Ah, yes. Lee Jong Suk. Most of us already know who he is but just in case you don’t, Lee Jong Suk (이종석) is a South Korean actor and model. He debuted in 2005 as a runway model, and began his acting career in the 2009 short film, “Sympathy”.
He is best known for his leading roles in “School 2013” (2012), “I Can Hear Your Voice” (2013), “Doctor Stranger” (2014) and also, for his unforgettable role as Choi Dal Po in “Pinocchio” (2014).
The 25-year-old may be young and still fairly new to the entertainment industry, but already, Lee Jong Suk has become so popular in China that he is called one of the “Fantastic Four of Hallyu”. The other 3 actors are Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho, and Kim Woo Bin.
He recently received a “love call” from wax museum Madame Tussauds and survived 7 hours of body measurement session by the British wax museum consultants and Hong Kong Madame Tussauds representatives.
A Hong Kong Madame Tussauds representative revealed:
Lee Jong Suk is a very popular actor throughout Southeast Asia especially in China and Japan. He is a talented actor and possesses great star power. He’s worth it. Everyone is greatly anticipating Lee Jong Suk’s wax doll exhibit early next year.
His wax figure will go on display at the museum in the first half of next year, along with world-renowned figures, such as US President Barack Obama, actresses Angelina Jolie and Audrey Hepburn, and Hong Kong actor Andy Lau.
Lee Jong Suk is the 4th Korean wax figure to be installed at the museum. He will join the ranks of Korean stars like Bae Yong Joon, Lee Min Ho, and Kim Soo Hyun whose wax dolls are already being exhibited there.
