Lee Jae Wook is finally taking on the leading man role in the new K-drama Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol. The actor debuted through Memories of the Alhambra and continued to earn more major roles in Search WWW and Extraordinary You. A rising star at 22, he’s now transforming into the seemingly cold but warm Sunwoo Jun for the KBS series.
As per Netflix, the upcoming romantic drama “follows a lovable pianist named Gu Ra Ra (Go A Ra), whose life hits rock bottom when her family's finances collapse. Gu Ra Ra meets the mysterious Sunwoo Jun (Lee Jae Wook), a gruff guy who is happily living a carefree lifestyle as a freelancer. With laughter, tears, and love, they come to mean something special to each other.”
Jae Wook’s character Jun is a free-spirited soul who works at a variety of part-time jobs. Although he’s aloof and tends to maintain his distance, there’s a special charm to him that draws other people closer to him. He lives without any hopes or dreams, until his life is profoundly changed when he meets the energetic pianist Gu Ra Ra.
The actor talked about his character’s duality when it comes to appearing rough but actually paying attention to detail. He said, “He’s charming because he has contrasting charms. He’s someone I was curious about after hearing about the drama. The more we film, I feel that he’s a tender-hearted character. He doesn’t express his feelings, so it makes people curious.”
Jae Wook also talked about his honest thoughts on the drama, saying, “I’m nervous, and I feel a lot of pressure. I wish to express Jun’s diverse charming sides convincingly and well. I have continuously portrayed a lot of different characters in the past, and I will do my best to leave a lasting impression on viewers this time as well.”
Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol premieres on August 26, exclusively on Netflix.
