Lee Jung-jae Proves He Has Yet to Peak

2014/12/06 | 310 views | Permalink | Source

As the title of the movie suggests, actor Lee Jung-jae keeps running, jumping and fighting in "Big Match", an action comedy directed by Choi Ho that was released last week.

Lee plays a mixed martial arts fighter who tries to save his brother after he was kidnapped by a villain.

"When I was offered the role, some people tried to dissuade me, saying that I might not be young enough to manage brutal fight scenes", Lee said. "But I thought I had to do it before getting even older".

"I did about 80 percent of the action scenes, except some stunts like jumping from a roof or leaping over a bus", he said.

Lee, who was a big star in the 1990s, has been enjoying resurging popularity as he appeared in hit films "The Thieves" (2012), "The New World" (2013) and "The Face Reader" (2013).

But he feels he is at a crossroads in his acting career.

"What I want to do is often different from what I get to do", he explained. "Since I'm over 40 now I might have to focus on what I can do best".
