Won Bin’s next move: to Chungmuro or Hollywood?

Last year was definitely Won Bin‘s year: tops at the box office, aces on the red carpet, and well, he’s Won Bin. ‘Nuff said. So it comes as no surprise that he’s got his pick of new projects for the coming year, from dramas to movies…and he might soon be adding a Hollywood film to that list.

He’s reportedly being courted by agencies stateside, which isn’t surprising given how popular Ajusshi / The Man From Nowhere has been in the last year in screenings worldwide. Is it possible that he’ll be the next actor to attempt the very elusive crossover star-making turn in Hollywood?

At the same time, there’s speculation that he might sign on to star in the next film by director Jang Jin (The Recipe, Quiz King, Good Morning President), a Korean-Japanese co-production called Asian Beauty. The director has publicly been wooing Won Bin as his one and only choice for the leading role.

Is it too much to ask for him to return to dramaland instead of sailing away to either filmlandia? I know he’s probably going to be making films for a good long while (as well he should, of course), but I’m just greedy like that.

Yeah, I would love to see him in new drama, too. The last time I saw him in drama is in 'Friends' with Kyoko Fukada and Lee Dong-gun, which also the last drama he played. And that was 2002.

No offense.
Dude, this man has reputation... a very GOOD one. So, i think it's kind of high expectation waiting for him out there.
Honestly, I'll be absolutely disappointed if he pick drama that can't bring him Daesang Award :)

??? I'm trying to pretend that you're joking and being sarcastic, but I have a feeling you're being serious. Truthfully, even I didn't know about him until after watching Ajusshi. Everyone kept talking about him left and right on Dramabeans and I was like "Who?". But now.... Beanies UNITE! We must convert this young one to be just as mindlessly in love with Won Bin. *evil grin*

haha, aww you, 2-yr newb, you...don't be in denial ;)

Considering the number of K-dramas and films out there, recent, classic and airing...2 years addiction gives an estimate of about 2 handfuls of dramas, approximately. So yeah, definitely "newbie" status. But not to worry, in a few years you'll be up in over your head in k-drama addiction, haha.

Won Bin is the second male lead in Autumn Tale (along with Song Seung Heun, Song Hye Kyo and the then super-young Moon Guen Young)...I'd say that drama along with the film of 'My Sassy Girl' marked the start of K-drama popularity.

Wait, does that make me over the 10-year inch mark of watching k-dramas? Daaaang.

You challenged me so I checked and got 26 dramas that I watched till the end (I didn't finish a lot like Triple, Smile You, My GF is a Gumiho, Athena, Swollow the sun or One fine day of whatever rasons halfway through it)

So 26 - I'm pretty proud of myself, even if its hilarious compared with 10 years. I'm also a big KMovie fan so...

well at least i tried ;)

In the Phils, Endless Love-Autumn Fairy Tale is the start of the Drama Craze =). It's the first time i rooted for the second lead to get the girl. After seeing him in that kdrama, i can't get enough of him, so i watch his very first, PROPOSE and learned he's very good in English (he's got glorious hair). Then watched the movies Guns & Talk and Taegugki --- i totally got hooked after those, totally!!!

Somebody got to fix this addiction please, kdrama for Won Bin!!!!

And can we change Beanies to (s)Wonnies so people will not get confused with the Binnies? just suggestin'

From the few drama he ever played, I only watched him in Autumn Tale, Ad Maniac, and Friends. Each character he played in those drama are different one from the other. For movies, I haven't seen Ajusshi, but you should try Taegugki. He's one of the best actor in his generation.

Maybe it's just this picture, sorta eh.

Won Bin is definitely no Keanu Reeves. For starters, Won Bin's eyes are a gazillion times better at expressing emotion. Personally, Keanu gives me a sort of geeky and sometimes awkward vibe whereas Won Bin is much smoother.

Plus, check out some of Won Bin's T.O.P. coffee CFs with Shin Min-ah on youtube....the man can kiss.

Same here, I've been watching k-dramas for about 3 years now and I've heard of him, but I guess by the time I 'joined' the k-drama community, nothing new of his was out. Except for movies, but I prefer watching dramas. So I didn't really see him in the news or anything

I have looked him up on DramaWiki and didn't really find anything too amazing there...so I've heard of him (vaguely) but don't quite get the craze.

But thanks for the drama recommendations, will check 'em out.

I pity all of you for not knowing the mightiness of Won Bin.

see if you can handle this Won Bin's hotness and charisma.

You can't really get into a lot of his other things because you can only play the misunderstood cold type before your fans gets tired (and the ratings don't lie when they say the fans in Japan aren't tired of Kimura yet). He did deviate when he did MR. BRAIN, and I've heard some good things about that show. I've seen a couple of episodes too and it wasn't that bad, I just couldn't stomach Ayase Haruka. She always seemed blank to me, although she pulled off Hotaru no Hikaru really well (either it was her best or maybe I was too busy drooling over Osamu Mukai and Fujiki Naohito to notice). It doesn't help that I know Ayase is a dits in real life. XD

But yes, I've been a fan of some of Johnny's Boys for a while now (I was Jun baited through Hanadan) and although strict youtube copyrights have made it hard for me to find new things from my favorite J-Boys, I try to keep up-to-date every once in a while through livejournal and whatnot.

He's such a rare diamond, I doubt commercial dramas are looking for a serious actor. They just want his name.

And though it's too much to ask that he be in a drama again (a romantic one would be a chunk of heaven) as long as he DOES act (and not stay in hiding for five years at a time) I'll be beyond thrilled.

*Sigh* By far (by far by far) my favorite actor.

I don't really like Korean movies. Of the ones I've seen, they always leave something to be desired. I don't know if it's just because I'm used to Hollywood movies, but Korean movies feel like their stories aren't being told as well and as such I feel a plateau in the middle of the movie and no climax. I think the one movie that came closest to westernized story telling was 100 Pounds of Beauty, but even then I'd give that movie a B+. That's why I'm always a little baffled to see some really big name Korean stars devote their careers to movies once they've made it when I feel like dramas are a much better use of their talents. So I would definitely prefer it if Won Bin went back to dramaland, but that's just me and my tastes. Ah well, best of luck to him =T

@theedie.
I am sorry to disagree with you!!!!!!!!

I will not put you down for what you have said, but the fact is this;

Asian movies, specially Korean ones have been hail as some of the most influentials world wide in the last 15 years. There have been scores of Asian and Korean movies that they have had a remake in Hollywood, to the detriment of the originals.

I have stop watching Hollywood movies, for the most part, but I can say that Koreans movies have become equal if not better than what Hollywood is doing right now,

Last but not the least, I do not know your "Ethnic Background" but having a bit of "knowledge" about Asian, and Korean philosophy of life may help you understand better where are they coming from, but maybe Korean Films are not your cup of tea, but that does not mean that Korean movies are of a substandard quality, in writing or cinematography!!!!! : O }

Yeah, have to agree with Amg1 on that. Korean TV often gets bashed for its formulaic plots and endless triangles. Korean music often gets bashed for idols and ripping off American music. HOWEVER, Korean film currently has big critical darling status in the world.

A lot of Korean film resembles how Hollywood movies were made in the 70s. Very situational, very character driven, and the narratives are more discursive. There's also likeness to French New Wave, in the focus on the absurd and bizarre, which is completely different than the soap opera-driven style of Korean TV.

Well, here's the thing. I'm not dismissing the merits of Korean movies. Some of them can be very powerful and Asian movies in general do have very good themes and stories that cannot be found anywhere else. The problem that I have in watching most of them is that the execution is not always there and I'm left feeling a little dissatisfied. Let me make it clear that I'm not saying Korean/Asian films are horrible, far from that. I just feel that with these films, I'm only getting at most 90% of their potential. Just because Korean/Asian films are very influential and stir inspiration in other film makers, this doesn't necessarily mean that these films are the best either. And I'm not saying all Hollywood movies are flawless either, but there's something to the way movies are presented in the States that makes these feel more developed. Yes, there are some very terrible films from Hollywood, but on average I say I get a better experience from them.

As for my ethnic background, I'm Vietnamese and am well versed in Asian cultures and have spent time in Korea. Again, I'm only commenting on storytelling ability in the Korean films I've watched. I'm sure there are some excellent films through and through from Korea though I have yet to see one (I have a couple that come really, really close though). Cinematography and all that are not really part of this conversation either btw.

Oh for me, Korean movies are the best. Sometimes, after watching a certain movie, i'll say to myself "only the KOREANS would be able to think or come-up with this kind of story" that's why some are being re-made. One movie that really shook me up is "THE SCARLET LETTER". Yes, sometimes they kept you hanging, but those hanging storyline gave way to more questions that leads to really intelligently thinking it over more. Making the movie stuck in your mind.

Wow, now i'm missing LEE EUN JOO =(. Her movies are all great, i think =)

I wouldn't say one is better than the other. I feel as if both industries have delivered their fair share of good films as well as shitty ones. They are their own entities and trying to compare them is like trying to compare Apples and Bananas. Maybe if they were two different types of Apples sure . . . I just feel that giving up on Hollywood is just as sad as people never giving Korean Films (or international films in general) a try. Maybe I say this because I love watching movies, but there is merit in finding that gem in Hollywood, underrated it may be.

100 Pounds of Beauty
The King and the Clown

Innocent Steps
Welcome to Dongmakgol
My Sassy Girl
High School Girl Got Married
100 Days with Mr. Arrogance

theedie, I'm here for you! I can definitely agree with your sentiments, at least partly. I initially LOVED the atmosphere of Korean films and saw (and loved, and still love) several of those you listed. But once the newness wore off I started noticing something about "typical" Korean filmmaking that, like you said, is not bad or amateurish at all but can leave something to be desired. I'm not knowledgeable about the evolution of the Korean film industry versus others, but there is something different that makes them, to me, simultaneously superior to other films and lacking in something that makes all the best films "important". I'm still charmed by them though. Also I can't stand Hollywood films of any era.

I happen to be a huge fan of Korean and Japanese movies, and not so much of Hollywood, but for the noobs and young 'uns around here - here's a quick cruise around from an old obasan.

Most countries have a movie making style that is their own - or are developing their own. Korea has several directors with a unique style and an industry that tends towards genres that do well in country. Technically, Korean films tend to really excel at cinematography and scoring. I happen to be a huge fan of Korean action movies. Stylistically, those tend to be spare, dark and very violent. Ajusshi is actually a fairly classic example of the style.

As it happens, Won Bin has been in 5 movies - 3 of which are outstanding in different ways - Taegukgi, Mother and Ajusshi - and all of which have been box office successes in Korea. I believe Taegukgi is still in the top 10 box office hits in Korea.

Oddly, my favorite Won Bin film is his first film - Guns and Talks. I am insanely fond of that movie - which is a comedy about hired killers.

It's hard to know what type of film to recommend to a noob in Korean film without knowing their tastes. For instance, my sister happens to detest a couple of my favorite films because she cannot stand the violence in them. To each their own. All it would take is a quick google around for "best Korean movies" to find lists from various critics.

If you do not happen to enjoy the particular styles that come out of Korea, than such is life. But Hollywood is not very likely to be making films like Taegugki, King and the Clown, or Duelist. Heck, Hollywood has bought the rights to many Korean and Japanese films for remakes, and IMHO, the original versions are almost always better.

I don't deny that cinematography and scoring is amazing in Korean films. On those grounds they are on par with any film in the rest of the world and in some cases even better. But like I've been saying, my main gripe is just story telling. Some of these films feel a little muted in development and I don't feel like I'm getting enough. It may be the style or I don't know what, but it's just not to my taste so perhaps it's not something I'm getting. In any case I didn't think I would be getting such a response since my comment was not to incite some sort of outrage from Korean cinema fans, I was only saying that I felt like Korean dramas seemed to offer a little more for actors than movies. That's just my opinion, nothing more.

Check out his CF at youtube. He is just amazing ... not only have a handsome face ... he also has a killer smile that will make everyone falls for it. Even my mom said that she never saw a guy so handsome ... no matter what age you are ... you'll easily get attracted by him. I miss him very much since his last drama and I am hoping that he will pick one in the near future. Movie is good, but it takes a long time to shoot a good one and I am sure everyone wants to see him more in acting. Just a short 16 ep drama will be good ....

Just watched the CF over in youtube.. thanks for recommending. Damn HOT Won Bin.. and the kiss.. wish I was Shin Mina.. but IMO, the CF was cheesy hehe. Not complaining though, as long as I can see Won Bin in there, I'll readily swallow the cheese :)

I love Won Bin... if he enters Hollywood I would definitely go watch his movie and probably be one of the only ones who is going to freak out when he comes out.... I want to see him on dramas, if he comes out on dramas my computer screen will be filled with finger prints from me trying to touch him.... if I see him in movies I would be able to watch him act different characters....

I know this is not a contest, but I've watched hundreds of dramas and at least a thousand movies. Its all I do, all day, most of the night. Korean dramas and their triangles and mean mothers in law are a tribute to lazy writing and a formula that works, sorry to say. But, Korean film is great. Korean film has definitely earned its place in my film library. I haven't watched an American movie or American broadcast TV in at least 12 years.

In Autumn Tale, I'd definitely have taken Won Bin over Song Seung Hun and still would. For anyone who hasn't seen it, Mother is a worthwhile watch. Won Bin did a really good job here.

I am the same. I like Song Seung Hun especially at "My Princess", but no doubt Won Bin shines more in the Autumn Tale.

Well he's known as movie actors, A-list actors like Jang Dong-gun, who once step into the Chungmuro world, it's rare to see them to step back into small screen.

Case in point, Ha Ji-won (ALSO a movie actress, A-lister) recent 'comeback' to small screen with Secret Garden after her last successful drama, Hwang Jin-yi in 2005.

Easy, because Won Bin has a very successful career in movies. He may act in a drama (if there's great script) one day, but I think he will focus in movies in his career. Look at those Hollywood and Asian top stars they are mostly acting in movies.

I want to see him in a Hollywood movie. He can always do a drama - but if he makes it into a HW movie it can open doors for more Koreans and Asians to enter HW. That = good.

Ah, that picture is amazing. Personally, I'd be happy to watch him in anything, as long as it comes out SOON. He's such an amazing actor. I think I need to go rewatch Ajusshi right now.

Ok, the whole will he make it big in America or not: Not if his English is bad. I don't just mean speaking it, I mean comprehension. Actors are big in America if they can throw themselves around the press junket crap whether they are wanted there or not. You can't sit there with a translator on a late night talk show. It goes for anything, you can be the hottest sh-t anywhere and be a nobody here.

I think the lack of English understanding is what gets you in the horrible movie project club. It's like the managers are some slick used cars salesmen. "Cartoon Movies are big! You so wanna be in one. . ."

I'd like to hear some of Won-bins English before I gave him the go ahead, but for now I say stay away. You'll just have better projects to choose from being a big fish in Korea than a small fish in America's crap infested movie pool which either has Oscar contenders, film-circuit darlings or just time-wasting junk to rake in date dollars. Oh man that was long I apologize.

OMG!! He looks gorjess in the above picture.
Park Shi Hoo is a type of actor that you have to watch a project of his and than you get all the hype surrounding him.
But WONBIN is the type of actor who you just see and fall in love without ever seeing any of his work. Which I mean after you see his work its like you fall hard for him.

I loved him in Man from Nowhere like NO JOKE. He was sooo GOOOD.

I really want to see him in a drama especially a rom-com. Imagine if "Discovery of Affection" was given to WONBIN instead ahhhhh <3

I want him to appear in a drama...I think the reason he doesn't want to appear in drama is because he's shy...if he's in drama...most probably he'll taking the love role acting beside an actress...
He mentioned before that he will not be doing anymore drama.....that's so sad...I miss him in drama...

TMFN is a really great movie and worth watching. Love the last scene, really feel his emotion. *I will hug you Ahjussiii* ?
