Jun is originally a rapper but over the years, he's improved his vocals and have been singing more especially in the dramas he's in. Here's his most recent single (came out a year ago).


This was his first single as a solo artist.

Jun has a really cute relationship with his manager, who's been with him for 6 or 7 years, ever since his debut with U-Kiss. Jun's manager is a bit pretentious but in the most innocent way. He just want Jun to do well and be happy. He goes out of his way for Jun and I think he's truly Jun's no. 1 supporter. 


Jun mentioned in an interview that he was not interested in Class of Lies but his manager thought it would be good for him to star in it. Jun decided to accept the role and it is one of his most iconic roles, he played a psychopath. 


Here are some videos of them on the show, The Manager.

I normally not fond of light coloured hair, but Jun can pulled this style so well. He resemble prince from manga. For someone who start as rapper, he really can hit high notes so well. 




@TofuHis manager doing a good job. I think he's very stood out as pyschopath in Class of Lies. It was almost like Park Bo Gum iconic role that make him known to the world. He definitely should take more various roles in future. Eventhough he's doing a good job in idol dramas recently, I think idol dramas sadly have very limited exposure and only few exclusive fans who will like it. I have to be honest, I was not excited to try Imitation or Let Me Be Your Knight. 


Call @Alice Wonderlandto admire Jun together.

I love his chemistry with Song Ha Yoon on PDDH. This noona is 10 years his senior

Our Joonie is a certified noona and ahjumma killer. I finished watching Avengers Club and actually he has more chemistry with Lee Yo Won, his stepmom there than the female student he hook up with on the drama. 


Sharing this video of Paralympic 2018 preparation, he looks so natural without much make up. See how pretty his hands are !

@SilverMoonTea, this is from back in May! And, meant to be done in the month of June. Not sure if you're asking for a translation? However, it starts:


Day 1 The moment you became aware of Lee Jun Young.


No time right now, but could translate the other days for you later in the weekend.

Thanks so much, no rush at all. When have time let's do the challenge together daily 😂


D1 - The moment I'm aware of LJY is from Class of Lies. I thought who is this shiny and mysterious student with dark hair 😍 I was shocked though with his psychopath personality :pandagrim:

I love that our first drama with Jun are all different, because I'm pretty sure @stroppyse had a different one too. 


True. Actually, the first time that I saw Jun was in Avengers Social Club, probably because I don't watch that many youth dramas anyway, plus tend to stay away from anything hinting of idols.


As anyone who has heard me blather, I really love ASC. I think it's well plotted, well acted, and well directed. It's also one of the few dramas where I worked on a subtitle team for it because I liked the cast and it seemed to be a drama which was unlikely to get good, timely subs, mostly because it was about women with very little romance at all. I think the subs we worked on are still out there being used for this drama?


Anyway, I was totally impressed by the actor playing the stepson and didn't realize he was an idol until the drama was almost over. By then it was too late. I was hooked by his talent. :wow:

@stroppyseYes the subtitle is by Avengers unnie dongsaeng team right I think ? @LaLatold me you guys were worked together on it. Just want to say thanks, I just finished that drama this week. It's quite addictive and Jun is doing good job there. Eventhought at that time he was new, but he can hold his act well with more veteran actresses.
