Lee Sang Yoon is one of those perfect leading men. He can easily play the guy next door, genius professor, or even a king, wooing us with his gorgeous dimples. That is why this week we are taking a look at the filmography of Lee Sang Yoon. So come join me as I chat about the good, the bad, and the maybe if I am in the mood, dramas of his career.
The Rules of Fangirl Stalking:
We will start with the dramas I think are must watch works by the actor. Followed by the shows that could go either way. This means that they are worth watching in my opinion, but I know there are some people who don’t like the genre. Lastly, we will cover the dramas/movies that you really could skip and not miss much (at least in regards of the actor/actress featured). These are the shows that are for die-hard fans who want to watch everything. So let’s jump into obsessing about the always sexy Lee Sang Yoon
Twenty Again – This is the perfect drama if you are looking for an older cast and a cute rom-com plot. Twenty Again is the story of No Ra, a recent divorcee, who is taking charge of her life and going back to college. There she meets her childhood friend played by Lee Sang Yoon who happens to be one of her professors. The show switches between humor and poignant moments surrounding the ideas of lost opportunities and 2nd chances. It is a must watch for a Lee Sang Yoon fan.
Liar Game – Liar Game is an intellectual drama that focuses on people’s psychological intelligence; pitting them against each other to win ten million through a game show. The plot focuses on whether a person can be ethical and win or do you have to cheat and steal your way to the top? If you are looking for romance, this is NOT the drama for you. However, if you want to watch LSY play a brilliant ex-con who outwits various foes then give it a spin.
My Daughter Seo Young – This is my Lee Sang Yoon pick for those of you searching for a makjang melodrama. Woo Jae is the son of a wealthy family who falls in love with his brother’s poor tutor. He marries her, only to find out that she has secrets hidden in her past that might destroy their marriage.
Depending On My Mood
Angel Eyes – I loved 2/3rds of this touching drama about finding one’s first love. Sadly, it did drag towards the end. Not so much because of our leading man, but the leading lady went a little bit annoying. That said, it is still worth a marathon if you are watching for Lee Sang Yoon.
On the Way to the Airport – This drama is only 8 episodes in and might get moved down to the Die Hard Fan section depending on the ending. While I am not in love with the show, I do find it fascinating watching these two people fall in love with each other despite knowing they will be ruining their marriages. Only time will tell where this drama will end up on my list but for now, it is in the middle.
For the Die Hard Fans
Goddess Of Fire, Jeongi -I didn’t enjoy this drama at all. Will admit I only made it around half way through so maybe it got better? If you are a die-hard Lee Sang Yoon fan you might want to give it a try. As for me, it is officially dropped.
Til our next stalking adventure,

Goddess of Fire was so, so dull. I only made it halfway too.
“Angel Eyes” had it’s problems….but Lee Sang Yoon was not one of them!
Did you see him in the Life is Beautiful drama? Excellent, well done family drama… but that is where I first saw him and fell in love with those dimples!
I have not yet. It is on my to watch list
He is gorgeous! Unfortunately I always find myself drama dropping with him and it’s NOT HIS FAULT. They’re just never my type of drama. Something did click once, Most people forget the Makjang mystery, My Happy Home, where he plays a scruffy, grumpy detective who slowly falls for Kim Hye Soo’s character when her wayward husband is accused of murder. I can understand why it’s not on most people’s watchlist, but once I got arts I couldn’t stop, like eating Pringles or popping candy corns.
