Various photos of actor Lee Do Hyun back when he was a member of a basketball team have garnered huge attention on the Internet.
Actor Lee Do Hyun has been attracting a lot of attention for his role as male lead Joo Yeo Jeong in the hit Netflix drama “The Glory”. Here, the actor delivered an outstanding and complex performance, and his visuals as a genius doctor earned a lot of praise.
However, prior to “The Glory”, Lee Do Hyun’s first successful lead role was in the K-drama “18 Again”, where the actor transformed into Hong Dae Young, a 37-year-old man who is reverted into his 18-year-old body and lived under a new name, Go Woo Young.
In “18 Again”, Lee Do Hyun showed off an eye-catching visual as a star basketball player. At the same time, the actor also impressed the audience with his basketball skills.
As it turns out, Lee Do Hyun had actually played basketball in school, and only quitted the sport because his father, a former baseball player, was against it.
“I was a point guard. If my father hadn’t been against it, I think I would have continued in sports”, the actor admitted in a video published by Netflix Korea back in 2021.
