#Quote
1"I will say that I've "experienced Resident Evil". I had a small role, so it's a stretch to say that I filmed together with Milla Jovovich. It was a special appearance at the level of a cameo. Although I'm a fan of the Resident Evil series, but in reality, I decided to take on this challenge because I wanted to learn about the system in Hollywood. Because it is a place that I really want to go someday. (upon being asked about filming "Resident Evil" with Milla Jovavich in Hollywood)
2I have a clear understanding that being an actor is a job that faces the public. I think the responsibility and duty that such a person needs to have is of primary importance for an actor.
3I was always such a greedy person; I had a greed of having to show a variety of things. Because I like physical action, I mostly played characters that need to possess complex emotions even when there are many action scenes...I think of action as one of my specialties and strengths. But for how long will I be able to use my body like that? A time will come when I won't be able to do so even if I wanted to. I want to work hard and do more action when I'm still able use my body well.
4After my performance in The King and the Clown, I found myself at the forefront of this 'pretty boy' trend, whether or not that was my intention. Suddenly, people were interested in me, and there was all this praise and criticism all at the same time. Everything was just so overwhelming. I felt like I was floating on air.
5In this life, I can't think of any other choices but this one....for Lee Joon Gi in this life, acting is the only dream and goal I have....Thinking "what would I be if not an actor?" The answer would be to not exist.
6I've always been the kind who doesn't enjoy my personal life that much. I can't enjoy it even if I'm given more time. Because I have a strong sense of responsibility or duty towards work, I end up being so absorbed with work, such that I don't know how to have fun once I have time. I don't know how to invest time for myself.
7I don't want to be a star who shines and then disappears. I want to be a true actor who marks his place among the crowd.
