Lee Seon-gyoon says single-episode dramas "got me where I am" 2010/06/01, Source, Lee Seon-gyoon is an actor who has built up his acting skills through single-episode dramas. From playing the swimmer character Lee Dong-gyung in the "Taereung National Village" episode of MBC's "Best Theater" series, a role that many people remember, to student Jin-goo studying for a national examination in the "Drama City - Romance" episode of KBS "Drama City", he began learning the craft of acting from single-episode dramas. The reason that Lee Seon-gyoon gained acclaim for his dramas including MBC's "Coffee Prince", "White Tower", and SBS' "My Sweet Seoul" and was able to win the lead roles in MBC's "Pasta" and film "Paju" was because he had built his acting career, one step at a time, from single-episode dramas. Lee Seon-gyoon himself admits, "Single-episode dramas got me where I am today". 10Asia met with actor Lee Seon-gyoon in Sokcho, Gangwon-do where he was shooting the "Drama Special - Our Erotic Love" episode for KBS, and talked about the importance of single-episode dramas and why they should continue to exist.

But he who was receiving the spotlight as a promising producer in the investigative reporting division of the news department, is assigned a post in the suburbs one day. And the program he is put in charge of is "My Heartwarming Hometown". The manager of his team tries to console him by saying they "do programs for Seoul once or twice a month" but all in vain. There is no way his words will reassure Dong-chan who emphasizes the importance of the media's function as a watchdog. Then Dong-chan experiences the most tragic accident of his life while at a beef soup restaurant -- the hot soup ends up wounding his 'private part'.
