Lee Kwang Soo gained popularity in 2010 with his appearance on the profoundly famous South Korean variety show Running Man.

However, before that, he started his acting career in 2008 and showed up on screen for the first time in the sitcom Here He Comes and drama series The Scale of Providence.

It was then trailed by a role in High Kick Through the Roof (2009) and acquired a lot of recognition because of it. Just like that, he already made a name for himself.

He made a brave stride in 2013 playing a bad character in the drama series Goddess of Fire, for which he received a lot of appreciation.

Another flighty role showed up in 2014’s neo-noir movie Confession. One year later, he strolled the honorary pathway of the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival with his movie Collective Invention.
