Though for some fortune telling may seem far-fetched, for Lee Jong Seok it ran home.

At the press conference for the film The Face Reader held on August 12, the actor said when asked whether he believes faces can be read, "My mother once went to have my fortune told four years ago."

He said, "My mother said she visited a fortune teller when I was 21 years old, and the fortune teller had said that I′ll be really successful when I′m 25 years old."

Lee Jong Seok, who recently rose to top star status through KBS2′s School 2013 and SBS′ I Hear Your Voice, is currently 25 years old in Korean age.

For the film he will be Jin Hyung, the son of Joseon′s genius face reader Nae Kyung (Song Kang Ho). He limps and is frail because he was underfed when he was a child, but he studies hard and makes it into the palace.

He will be donning hanbok and long hair, about which Lee Jong Seok joked, "I learned that your hair can really affect how you look."

The Face Reader is about how Nae Kyung tries to change the future of Joseon with his abilities. It will premiere in September.
