When i wanted to do a profile of Coffee Prince‘s Choi Han Seong – actor Lee Seon Gyun, i couldn’t find any information on him in English! He isn’t even on Wikipedia. Anyway, this is probably one of the few profiles of him in English, thanks to K-popped!‘s reader and friend Joe Gimm.
This low-keyed actor has a rich deep voice that you would notice immediately. Lee Seon Gyun is currently in the drama My Sweet Seoul (달콤한 나의 도시). From an unknown he shot to fame in his role in the 2007 MBC hit drama Coffee Prince in which he plays a patient and sensitive music director.
33 year-old Lee Seon Gyun made his debut in 2001 via a musical ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show‘. He also started to act minor roles in films from that year onwards. His most memorable TV appearance was ‘Loveholic:러브홀릭‘ in 2005.
It may be that producers have taken note of that deep rich baritone of his and resulted in him singing the title song of his current drama My Sweet Seoul.
Let’s get to know this very private actor.
