Lee Hyun-jin (born March 5, 1985) is a South Korean actor. He is best known for the queer indie romance Boy Meets Boy, and the television series Heartstrings (in a supporting role as a singer with stage fright), as well as Operation Proposal (in which he was the second lead actor playing a baseball coach engaged to marry the heroine).[1]

He next appeared in the Korean-Japanese film Chubby Revolution, a romantic comedy that centers on a top model who upon hearing from a fortune teller that her photographer crush (played by Lee) prefers chubby women, decides to put on weight and put her job on the line in the name of love.[2][3] Encouraged by actor Kim Su-ro, Lee made his stage debut in Audacious Romance.[4]
