Lee Je Hoon is Doing Three Things at the Same Time
Lee Je Hoon is probably thinking that he could really use a big group of clones right about now.
On the afternoon of March 13, he met with the press in the press preview for the film Architecture 101. The VIP preview for the film took place in the same evening, which meant Lee Je Hoon had to stay in the theater to promote the film all day.
On the next day, March 14, he met with the press again in a press conference for something different: the SBS drama Fashion King.
Lee Je Hoon started getting busy with the premiere of the film The Front Line in July 2011. He rose fast as a new star in Chungmuro after showing off his eye-catching acting in the film, and offers from films and dramas continued to flow in. Since The Front Line, he’s filmed two films and is also shooting a drama.
From October 2011 to January 2012, Lee Je Hoon filmed Architecture 101. At the same time, from November 2011 to February 18, 2012, he acted for the film Fortune-Tellers.
This astonishing feat of shooting two films at the same time was made possible because although he is the lead of Architecture 101, the film alternates between the past and the present, and so he only appears in half of the film. He dropped in to film for Fortune-Tellers while Architecture 101 was filming the parts he wouldn’t be appearing in.
As soon as shooting for Fortune-Tellers wrapped up, Lee Je Hoon started shooting the drama Fashion King. In February, he even flew to New York for the drama. He continued to participate in promotional activities for Architecture 101 at the same time, and as soon as Fashion King is over, he’ll have to start promoting for Fortune-Tellers. Talk about killer schedules.
A rep from Lee Je Hoon’s agency Saram Entertainment said, “Lee Je Hoon is a rookie that has managed to garner much attention since last year. We’re thankful that so many pieces are sending in their love calls. We thank you for thinking well of him.”
“Because Lee Je Hoon is so busy with his schedule shooting the drama, we’re not able to set up a proper schedule to promote the film. Architecture 101 is the first film in which Lee Je Hoon appears as the lead, so of course, he needs to meet many people for interviews. It’ll be hard because of his schedule, but we’ll try to meet as many audiences as possible,” the rep added.
Fashion King will be airing its first episode on March 19. Architecture 101 will premiere on March 22.
