A man with a secret love of BDSM (Jung Ji-hoo) and the female colleague who discovers his secret by accident (Jung Ji-woo) drive the storyline in Netflix’s hotly anticipated Korean film Love and Leashes , due for release on February 11. Starring alongside Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun in the movie is Lee Jun-young – aka Jun – of U-Kiss and UNB. This is a big role for Jun, especially since he’s working alongside industry veteran Seohyun, who is six years his senior and has had leading roles in K-dramas such as Private Lives and Hello Dracula . So what do we know about him? How much did Park Shin-hye’s 4 wedding dresses cost? He actually joined U-Kiss six years after the team launched While he is most famous for being part of K-pop group U-Kiss, few realise that Jun was not part of the original line-up. The group, which originally debuted in 2008, started facing trouble when several members left in 2011 to 2013, citing health reasons, study commitments and other issues. To help fill the gap, Jun was recruited and debuted with the group in 2014, making him the maknae (youngest) of the group. He eventually explained on The Unit that the move was “in hopes of helping the members” and that “a lot of people said things like, ‘Why did you join U-Kiss when you could’ve had a fresh start?’” However, the idol insisted he joined because he wanted to do it. He won an idol reboot show to re-debut as a member of UNB To refresh his image, Jun joined a KBS survival show called The Unit: Idol Rebooting Project in 2017, in which K-pop idols that have already debuted compete to be part of a new idol group. Of 63 male contestants who took part in the programme, Jun won the highest number of votes, landing him a spot in new boy group UNB. The group debuted in 2018 with an album called “Boyhood”. However, as the group’s contract was only for a limited period, they disbanded less than a year later in 2019. End of the line? 6 K-pop group contracts ending in 2022 He’s won awards for his acting talent before Around the same time that he joined The Unit , Jun also made his acting debut on television series Avengers Social Club . Soon after, he was cast as the second male lead in the K-drama Goodbye to Goodbye , for which he won the award for best new actor at the 2018 MBC Drama Awards. He has since starred in other series such as Good Casting and Imitation , which helped him take home the Choice Actor award at last year’s Asia Artist Awards. He is a talented painter, and even painted the cover art for his album, “Gallery” Beyond being an accomplished singer and actor, Jun has also garnered attention for his impressive art skills. He is clearly a talented painter, even taking part in art exhibitions where several of his pieces sold. As a result, he is also fond of painting his own cover art: his painting entitled Co-existence served as the artwork for his single album, “Gallery” , and he also hand-painted the artwork for his 2020 single Amen , as seen in a Singles Korea YouTube video. Meet Single’s Inferno host Lee Da-hee – also a model, actress and singer Fans are going crazy for Love and Leashes before it’s even been released Even before Love and Leashes was released, fans were already buzzing about Jun and Seohyun’s performances. Teaser images and videos of the pair with leashes, collars and ropes wit the labels “dominant” and “submissive” have unsurprisingly gone viral on social media sites – not least because this will be the first time that both actors have been in a film with such, ahem, adult themes.
