While we last saw Hyun Bin on the screen in the 2019-20 hit romance drama Crash Landing On You, it seems like these days he is everywhere. From billboards to online ads, Hyun Bin has been fronting many campaigns, ranging from Tom Ford Beauty and Loro Piana to Omega and Lazada.
Hyun Bin, whose real name is Kim Tae-pyung, debuted in 2003 in the TV series Bodyguard and later catapulted to global stardom with the 2005 romcom My Lovely Sam Soon. Since then, Hyun has starred in many iconic productions including A Millionaire’s First Love (2006), Secret Garden (2010-11), The Negotiation (2018) and Memories of the Alhambra (2018-19). The Negotiation was when he first worked with his wife Son Ye-jin, but it wasn’t till Crash Landing On You when romantic feelings between the two started to develop. Fans of the RiRi couple (including us) were screaming in joy (or heartache) when the news broke at the start of 2021 that the two are dating.
As we celebrate the Libra star turning 40 on September 25, here we’ve decided to round up some interesting facts about the star that you may not know about.
