Korean actor Lee Joon Hyuk is so good at immersing himself in diverse characters that he is never typecast. As it turns out, he not only romanced us as a handsome doctor in love in A Poem A Day, he will next join the cast of sci-fi mystery Are You Human Too? But wait, it's actually the other way around. What happened?

Although the talented actor debuted in 2006, most of us in the international fan community probably noticed Lee Joon Hyuk for the first time in Lee Min Ho's memorable action thriller City Hunter, where he played a righteous prosecutor. He then followed up as a man who betrayed his friend in Man of Equator.

After his military service from 2012 to 2014, he resurrected his acting career by joining My Spring Days and Bluebird's House.

2017 proved to be fruitful for the hard-working actor.

He played the lead in The Naked Fireman, a scheming prosecutor in the award-winning Stranger (Secret Forest), and an assistant to an AI robot that impersonated a tycoon heir in Are You Human Too?. He then played a handsome doctor who fell in love in A Poem A Day this year.

It's a nice arc for Lee Joon Hyuk's resurgence as a leading man.

Many fans fell for A Poem A Day's Dr. Ye Jae Wook (Lee Joon Hyuk) so much that we want him in more romantic roles. But I wouldn't be surprised that the versatile actor will continue to appear in just as many bad-guy as good-guy roles.

Having hated him in Stranger and then loved him in A Poem A Day, I'm convinced that Lee Joon Hyuk is not only a skilled actor but also good at choosing the best projects.

Did you catch that he was in Are You Human Too? before A Poem A Day?

Yes, it turned out that Are You Human Too was a pre-produced project which completed in November 2017. It is going to be released on June 4 this year.
