Hyun Bin Biography, Wiki

Hyun-Bin was born on September 25, 1982 in Seoul, South Korea. His real name is Kim Tae-Pyung. He has one older brother. Hyun-Bin’s childhood was fairly typical, except he was noted for having good looks. By the 6th grade, Hyun-Bin dreamed of becoming a detective.

By his high school days, a senior student advised Hyun-Bin to try out for the theatre club and practice acting. After Hyun-Bin performed in the school play he realized that acting was his calling and that he wanted to pursue it as a career.

Another fortuitous event occured to push him along the acting path. One day, while riding on the back of a friend’s motorcycle, a man shouted to them to stop. Hyun-Bin’s friend did not have driver’s license at the time so he didn’t stop his motorcycle.

The man then pursued them on the motorcycle until the road ended. The man, who worked for a talent management agency, then gave Hyun-Bin his business card and told him to call him.

Hyun-Bin’s parents objected to his dream of becoming an actor initially, so Hyun-Bin attempted to pursuade them for two years.

His parents then suggested that the best university for acting is Chung-Ang University and if he made it into that university they would give their approval for his career choice.

Fortunately for Hyun-Bin, he was admitted to Chung-Ang University and his parents relented. At Chung-Ang University, Hyun-Bin worked lighting and managed the school theatre. He also participated in school plays.

Hyun Bin Career

After college, came the hard phase, the auditioning. He did that and got a role in the series ‘Bodyguard’ in 2003, and several other small roles followed after that. This young boy with stunning looks and above average acting skills was becoming popular among the producers who catered mostly to the teenagers.

And to make the best out of his boyish charm, he was casted in 2005 series ‘My Name is Kim Sam Soon’, the series became a rage among Korean youngsters and Hyun became a sensation. Not just his good looks, his acting prowess was being praised as well, getting him his career’s first award, the Top Excellence Award at the MBC Drama Awards.

After the success of ‘My Name is Kim San Soon’ came the film, which wasn’t received very well by the box office or the critics, but later went on to gain a cult following, ‘A Millionaire’s First Love’.

The film, which started as a romantic comedy, ended on the lines of tragic romance films and is still considered to be one of the best works of Hyun’s career. Although the film performed poorly, Hyun was already a major Korean star by then.

‘The Snow Queen’, the next television series was a disaster as well, and this led Hyun to reconsider his choices and he decided to do some solid dramatic role after that in the TV series ‘The World that they Live in’ in 2008, and in the same year, his film ‘I am Happy’ was selected to be featured in the highly regarded Busan International Film Festival.

In the next year, Hyun had a major change of image as he played a sociopath in 2009’s ‘Friend, Our Legend’. The film was successful and Hyun’s portrayal was highly appreciated in the national and international media. It was a remake, and reportedly, Hyun saw the original film about 30 times in order to get in the skin of the character.

The 2010 series ‘Secret Garden’ brought Hyun a lot of appreciation and in that year’s award functions, Hyun had a great run. He received the SBS Drama Award and Baeksang Arts Award for his magnificent performance. The series was his grand comeback to the romantic comedy genre and Hyun became much more careful in choosing roles after that.

In 2011, Hyun starred in three films, one of them was ‘Late Autumn’ an English language drama which happened to be a remake of an old Korean film. The film was an international success and broke the record in China to become the highest grossing Korean film ever, and it still holds the record.

Hyun also got the chance to walk the red carpet at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival, which he regards as the best experience of his life.

Hyun then appeared in the film ‘The Fatal Encounter’, a period drama which invited a lot of criticism, both for the screenplay and the performances and is now regarded as one of the biggest debacles of Hyun’s career.

The backlash continued in 2015, with the critical failure of the TV series ‘Hyde, Jekyll, Me’.Coming out of the bad career phase, he starred in 2017’s ‘Confidential Assignment’, a film in which he played a North Korean detective. The film was a success, both in terms of praises and box office returns.
