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

Recommended Posts

searchdoc.gif Mention of Lee Byung Hun in the recent episode 184 of JTBC variety show, Knowing Bros which featured the drama 'Chief of Staff' aka 'The President's Aide' starring Lee Jung Jae and Shin Min Ah.

 

SMA of course, was BH's co-star in A Bittersweet Life and Beautiful Days while Im Won Hee (IWH) was in Three, Monster. The guests on Knowing Bros were IWH, Lee Elijah and Kim Dong Joon.

 

Lee Byung Hun and his movies are definitely a favorite topic on the variety shows. His name will likely be mentioned whenever there's a chance, particularly if the guests had worked with him in the same drama or movie.

 

The related transcript from the show, to watch streaming (here at 16:15 time-mark) / article on Naver ++

 

Then do you fall in love with Min A by any chance?
IWH: There's no chance.
Because..
in 'A Bittersweet Life', Lee Byung Hun...
falls in love with the assemblywoman he serves. (however SMA's role wasn't an assemblywoman in BSL).
But that's Byung Hun.
I guess so.
IWH: (A sad laugh)
I guess it's because it was Byung Hun.
Kang Ho Dong: What a coincidence, we're all around the same age.
Really?
He's also the same age. You three are all the same age.
KHD: Won Hee, Byung Hun, and I are all the same age.
I guess that was possible only because it was Byung Hun.

Long time no see!

 

Personal life interfering my fan life.. but here with a news of program dealing with 2 genius directors and their personas. One of them is Kim Jiwoon and Lee ByungHun.

 

Movieroom episode 59, on Friday 6:30 PM KST, next week. Rewatch seems to be possible thru 

 

http://tv.jtbc.joins.com/replay/pr10010791/pm10048426

 

with fee, and not for where I am :(

 

Found a streaming of episode 59 but there's no English subs. Unlike reality/variety shows, there's never been subs available for this program.

 

Anyway, to watch the feature on LBH and Dir.KJW, click here. But the site could be 'problematic' with pop-ups or redirect. :sweatingbullets:

Mr sunshine, a 10/10 dramas that kept me on my toes. I barely skipped any part since every scene is just so beautifully made. The plot itself without the added romance or bromance is intriguing, the romance is on another level. Totally recommended. Wont regret watching this yall!

6/27 Lee Byung Hun sent a coffee truck support to Song Seung Hun at his filming site. Back in January, SSH had sent BH a coffee & tea truck at the filming set of The Man Standing Next. (pics posted here)

 

Byunghun doesn't usually send coffee trucks to anyone except for MJ as well as the production of Mr.Sunshine and his movies, so.. this is a nice treat to read. He did get a lot of support from colleagues (directors, co-stars & juniors) while filming the two new movies.

Caption:  Eugene Choi !! Thank you for your support ! (SSH re-enacting Mr.Sunshine famous scene)

 

Their friendship going back a long way with the last project together was Happy Together in 1999.

Watch Movies and Donate.. and Meet the Actor

Lee Byung Hun was the first actor participating and the tickets for him were sold out within 4 minutes. The event was held in Lotte Cinema Sungnam Central where during his childhood, BH had watched movies with his father. Byunghun chose Cinema Paradiso for his lifetime movie to share , and he gave the donation to Sungnam Haeun local children's center.

 

After LBH, it was JWS with his own movie 'Beat', actress Kim Hye Ja with her movie, 'Mother' and lastly, JIS with his movie, 'The King'. Only Lee Byung Hun had chosen to screen a movie that was not his own. This shows that BH is a true cinephile as fans have known him to watch various movies and even highlighting his faves on IG.
