Won Bin cheers on Song Hye-gyo
by | December 5, 2008 | 27 Comments

Won Bin — who’s kept a low profile in recent months (years, even) — surprised everyone by showing up to the set of The World They Live In to lend some moral support for his former co-star, Song Hye-gyo, and the staff of her current drama.

The series had been filming at one café in the Apgujung neighborhood of Seoul’s Kangnam district when Won Bin made a surprise appearance. As you may know, Won Bin and Song Hye-gyo had starred together in 2000 in the early Hallyu hit melodrama Autumn Fairy Tale, back when both were early in their careers. They’re currently represented by the same management company, and Won Bin is said to be good friends with the drama’s director, PD Kim Kyu-tae. One source said that Won Bin’s presence livened the atmosphere and encouraged them as they worked.

With a month left in the drama and the ratings down in the single digits (hovering around 5%), The World They Live In is at least being recognized for the quality of its writing and production, as well as Hyun Bin‘s acting growth.

    i wish won bin took a role in a drama or something. i miss seeing him on screen. btw, all of his recent photos look sad…

    i don’t know why but i don’t find song hye gyo’s acting that bad. she’s just okay, i rather see her character less likable.

    Won Bin: Yeah, the PD and I, we’re really good friends.
    Kim Kyu-tae: How about being in my next drama?
    Won Bin: Did I say friends? We’re more like acquaintances.
    Kim Kyu-tae: C’mon Won Bin. Song Hye Kyo and I are begging you to do one more show with us!
    Won Bin: Okay, I don’t know this man. Get away from me!
    Kim Kyu-tae: Hyun Bin, let me introduce you to Won Bin. Won Bin, say hello to Hyun Bin
    Won Bin: Hello *flashes smile*
    Hyun Bin: *faints*
    Song Hye Kyo: Oppa!!! *steps over unconscious Hyun Bin*
    Won Bin: Who the hell is this mushroom cap midg-, oh Song Hye Kyo haha didn’t recognize you!!

    mmmm I love the way Won Bin’s been looking sensitive and wistful lately. This is a great shot of him. He can’t help looking sexy even when he’s being serious.

  5. casey

    oooh oooh …. won bin’s hot! 😛

    Friendship is one of the highest forms of union and understanding between two individuals.
    Unless, a breath of wind does not extinguish the feeble flame, the guardian of a precious reciprocity that lasts a lifetime.

  7. Secret Sunshine

    That is so sweet of him to visit the set, the real Binkyo fighting!
    Belleza, sounds like a fun gathering. Is there a clip to watch what you shared above, thanks!

    Dramabeans, agree with your last statment: The World They Live In is at least being recognized for the quality of its writing and production, as well as Hyun Bin’s acting growth.

    I really wish Won Bin would step back into dramas. I miss him.

    @belleza …lol…funny..

  9. mzpakipot

    okay, i love WonBin all the way and so sweet of him to visit the set of WW..but yeah, LOL at belleza..awesome!

    what ever public like that or not.

    i love the serie.

  11. 11 mookie

    lol Belleza, these binnies do know each other fr their Cyon days, maybe WB was there to visit HB, Eun Suh did break his heart. 😉

    Actually I read JDG was there too, but his visit was not as ‘official’ as WB’s. (maybe it’s just some fantasy of the JDG/HB shipper LOL)
    both of them should do a cameo in HB/SHK’s drama in drama in WW that should do sth to the ratings.

    Can Won Bin and Song get together and make beautiful babies?

    Just something about a pair of gorgeous people….haha.

    Thank you for the report. Glad to know Won Bin visiting the shooting set to show support, so nice and sweet of him.

    hye kyo is so special to get a visit from won bin, inspite of his busy schedule. he is such a shy person keeping low key for years , there4 quite unusual to make a visitation unless she means something to him.
    both makes a lovely & compatible couple and arent they looking for a life partner as per their recent interviews? what are they waiting for, look nowhere!
    hahaha maybe they are already an item cos they were seen in public attending the VIP premiere in Jan 08 and yet again in the same company in June 08 now another appearance in public in Dec 08. soon they will go public abt their relationship – ha, wild dreams brewing up & hopes it becomes a reality!!

    Jackywu, also their birthday is on the same month as well!

  16. 16 ;)

    is there any NGs on the “world they live in” scenes? trying to find in youtube but cant find any?

    maybe Kim Su Ah should visit and have a cameo as well – as one of the actress of the TV station? – ha

    Why did hyun bin faint when won bin flashed a smile at him? 🙂

  18. 18 belleza

    “Why did hyun bin faint when won bin flashed a smile at him?”

    When Won Bin smiles, a child is born. You can say his twinkle is the Immaculate Conception. For this reason, he is also prohibited from doing Korean dramas. This has made him feel very sad, as you can see from recent pictures.

    “these binnies do know each other fr their Cyon days, maybe WB was there to visit HB, Eun Suh did break his heart.”

    And because Eun Suh forsook Won Bin even after he flashed the Immaculate Conception, she was given the Korean Nosebleed of Death. The Divine works in mysterious ways yo! 😀

    I’m sure, after this visit, there’s a hidden video of the WonderBins (with a rap by Jang Dong Gun ) dedicating Nobody to Song Hye Kyo somewhere. *visualizing WonByunGun in silvery minis* Okay, I’m pregnant now.

    I believe the sight of Won Bin’s fantastic ab muscles also have the same fertility-enhancing effect, don’t you think?

    “I believe the sight of Won Bin’s fantastic ab muscles also have the same fertility-enhancing effect, don’t you think?”

    Oh, you mean the Son, the Father, and the Holy Ghost? Yeah, Won Bin’s abs only come out on Sunday.

    lol…oh belleza, you are too funny!

    Hi, Javabeans
    Your fan’s comments are pretty amusing, I like reading them. Theirs could reduce my pressure from work at times, thank you and I like the way they tease one another as well.
    About Won Bin, I think he’s done a good job again. Playing a sympathetic role to anyone who’s going to be unhappy is a must. Human beings need to be encouraged in the mean time. I’d like to send my regards to Won Bin’s parents either.
    Thank you Javabeans…..have a nice day.

  23. 23 Bingbing

    When oh! when will I see him on TV again ? Its been a long time.

  24. 24 sendi
