This photo shoot shows Lee Jong Suk attending the Hugo Boss flagship store opening in Hong Kong as the representative Korean celebrity. As it was a very grand event, Lee Jong Suk got to meet and chat with many big world stars such as Chow Yun Fat.

Lee Jong Suk also spoke about his newest role in the SBS drama “Doctor Stranger” and how he was named as one of the Hallyu kings in China.

In “Doctor Stranger,” Lee Jong Suk plays the role of the genius doctor Park Hoon. “Park Hoon needs to make money to save his first love (Jin Se Yeon) from North Korea and in order to do so, he has to practice medicine. But for those who are poor and weak, Park Hoon performs surgery for as little as 50 cents,” he explained.

The young actor also talked about being picked as one of the Hallyu stars. “The original kings of Hong Kong are Yoo Duk Hwa, Aaron Kwok, Leon Lai and Jacky Cheung. But I think the title of Hallyu King is just used as a marketing term. It doesn’t feel legitimate yet. The title may sound grand but I don’t think I have my own special weapon yet. I think the only way is to work hard on my projects and work hard on my acting,” he cautiously said.

This photo shoot can be found in the 125th issue of High Cut.

Soompiers, do you think Lee Jong Suk is fit for the title of Hallyu King?
