Bae Sung-woo leaps forward in 2015

At 43, Bae Sung-woo is no newbie to acting.

He says he’s always been working since he graduated from college at 29 -- but it wasn’t until this year that he made his mark with the general public. 

Bae was the face of a distraught office worker driven to murder in the Cannes-invited “Office.” He played Woo-jin, the man who wakes up with a different appearance every morning in “The Beauty Inside.” He was the leader of an illicit international car dealership in the runaway hit “Veteran.” On Oct. 22, he appeared in theaters in two movies opening simultaneously -- “The Phone” and “The Exclusive: Beat the Dragon Tattoo.”

And it was one of these movies that gave him his first major lead role: “The Phone,” a sci-fi crime thriller in which a man receives a phone call from his wife on the anniversary of her death. He realizes that she’s calling from a year ago in time and has just one day to keep the murder from happening.

Bae plays the killer Jae-hyeon, who is hunting a woman in 2014, and her husband in 2015. He said he wanted to make the character as believable as possible.

“A lot of killers are portrayed as psychopaths or all-powerful,” he told The Korea Herald, “but I approached this role of Do Jae-hyeon as being a sustenance killer. He’s a killer because he has to be to make ends meet, or maybe to make his life just a little bit richer.”

When asked if he was generally drawn to characters that were less archetypal and more believable, Bae noted that audiences found it easier to connect to those characters.

“People find absolute evil to be boring,” he said.

“All people have two sides to them. I like characters that don’t necessarily stir up empathy, but do allow some level of understanding about the reasons for their actions. Audiences get drawn into those characters, identify with them. There are some characters that you like to watch from far away, but I like characters that ask you to understand them.”

Despite Bae’s penchant for a level of complexity both in characters and genres -- he says he likes movies “without a particular genre” like “Moneyball” or “Foxcatcher” -- what he likes best about “The Phone” is its simplicity.

“You see a lot of genres being integrated in movies these days. A movie might be a thriller, but it’ll have comedy and drama. A comedy will have sad elements to it. I prefer something simpler that maximizes the appeal of a particular genre. ‘The Phone’ does have fantastical elements to it, but it maintains speed and continues pushing forward to its conclusion.”

After “The Phone” and “The Exclusive,” Bae is set to appear in the comedy “You Call it Passion” with Jung Jae-young and Park Bo-young, as well as the crime drama “Inside Men” with Lee Byung-hun and Cho Seung-woo. Bae acknowledged that his filmography was a bit all over the map, and said that he felt the need to begin creating his own dramatic color.

“I’ve had directors tell me that I should find more funny, loveable parts, and other directors tell me that I should play more characters that are stronger and more intense. I appreciate both sides. I’m thinking about alternating back and forth,” he joked. 

“But I think that in the end all of my characters need to have Bae Sung-woo at their base, and I should start making that base more concrete.

He added that 2015 was like a beat board. “Not a springboard. I’m afraid of jumping on springs that will take me too far in one direction,” he said. “It’s a beat board, which if I jump on carefully the right way, will give me the right push.”

“The Phone” opened in theaters on Oct. 22.

Actor Lee Byung-hun and Jo Seung-woo will meet viewers on the V app at 9 p.m. on Monday to talk about their upcoming, much-anticipated flick “Inside Men.”

“Hello, I am Jo Seung-woo, who is playing prosecutor Woo Jang-hoon in the film,” Jo said in a trailer video released on the app last week. “During the ‘Naver Movie Talk Live’ show on Monday, five great men -- director Woo Min-ho, webtoon artist Yoon Tae-ho, actor Lee Byung-hun, Baek Yoon-shik and I -- will appear on the program and meet with you to talk about the film.”

Crime flick “Inside Men” is based on the webtoon “The Insiders” by Yoon Tae-ho, who is behind popular webtoons “Misaeng” and “Moss.” The drama delves into deep-rooted corruption in Korean society through the influential figures of society, such as an editor of a conservative newspaper, a leading presidential candidate, political henchman and a prosecutor.

Actor Lee Byung-hun back in the spotlight

Veteran actor Lee Byung-hun will take part in promoting his upcoming film “Inside Men,” according to film industry insiders. 

Lee has been keeping a low profile since he was embroiled in a scandal in August last year. The scandal surfaced when Lee reported two women to the police after they threatened him. The women, both in their 20s, demanded 5 billion won ($4.4 million) from Lee, or they reportedly said they would release a video file of Lee using lewd language toward one of the women while he was drinking wine with them. 

The blackmail scandal came to an end with the accomplices sentenced to jail terms, though they were later out on bail. But Lee came under fire for flirting with the young women. 

After the scandal, Lee’s film, “Memories of the Sword,” was released, but the actor just participated in a press day event and didn’t take part in other promotional events because he was shooting a film in Hollywood. 

“Inside Men,” a crime drama, will hit theaters nationwide Nov. 19. 

Since his debut in 1991, Lee has built a solid career in film. Some of his hits include “Masquerade” (2012), “I Saw the Devil” (2010) and “The Good, The Bad, The Weird” (2008). 

The 45-year-old recently finished shooting two Hollywood films, “Beyond Deceit” and “The Magnificent Seven,” which are slated to open next year.
