Before Lee Junho became the award-winning actor that he is now, he debuted as part of the legendary second-generation K-pop group 2PM under JYP Entertainment. He's a certified triple threat: He can sing, dance, and act! And well, we can't deny that he's got the good looks to match his overflowing talent. Through the years, we've seen Junho act in both K-dramas and K-movies, but we have a soft spot for his work on the small screen (more episodes = more chances to bask in his handsomeness). Read on to check out his K-dramas:

Early projects

1. Memory (2016)

Who else is in it: Lee Sung Min, Kim Ji Soo, Park Jin Hee

This melodrama tells the story of Park Tae Suk (Sung Min), a brilliant, cutthroat lawyer who discovers he has Alzheimer's disease.

2. Good Manager (2017)

Who else is in it: Namgoong Min, Nam Sang Mi, Jung Hye Sung

For his next role, Junho takes on another workplace drama, this time with veteran actor Namgoong Min at the helm. Min plays Kim Sung Ryong, an accountant with a history of working for the mob. Despite his seemingly unsavory background, he gets hired as TQ Group's accounting department chief. He becomes an unlikely hero in the workplace as he finds himself accidentally fighting for employeesrights. Junho plays antagonist Seo Yul, TQ's finance director, surprising everyone by holding his own against Min’s amazing acting. We lived for Seo Yul's food scenes in the drama—and boy, there were a lot of them! Junho ended up winning an Excellence Award for Acting at the KBS Drama Awards for his role.
