Lee Tae-Ri first debuted through SBS sitcom “Soonpoong Clinic” in 1998. He was only a child, but he received much love nation-wide for his acting skills. Afterwards, he appeared in many other dramas, including 2012 hit drama “Moon Embracing the Sun.”

In the midst of the changes, he also has a Chinese film ‘Mystery Fighter’ premiere ahead of him. From Lee Min-Ho to Lee Tae-Ri, the actor plans to continue his growth as an actor not only domestically, but internationally.

Best of luck to Lee Tae-Ri!
