Lee Dong-wook to launch his own talk show on SBS

On November 3, actor Lee Dong-wook‘s agency King Kong by Starship announced that he would be launching his own talk show on SBS, which is tentatively titled Lee Dong-wook Wants To Talk.

Lee Dong-wook, who was last seen playing an antagonistic role in the OCN thriller Strangers From Hell, initially broke the news to fans at his 20th-anniversary fan meeting on November 2. He shared that he has wanted to try being a talk show host for a long time and asked for support as his fans cheered enthusiastically.

Since his acting debut 20 years ago, Lee Dong-wook has striven to do as many different projects as possible. From being a model, a survival show judge, an MC, and an actor, he hasn’t shied away from experimenting. Just in the last couple of years alone, he has done shows like Goblin, Life, Touch Your Heart, and Strangers from Hell, spanning genres across fantasy, medical drama, romance, and thriller. The upcoming talk show is expected to add another feather to his cap.

Lee Dong-wook Wants To Talk will premiere on December 4 at 10 p.m. Korean Standard Time.

Indoor Enthusiast (Esha) is a staff writer at Kdramapal. She is responsible for bringing all the latest happenings in Kdramaland, as well as features and recaps of currently airing dramas, to the readers of the site. As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
