From long-term parent to first-time father, these Korean actors all share their happiness and seriousness of being a father.
Recently, Hyun Bin and his fellow castmates joined a press conference for the premier of the action movie “Confidential Assignment 2: International”. Aside from new information on this upcoming work, Korean media is also delivering news about Hyun Bin’s “special requirement”: the actor will not attend an “in-person” interview apart from planned schedules. The reason for this is to protect himself from being exposed to the current raging COVID-19 in Korea, which in turn, reduces the risks for the health of his wife Son Ye Jin and his unborn child.
