FOR THOSE of you who have been watching the feel good drama Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, you may have been wondering who is that gentleman opposite Go Ara who seemed to have captured your admiration and attention.
Well, fortunately for you, this article was made to cover all things Lee Jae-Wook, the 22 year old stunner who plays the character of Sun woo Joon, the mysterious but good hearted part time worker who seemed to be smitten by Goo Ra-ra’s charm.
Here are all the things you need to know, and perhaps more, regarding the new leading man of your (and our) dreams, Lee Jae-Wook.
Lee Jae-Wook was born on May 10, 1998 in Seoul, South Korea. He is attending Chung-Ang University, and is majoring on Theatre Studies. His agency, VAST Entertainment, is actually part-property of the megastar Hyun Bin.
He made his television debut in the Korean high rating drama series “Memories of the Alhambra” which stars Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye. He played the role of a hacker-programmer in the 2018 Netflix drama.
Following his supporting role, he then starred in “Search: WWW” in 2019 as one of the main cast, playing the character of Seol Ji-hwan. In the same year, he appeared as one of the main leads in the drama “Extraordinary You”. Playing the character of Baek Kyung, one of the most good-looking and powerful boys in their school and the fiancé of Dan Oh, played by Kim Hye-yoon.
In 2020, he appeared briefly in the drama “When the Weather Is Fine” starring Seo Kang-joon and Park Min-young. He acted as Eun-Seob’s (played by Seo Kang-joon) high school friend. He was then cast as the lead role in Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol in May 2020.
So far, the newbie Lee Jae Wook appeared only in a single film – The Battle of Jangsari as Lee Gae-tae. The film, which was released in 2019 was directed by Kwak Kyung-taek and Kim Tae-hoon and stars Kim Myung-min, Megan Fox and Choi Min-ho.
In his free time, when he is not filming or doing pictorials, Jae-Wook spends his time watching films. He also enjoys writing things and thoughts by hand, in which he especially likes drawing maps.
Of all the roles that he played so far, he is attached to Baek Kyung – the rude and arrogant student and fiancé of the lead female character in the drama “Extraordinary You”. He explains that in real life, he is the opposite of Baek Kyung’s personality. He then continued to describe himself as someone who has a positive and vibrant character.
This was proven by some of the behind the scenes clip from filming his drama “Extraordinary You”. You can see his playful and carefree nature as he interacts with the other actors, all of which were closer to his age.
Although his acting repertoire is still limited, given he is still fairly new in the acting world, his range of acting has already been noticed by fans. He can play any character well – from the slightly crazy and rough hacker-programmer in the series “Memories of Alhambra” to the lovable and swoon-worthy gentleman in the series “Search:WWW”, his acting skills are top notch!
Most importantly, despite his star rising star status, he loves wearing sweat pants and hoodies! Although he practically can pull of any outfit – he is a model, he prefers to be laid back and relax. Also, he loves take-out food. What a perfect guy!
Although the series “Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol” is still currently airing, I could not help but get excited with the progression of the series. Not only that Go Ara is personally one of my favorites, I could not wait to see more of Lee Jae-Wook!
