FT Island’s Lee Hongki is making a comeback as an actor after a period of 5 years.
Filming for SBS new mini series “You’re Beautiful” started recently. Though many people already know him as the main vocal of FT Island, few knew that he actually debuted as a child actor. He was casted in MBC’s “Freezing Point” in 2004. Thereafter, he continued his studies and also passed the audition which led him to being part of the band, FT Island.
In the SBS Wed-Thu drama, “You’re Beautiful“, which is stated to air in October, Lee Hongki will play the role of Jeremy, drummer of the band. The filming started on 2nd September at Incheon International Airport, a scene where he met the other members.
After completing his filming that day, he expressed that, “It’s the first time I’m filming for a drama ever since my middle school days. I’m really enjoying it. When I was younger, it was amazing and at the same time, enjoyable when I was at the filming location. Now, even if I’m tired, I feel good when I’m filming.”
He also said that, “Even though our members are all busy with their individual activities, many people are giving us lots of support. And with that, from now on, I will show a better image of myself as an actor.”
The new SBS Wed-Thu drama “You’re Beautiful” talks about the growth of a teenage band and the love between the members. Besides Lee Hongki, the cast includes Jang Geunsuk, Park Shinhye, Jung Yonghwa and others.
