  • [2012-04-26]
  • Actors An Sung Ki and Lee Byong Hun will leave their handprints in Hollywood, a first for Asian actors.

    According to film PR company First Look on April 25, Lee Byong Hun will visit Mann's Chinese Theater located on the Hollywood Walk of Fame from June 23 to 24 to leave his handprint on the street. His stamp will be the first Asian person's hand print in the past 85 years besides the Asian movie director John Woo, who directed the film "A Better Tomorrow."

    Lee Byong Hun, who participated in the press conference for the movie "G.I. Joe 2" in Apgujeong on April 25, said, "I heard the news while filming the movie in the USA and I could not believe it at first."




    Legendary actors such as Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Clint Eastwood, and Tom Cruise have left their handprints on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Look East, which is the host agency of the event, said, "Lee Byong Hun has already become recognized worldwide for his excellent acting in the movies 'A Bittersweet Life' and 'The Good, The Bad, The Weird.' And he has also become recognized as one of the influential Asian actors in Hollywood in 2012 with his appearances in the 'G. I. Joe.' series. Nobody will raise an objection to his appearance on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as the first Asian star."




    Actor An Sung Ki will also participate in the handprinting event by the recommendation of the Korean Film Commission on the same day. First Look explained that An Sung Ki has been selected as he is the most respectable actor in Korea who has appeared in around 100 movies up to now.

    "G. I. Joe 2" will be released in Korea in June. [Yonhap]
