Best known internationally for his leading roles in the TV dramas My Name is Kim Sam-soon (2005) and Secret Garden (2010), Hyeon Bin has now long been established as one of the biggest stars in Korea and across Asia.
One of his earliest leading roles, the TV drama My Name is Kim Sam-soon was a massive hit with average ratings of over 37% through the run and 50.5% for the finale, also winning Hyeon Bin the Top Excellence Award at the MBC Drama Awards. In 2010, Hyeon saw yet another surge of fame with Secret Garden, a romantic fantasy about a fussy and arrogant department store heir and a penniless stunt woman (played by HA Ji-won) who switch souls when it rains. The series brought in 30% ratings and caught much interest through its fashion, catchphrases and music, and Hyeon Bin was nominated for his performance at the SBS Drama Awards and Baeksang Arts Awards.
For his comeback after 21 months away for Korea’s mandatory military service, Hyeon Bin chose to star in The Fatal Encounter, his first ever period film, in which plays the leading role of King Jeong-jo who faces fierce party strife and assassination attempts during his reign.
[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Fatal Encounter": K-King in a Cage + Watch movie [USA & Canada] 2014/11/08,
There were numerous 'fatal encounters' around King Jeong-jo's first year in office; his reign (1776-1800) was riddled with factional rot and close-quarters corruption, and his accession was both immediate and threatening. It was a transitional period twisted by royal bloodshed and unruliness, the perfect personal and political storm for a visionary leader to stand steadfast and serve, or else risk becoming a feeble footnote to fortitude in Joseon's journals.
Lee Jae-gyoo's "The Fatal Encounter" recounts the chaotic genesis of the 'King of Misfortune', and depicts a resolute (real-world dreamy) ruler determined to settle the sins and debts of his father(s). In particular, the film centres on one assassination attempt, that of Jeongyuyeokbyeon, and starts its story hours before a preordained bloodshed occurs under ominously stormy skies,...More

Saw you at “Worlds Within” and got mesmerized by the portrayal of your lovable role. Very light but very touching. With this, I had to search for your other films and dramas. I have seen ” A Millionaire’s First Love” recently. Yesterday I finished watching “The Snow Queen”. Both are tragic stories, but I should say full of good lessons to learn.
As your role in WW believes that your dramas should reflect how you live, I wish you continue to live your life like the good roles you portray … nice, loving, caring, happy, and strong. Keep up the good work. I will look forward to your 2009 drama “Friend - the Untold Story”. Hope it is as nice as your previous dramas. A blessed new year to you! Stay healthy, happy, and peaceful! God bless you!
