“Lee Jung-jae…beat Jeremy Strong and Jason Bateman to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series,” GQ wrote.

The magazine said Lee stands among breakout stars, career-defining performances, and sports greatness in 2022. It cited his status as the star of Squid Game–one of Netflix’s most-watched shows ever.

“Coupled with a Cannes directorial debut for Hunt, it’s been a huge year for the 49-year-old,” GQ concluded.

This year’s Men of the Year honourees include Marisa Abela, Sheila Atim, Kit Connor, Emma D’Arcy, Es Devlin, Leon Edwards, Mo Farah, Andrew Garfield, Stephen Graham, Jack Harlow, Myha’la Herrold, Sharon Horgan, Michael Imperioli, David Jonsson, Lee Jung-jae, Zoë Kravitz, Harry Lawtey, Joe Locke, Louis Theroux, Joseph Quinn, Stormzy, Sydney Sweeney, Max Verstappen, Ashley Walters, Ben Whishaw, and Leah Williamson.
