Lee Je Hoon Describes His Affection For

Ahead of “Taxi Driver 2,” lead star Lee Je Hoon has expressed his love for the series!

Based on the webtoon of the same name, SBS’s “Taxi Driver” tells the story of a mysterious taxi service that delivers justice and revenge on behalf of victims who cannot get help from the law. Following the first season’s successful run in 2021, “Taxi Driver” is returning for a second season next month.

Lee Je Hoon plays the role of Kim Do Gi, a driver at the Rainbow Taxi agency who specializes in hunting down and punishing villains on behalf of their victims. The “taxi hero” is now back to continue getting back at criminals for victims placed in unjust situations.

Thinking back to when Season 1 aired, Lee Je Hoon shared, “I was able to feel the popularity of this drama, which I thought was pretty new and unconventional, when it aired each week and people would talk about ‘Taxi Driver.’ I was so happy to play a refreshing character who delivered exhilaration to viewers by solving cases dealing with real-life scenarios and I’m just thankful for all the love.”

Lee Je Hoon revealed that he did not at all expect a second season, but still wished that the drama’s story would continue on because it shed light on important incidents and conveyed fun and meaning at the same time. He added, “Right after the drama’s conclusion, there was talk about Season 2, so I’m deeply moved that we’re able to greet viewers again after a year and a half.”

The actor continued, “Since I had so much affection for ‘Taxi Driver,’ appearing in ‘Taxi Driver 2’ was such an obvious decision for me. If I was not offered [a role], I would’ve been upset. It’s such an honor to appear again in ‘Taxi Driver 2’ and I’m grateful that they sought me out again. I will work hard to showcase a better image than Season 1.”

Lee Je Hoon also expressed his gratitude for the “Rainbow Luck” team, sharing, “Our team group chat was made when Season 1 began and has carried on until now. Now, we really feel like a comfortable family. That’s why when the ‘Rainbow Luck’ team is altogether, it’s more fun, healing, and full of laughs than when I film alone. They are such reliable people I’m thankful for.”

Regarding key points for the new season, Lee Je Hoon shared, “The fiery revenge unique to ‘Taxi Driver’ is a given, but ‘Taxi Driver 2’ will have even more to see. The scale is much bigger, to the point where I was shocked during filming. Given the large scale, I’ve worked hard with many actors to properly capture a variety of episodes so your eyes will be entertained.”

Lee Je Hoon concluded, “Thanks to all your love, we are able to greet you again with ‘Taxi Driver 2.’ As you’ve waited such a long time, we will showcase a good project that does not disappoint, so please look forward to it lots. We will film diligently. I hope you join ‘Taxi Driver’ on its run.”

Season 2 of “Taxi Driver” will start airing on February 17 at 10 p.m. KST.
