On February 7, Lee attended a press conference for KBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday series Iris 2 in Seoul and made short remarks, “I’ll do my best.”
When he was asked about leaving the show and the note that he left on his fansite, he answered shortly, “I’ll work hard and do my best.”
Lee previously left the show with actress Oh Yeon Seo.
The new series is about revealing the secret organisation Iris and Mr. Black three years after Hyun Jun (played by Lee Byung Heon) died on the previous season.
The series will air on February 13 when the current airing series Jeon Woochi goes off the air.
