Adding to this, he also gave an update regarding the possibility of season 2 of MBC’s “Chief Detective 1958.”

“I instinctively feel that the stories people are interested in and want to see are about justice and retribution. People in the world desire poetic justice and retribution.”

For him, given that “society doesn’t always provide that,” viewers find enjoyment and satisfaction in these types of dramas. 

“This is why I think people love and seek out such works, and I am naturally drawn to them as well.”

However, Lee Je Hoon also believes that he should “show more diverse sides” of himself instead of being known for portraying anti-heroes. 

As mentioned, Lee Je Hoon headlined MBC’s “Taxi Driver” seasons 1 and 2. He took on the role of a former special forces officer who was recruited to join a secret organization that protects and avenges victims from their perpetrators.
