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.
