Other than work, which he is tirelessly dedicated to, Lee enjoys extreme sports, collects action figures, and takes care of beetles at home.

When disaster hits Seoul, the skillful doctor rushes to the scene to save lives.

"D-Day" will employ CGI graphics and a star-studded cast. The TV drama is soon expected to announce a formal broadcast date.

Kim, a former model, most recently played a supporting role in the popular TV romantic drama "Pinocchio."
