Lee Joon Gi Reveals He Used to be a Thief
Though he’s a major hallyu star now, Lee Joon Gi has revealed he used to have a pilfering habit in his younger days.
Appearing recently on MBC’s Delicious TV, the actor/singer was asked by the show to reveal a food dish that he had a personal connection to for the show’s ‘Star’s Table’ corner.
Lee Joon Gi then revealed his dish to be jang jo rim, a soy-sauce marinated beef dish.
He explained his selection saying, “In my 20s, I moved to Seoul against my parent’s wishes in pursuit of my dreams to be an actor and came to live in a shared dormitory. Because I was so financially insecure then I used to steal and eat the jang jo rim found in the dormitory’s kitchen refrigerator.”
Lee Joon Gi then apologized to the owner of the jang jo rim back then saying, “I’m very sorry. Thanks to you I’ve made it this far.”
The same episode will also reveal the dishes that are special to Seo In Guk and ZE:a’s Kwang Hee when it airs on September 29.
