Lee Byung Hun 이병헌 Byunghun Lee :: July 12 Happy Birthday!

Recommended Posts

March 18, 2019

 

Having been captivated by the drama “Mr. Sunshine” and in particular, mesmerised  by Byung Hun-ssi's acting,   it is impossible to not visit “Sunshine Studio”  while I was in Seoul.   Going there is not an easy task.  We decided to take the KTX train from Yongsan train station to Nonsan where the Sunshine Studio studio is located.   The train took one hour and 37 minutes.  When we arrived at Nonsan, we were approached by a taxi driver who said he can drive us there.  This was a correct decision as the trip was much shorter and we avoided having to walk at least 20 minutes from the bus stop to the Studio in the rain.  The bus ride would have taken more than 45 minutes!

 

Visiting Sunshine Studio is the best way to recapture the moments of the drama and to imagine oneself in Hanseong as Seoul was known in that time.  The set looked authentic.   However, I cannot find Room 304  where Eugene stayed.   The Director was very clever to take shots at the right angles to let us imagine a far bigger set with many more rooms.

Here's the Lifeplus interview clip on Youtube. Come to think of it, this is more likely another version of the CF conveyed by Lee Byung Hun. It's especially wonderful to see his endorsements (coffee, cosmetics, insurance) signed in 2018 have been renewed for 2019, plus a new game CF as well.

On March 14th, actor Kim Young Chul (A Bittersweet Life, IRIS) appeared on SBS' entertainment program 'We Will Channel You' (episode 16, 3/14) and he mentioned quite a bit about Lee Byung Hun.

 

Here's the first part, via rough transcript (some info about Brawl Stars, 13:20)

 

Kang Ho Dong (KHD, host): You know, MFBH, right?
Kim Young Chul (KYC): MFBH?
KHD: What do you think that is?
KYC: MFBH?
Yes.
This person is related to you.
My Friendly..
Okay...
Byung Hun.
My Friend Byung Hun.
(It's My Friend Byung Hun)
MFBH stands for My Friend Byung Hun.
We're friends.
I see.
Didn't you two shoot a commercial?
Well, it's only going to show up on Youtube.
Okay.
"You humiliated me" is in the commercial. (KYC's famous line in BSL)
That will be in the commercial.
That was pretty simple too.
It only took an hour. (KYC telling that CF filming doesn't take long)
My gosh, this is all new to me.
What kind of commercial is it?
It's for a game. It's for a game.
Goodness.
He's filming a game commercial.
The most sought-after stars film game commercials nowadays.

Second part: Rough transcript from 'We Will Channel You' (episode 16, 3/14), Q&A of Lee Byung Hun as answered by Kim Young Chul.

 

The streaming here, at 39.58 time-mark

 

KHD: MFBH stands for "My Friend Byung Hun".
They say a genius recognizes another genius.
Was he different when you first met him?
KYC: When I was playing a lead role,
Byung Hun entered KBS as a member of the 14th group of actors.
In the drama "Sons of the Wind",
I acted as Byung Hun's elder brother.
While being chased, I got hit by a truck. And I am close to dying.
Byung Hun finds me.
He holds me and says, "You can't die, my brother".
That's the scene.
I had to lie on his knee and die.
But Byung Hun was acting so well.
"Don't die." (KYC showing how BH acted)
I had to die, but I couldn't stop crying.
His acting was different every time.
So, I cried every  time.
(Talented rookie Byung Hun was different).

Third part: Rough transcript from 'We Will Channel You' (episode 16, 3/14), actor Kim Young Chul talked about Lee Byung Hun, his Omma and their generosity.

 

Previously senior actresses praised BH on his hardworking attitude (posted here), this time actor Kim Young Chul shared his thoughts.

 

The streaming here, at 40:51 time-mark // related Korean updates here th_zz_searchdoc.gif

KYC: One day, he said during the shoot,
"My uncle went to.."
"the same high school."
"My uncle is Park Chang Geun."
"Park Chang Geun? He was my buddy."
Was he your good friend?
Yes.
I went to his house in Daebang-dong..
and ate with him a lot.
You were close friends. 
Yes.
Goodness.
Yes.
We got to know each other.
I told Byung Hun, "Okay, Good luck."
We became acquaintances.
Then we were both on "IRIS".
I see.
Yes.
We went to Turkey for a shoot.
Yes.
I arrived there and went to my room.
(In my room..)
There were side dishes. 
Korean food? Yes.
Kimchi, salted seafood, stir-fried anchovies, and others.
Korean side dishes taste more delicious overseas.
Home cooked side dishes. It's the best.
I asked Byung Hun, "Waht's this?"
He said, "My mom.."
"told me to give this to you."
I told him thank you.
That's the best gift,
His uncle and I were friends.
Yes.
In high school, I called Byung Hun's mom big sister.
She doesn't remember me, 
but I do because she was there when I went over to play.
Byung Hun's mom.. makes kimchi every year.
She calls me and says, 
"Yeong Cheol, come and get your kimchi."
She calls me every time.

KYC: I'm grateful to Byung Hun.
I was the president of Actors' Association seven years ago.
Actors' Association isn't doing well financially...
because the member's fee.. isn't much.
I had to run it for three years.
It's a burden.
Yes.
So I called Byung Hun. (re-enacting their telephone conversation)
"Hi, Byung Hun."
"Congratulations, Yeong Cheol."
"Don't just say congratulations."
(He utilizes Kim Du Han's negotiation skills again = KYC's famous character)
"Since you got a lot of work these days,"
"donate 100,000 dollars for the members of the association,"
"I'll be waiting." (KYC made a joke.)
Three days later, he called.
"It's me." "Yes. Hi."
"Did you send the money?" (KYC was kidding)
"Well..."
"Will 50,000 dollars be okay?" (=50 million won)
"Okay, thank you!"
(Mr.Sunshine is a donation angel.)
(KYC CF line = Mr. 4-Dollar is really different.)
So.. he sent 50,000 dollars that day.
I was so grateful.

I'm his uncle's friend,
but I haven't done anything for him.
I'm still very grateful.
You must be.

This is the 3rd (final) version of the Brawl Stars CF on Youtube. Even more hilarious and (acting cool) BH is so funny trying to hide from his opponents. :P LOL..the bartender part is just..th_lmfao.gif 

 

Looks like the creator of the CF is another fan of Lee Byung Hun as it features his concert dance moves and especially his hit movies. Similar to 'fangirl' KES and how the scenes in Mr. Sunshine having direct/indirect reference to BH movies. ^_^
