Now, "Scarlet Heart: Goryeo" adds up to the actor's portfolio that upholds his reputation as one of the leading sageuk actors.

"While it was really hard, I want to say 'Thank you' to the character," Joon Gi continued. "I hope he's happier in his next life, and that he stays happy with Hae Soo for a long, long time."

"Scarlet Heart: Goryeo" began its broadcast on Aug. 29 and aired its final episode on Nov. 1 (KST.) Actor Lee Joon Gi was cast as 4th Prince Wang So, the main male lead opposite actress Lee Ji-Eun, most commonly known as IU, who played the role of Go Ha-jin/ Hae Soo. Soompi reports that the SBS drama ended its run with a total of 11.3 percent total viewership, the drama's highest rating overall.
