About Lee Dong Gun

Lee Dong Gun is a South Korean actor who debuted as a singer in 1998. He released two albums, namely, "Time to Fly" (1998) and "Much More" (2000). Although he was given the much needed attention when he debuted, his popularity as a singer did not make quite a long lasting impression.

His acting career began when he guested in the Korean sitcom "Three Friends". Though his stint here was just short, it shed new lights for his career. His performance in the hit SBS Drama "Lovers in Paris" particularly paved way for his success as an actor.

He once said that his singing career was like a wheel; sometimes he's up and sometimes he's down, and if it wasn't for acting, he would have left the entertainment business. Although he began to focus on his acting career, he still took part in the original soundtracks of his drama "Stained Glass" and movies "My Boyfriend is Type B" and "Changing Partners."

In May 2008, he comes back to the music scene with an album produced by Sony Records for his Japanese fans. He also comes back with a new MBC drama alongside Kim Sun Ah entitled "When It's At Night".
