On wanting to become an actor:

Hyun Bin: Before I took on the dream to be an actor, I honestly wanted to go to the police university. So I would probably be a policeman…
On the most difficult scene he’s ever done:
Hyun Bin: There was this movie called “I’m Happy,” which I think I was involved in, in 2007 or 2008. In terms of understanding the character, I reflected a lot on myself, and it took a lot of time thinking about the movie and the character; it was definitely the most difficult role for me to play.
In the same press conference, Hyun Bin has hinted on his final selection for his comeback film. He says, “I think you will be seeing me soon.
