Won Bin’s New Movie Ahjusshi Breaks the Record

by Kim Unnie 25 August 2010 No Comment

Won Bin made a hit with his new action thriller movie Ahjusshi (English title is The Man From Nowhere)

It was reported that the movie, Ahjusshi or the title in english – The Man From Nowhere, managed to beat out movies that were released around the same time like Inception, Salt, Toy Story 3 in the local cinemas in South Korea, making it able to take the number one slot at the box office listing with 1 million admittances in just a week of release! I guess South Koreans are very supportive of their own entertainment industry and probably the movie was really good. Korean action movies typically are of international scale and undeniably a real competition for the international screens on the local cinemas.

There were many sold outs and it’s even hard to get the ticket for the movie. Somehow, reminding me of how difficult it was to get Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ticket last time. This may not be Won Bin’s first movie but it is Won Bin’s first lead roles, even after his hit blockbusters like Taegukgi and Mother. He had always been the supporting actor (which seems like one of the main actors and that’s how well he stands out). Won Bin is wise to choose an action packed movie as his main role debuting film, which he’s really good at in the first place.

In the film, Won Bin featured as a loner guy, Tae Shik who rarely goes out and lives in isolation. However, when his next-door neighbor, a young girl was kidnapped by gangsters, he was drawn out from solitary life to help her, and that’s when the actions begin.
