First look at Hero’s heroes
Another of the year’s highly anticipated dramas is nearing its premiere date: Lee Junki‘s MBC drama Hero [히어로], which features the star as a hot-blooded reporter. On October 8, new stills were released of Lee Junki in action on the set, which follows a previously released still of second lead Eom Ki-joon (below), who plays a rival reporter.
In the new images, Lee’s reporter character arrives at his first day of work at a small-time newspaper. Lee Junki said, “The director, writer, and all the actors and crew are going into filming doing our best. Please look forward to the liveliness and passion of the drama, as well as a side of my personality I haven’t shown before in other projects, as I play a reporter with cheerfulness and enthusiasm.”
One source from the production team of the comic-infused drama said, “The director has worked with Lee Junki and the other actors for a long time in advance, so the set is very upbeat. It’s so full of laughs that it almost feels like the set of a comedy.”
Aside from Lee Junki and Eom Ki-joon, Hero stars Kim Min-jung, Jung Soo-young, and Ji Chang-wook and follows Heading to the Ground on Wednesdays and Thursdays. It airs its first episode on November 18.
