Thanks Barbara for the photos from Byunghun's IG. Looks like BH & family are taking a nice summer break together. They could be back in California/LA, to renovate their home there.. probably not Jeju since he stated about traveling. Perhaps Spain.. since MJ went there before or maybe going back to Maldives for the anniversary.  :blush: Must say, this update (from BH on IG) is pretty personal yet cool highlighting his Inside Men persona spot-on.. could be a prelude to the much-awaited The Man Standing Next.

 

From INSIDE MEN thread..

 

the highly popular phrase mentioned in the JTBC travel show 'Traveler

Fans on twitter are also guessing where Byunghun is right now? :lol:

 

I had an the same thought seeing the distinct white structure (after watching GOF in Greece few years back ^_^).. so.. maybe Byunghun is holidaying in Santorini, Greece?

But then.. the earlier photos with the trees and flowers.. could be somewhere else. dontknow.gif As long as BH and his family are enjoying their time together.

From an article by Kyodo News, posting here the related LBH excerpt only


Residents of Japanese islet hit books to impress S. Korean visitors

 

It turns out that Aragane studied Korean for two years from 2009 at a training center at the National Police Academy in Tokyo. He wanted to master the language and make it his forte.

 

While many of his classmates were in their 20s, Aragane was 32 at the time.

"There were tough times because there was a difference in how quickly we were able to pick up (the new language)," Aragane said. But he studied hard, telling himself he could not give up as the training was funded by taxpayers, and successfully graduated.

 

After returning to Oita Prefectural Police, Aragane utilized his language skills, such as translating documents and explaining driving rules in Korean.

 

He also studied the history and culture of South Korea to acquire more background knowledge and context to the language. Now his favorite actor is Korean star Lee Byung Hun.

 

On Onyu Island, the first Korean class held in late June was a success, with residents praising Aragane's affable approach to teaching.

CEO Son Seok Woo & BH Entertainment's Enterprising Network

A previous article, recently translated by @mistymorning. Please refer the relationship diagram as it explains BH Entertainment and the CEO quite precisely. As we know, BH Entertainment was started  by Son Seok Woo (manager since 2001) & Lee Byung Hun as a one-person agency in 2006 and after 13 years, it has grown and expanded through affiliation with prospective actors plus various contracts with overseas agents. BH Entertainment strives as a company that supports global activities, as its actors are active in domestic and overseas markets including actors of foreign nationalities.

note1.gif As of 2019, BH Entertainment website link now leads to a new page (under Kakao M) with a new logo, showing the artistes under the agency with their names in Hangul and English. The photo sequence changes every time in random order but there are 21 artistes featured, at the time of update. We can now be sure who's who under BH Entertainment.

In addition, BH Entertainment has considered 'human' and 'personality' as the best value for the last time it has built up the company. 
  • In everyday life where everyone struggles in their place, there are 'people' of BH Entertainment who spend the most time. I would like to share the joy and happiness with the beautiful texture of people who have the same beauty.

An interview with Lee Byung Hun after he received the Best TV Actor Baeksang

Arts Awards. (A translation) 

 

https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/I1TUduykV?fid=1034:4404532055318132

 

 

 

190501_55b_51.jpeg

 

MC: Lee Byung Hun  Welcome.  Hello,   I would like to congratulate you sincerely on winning the award.  As I was inside here, I could not hear your thank you speech but only see your expression.  Judging from your expression, I can imagine how wonderful your speech must have been!  Did you leave out anything?

 

LBH:  In order not to miss anything, I really did my best.  Usually, when I attend awards ceremony, there is really a lot to say.  But sometime, I am nervous and there is no room for it.  The ceremony needs to continue and it is impossible to say a lot.  This time, I thought I should not say too much.

 

MC:   We won't limit you. There are no restrictions on the length of your speech.  If you left out something, please face the camera on your left, we will give you plenty of time to complete your speech.

 

LBH:  Really.  The speech that I just delivered  must have been the longest speech that I have made in my life.

 

MC:  OH!  Really.

 

LBH:  I  really said a lot. Although I have already said it, I could not  devise a specific method to name everyone.  From the beginning of the pre-production of this TV series, all the actors and crews have experienced together the coldest winter and the hottest summer.   Although it was very hot and very cold, no one complained and showed dissatisfaction during this long filming process.   People have achieved good results at work.  If the work is interesting, the shooting process will also be very pleasant.  Here, I want to say thank you again to the staff.

 

MC:  I feel that the corners of Lee Byung Hun’s eyes are a little moist. Now, Let us look at your amazing winning records at Baeksang Arts Awards.  In the 42nd Awards, you won the Best Movie Actor Award. In the 47th Awards, you won the Daesang in the Movie Section. In the 51st Awards, you won the Best Movie  Actor Award.  This year, for the 55th Awards, you won the Best TV actor Award.  You are a four time* winner, how do you feel now?

 

[* Correction.  Records indicated that LBH also won Best TV Actor Awards in the 32th and 39th Baeksang Arts Awards.]

 

LBH:  Just now when I won the Award, I already mentioned that “Mr. Sunshine” got a warm response after the broadcast.  But this has been awhile and I wondered if this impression left with the audience is still there.  Furthermore, many new TV Dramas came out and there were many actors with good acting skills.  Therefore, I had no great expectations of winning the award because of the abundant excellent works and actors.  I came with a relaxed mood.   Winning again, I felt rather sorry for the Hoobaes.  On the other hand, I felt winning this time is all the more precious.

 

MC:  There is no denial that the title “Unforgettable actor ” belongs to Lee Byung Hun.  Just now when he was on the red carpet with crowds cheering, you have not have heard what I said.  I said as long as he appears on the TV or the movie screen, I can hear people holding their breathes and stay focused on Lee Byung Hun’s acting.  Therefore, winning today’s awards is by no means accidential.

 

LBH:   Thank you.

 

MC:  What are your future plans?   Please talk to us briefly about them.  Today’s interview ends here.

 

LBH:  After "Mr. Sunshine", I made two two movies.  One is “The Man Standing Next” for which filming has wrapped up.  The other which is being filmed is  “Baekdusan”.  Although it is not quite sure,  I feel that you can see both works this year.

 

MC:  Can later see the handsome face of Lee Byung Hun through the screen,  I would like to congratulate you sincerely once again on receiving the award.  We would like to take the winning photo as the end.  Please stand here and we will take a handsome photo for you.

@peonie Thanks Barbara for the highlight of Byunghun's new IG post. If I'm not mistaken.. as I've seen the set of dolls posted on a Korean fan IG quite awhile back. Not sure if it's a line of official merchandise finally revealed (Rubeurs might know?) but it's probably a customized gift by the fan for BH. If it's indeed the latter, Byunghun must be so happy and impressed with the dolls that he highlighted them on his IG.

 

Looking at the sizes, Captain Eugene Choi is the most favorite character :w00t: followed by Gwanghae, then Park Chang Yi, Storm Shadow, Ahn Sang Goo and last but not least.. little Presiden Jin of Master. :lol: Have to say, I kinda agree with the arrangement although we're also missing his well-known characters Kim Sun Woo (BSL) and Kim Soo Hyun (ISTD).

Long time no see! BH's new project news is just out! This time it is with SGH, with director Han Jaerim. Bear with me for strange translation because i'm too excited!

 

https://news.sbs.co.kr/news/endPage.do?news_id=N1005414941

 

Song Gang-Ho x Lee Byung-hun 4th movies together, with director Han Jae-Rim.

 

30000633446_1280.jpg

 

Actor Song Gang-Ho and Lee Byung-Hun will meet again in the new film from director Han Jae-Rim, titled 'Emergency Declaration' (Production: WooJoo Film, Co-Production: C-Jes Entertainment, CineJoo).

 

'Emergency Declaration' is air traffic term when during a flight, pilot encounters a distress condition which makes it impossible to fly anymore, declares emergency and let land control knows the plane needs to land immediately. This movie will be an air disaster drama , with high tension and colorful characters.

 

Director Han Jae-Rim debuted his first movie 'Rules of Dating' won  2005 Dae-Jong Award for new director and Blue Dragon Award for script, became hot star director in Korean Film.

 

His next movie 'The Show Must Go On'(2007), a noir film won another Blue Dragon Award for the best movie, and with the film 'The Face Reader' showed his satire and sensual directing skills. Film 'The King' made people to call him 'The best story teller', with various filming methods and cheerful stories with deeper meanings. 

.... skipping.. 

 

This meeting of Song Gangho, The most trust-worthy(to watch) actor in Korea, after the movie 'Parasite' which won Palme d'Or in Cannes Film Festivaland 4th 10M movies, and Lee ByungHun, certified best actor, with Hollywood movies and loved for best actings in both films and TVs raises our expectation to the new level.

 

This is 4th project they work together after 'Joint Security Area'(2000), 'The good, the bad and the wierd'(2008), 'The age of shadows'(2016). Fresh material and trust for director Han Jae-Rim made this possible.

 

The movie is scheduled for pre-production this year and will crank-in early next year.

@mistymorning, thank you so much for the news highlight & translation. Finally, after a long wait.. a new project.. a third movie (yet) to be screened. ^_^ But it's all good, all good of course. Once the movies are released, then we'll have a galore of LBH movies one after another. :w00t: 

 

On the other hand, glad to know that Byunghun will not be in the Snake Eyes movie since the production is opting for much younger actors to be in the lead. While it can be argued that Storm Shadow may likely have a bigger presence in the upcoming movie, being Snake Eyes' arch nemesis but it's really a better alternative/way out for LBH. He will always be the original Storm Shadow of the GI Joe live-action movie series and he already delivered his best & nailed it. Time for him to move on as well. 

 

Looking at the trend, Korean movie pairings these days are going for stars reunion working together again with a new director while the current plot lines tend  to feat. disaster/intense/emergency situation which unfortunately are no longer fiction but based on real-happenings in the world.

 

Still hoping for BH to return to drama (when a good script beckons and situation allows) and still wishing him to reunite with former co-stars, which is also the trend in the drama world these days.
