According to a media outlet, Lee Jung Hyun joined the upcoming movie Determination to Part Ways, directed by Park Chan Wook, finalizing the major casting. The movie tells the story of a detective investigating the case of a man losing his footing in the woods and what happens when he begins to question the man’s wife. Earlier, Park Hae Il confirmed his appearance as a detective, while Tang Wei took on the role of the wife of a man who died in the woods. Park Yong Woo will star as a key figure related to Tang Wei, and Go Kyung Pyo will play Park Hae Il’s junior partner. This is the first time for all four actors to work with director Park Chan Wook. Lee Jung Hyun joined the project as Park Hae Il’s wife, reuniting with Park Chan Wook after 9 years since the film Night Fishing. Determination to Part Ways is the first Korean film by director Park Chan Wook in four years since The Handmaiden. After filming the British television drama series The Little Drummer Girl, he pushed for the long-prepared film The Ax. However, when several issues, including investments, surfaced, Park Chan Wook started preparing for Determination to Part Ways. Determination to Part Ways is in the midst of last-minute pre-production work to start filming in October. Source (1)

According to a media outlet, Kang Ha Neul will appear in the drama Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart as Ondal’s father. He was originally offered to play the role of Ondal, but decided to take on another character as it became impossible to join the project as lead role due to his movie schedules. Onhyeop, played by Kang Ha Neul, is the father of the male lead Ondal. He is one of the main characters in the early parts of the drama, and will instill an image of “the nation’s General.” Yesterday, news of the actor declining the offer to play Ondal was released, disappointing fans who have been waiting for Son Ye Jin and Kang Ha Neul on the same project. Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart is a historical drama that tells the tragic love story between Princess Pyeonggang, who uses Ondal’s feelings to her advantage, and Ondal, who makes foolish sacrifices. Earlier, it was reported that Son Ye Jin and Kang Ha Neul are in talks to star as Princess Pyeonggang and Ondal. Source (1)

"True Beauty" is a rom-com drama telling about Ju Gyeong - the girl using makeup to turn herself into a goddess after having an appearance complex - and Su Ho - the man who carries a wounded heart within himself. After their encounter, the two gradually share their secrets, from which they get mature little by little and restore their self-esteem.

At a press junket for the drama in December 2019, just ahead of its airing, he appeared wearing a black turtleneck sweater and white pants matched with a camel-colored velvet jacket. For a press event for another hit drama series, "Memories of the Alhambra," in November 2018, he also appeared in a black turtleneck sweater, but wore it with a grey double-breasted suit, finishing the dandy outfit with black dress shoes. In fact, Hyun Bin has been fashionable on every occasion, even looking back to several years ago in the early 2000s. In 2008, he attended a press event for his drama "Worlds Within" in a suit and tie, unconventionally matched with a white V-neck T-shirt. At the press event for MBC's TV series "Friend, Our Legend" the following year, he appeared in a school uniform and short hairstyle that fit his role in the series. At a press conference for SBS' megahit drama series "Secret Garden" in 2010, he showed up in an all-black outfit, making him simply look stylish. On his way to start mandatory military service in March 2011, he opted for a casual, comfy look in a grey hoodie under a safari jacket with a baseball cap and sneakers.
