November 1st  is the completion of Philip’s 6th year as an actor. As a way to celebrate that I asked for her best Phil scenes; combining them with mine I came up with the following list of best 6 Philip Lee moments in terms of acting, cuteness, and swoon worthiness. I know it’s hard to find a scene with cute Phil since he always depicts serious characters but bear with me. Here it goes. ♥_♥

  • Philip’s First Scene in Legend (with the mask OFF)
The very first time any fan saw his face was in episode16 from Legend drama. It didn’t just mark Phill’s debut as a handsome actor with smart brains encased in that hot body of his. It’s more than that actually. Let me convey it in another fan’s words (ayamin101 from utube) 4years ago.
     Sweet mother of pearl. No joke, but in the drama when he finally pealed off all his demon skin, I literally screamed in surprise. WHAT A GORGEOUS FACE. THOSE LIPS! THAT JAW.
      And he was SO cute in drama itself, like a stalking, silent shadow. His one-sided love for Sujini was freaking adorable. I loved how he had this sort of sixth-sense about her, haha.
      Those other pictures…WOW. Just…wow. <3!
That’s the thing. His performance there was/is the very first evidence of Philip’s graceful acting. It got him nominated for MBC’s Best Newcomer Award on 2007.

INFO: Story of a Man / Guys Talk / The Slingshot

I have not seen this drama, but I have included it in my list of what-to-watch soon as I get my downtime from work, studying and deadlines 😉 Here are some info, though.

Story Of A Man
(The Slingshot)

KBS2 – 20 episodes

Who will be the final victor?

Money begets tragedy
Kim Shin (Park Yong-ha) borrows money from loan sharks, putting himself up as collateral. He needs the money to protect his family after his brother killed himself in response to being framed as having served contaminated dumplings. To break away from the grip of the loan sharks, Kim heads to the local broadcasting company to seek out the reporter who wrongly accused his brother. He ends up in an attempted murder case and goes to jail. His family is forced to sever all contact with him and flees to the countryside. It also means farewell to Kyeong-ah (Park Si-yeon), the woman whom he loves.

Zeroes in on making money
In jail, Kim finds out that a man named Chae Do-woo (Kim Kang-woo) of the Chaedong Group is deeply involved in the dumpling scandal. Encountering inmates from all walks of life, Kim transforms into a financially savvy man. He learns how to make money and how to live a money-centered life. Meanwhile Kyeong-ah, who has become involved in disreputable business in order to help Kim, also meets Chae Do-woo.

Money and revenge
Through fellow prisoner An Kyeong-tae (Park Ki-woong), Kim befriends Park Moon-ho (Lee Moon-shik) from the music cafe “Muse.” Along with another figure, Do Jae-myeong (Lee Philip), Kim creates a foursome “dream team” whose aim is to crush Chae in the dog-eat-dog financial world. Their total savings add up to a paltry 100 million won. That’s all they’ve got, and with this 100 million, they will have to stand up against the 400 billion won valued construction group Chaedong and Chae Do-woo. The war begins!

Philip Lee in Story of a Man

Following are news that came out regarding Philip Lee’s inclusion in the 2008 drama A Man’s Story (a.k.a. Story of a Man / Guy Talk / The Slingshot):

Most people got their first look at Philip Lee in the blockbuster fantasy-historical drama Legend (Taewangsashingi), in which he played the role of Cheoro. More than a year later, he’s returning to television in the new KBS series Story of a Man.

Story of a Man has already attracted notice for its scriptwriter, the much-lauded Song Ji-nah, who penned Legend as well as the (dare I say legendary?) 1995 drama Sandglass. It is said that Song wrote the character in this latest drama specifically for Philip Lee, who will display some of his English skills through his Korean-American character. The drama centers around a young rich man whose father’s business is bankrupted by a corrupt, large corporation, who then vows revenge.

The drama stars Park Yong-ha (On Air), Kim Kang-woo (Marine Boy), and Park Shi-yeon (La Dolce Vita) and will follow Boys Before Flowers on Mondays and Tuesdays starting late March.
