Lee Jong Suk facts:
– He was born in Yongin, but began to live on his own in Seoul since high school after entering a performing arts school.
– He has a younger brother (2 years younger than him) and a younger sister (4 years younger than him).
– Lee Jong Suk was the youngest male model of the Seoul Collection program.
– Lee Jong Suk was one of the 2220 students out of 21268 who passed the entrance examination in Honkuk University.
– He is very shy that he couldn’t even raise his hands to do a presentation in his school days.
– Lee Jong Suk: “My father was strict only towards me. I think he was displeased with me because I am the eldest and I am quiet and timid compared to my siblings. It’s not as bad as it was before but I still can’t look over to the main room when my father is there because he is scary.”
– His role model is Rain. After watching him in “Full House”, Rain became his role model and idol.
– He trained as an idol group member for 3 months and had signed with an agency for debut but he quit after the agency broke their promise to debut him as an actor.
– He knows taekwondo and how to play the piano: “I learned how to play the piano, do taekwondo, draw and play baduk [Korean chess]. I somewhat liked to play the piano but I was forced to take taekwondo lessons. I once got in a car accident on the way to taekwondo and I tore my cruciate ligament. I was glad thinking that I didn’t have to go to taekwondo anymore but as soon as I was released from the hospital my father told me to go back. “
– His current agency is YG Entertainment.
– Lee Jong Suk is formerly a trainee of SM Entertainment.
– Lee Jong Suk has been good friends with SNSD‘s Yoona and Hyoyeon since pre-debut.
– He is friends with his co-stars (and former models) Kim Woobin and Young Kwang.
– He gets embarrassed and intimidated whenever he’s in the spotlight (center of attraction). It’s ok when there are under eight people looking at him, but when there are more people, he’ll get nervous.
– Compared to a chillin’ at a club, he prefers to hang out at a coffee shop, having a good chat with his friends.
– He is a bad drinker (he can’t handle alcohol).
– He likes holding hands with the persons he’s comfortable with: “It’s just natural for me to touch people, so I like holding the hand of the person I’m talking to, whether it’s a guy or a girl,” he said. “If I’m with someone I’m comfortable with, I hug that person or touch them. Sometimes people misunderstand. I’ve come to realize there are people who don’t like such skinship.”
– Initially he planned to enlist in 2018, but decided to delay his enlistment due to his busy schedule.
– He got an offer to act alongside Lee Na Young, the drama will air in 2019.
Lee Jong Suk’s ideal type: “If I had to pick among celebrities, Lee Na Young is the closest to my ideal woman. I chose her previously and she still is my ideal type.” When asked why, he stated, “I really like Lee Na Young’s distinctive talking style. It’s very charming.”
