More than a year after his romantic drama series Crash Landing On You captured the hearts of many Filipinos, Korean heartthrob and new BENCH endorser Hyun Bin said it’s understandable why viewers would fall in love with his character Captain Ri.
“I think that this character is pure, serious, and most of all, knows how to sacrifice for his loved ones, which is what people loved about him,” he said during the BENCH virtual media interview event.
After doing the popular series, Hyun Bin said he became busy working on back-to-back projects.
“I have to say that I have moved on, because after CLOY, I shot 2 movies, The Point Men and Confidential Assignment 2: International. So, I have to say I have kind of moved on, but there are still people who have not gotten over CLOY and whenever I hear stories about it, the memories come back,” he admitted.
The 37-year-old actor is also scheduled to do a #HYUNBINxBENCH online show for his fans this coming July 11.
With an acting career that has spanned almost two decades, Hyun Bin said he is not the type to demand what kind of role he wants to play next.
“I don’t think I have a ‘dream role’. I constantly look for something new, be it be genre, role or story, so I guess everything I haven’t tried yet can be my ‘dream role’. Usually, I don’t select a drama or film with a specific genre in mind, so it doesn’t really matter. As long as it has an interesting theme or story that I want to try, then any genre will do. I also don’t know yet what role I’m going to do next. After finishing shooting for a film/drama, I browse through new scripts, and see if there’s a piece with a role I’m attracted to. I also don’t know yet what that role would be. I’m just constantly trying to look for something new, so I’m also curious,” he explained.
With a busy work schedule, Hyun Bin said he just tries to squeeze in some relaxation time in between takes which he considers as his ‘me’ time.
“I don’t really have a lot of free time. When I have to go into a next film/drama, I have to be on standby and get ready for it, so the only time I can fully relax is after finishing shooting a whole piece. To relax, hmm I think I take deep breaths. Inhaling and exhaling deeply 3 to 5 times makes me more relaxed,” he adds.
