Since he debuted in the Korean entertainment industry back in 2003, Hyun Bin has been one of Korea’s most recognized stars. He is not only famous for his acting skills but also well-known as an accomplished singer and model. In this article, we will be looking at some of Hyun bin’s cinematic highlights.
How did Hyun Bin start his career?
When his modeling career first began, Hyun Bin quickly became known as one of the most sought-after talents in Asia. He soon followed up this accomplishment by acting and singing on a few occasions, but it wasn’t until 2003 when he gained international attention for his performance in “Love Story.”
Hyun Bin in “Love Story” movie
This movie’s title may be misleading as it is not the romantic comedy you might be expecting. The film tackles a grown woman’s search for her long-lost childhood love, and Hyun Bin plays both the adult and child versions of that character.
“My Name Is Kim Sam Soon,”
In 2006, he played opposite Kim Tae Hee in “My Name Is Kim Sam Soon,” which had been the most popular Korean drama of 2005.
“My Girlfriend is an Agent.”
This came in 2007. Hyun Bin played a vampire in “My Girlfriend is an Agent.” It was also around this time that he starred with top actress Kim Tae Hee for the third time. The movie was directed by the talented Kim Jin, Man of Crazy Love and Spellbound. It can be said that this film helped pave his way to stardom in Korea.
His last film to play was “Secretly Greatly.” This time he played a North Korean spy who infiltrates South Korea as part of an elite team. The character is posing undercover for 20 years and in this case, Hyun Bin had to age himself alongside his co-stars Kim Soo Ro and Song Yoon
