From a grim reaper to a life-saver-that is Korean actor Lee Dong Wook on television. But recently, he impresses netizens, even more, when he agreed to portray someone that is more challenging for the cover of a magazine.
The Goblin actor will be on the cover of the September issue of Elle Korea magazine. Apparently, Lee Dong Wook was asked to portray a concept of someone that is neither human nor a god and a man or woman for a magazine cover. As per Soompi's report, the actor felt awkward at first but quickly immersed into the "character." In the end, the staff on the set was impressed with what the actor did.
Lee also shared some secrets for his youthful skin. When asked about how he maintains his healthy and glowing skin, the actor humbly said it is just the result of good makeup. Then he reveals his simple yet effective skincare secret.
"[But] it is important to do a basic skincare routine for healthy skin. Just by nature of my job, I have no choice but to do makeup, but afterward, I always do a thorough cleansing and apply lip balm," Lee admitted.
Additionally, the Korean heartthrob revealed that he is actually a homebody. During his free time, he loves to stay home. Lee also revealed what makes him feel more masculine. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with his physique but more on taking care of the staff on any TV set or movie he is working on.
"The ability to shoulder that kind of responsibility and the ability to take care of the people around me is what makes me feel most masculine," Suzy's former beau confessed.
Meanwhile, netizens also shared their reactions on a couple of Lee's photos released by Elle Korea Magazine. All are impressed by the stunning visuals and how Lee looks glorious in the images. Check out the photos below.
