Lee Byung Hun Becomes a Nobody While Psy Enjoys the Spotlight
Lee Byung Hun may be a more respected figure than Psy in Korea, but it seems to be the other way around outside of the country.
The actor had to settle for appearing in the background behind the global star Psy in overseas paparazzi cuts.
While grabbing a meal in London on November 11 together, the two were caught by paparazzis. They, of course, are very close friends, but the paparazzi photos showed a completely different story. Psy stood in the spotlight, while Lee Byung Hun just simply merged into the background behind him.
Netizens who saw the photos commented, "Lee Byung Hun is like a passerby, and Psy looks like the celebrity here," "I can′t believe Lee Byung Hun was so shunned next to Psy," "I didn′t notice Lee Byung Hun at first; way to go Psy," "Isn′t that just someone who looks like Lee Byung Hun?" "I think Psy lost weight" and "I can′t believe Lee Byung Hun is in the background here."
Lee Byung Hun is currently staying in London for his filming of Red 2, which he will star in next to the Hollywood top stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins.
He will also attend the London Film Festival as Masquerade was chosen as the closing film for the event.
