[VIDEO NEWS] Universities attended by famous actors and directors.

 

Source: INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily

 

 

1) No.5: Korea National University of Arts 

2) Actor Lee Jae-hun, who brought us all to tears with his stunning performance as a passive boy in ‘Architecture 101’ and whose on-screen chemistry with Nah Mun-hee in ‘I Can Speak’ is palpable, graduated from K’Arts. 

3) Park so-dam, perhaps best remembered for his iconic demonic possession in ‘The priests,’ and Kim Dong-uk, whose use of sign language in ‘Along with Gods’ surely emptied many a tissue box, also both graduated from K’Arts. Both majored in Acting.

4) Lee Jeong-beom, who directed the seminal ‘The Man from Nowhere,’ also graduated from K’Arts. He majored in directing.

5) No.4: Hanyang University

6) Screen idols Seol Kyung-goo and Lee Kyung-young, famous for their stirring performances in a number of films, graduated from Hanyang.

7) Hanyang’s Erica Campus is also known for producing famous actors and directors. The school ranks as high as No. 8.

8) Lee Byung-hun, who starred in six movies, all of which make top 100 Korean films list, graduated from Hanyang’s Erica Campus. Lee majored in French Literature.

9) Kang Dong-won also graduated from the Erica Campus with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

10) Director Na Hong-jin, famous for ‘The Chaser’ and ‘The Wailing,’ majored in Plastic Arts at the same university before studying Directing at K’Arts.

11) No.3: Dongguk University.

12) Actor Choi Min-sik who works tirelessly entered this University’s acting department in 1981.

13) Three of his films, ‘Roaring Currents’, ‘Nameless Gangster: Rules of Time’ and ‘New World,’ made the top 100 Korean films list.

14) The ever-cool Lee Jung-jae, famous for his portrayal of villainous characters, was a junior student of Choi Min-sik’s. 

15) Jeon Ji-hyun and Kim Hye-su, who also starred in ‘Thieves,’ also graduated from Dongguk. 

16) The late Kim Ju-hyeok, famous for ‘Confidential Assignment’ and ‘Believer,’ is also a Dongguk alumnus.

17) No.2: Chung-Ang University.

18) Both actor Ha Jeong-woo, who starred in 12 top 100 Korean movies, and his best friend, Director Yun Jong-bin, are Chung-Ang University alumni. Their friendship, transcending academic ties, has lead Ha to star in a number of Yun’s films.

19) Their films together include ‘KUNDO: Age of the Rampant’ and ‘Beastie Boys’. 

20) But which university ranked first?

21) No.1: Seoul Arts University.

22) Hwang Jeong-min, Yoo Hae-jin, Ryu Seung-ryong and Kim Meong-min are all alumni of Seoul Arts University.

23) Director Kim Ji-wun, perhaps most famous for his ‘The good, the bad and the weird,’ is yet another alumnus. 

24) As is Han Je-rim, who directed ‘The Face Reader’ and ‘The King’.

25) Let’s recap:

26) When it comes to the Yonsei University and Korea University box office rivalry, Yonsei University emerges as the clear winner. 

27) Kim Han-min, who directed ‘Roaring Currents,’ Lee Yong-ju, the director of ‘Architecture 101’ and Bong Jun-ho are all graduates from Yonsei University. 

28) Korea University has but two directors with films that hit the ten million audience range. 

29) Directors Yang woo-suk, who directed ‘Steel Rain’ and ‘The Lawyer’ Director, and Yun Jae-gyun both studied at Korea University. The former majored in English Literature and the latter in Economics. 

30) Seoul National University wasn’t far behind at No.7.

31) Directors Lee Jae-gyu, who directed ‘Damo’ and ‘The Fatal Encounter,’ and Hwang Dong-hyeok, who directed ‘The Fortress’ and ‘Miss Granny,’ both majored in Media & Communications at Seoul National University.

32) Director Jang Hun of ‘The Taxi Driver’ and Director Jo Sung-hee who made ‘A Werewolf Boy,’ both majored in Art at the same school.

33) But let’s not forget…

34) Song Gang-ho, Kim Yun-seok and Zo Zin-woong all are from Busan.

His manager indicated that they were filming in Washington DC before, perhaps his scenes were not that extensive that he's more in New York instead. Could be there are NY scenes as well.

 

Thanks to gist by mistymorning.. someone who attended the KACF Gala on the 8th mentioned that LBH was looking really good, happy and glowing. He took photos with everyone but left in the middle of the event.

Thanks to @kansas424 for the idea & info and @mistymorning for the clip highlight & input, lets start a fun fan-topic th_coffee5.gif

 

I Spy: mrs.jpg MR.SUNSHINE vs LEE BYUNG HUN

 

Come post and share similar items/dialogues/concepts spotted in the recently-concluded MR.SUNSHINE with those you've seen in previous LBH's movies or drama series.

 

Examples

 

1. Eugene's Music Box  vs the Orgel in ALL IN (2003)

2. AeShin's red pinwheel vs red pinwheel in THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (2016) 

 

mag7_mrs_pw.gif

 

3. Kyle's gloved right hand vs Ahn Sang Goo in INSIDE MEN (2015) 

 

im_mrs_hand.gif

 

4. Eugene's Matryoshka/Russian Doll vs A BITTERSWEET LIFE (2005) - this is such a nice surprise to know. The scene was deleted from the movie but included in the Director's Cut DVD.

@rubie  Magnificient GIF!!!  hehe

 

LOL! I'm actually wrecking my thinking capth_boredom.gif.. trying to remember other scenes and similarities. There are a few in mind but getting the scenes would be a challenge. :lol: But will try to.. will do.. 

 

If anyone has any feasible ideas, I'll certainly make more gifs.

 

On with the list:

 

5. He was the dorky In Woo in love with Tae Hee, their scenes started awkwardly in BUNGEE JUMPING OF THEIR OWN (2001) vs the most intimate sweetest gesture we have in MR.SUNSHINE.

6. The reason why Ae Shin never got to memorize and practice the letter K. It's forever stuck in Kang Jae Hoon's world in A SINGLE RIDER (2017).

Oh.. no spoilers, then. th_no2.gif It's his son learning English, hence the alphabets. The boy lives in Australia with his mom and misses the father a lot. The last "K" he wrote.. name of his dad, played by BH.

Another MR.SUNSHINE quote by byunghun0712 on his latest IG post, photos of the Hudson River. His manager posted that they were staying at the Mandarin Oriental in NY. Looks like they've checked out today? (11/11 refer here)

 

LBH's caption: Hudson River is not slippery when frozen :lol:

LEE Byung-hun, LEE Sung-min and KWAK Do-won Enter 1970s Political Thriller
INSIDE MEN Director and Star Reunite for CHIEFS OF NAMSAN

 

by Pierce Conran KoBiz

 

PudVelakuZQReKohkbra.jpg


The director and star of Inside Men (2015) are teaming up again for a new political thriller. Chiefs of Namsan (translated title), based on the 1992 book of the same name, will star LEE Byung-hun alongside LEE Sung-min and KWAK Do-won, with WOO Min-ho handling the director’s reins. The film kicked off production on October 20 and will continue filming into the new year.

 

Set in the politically turbulent 1970s, Chiefs of Namsan will see LEE take on the role of Kim Kyu-pyung (based on the former Korean Central Intelligence Agency chief KIM Jae-gyu). LEE Sung-min (seen in The Spy Gone North and The Witness this year) is playing President Park (based on PARK Chung-hee), while KWAK (lead of last winter’s Steel Rain) is on board as Park Yong-gak (based on KIM Hyung-wook, a previous KCIA head). In real life, KIM Jae-gyu is known as President PARK Chung-hee’s assassin.

 

Also in the cast are LEE Hee-jun (1987: When the Day Comes, 2017) as Kwak Sang-chun, the Chief Officer of Presidential Security, and KIM So-jin (The King, 2017) as the lobbyist Deborah Shim.

 

When LEE and director WOO last teamed up they landed a huge hit with the acclaimed hit Inside Men. The film attracted over nine million viewers in late 2015. WOO will surely be very busy at year’s end, as production on Chiefs of Namsan will clash with his promotional obligations for his upcoming 1970s-set crime drama The Drug King, featuring SONG Kang-ho and BAE Doo-na, which is expected to come out in December. WOO’s earlier works include Man Of Vendetta (2010) and The Spies (2012).

7. The EuShin lobeu drawer box vs the security box in IRIS (2009). Even with more than a century apart, the message mode never changes. :P

From his manager's IG posts, Lee Byung Hun & co. have been to the HBO Office, UTA and Legendary Entertainment while they were in LA, where he also attended the annual LACMA Art+Film Gala as well as meeting relatives & friends. After LA, they were in Washington DC for CHIEFS OF NAMSAN filming and then staying in New York, attending the KACF Gala and visiting acquaintances. From the aerial photos of Hudson River, presumably taken from air, they're either continuing the US trip or flying to France(?) or coming home. Now, we wait for follow-up news from BH Ent.'s business meetings -- perhaps some joint venture projects, maybe a new Hollywood feature which hopefully we'll hear soon apart from more domestic projects, CFs, pictorials and award news.th_pwettybunny.gif

 

Finally, thanks to our Admin @taprokh's diligent effort, the ELBH website which was down for awhile due to a technical glitch has finally been restored about 95%. We will now resume the compilation updates that have been put on hold recently. There're quite a few of the recent updates still yet to be compiled (particularly the APAN & Seoul Award news).. which will be up in due time. Our apology for these unforeseen circumstances.

 

In the meantime, some of the compilation that have been posted so far~

GIFs of LBH and BH Boss at the 25th Buil Film Awards 2 years ago, good to see the unchanging interaction of the same actor and his longtime manager. There's also Kim Tae Ri spotted sitting behind them.

Not sure where he is, in transit somewhere? 11/14 Byunghun posted two photos with another quote from MR.SUNSHINE, obviously. :lol:

 

Caption: The food that puts the ground meat in the bread.
