One of the best parts of hit drama Crash Landing on You was the North Korean soldier squad supporting male lead Hyun Bin, and the best of that bunch was by far gruff and proud Yang Kyung Won. He got a deserving Baeksang Award Best Supporting Actor nomination out of it and will know in two weeks whether he’s taking home the prize to cap off what has been an extraordinary career year. In addition to Crash Landing, he did a cameo in Hi Bye, Mama! and up next acting-wise is a supporting role alongside Song Joong Ki in the big budget sci-fi Korean movie Space Sweeper (Battleship Victory). New BTS pictures were posted last week with the two goofing off, clearly close pals after filming the movie together. K-ent especially Chungmuro always has room and recognition for genuinely talented character actors of which Yang Kyung Won is following in the footsteps of many a great before him.
