CNBLUE, Lee Jung Shin, Unexpected You

CNBLUE’s Lee Jung Shin has stepped up to being the next well-rounded star to emerge from the band. With his recent cameo in “Unexpected You,” his plans to take on acting as a follow up to his modeling activities met with huge success.

CNBLUE Lee Jung Shin’s Successful Transformation from Idol to Actor

Lee Jung Shin, at 187cm tall, is known for his long-limbed figure, a characteristic which brought in many modeling offers since his debut with the band in 2010. He has been featured in several magazine publications including his recent solo spreads in Singles and Cosmopolitan Korea.

His leap forward into acting came with his recent cameo in the drama “Unexpected You,” alongside the ‘nation’s little brother’ and fellow band member, Kang Min Hyuk, who plays the role of Cha Se Kwang, which aired on July 15, has further demonstrated his eagerness to perform on the small screen.

“Making my first TV appearance in the national drama, ‘Unexpected You’ really made me happy and nervous at the same time. It’s also meaningful because I got to film it with Minhyukie (Kang Min Hyuk), who has received a lot of love from the drama,” stated Lee regarding his work on the role.

Lee Jung Shin played Oh Yeon Suh’s‘ new boyfriend and received many compliments for his acting abilities despite his novice status. The online community was busy posting compliments to the new actor soon after his long awaited TV appearance. Fans have also been praising his efforts for the hard work he put into practicing his lines and learning about his character for his first acting experience.

Lee’s cameo appearance seems to have made an impact on the show’s ratings; episode 42 was the first episode to achieve an over 40% rating since the show first aired. The drama “Unexpected You” has broken their ratings record by reaching 41.9% ratings. When KBS2 TV aired “Unexpected You” on July 15, it went up 3.7% from last week’s 38.2%, reaching 41.9%.

With Lee Jung Shin now being the last band member to successfully get bitten by the acting bug, we can now begin to look forward to more silver screen appearances from him and band CNBLUE in the future.
