Lee Jung Jae has really become a world-class actor.
Lee Jung Jae, who won the SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his performance in Squid Game, stood in front of the camera for the first issue of WWD Korea.
For this pictorial, the actor pulled off a variety of attire boasting Gucci’s unique design with his boyish smile. He was recently named Gucci’s ambassador.
In an interview afterward, Lee Jung Jae talked about the turning point in his acting career. “I was always clear of which direction I should be moving towards. So I didn’t really have a big turning point like u-turns, left or right turns,” he shared.
He continued, “The goal was to go in one direction, but instead of running in a straight line, I changed directions little by little. As a result, I got to accumulate small turning points and have been making transformations with little deviation from time to time.”
Meanwhile, Lee Jung Jae once again dreams of “deviation” at the peak of his career. Having garnered global attention with Squid Game, he is getting ready to make a new lead forward with the movie Hunt (literal title). He is the producer, director, and actor of the movie, which is slated for release later this year.
