Hyun Bin is a rare Korean actor who can “weigh” many different types of roles. From action roles and cool fights to funny and warm roles, nothing can make it difficult for him
However, the actor encountered many seemingly insurmountable difficulties when participating in the movie ” I’m Happy” (I’m Happy – 2008). Sharing in an interview, Hyun Bin said that he once pushed the director into the swimming pool after a difficult scene in I’m Happy .
