Rare Sighting Of Elusive Korean Star Won Bin, 42, Shows He Hasn’t Aged In 10 Years

He hasn't been on screen for a decade but time is clearly on his side.

We’ve heard stories about actors fading out of the spotlight for various reasons ⁠— some grow unhappy with being in showbiz, while there are those who prioritise other things, such as their families, over their career.

Then there's Korean heartthrob Won Bin. Since his last movie, The Man From Nowhere, 10 years ago, he has yet to take on any new drama or film roles. His wife, actress Lee Na Young, once explained that the actor is waiting to be cast in projects that speak to his artistic sensibilities rather than film something that was made to be a commercial success.

All this waiting for him to make his onscreen comeback has led to the inevitable commotion every time anyone spots the elusive star in public. And this time around was no exception.

The 42-year-old was seen shooting an ad on May 13, and photos of him dressed casually took the Internet by storm. “Takuya Kimura looks like a middle-aged uncle right now but Won Bin looks the same [as he did before],” one netizen wrote. Another added, “This isn’t even an edited selfie, and just an [unedited] photo [from the media].”

His youthful looks also had many wondering what kind of skin treatments he’s been receiving all this time, or if it’s a combination of a stress-free life and good genes that helped him look this good.

“We haven’t seen him act for 10 years, but I feel like time has stopped since he filmed The Man From Nowhere,” one sighed. “I wonder if there will be a movie that is good enough to convince him to act again.”
