This image of him spread like wildfire on the Internet, but it led to his casting in a movie. He was offered a supporting role and was surprised to know the leading actress was Kim Hee-ja (Kim Seo-hyung).
On the set, Kim Hee-ja was highly focused on her role. She electrified Joon-ki, slapped him, and hit him in the head with a plant pot. Still, Lee Joon-ki was happy he was praised by the director.
However, Kim Hee-ja hated it when Joon-ki called her a 'senior'. It turned out his father, Lee Duk-hwa ,had asked favors for him to be cast. Joon-ki went to see his father and said, "I want to be honorable in front of you. Just sit back and wait. That's all I want from you". His father smiled proudly.
In the end, Joon-ki quit the movie and went back to being a home-shopping model. Then he was asked to be in a drama. This was a recommendation by Kim Hee-ja. Joon-ki was touched.
