The Curious Case Of Won Bin — Korea’s Most Famous Actor Despite Not Acting The Past 10 Years

 

How is he still so popular after 10 years of not acting?

 

Won Bin is one of Korea’s most recognized actors, yet his popularity is honestly perplexing for many new to the Korean entertainment scene. How did he get so popular? Why hasn’t he been acting? These are just some of the questions fans have had since getting to know about him.

 

Won Bin debuted in 1997 with a small role in the movie, Propose. He continued to take smaller roles until 2000, when he made his breakthrough to the Korean public in Kkokji and Autumn in my HeartAutumn in my Heart in particular shot him to stardom, not only in Korea, but throughout Asia. Won Bin would ride this popularity with roles in the drama Friends, plus lead roles in highly popular films Taegukgi and My Brother.

 

Then came a 5 year hiatus, where during that time, he served his mandatory military service. Following his military service and a few more years of not acting, he joined the cast of Bong Joon Ho‘s movie Mother, and followed that up with his most notable work that Korean entertainment fans will recognize: The Man from Nowhere.

 

The Man from Nowhere was released in 2010. That was 10 years ago. Since then, Won Bin has had ZERO acting projects, and yet remains one of Korea’s most beloved actors. So why hasn’t he acted since then? The answer is a combination of his extreme pickiness in selecting works, and some bad luck.

 

Won Bin got married to Lee Na Young in 2015, and following his marriage and birth of his first child, he was looking to get back into the acting industry. In 2016, he was offered the lead role in the Korean remake version of Umberto Pasolini‘s film Still Life. However, due to differences between the director and Won Bin, he ultimately refused the role.

 

That same year, The Man from Nowhere was in discussions for a Hollywood remake, and Won Bin was a part of those discussions. He tried to make his comeback through the remake, but poor coordination between the production team and Won Bin’s side caused the appearance to fall through. Director Lee Chang Dong, who produced Burning, was also in discussions to join the production team.

Just recently, Won Bin was in discussions to make his return through a drama instead. He was considering a role in ₩40 billion KRW blockbuster drama The Immortal. Directed by Mr. Sunshine PD Jang Young Woo, the 16 episode drama features a woman who remembers her past life after continuously dying and being reincarnated for 600 years, and a man who is immortal for 600 years. He ended up rejecting this drama as he felt like he was too burdened with returning to the industry through a drama, even though the script and screenplay was excellent.

 

Through this whole time, Won Bin has only been participating in CF’s, and was most recently spotted filming for another one in May of this year. Part of what makes Won Bin attractive to Koreans are his extremely handsome visuals, but only time will tell when Won Bin makes his long-awaited return to the screen, whether it be the small screen or movie, to show them again.

Can't wait for Won Bin to return to drama, it's way long overdue!  Love his acting & chubby look in Autumn In My Heart.

*** Won Bin turns down major drama and movie..... IDK why he keeps on turning down offers. Is he scared of how long his hiatus has been? Doesn't he love acting anymore? Is he satisfied with his life doing CFs only? We all work to live but, well, I'm sure he has the financial means to do so, anyway. So, he doesn't have to worry about money at all. I heard that he also has a real estate business. Won Bin has always been known for his reserved and quiet personality. I'm hoping to see him act again though. Jun Ji Hyun had many years on hiatus, too from TV, but people didn't forget her. I know people might think that it's such a waste of his face and talent, but he is a normal human who can make his own life decision. I think if acting was his passion, he could have made a comeback any time he wanted.He’s turned down basically every big budget projects offered to him for the past 10 years. ^_^

cfc2cbdf953a4e7b801bd7e49f8ff88d.jpeg?s=

 

The team behind the wildly successful “John Wick” film franchise is reuniting for a Hollywood remake of “The Man from Nowhere”!

According to a new report by Deadline, Chad Stahelski and Derek Kolstad—who directed and wrote all three “John Wick” films respectively—will be teaming up again for the upcoming U.S. remake of the 2010 smash hit “The Man from Nowhere.”

Derek Kolstad will be penning the script for the remake, while Chad Stahelski is said to be producing the upcoming film together with Jason Spitz through their production banner 87Eleven Entertainment. Deadline reports that “insiders say the execs are very high on the script that Kolstad just delivered and plan on meeting with directors for the job, as Stahelski is not expected to direct.”

A dark, gritty action film that went on to become the highest-grossing movie in South Korea in 2010, “The Man from Nowhere” starred Won Bin as a mysterious man who takes on a trafficking ring to save the young child that is his only friend (played by Kim Sae Ron). In spite of its 18+ rating, the iconic film managed to draw over 6.17 million moviegoers to theaters.

Are you excited to see “The Man from Nowhere” be remade into a Hollywood film? Share your thoughts with us in the comments, and check out the original Korean movie starring Won Bin below!

These two got involved in dating rumors when Celebrity X-Files claimed that the two were in a romantic relationship. This would have been big news at the time, as Sooyoung was already dating Jung Kyung Ho.

 

Their respective agencies quickly released statements and stated that the rumors were false and that the two had never even met each other!

The 25 best Korean movies of the 21st century

 

When Parasite won best picture at the Academy Awards earlier this year, it capped an incredible two-decade surge for South Korean cinema, as the country ascended from minor regional player to global entertainment powerhouse.

 

But while the Korean Wave may have been launched by star-driven melodramas and revenge thrillers, recent years have seen the emergence of independent voices with a strong social conscience.

 

As with our recent selection of Japanese films , this list is limited to a single entry per filmmaker, as we celebrate the best of South Korean cinema from the 21st century thus far.

 

Here are our 25 picks, listed below in chronological order:

 

 

14. The Man from Nowhere (dir. Lee Jeong-beom, 2010)

 

In this relentlessly stylish riff on Leon: The Professional, a criminally good-looking Won Bin plays a former special forces agent turned mild-mannered pawnshop proprietor, who must revert to his old, ultra-violent ways after the little girl next door (Kim Sae-won) is abducted by ruthless gangsters.

4. The Man From Nowhere (2010)

Before John Wick, there was Cha Tae Sik (Won Bin). Tae Sik is the low-key owner of a small pawnshopwith one heck of a dangerous and mysterious past. He becomes entangled in the crimes of a syndicate, leading him to go on a bloody epic hunt while evading the police to save the one person that means anything to him: his only friend, So Mi (Kim Sae Ron), the young daughter of a go-go dancer.
