[Interview] Lee Joon Says ZE:As Im Si Wan, Kwang Hee and CN Blues Jung Yong Hwa Cheer Each Other On Often
--> Lee Joon showed his support for his BFF ZE:A′s Kwang Hee.
On May 28, Lee Joon participated in a interview with Newsen in Samcheong-dong, talking about how he cheered on Kwanghee becoming the sixth member of MBC′s Infinity Challenge.
On this day, Lee Joon shared that he received a lot of support and had many conversations about acting in I Heard It Through the Grapevine with his close friends Im Si Wan, CN Blue′s Jung Yong Hwa and Kwang Hee.
"I′ve written in the comments section of my friends′ articles. When Kwang Hee was going into the Sixth Man project for Infinity Challenge, I posted a word of encouragement," shared Lee Joon. "It was kind of fun leaving a comment."
"Kwang Hee really worried a lot when he appeared on Infinity Challenge. He called me one day and said, ′I really want to do Infinity Challenge, but do you think I′ll do well?′ I didn′t know if he would get selected, but because he was worrying so much, I told him, ′I think you′ll get picked. If you do, you′ll be winning over Si Wan. You′ll do well.′ Then he really got picked. I was really proud as a friend."
"I think Kwang Hee is doing better than I thought he would. When he goes on other variety programs, he tends to be a bit timid, but I believe he′s putting his life on the line for Infinity Challenge. You can tell just by his expressions. He′s working hard thinking he′ll die if it′s not Infinity Challenge. I want to support him."
"Kwang Hee, Si Wan and Yong Hwa really support each other a lot. When something happens, we call each other up. When Kwang Hee got picked for Infinity Challenge, we really congratulated him."
Having debuted in 2009 with MBLAQ, Lee Joon gained acting experience through Iris 2, Gapdong, Rough Play and more. After leaving MBLAQ, he was cast in SBS′ I Heard It Through the Grapevine, where he is receiving praise for portraying Han In Sang.
