Lee Junki as a nightclub waiter in Hero
Lee Junki may be playing a reporter in the new MBC drama Hero, but in these stills, he’s playing the part of a nightclub waiter. (The articles don’t specify why, but I suspect he is undercover.)
A source from the production said, “Lee Junki is so slick as he acts the role that the staff has joked back and forth with him about whether he used to work at a nightclub. It should be entertaining watching him show various sides to the Do-hyuk character, the ‘passionate reporter,’ as he transforms into a fun, oddball waiter.”
Another source said, “The staff and actors are all working hard at all hours of the night. We anticipate that the passionate work of the Hero team will heat up the drama as well. We hope that the viewers will look forward to watching.”
Hero, which also stars Kim Min-jung and Eom Ki-joon, will broadcast a week earlier than originally scheduled. Due to the cutting of Heading to the Ground, it premieres on November 11.
