Hyun Bin recently sat down for an interview with Esquire’s September issue where he opened up about working with actress Son Ye Jin.
He revealed that he was thrilled by Son Ye Jin’s acting during their movie “The Negotiator”.
There are times when an actor that I’m working with will act something unexpected and I get a thrilling feeling from their incredible skills. It’s also thrilling to see what kind of reaction I’d make to their unexpected act.
I experienced this from time to time while working with Son Ye Jin on ‘The Negotiator’. That’s why I wanted to work with her again.
— Hyun Bin
But during the movie, the two characters rarely ever met. So he expressed his desire to work with her again but this time to “stare into her eyes” while “breathing the same air“!
(Because we shot the movie through dual shooting techniques), I wanted to act with her in the same room, while staring into her eyes and breathing the same air.
That opportunity came faster than I expected.
— Hyun Bin
Is it getting hot in here or what?!
That same opportunity came very quickly as Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin both confirmed to work on a new drama, titled Emergency Love Landing. Son Ye Jin plays an heiress who accidentally lands in North Korea while paragliding. Hyun Bin plays a North Korean officer who falls in love with her while trying to sneak her back to South Korea.
The drama is set to air in November, which means we’ll be seeing Hyun Bin stare into Son Ye Jin’s eyes while breathing the same intense air!
