While PSY is quickly becoming the Korean celebrity with the biggest network of non-Korean stars, Lee Byung Hun is also being recognized for having many Hollywood friends.
On November 10, Lee Byung Hun attended the “7th London Korean Film Festival.” Eyes were drawn especially when many Hollywood actors and actresses attended the screening for Lee Byung Hun’s “Masquerade” (or “Gwang Hae“).
Lee Byung Hun stepped on the red carpet with Bruce Willis on this night. They are currently co-stars for the upcoming movie, “Red 2.” Bruce Willis attended the event to see Lee Byung Hun’s movie as well.
Other Hollywood actors who attended the screening for “Masquerade” include John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Ray Stevens, Elodie Yung, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and more. England’s QPR soccer player Park Ji Sung also attended the screening.
After the screening, Bruce Willis and John Malkovich were full of compliments for the film and said, “It was amazing. It was perfect.” Ray Stevens commented, “Though the lines were in Korean and I couldn’t understand, when I saw his acting, I knew what he was saying just by looking at his face,” expressing his amazement at Lee Byung Hun’s acting.
Meanwhile, Lee Byung Hun will return to working on “Red 2” in London for the rest of the year.
