On February 25, Lee gave an interview to TV Report and said, “I don’t have a girlfriend now.” He also said the rumors about his romance with actress Jung So Min is not true.
Regarding his ideal type, Lee said, “I like a girl who can encourage me and listen to my concerns.”
Saying he got a good friend, Kim Woo Bin, while he was shooting KBS 2TV’s drama series School 2013, Lee said, “He made me improve. I don’t think Nam Soon could be that pathetic if there weren’t Heung Soo. Kim Woo Bin always knew what he was doing, so I cried a lot of times even though I didn’t have to.”
He also said, “I liked my character Nam Soon and thought acting was fun. I recently met the cast of School 2013 when I went to see Kim Chang Hwan. We’re very close.”
Lee is currently working of a new film, The Face Reader (directed by Han Jae Rim).
