour Famine’ is an important event that allows teenagers to learn about the human race as one and the sufferings of others in this world. We hope to spread positive energy and the joy of sharing to the rest of the world with the help of Junho.”

2PM’s Junho And Lee Se Young Confirmed For New Historical Drama

2PM’s Junho And Lee Se Young Confirmed For New Historical Drama

2PM’s Junho and Lee Se Young are confirmed to star in the upcoming MBC historical melodrama “The Red Sleeve Cuff” (literal translation) together!


The new Wednesday-Thursday drama “The Red Sleeve Cuff” will be a record of an imperial court romance between a court lady, who wanted to protect the life she has chosen, and an emperor, who put the nation first before love. “The Red Sleeve Cuff,” which is based on a novel of the same name, will be helmed by director Jung Ji In, who worked on “Radiant Office” and “Hold Me Tight,” and it will be written by scriptwriter Jung Hae Ri, who worked on “Ruler: Master of the Mask.”


Junho will be playing the meticulous and proud Yi San, who was born as the direct descendant and eldest grandson of the King. Yi San puts in endless effort in order to become a good and wise king, but he has been traumatized by his father’s death. However, when he meets the ambitious court lady Seong Deok Im, he clumsily begins to show a romantic side he didn’t know he had. Yi San will one day become Joseon’s King Jeongjo, and in the process, he’ll be conflicted between choosing cold rationality as one nation’s leader and passionate love as just one man.


Through the dramas “Just Between Lovers,” “Wok of Love,” “Confession,” and “Good Manager,” Junho received praise for his stable acting and ability to take on any genre. “The Red Sleeve Cuff” will be his first project since his discharge from his mandatory service in March. Viewers are highly anticipating Junho’s transformation into Jeongjo Yi San as he goes back and forth between a level-headed monarch to a man in love.


Lee Se Young will be playing court lady Seong Deok Im, who wants to independently make decisions about her life rather than be one of the King’s many women. Seong Deok Im, who will one day become the royal noble consort Ui of the Seong clan, seeks out small moments of personal happiness inside the palace, in which pressing political matters often occur. Although her everyday life was once peaceful, her life drastically changes when she meets Yi San.


The actress has already impressed viewers with numerous projects including “The Crowned Clown,” “Doctor John,” “Memorist,” and “Kairos.” In her most recent project “Kairos,” Lee Se Young made a shocking transformation with her new short hairstyle, leaving a strong impression on viewers. Due to her detailed and skilled acting, viewers are excited to see Lee Se Young take on the role of the court lady Seong Deok Im, who will make even Joseon’s King fall in love with her.


The production team shared, “We’re excited and happy about the meeting of the greatest actors Lee Junho and Lee Se Young, who have exceptional acting skills and unique charms. We will greet viewers with a proper traditional romance sageuk (Korean historical drama) that is aimed precisely at the viewers’ hearts in the second half of 2021, so please look forward to it.”

2PM’s Junho Discusses A Memorable Fan Comment, His Perfectionist Personality, And More

2PM’s Junho Discusses A Memorable Fan Comment, His Perfectionist Personality, And More

Jul 26, 2021
by S. Cho

2PM’s Junho sat down for an interview with Esquire magazine to discuss his group, personality, and much more!


Junho was officially discharged from the military earlier this year, and he was asked what’s changed since his service. He answered, “It’s been over 100 days since I was discharged, but they’ve passed really busily. These are days I’ve missed, but without even having the time to get emotional, I immediately adjusted. It almost felt like I had never left.”


He continued, “Rather than a drastic change, I think my mindset has changed a bit. Compared to the past, I now want to approach everything in a more relaxed manner. Rather than a rushed, difficult, and stressed manner, I want to do everything steadily. I think those around me can see that mindset of mine.”


During his military service, 2PM’s track “My House” blew up, with Junho especially garnering lots of attention. He revealed that he had learned of this news in fall 2019, soon after he enlisted. Junho explained, “Since I had a longing for the stage, I frequently looked up videos of 2PM and myself, so I noticed the views of ‘My House Junho’ slowly going up. I just thought, ‘It’ll pass,’ like some kind of event.”


Junho also talked about the comments on this video, sharing, “It felt like a friendly battle of who could leave the funniest comment. I found that interesting. One memorable comment was ‘I realized it was spring only after the flower had fallen.’ It was sad, but I felt good.” The comment is referring to the fact that Junho had already enlisted in the military when the commenter belatedly discovered his charms.


To discuss Junho’s personality, the interviewer mentioned one of his lines from the film “Twenty” where his character said, “Do you know how hard it is to quit?”


Junho shared, “I haven’t thought a lot about wanting to quit, but if I was going to, I think I would quit so cleanly that I wouldn’t even have any memory of the situation. 0 or 100, I’m very extreme. I might not want to quit that much more because of this. If you quit, what you’ve done up until that point all becomes nothing.”


The interviewer responded that Junho seemed to be a perfectionist even in regards to quitting, and he responded, “In the past, this personality trait of mine was really tiring. Those around me must have been that much more exhausted too. In some moments, acting like that felt so obvious, because there is nothing wrong with being perfect. However, now I think that it’s okay not to be perfect. I realized that ultimately, I’m not doing everything on my own and there are people around me to help.”


During 2PM’s recent appearance on JTBC’s “Ask Us Anything,” Wooyoung commented that the resurgence of “My House” was all thanks to Junho. He shared, “Junho is careful every single day to not be an inconvenience to the members. He sacrifices himself for the team.”

Junho tried to explain this comment, sharing, “Since I’m simultaneously doing promotions as 2PM and as an actor, my schedule has to flow harmoniously. When a casting offer comes in, this creates a situation where I may have to give it up because of my 2PM promotions. I think he’s talking about that, but I think that’s a given. It’s the same as when I’m participating in a project as an actor and can’t do any other work. Even if I complete a variety of activities, that’s a problem I have to figure out. If I can’t get any sleep, I try not to make it noticeable that I’m tired and always want to have a good attitude.”


As Junho made his debut at a young age, he was asked whether he ever had a period of puberty. Junho replied with a laugh, “I obviously must have, right?”


He continued, “This is a different story, but both my parents worked, so I learned how precious they are at an early age. My father worked as a deck officer and I wouldn’t be able to see him for six months to one year at a time, so I missed him more. When I was in elementary school, I would visit my mom’s workplace and call her until she answered, crying and saying ‘I miss you.’ When I think about it now, I wonder how busy they must’ve been.”


Lastly, Junho shared what he does in order to protect and emphasize his personal uniqueness. He commented, “I like things that are light and natural. I want to become someone who is like a piece of drawing paper, that doesn’t stand out and isn’t provocative. Because I’m impatient and have a fiery personality, it’s hard to always be light, but I think this mindset helps to always ground me. Just like I showcased on ‘Home Alone‘ (‘I Live Alone’), hitting the wooden fish [wooden instrument used by Buddhist monks] is one thing I do to help. It helps me become comfortable and relaxed.”

I knew of 2pm as a group, though I don't know much about the members. except maybe Taecyeon and wooyoung who was in Dream High. And like you he was the first saw him in Memories of the Sword. I love Jeon Doyeon and Kim GoEun, and was frustrated with an idol-actor being cast in their movie together. but he really really really did surprise me.... and he continues to showcase solid acting..


I was a bit worried that I may have overcrowded the first page and will overcrowd it cause I still have a lot to add. But I am glad that you learned new things about Junho with the post I did... 

will be updating it more in the incoming days...
