About Lee Dong Wook:
A staple name in the kdrama world, Lee Dong Wook is a South Korean actor, host, and model. Born on November 6, 1981, he was an avid reader of comics, but could not collect as freely as he wanted - this made him strive to work hard to be financially capable of collecting as many as he could. In 1999, he made his acting debut in a single-episode drama by MBC, after winning a modeling contest. The producer of that drama then cast him in two more shows, from which began to gain recognition.
Apart from being extremely charismatic on set and in private, one of Lee Dong Wook’s charms is that he never seems to age. Hardly a hint of facial augmentation, fans constantly swoon over his good looks and calm demeanor. Lee Dong Wook’s girlfriends and dating life has been made public countless times - but that has never tarnished his popularity.
