Korean actor EomEom Tae-woong [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]
Of the many actors who suddenly become unreachable superstars or who have a hard time getting out of their own characters, Eom Tae-woong is someone who has quietly walked his own path. After many years as a struggling actor, he played a dying man faced with a death sentence in KBS TV series "Drama City", which led to his role as a fantastic villain who was impossible to hate in "Sassy Girl, Chun-hyang". And after shooting "Revnege" and "Devil", in which he expressed a soul conflicted between the good and bad, between sin and punishment, he gained the nickname "the Eom force". His roles -- a free-spirited young man who falls in love with a woman twenty years his senior in the film "Family Ties", a cold elite coach for the National Women's Handball Team in "Forever the Moment", and a celebrity manager who is driven to the extreme in "Hand Phone" -- are so various and full of effort that one cannot easily make presumptions about him.

In describing this great general who helped Queen Seon-deok achieve unification of three countries, Eom says, "I can't say that my character is portraying the real General Kim Yoo-shin but I think this man was truly a "big man". He may seem brusque to women and inconsiderate to the general public, but he tried hard and went through agony to attain a big goal rather than a small one".
