Melodious Lee Dong Wook
Updated: Oct 26, 2020
Today we have a second Lee Dong Wook.
Lee Dong Wook has been acting for 20 years. He landed his first role the same year, 1999, he was recognized as the top model in Korea. He hit stardom with his 2005 role in My Girl and has played many memorable roles since including more recent ones as: a grim reaper in love, an ER doctor, and a workaholic lawyer who never dated before.
He was also MC for Strong Heart and Produce X 101 until getting his own talk show, Because I Want To Talk. His first guest was long time friend and army buddy, Gong Yoo, who had made a promise that, should Lee Dong Wook ever start a talk show, he would be on it. (He stated he never actually believed he would have to keep that promise). On episode 12 of his talk show he sang a duet with the “Queen of Kpop”, BoA, which we chose for song of the day. He also sang the OST for his show Bubblegum which we will share as well.
The duet from Because I Want To Talk is a remake of an OST from the America movie La La Land called City of Stars.
