What has Hyun Bin been up to lately? Other than being inhumanely good looking, that is? He’s been out of the army for over a year and still he’s first acting project hasn’t hit the screens yet. It’s looking more and more likely that he’s going down the movie-exclusive route and I wouldn’t blame him for it. He chose as his first post-military project the sageuk movie The King’s Wrath where he plays King Jeongjo with a supporting cast of Han Ji Min, Jung Jae Young, Jo Jung Seok, and Jung Eun Chae. It’s billed as dark and intense, and the last time a similar type of sageuk movie came along it was Masquerade (Gwanghae: The Man Who Became King) back in 2012 with Lee Byung Hun and that movie turned out to be a box office winner and awards magnet. Here’s to hoping the same treatment for Binnie’s movie if it ends up being as good as the first teaser hints at. Binnie has been steadily making his way through Asia for a series of fan meetings to reconnect with his fans in various countries and this past weekend he wrapped it up with his final stop in Yokohama, Japan. Despite the wicked snow storm in town, 5000 of his devoted fans still showed up to watch Binnie up close and personal, receiving the obligatory singing performance, games played, and question-and-answer session. I’m resigned to Binnie looking this skinny forever, whatever he did to lose so much weight for Secret Garden seems to have crept back after he finished his military service. He’s still got the most awe-inducing cheekbones in the business and I’m loving his recent hairstyle. I am so over the huge front combover thingie that seems to be all the rage in K-dramas, or maybe the popularity of You From Another Star makes it appear ubiquitous. Up next for Binnie is diving into the filming for the modern courtroom procedural thriller movie Insufficient Evidence where he plays a defense lawyer who uses the technical loophole of lack of evidence to get his criminal clients off the hook. That’s the bare bones synopsis available but I’m sure there is lots of meaty grist in the role and story so it managed to entice Binnie on board.
