Lee Byung-hun figure doll to be released to market in Japan

2005/09/16 Source

Actor Lee Byung-hun will soon become the first hallyu star to have his figure doll produced in Japan. The Japanese sports daily Sankei Sports wrote on Sept. 16 that figure dolls featuring Lee's character in the movie "Bungee jumping of their own" will be released to market on Sept. 20.

A figure doll is an almost perfect mini-replica of movie, cartoon and game characters.

The 19-centimeter tall Lee Byung-hun figure doll features Lee's character from the movie's best scenes and even has the smallest details perfectly replicated. "'Bungee jumping of their own' drew the spotlight in Japan when it opened [there] last spring, and is Lee's favorite work so far. To Lee's fans, this figure doll is likely to become their most treasured possession", wrote the daily.

Sankei Sports also added that despite the growing popularity of many other hallyu stars in Japan, such as Bae Yong-joon, Won Bin and Jang Dong-gun, Lee was the first to have a figure doll produced.
