Actor Hyun Bin, 29, will be able to make the red carpet of the Berlin International Film Festival, ahead of entering the Marine Corps. March 7, it was announced Monday.

Hyeon received permission from the authorities to leave the country from Feb. 15 to 23. The festival, commonly known as Berlinale, runs from Feb. 10 to 20.

Hyeon requested permission to leave in order to attend the festival one month before his military service begins, but was initially informed that permission would not be given.

However, following a reference from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to the Military Manpower Administration regarding the deadline for Hyeon to report for service, which emphasized the film festival's prestige proved sufficient enough reason to approve the leave.

Two of Hyeon's films will be screened at the prestigious German festival. "Come Rain Come Shine", co-starring Im Soo-jung, will compete for the Golden Bear and his multi-national project "Late Autumn - 2010" sees the actor starring opposite Tang Wei.

He recently saw a surge in fame with his return to the small screen in the SBS drama "Secret Garden". Hyeon volunteered to take his military service in January.

The 61st Berlin International Film Festival will screen nine films from Korea.
