Hyun Bin 현빈

Recommended Posts

Here’s a visual display of the dcinside polls on action actors that I talked about in my earlier post.

You can see that uri Action Actor is way up there. He has been a boxer (in Snow Queen and Friends Our Legend), a Taekwondo Master and Bodyguard (in Ireland) and a soldier in Confidential Assignment. I really love seeing him in action projects. Till to date, my favorite character of his is Dong Soo. I just want to give lots of love to Dong Soo who still causes my heart to ache whenever I think of him. Hyun Bin really works very hard to deliver his characters to us. He typically trains for months before the project, often training till he hurt himself - for example the Taekwondo training for Ireland : he trained till he fractured his toe. And for The Fatal Encounter he survived on 3-4 hours of sleep a day for months as he devoted the rest of the day to training his body in order to give us those awesome “angry muscles” that we saw. 
 

I give give here Im Cheolryung in celebration of Action Actor Hyun Bin! :wub:

@randomlee i agree about Dong Soo! He is the kind of character that makes us love him coz we have seen all his disappointments in life plus all the betrayals he had experienced from his mom, his friend, and the woman he loves.

Hyun Bin really owns each character that he portrays. And i also really loved friend our legend. Such a beautifully made drama with well executed scenes, especially the scene where dong soo was stabbed and you can see the fishes dying on the road... And then later dong soo fighting for his life... That scene always made me cry everytime i watch it. 

Too bad that drama was underrated. It has such a nice story

@randomlee yes Hyun Bin never ceases to amaze us! He always works hard to give us his best performance for every project. He doesn't give us mediocre portrayals. I love how he is such a perfectionist, always going into every little detail about his character :wub:

Hi Fangirlingislife NICE to know that you loved the drama, "Friend, Our Legend" - I loved it, too! This drama is filmed in Busan. FOUR FRIENDS....This makes me think of the Boys over Flowers. I have not seen the original movie Friend (2001) on which this drama is based on. But, I find this drama good. :P

@peggygordon Thank you for sharing. I just went to naver to check. Five hours later, DrForHair and Hyun Bin’s name are still trending at no. 5 haha

A spokesperson said DrForHair has been selling extremely well, not just within Korea. They are getting a lot of orders from overseas as well. Saw many comments that go something like, “oh if Hyun Bin is the endorser I must buy this”; “Oh Hyun Bin is the endorser? Then I must definitely change my shampoo to this!” It’s so funny haha.. I have alr bought three big bottles and am changing to this once I finish my existing shampoo haha.

@Fangirlingislife @willenette Friend Our Legend and I Am Happy (I watched this only recently) are the only projects of his that I have watched only twice over. I have watched all of his other projects more than twice, some like Secret Garden, countless times haha. The reason is because these two make my heart ache so badly, especially Friend Our Legend. For Friend Our Legend my heart breaks not just for his character Dong Soo but also for Hyun Bin when I think about the effort he put in for the drama and the fact that he must have felt down during the drama’s airing because the ratings were so low. I think this could have been one of the lowest points in his acting career- with two consecutive dramas (Worlds Within Us before that) doing so poorly. So yes, whenever I am asked which project and character of his are my favorites, I will always say it’s Friend Our Legend and Dong Soo coz this drama and Dong Soo make my heart ache really badly.

Hi randomlee, thanks for sharing this. So sad that it seems this brand isn't available here in my side. Anyway, I don't need this since I don't have falling hair. But, I'm curious about this product, though. I wonder if HB is using this. I remember in 2014, China introduces a new law that makes it a requirement that celebrities actually use their products. This was after a string of ads in which the celebrities appearing in marketing campaigns obviously did not use the products they were peddling. (Celebrity doesn't use the product they endorse.) When you see your bias as the new face of a product/brand, would you buy their product immediately? ... Most fans do - These celebrities have fans of all ages, which may benefit brands. When a celebrity is paired with a brand, the image helps shape the image of that brand in the minds of consumers. Celebrities promoting products and services have become a lucrative way to build brand awareness and credibility... :P

I don’t know if South Korea has similar laws like the ones in China that you mentioned. I do know however that Hyun Bin himself has said (at the Watson’s event) that he has been using the Mediheal products for his skin. As for DrForHair, it’s not for people with falling hair problems only haha..I read that the products are made of natural botanical ingredients meant to strengthen hair and provide good scalp treatment. I don’t have a falling hair problem myself haha..and I doubt Hyun Bin has a falling hair problem too since his hair has been described as silky and so good that even women would be envious of haha..Even if there are laws that state that celebrities must use the products they endorse, I think enforcing such laws will be difficult because for some products such as skincare and hair products, how do you know if the celebrities themselves are using them or not? For clothing and accessories brands, it is not practical to expect the celebrities to wear only the brands they endorse. So yes, I think that even if they have such laws, I don’t expect them to strictly enforce.

Hyunbin in the first teaser of Crash Landing on You (looks like the English title has been changed to this) and still cuts released.

This is a rather interesting analysis of the teaser for those of you who are not following the drama thread.

Oh, by the way, it looks like he wasn’t selected for that 10th Anniversary Ministerial Award.

At yesterday’s Channel A’s program ‘I heard it from the grapevine’, the reporters talked about Hyun Bin’s receipt of the commendation award from the President in 2013 at the 50th Savings Day at a commemorative ceremony held in the Sejong Hall of the Sejong Cultural Center in Seoul, for having saved 35 billion won within 17 years. As the program only featured the reporters talking about Hyun Bin receiving the award and their guesses as to how much he had saved to win that award, I won’t bother to hunt down YouTube for a copy of that clip to share over here (the program featured other stuffs as well and Hyun Bin’s portion is a short segment only). Incidentally, yesterday (28 October) was Korea’s Savings Day.

 

You might be wondering what’s the big deal about this that an award is given, no less by the President and that it has to be talked about again in a talk show. Doesn’t it just show how rich he is? Here’s my take on why it is a big deal and no, it’s not about how rich he is haha..

 

First, this goes to show how open and honest he has been regarding his income. It’s honesty because it shows he’s been paying his taxes and dues without hiding anything. Korea has this Savings campaign to encourage its citizens to save money and contribute towards the liquidity of their economy. So this campaign is one that is seen as helping the Korean economy. Having your savings in cash in Korean bank accounts (and not have your money siphoned off to untraceable places) means that you are totally transparent and are liable to pay tax for all your income. So yes, this is laudable coz it shows his honesty and transparency when it comes to his earnings. Among Hallyu stars, he’s the only one who has been honored/acknowledged in this way if I am not wrong. 

 

Second, this is testament to how frugal he has been. Despite being a celebrity, he is not into an extravagant lifestyle. At the time that he was selected, a representative from the Financial Commission said, "Hyun Bin is chosen based on his qualities of natural simplicity, diligence and thrift, and he has saved most of his income following a careful savings planning. He has developed a habit of saving." He also added, “Last year he donated generously towards charitable projects to help starving children. He has been donating towards a series of other public welfare activities in an expression of his love for society."

 

Here are two pics from the 2013 ceremony. Pic taken from weibo and as credited in watermark.

Hyun Bin is really good in delivering comedic acting. Looking at his facial expression at the scene when YSR fell on him and his “up-in-the-air” frozen arms has not failed to make me smile despite having watched the clip umpteenth times :D

 

Really hoping that Crash Landing will do extremely well, just like Kim Sam Soon and Secret Garden.

I really love seeing HB's pictures :wub: I can't even pick one to be my favorite as he looks good in all of them. And my, how manly he looks in his military uniform. In those stills, his eyes speak volumes with just a glance.

 

As for Channel A's reporters recalling HB's commendation award even after all these years, this just goes to show how HB has maintained his good standing and reputation even in the reporters' eyes who are naturally expected to have inside knowledge of the actual goings-on of the celebrities' lives. Makes me really proud as his fan.
