It is rumored that many broadcast officials, who were disappointed that he enlisted during his peak of popularity, have already started a war to cast the actor in secret.

With close to three months left in his mandatory service, plenty of scripts and synopses are already being sent to Lee Je Hoon’s agency. Many prominent directors in particular, are lining up to try and film a blockbuster drama with the casting of Lee Je Hoon.

One broadcast official stated about the industry’s immense interest in the actor, “It is at the point where many writers and producers have created a script especially with Lee Je Hoon in mind. It is common to see casting directors sharing and discussing Lee Je Hoon’s condition these days.”
