He appeared on the JTBC TV show "Knowing Brothers" on the 20th and shared that he had auditioned for "The King and the Clown".
He had a 3,000:1 chance at the time and the original was based on a famous theater play, so the casting had to be a shocking rookie. There were three auditions that went on for a month.
Lee Joon-gi said, "They said the movie could fail miserably due to Gong-gil. All 3,000 competitors were pretty. I was 24-years-old at the time. I thought I needed to stand out, so I performed a stunt and the production loved it. I stood on my hands and did a sideways split. I did the stunt in the real movie, too".
