Lee Dong-wook made his acting debut in 1999, and went on to appear in a number of TV series before hitting stardom with 2005 romantic comedy My Girl. The drama series became a hit during its run both domestically and across Asia, and made Lee a Korean Wave star. He has since starred in noir La Dolce Vita (2008), courtroom dramedy Partner (2009), melodrama Scent of a Woman (2011), baseball rom-com Wild Romance (2012), period thriller The Fugitive of Joseon (2013), and revenge drama Hotel King (2014), in which he reunited with My Girl co-star Lee Da-hae. He then starred in fantasy-action series Blade Man and romance drama Bubble Gum.
In November 2011, Lee signed with talent agency King Kong Entertainment, which also manages fellow actors Lee Kwang-soo, Lee Chung-ah and Kim Sun-a.
Lee and comedian Shin Dong-yup took over as MCs of talk show Strong Heart from April 2012 to January 2013. Lee also joined the reality show Roommate, which aired from 2014 to 2015.
From 2016-2017, Lee starred alongside Gong Yoo in Kim Eun-sook's fantasy-romance drama Guardian: The Lonely and Great God. The drama was a hit, and along with its success, helped in the resurgence of Lee's acting career.
