MBLAQ’s Lee Joon is set to join the KBS daily sitcom, “I Need an Angel.”
In the sitcom, Lee Joon will play a clever character who is an aspiring actor. The production team hinted that they tried to play up Lee Joon’s real true self as his character is said to have the same name and personality.
In the show, he is neat in everything he does but still likes unique things. Throughout the sitcom, Lee Joon will have a lot of scenes with Hwang Woo Seul Hye, who plays the female role that his character has a crush on. His character is the only one who believes Chae Hwa, who is played by Hwang Woo Seul Hye, is an angel. With Lee Joon’s casting, the production team is hoping that it will boost the show’s ratings.
“I Need an Angel” is garnering a lot of laughter for the silly characters played by Cha In Pyo, Shim Hye Jin, and Hwang Woo Seul Hye. However, by comparison, there really aren’t any young stars in the show who are in the spotlight. The production crew knows that Lee Joon is very popular on variety shows for his antics and believes that he is charming as an actor also. They wanted to bring life and energy to the show through him.
On April 2, Lee Joon completed his first filming without any trouble. It is being said that he overcame any awkwardness or nervousness with his lively attitude. Lee Joon will start appearing on the show as early as next week. A person from the broadcasting network said,” With a new character and MBC “High Kick 3: Counterattack of the Short Legs” ending, I will wait and see if there’s a rise in the ratings.”
Lee Joon started his acting career in 2009 with the movie, “Ninja Assassin,” where he played the younger role of Rain’s character. In 2010, he made his TV debut with the KBS2 drama, “Jungle Fish 2.” Also recently, he was on MBC “Golden Fishery – Radio Star,” where he talked with so much ease that he is being called a “Variety Show Idol.”
