Hwang Jung-min started off with "Ode to My Father" which set a record of 140 million viewers. The movie is about a regular head of a family in the 1950s but it brought about a massive wave in our society.
Hwang Jung-min proved he could make the public cry if he wanted to. He perfectly portrayed the role of a character from his early teens to his old age.
Hwang Jung-min was awarded the Best Actor at the 35th Golden Film Awards, Actor of the Year at the 15th Directors' Cut and the Best Couple Award at the 8th Seoul Elderly Film Awards.
"Veteran" set a record of 130 million viewers and made another hit. There hasn't been anyone yet who made a success this great two times in a row. Hwang Jung-min was in the middle of Korean movie success.
That isn't it. Hwang Jung-min even said, "It's no fun when an actor thinks about success. There are still many mountains to climb". Then he started off on his next venture.
Hwang Jung-min starred in the newest movie "The Himalayas" which is based on the true story of mountain climber Eom Hong-gil and his expedition to rescue a teammate who never made it out alive of the Himalayas. Like the great leader Eom Hong-gil, Hwang Jung-min was a great leader throughout the making of the movie.
Hwang Jung-min created a lot of results. He's always played important roles in movies like "The Unjust", "Dancing Queen", "The New World" and "Fist of Legend" but now he will be remembered for "Ode to My Father" and "Veteran". His past works haven't always been greatly successful but he turned all that around this year.
With the end of 2015 almost here, Hwang Jung-min is preparing to film movies "A Violent Prosecutor" with Gang Dong-won and "Asura: The City of Madness" with Jung Woo-sung. His co-stars are all top stars but Hwang Jung-min has the ability to shine and create synergy with anyone.
