    @kansas424, I think he does attend such events frequently esp for his works, and seems to enjoy them always. I love Masquerade one where they did Thanks viewers event for 10M ticket sales.

    Yup, I had to reset my password too. From Star Chair event, during the question about his dance clip(referring as dark history), BH responding "Why is that a dark history" and showing the dance motion. he's so cheerful I can't help but laugh.

    BH also shared his photo from Star Chair event. Also, @rubie and @2handsintertwined I think somebody asked about his instagram and SNS in the event, and about that arena dance clip(which are being called dark history). From posted part(in BH dc gallery), he said he doesn't think that is it is dark history at all... and he wouldn't have done it in the fan meeting if he thought it would be considered dark. There are actually funnier clips but he doesn't share it to keep people from laughing watching his serious movies. When he posts on instagram, he wants people to see his posts and smiles, even for a short time. Fan posted personal clip made in youtube. Please enjoy! "
  4. There was a filming session of commentary for Mr. Sunshine Blu-ray last weekend. Director KEB, writer KES, and all the main casts( LBH, KTR, KMJ, YYS, and BYH ) were there. BH uploaded the photo to his instagram. This will be included in Mr. Sunshine Blu-ray, and now we just need to wait. (I can't wait to watch what they are talking about here! ) Just FYI, snacks and gifts were fan support (from http://cafe.daum.net/MrSunshineBD and Mr Sunshine dc gallery), prepared by Blu-ray support team.

    Argh.. I wish. I do check plane ticket now and then.. but no not this time :'( @rubie! Thank you for posting those photos and link it to date! I love his Instagram posts, to me, it's a nice mix of recent and old photos and news. And he's interacting(sort of) with his fans, which is great change comparing old days. I think he said he didn't want to appear too much on talk show because an actor needs to be able to become a character to audience and his private self being known too much would hinder that, which theory I could agree, basically. But being as a shallow fan as I am, I am glad to see snapshot of his life and happy he's doing just that! And knowing he is a silly person who loves to joke doesn't hinder this fan from enjoying his serious works, not at all. So Byunghun oppa, post long and post often!
  6. Production company(staffs, casts) had opening rite for the movie on Jan 28th. Crank-in is scheduled to start in this month.

    BH's new event. From his instagram Lotte Cultureworks is having an event called "Star Chair", a series of fundraising events for inviting actors/actresses for their favorite movies. All sales will go to local walfare group, and in addition to that, one chair in the theater will get a special cover and sales on that chair will be donated for 1 year. BH's been invited for 1st event, with his life time favorite movie "Cinema Paradiso"(1998, director Giuseppe Tornatore). This event will be held on Feb. 10th(Sun), 10 AM(GV after movie), in Lotte Cinema Sungnam Central(Shinheung station) -I guess the threater is picked because BH grew up there. there's tag under the location, saying "Sungnam, where actor Lee Byung-Hun grew with dream" -. Seems that he will have a talk with audience after the movie. Ticketing will start on Feb-1st Friday 11 AM(Korean Local Time). It seems to be very nice event and great cause to join in with BH.

    His caption is , There is a saying you'll look like someone whom you have liked for long time. Perhaps I should stop liking him. #Not mirror #JungDooHong They are photos of BH with martial art director Jung Doohong who also did stunt double for BH in his movies. They have been good friends for so long, JDH was the martial art director in BH's movie "Run away"(1995) and stunt in the movie "Kill the love"(1996). Very nice to see them having nice photo moments.
  9. Here is nice mention of BH in latest article from, Cine21 Article on "Chiefs of Namsan" , Director WMH interview. "I thought that my movie career may end after this film. But I still did it." Continuing the streak of <Inside men>(2015) and <Drug King>(2018), Director Woo Minho again puts his hand on bigger accusation report of modern history. <Chiefs of Namsan> is an espionage thriller based on Kim Choong Sik's novel with same name, about Korean Central Intelligence Agency(KCIA) ‘s ‘Mafia like’ intelligence activities and secret stories and histories during the president Park Junghee’s 18 years of reign. This film will study the realities of 1970’s reign of terror closely, focusing on Kim Gyupyung(Lee Byung-hun) and Park Yonggak(Gwak Dowon) who shot the president Park(Lee Sungmin) who was at the top of the power. “I cannot ignore my feelings that the current issues have roots in parent’s time of 1970s.” In the middle of shooting which was cranked in Oct. last year, director WMH is working on this with the resolution that “this is the end of accusation series”. “If I filmed <Drug Kin> with fun, now I’m holding out day after day, with doubts. We met director WMH on thin ice, in the center of set. - Getting close to 1970’s reign of fear based on original novel with same name. I read original novel <Chiefs of Namsan> when I was in college. Writer Kim Choongsik published serial report articles he did in <Donga newspaper> during 90s under president “Noh Taewoo”. Original novel was a bestseller back then, sold 520K copies, and this represents the text for modern/present political history of Korea. Among Japanese journalists this is the book that should be read before coming to Korea. I wanted to do this because it was really movie worthy story as well as major historical event but afraid to do so. After I was done with <Inside men>, I thought of doing this again. - Why do you wanted to do this movie for so long, and what’s the main focus of the story? Central Intelligence Agency was the center of 1970s dictatorship government after October restoration. Because of that power, things were eventually lead to the final collapse. To Oct 26th(*translator note: this is the day President Park was shot). I’m describing 40 days before the event. What happened during that 40 days that result to the final end. I wanted to make a movie focused on events, not on characters. <Drug King> was formed on characters without big events, this movie is closer to <Inside men>. <Drug King> described 10 years, physical time in this movie is much shorter. So things will move faster, and how to liven up the tension is the issue. - This reminds us the movie <The president’s last bang> by director Lim Sangsoo, dealing with same time and assassination of the man in power. <The president’s last bang> doesn’t put emphasis on the event. Rather than focusing on why Kim Jaegyu shot Park Jung hee, and their emotions, it was more of black comedy drawing messy status of nation and pathetic men. My movie focuses on why so it’ll have different tones. I’m centering what is the characteristic of power, and why they behaved that way. - How did you interpret main characters “Chiefs of namsan” who were parasites of fear mongering politics and abandoned at the end. Park Junghee didn’t even trust KCIA who is the closest aids. Chiefs were the 2nd in power and this is the story of them, but they were all discarded in the end. Those who were at the center of the power but didn’t really have any power. Even Park Junghee, who was at the top of the power for 18 years, thought to be enjoying it and trying to hold on to it, but he missed the chance to step down and got the wretched end, as the power dictated. Power is always there, and there will be another faction who wants it. We thought it is where the major power is, but in reality, it may not be anything, just empty space. They were just servants of the power and it’s the power which moved. - Chief Kim Gyupyung is interesting character with complexities, who was the closest aide to president Park but become a shooter who killed the president. You’re working again with Lee Byunghun after <Inside men> This is a role that needs to foreshadow future events and to show complex mindsets thru minimal lines. And also needs to present even the smallest things with detail. I can’t think of anyone else can do it, if Lee Byunghun doesn’t do this role, so I didn’t send script to any other actor. After <Inside men> I told him I bought the right for movie for original novel and wanted to do it together. Back then it was under president Park Geunhye(* translator note: president Park Junghee’s daughter), and this scenario deals with subject matters anyone rarely want to jump on but he gave me ok. - This is dramatized movie, but reminds us the ties with actual people. Not for all characters but some are modeled with real people in mind. Lee Byung hun has some points that remind us some of Kim Jaegyu, Lee Heejoon, the role of Gawk( which could be Cha JiChul) gained weight for the role. The actor who reminds us president Jeon shaved his head, and I think it’s fun try for outside appearance. The name “President Park” is the only one that’s real, everyone else uses different name and not real name. - Actors from <Drug King>, Lee Sungmin, Lee Heejoon and Kim Sojin appears again in this movie. Actor Lee Sungmin only has short scene in <Drug King> but in this movie he’ll have more presence as President Park. I managed to persuade him (laughing) for the role. Actor Lee Heejoon and actress Kim Sojin from <Drug King> will have bigger roles in this movie. They’ll show how main characters like chief Kim, president Park, security chief Gwak, chief Park and Debora Shim go against each other and struggles thru their superb acting. <Chiefs of Namsan> Dir Woo Minho/Casts Lee Byunghun, Lee Sungmin, Gawk Dowon, Lee Heejoon, Kim Sojin/ Production company Zemstone pictures, Hive Media Corp./Distribution Showbox/Release 2019 Synopsis. In 1970s Washington DC, U.S. It is in the middle of hearing titled “Korea gate” on Korean lobbyists and US senates who’s in suspicion for being lobbied. Then, Korea was under the power of KCIA which was above national assembly, political parties, Constitution, militaries or police, and dictator “president Park” who controlled the KCIA. It was the time of terror that if you were against the changes in Constitution, you were considered against the power and discarded. Former KCIA chief Park Yonggak(Gawk Dowon) with the secret of the power and under constant threat of death, decided to seek asylum in US. Espionage and power struggle will follow between the 2nd in powers, KCIA chief Kim Gyupyung(Lee Byunghun) who did the core role for keeping absolute power, Aspiring 2nd in power Gawk Sangchun security chief(Lee Heejoon) and lobbyist Debora Shim. Another 1970s story after <Drug King> Drug king put light upon the year of 1972 and 10 years afterward, this movie will show later 1970s. How to differentiate. Woo Minho said “Even though it’s the same 1970s, this movie’s tone will be much different from <Drug King>”. Less glamor and more of even tone concept. Filming and art in production will be minimal to put focus on acting. “Referring movies of Jean-Pierre Melville”, will present mystery spy story of cold noir with assassination subject. While <Drug King> showed us various images from Korea in 1970s, this time movie will have scenes between the Blue house, KCIA building and safe house. And scenery of Washington DC and Paris of 1970s, where the assassination will take place, will be something to look forward to. Article:Lee Whajung Photo: Choi Sungyeul.

    Thank you @peonie, haha, it just happened that GBW is my first movie of BH to become a fan. - Before I only knew him from Tomorrow Love. And then I watched A bittersweet life, and that was it for me. And all GBW commentary/interview is really fun to listen, you can feel that they suffered a lot but together they had lots of fun. The DVD commentary is a must listen. Here is nice mention of BH in latest article from, in red color, Cine21 Article on "Chiefs of Namsan" , Director WMH interview. translation is by me.

    BH's new instagram, caption saying Good posture is fundamental to all sports. But I realized there were important things other than fundamentals then....(I'm not a referee here). #GBW #Doonhuang #Soccergame In some GBW interview(or clips), I remember JWS was talking about soccer game style of SGH and LBH.(found article here). By JWS, "Gangho hyung does army sergeant soccer. He just stands near goal post, scores all the goals and does the ceremony. Byunghun hyung does healthy baby soccer, running the field no relation to the ball, like doing personal training." "We did games between actor team and action actor team. We lost to action actor team every time so main casts had to pay betting money, but Gangho hyung insisted he's not main casts every time at that moment(when he had to pay)" I like he's sharing fun and making jokes on his instagram. It makes this fan's waiting period until his next project much easier.

    Seems that BH is sharing fun with his wife LMJ thru instagram. LMJ said No more(or Stop), and BH is now asking one more time ( with hashtag #No more now ) Another BH's reading book in Millie's, coming soon. (Image from twitter AtlatusDeus twitter). The selfish gene by Richard Dawkins, this reading book will be released on Jan-21st on Millie with BH's voice. More than 40 years since this book was published, but I'm sure the book is still fresh esp. with BH reading it. I was thinking about dropping this service, but Millie knows how to keep customers.
