Actor Lee Joon Hyuk appeared as a guest on tvN’s entertainment program “You Quiz on the Block”, which aired on June 21st.
Regarding the reason he started acting, Lee Joon Hyuk said, “I loved movies so much when I was a child. When I was attending an acting academy, I was introduced to the company.”
When Yoo Jae Suk asked “I heard you were frustrated while learning acting“, Lee Joon Hyuk replied, “I was scolded a lot for 2 years by my acting teacher. I went home crying every day.”
He explained, “I got worked up, ‘I have to receive praise next week.’ At that time, actors often did well at acting academies. Private classes were taken by famous people, and I took group classes. There were people who took private classes early because they were overflowing with passion. When I looked back, I had a hard time under the pressure of ‘I have to do really well here’ since there were seniors Won Bin and Kang Dong Won.”
