Every drama has great quotes that get stuck in our heads even years after they’ve first been said.

[Star of the Week] That’s What Hyun Bin Said – Memorable Drama Quotes

To commemorate Hyun Bin returning to society from the army, we’ve chosen some of our favorite quotes from Hyun Bin’s popular dramas.

Anytime you hear these quotes, it’s most likely that you’ll be reminded of our favorite Marine boy man.

I Don’t Like You. You Suck

It’s probably the shortest but funniest of Hyun Bin’s lines in MBC’s My Name is Kim Sam Soon.

Unable to fight against his pride, Hyun Bin tries so hard to one-up Daniel Henney, who was in love with Jung Ryeo Won, Hyun Bin’s girlfriend at the time.

Hyun Bin suggests a game of basketball, but once he realizes that Daniel Henney is so much better, he changes game to swimming, his specialty. Hyun Bin beats Daniel Henney, and Daniel Henney, seeing right through Hyun Bin’s efforts, calls Hyun Bin cute, which lands him a punch in the face.

When Daniel Henney angrily asks why, Hyun Bin stares Daniel Henney right in the face and replies in his usual arrogant way:

“I don’t like you. You suck.”

And then the boys fight, because that’s just how boys solve their problems.

Another jewel appears in the same scene, when Daniel Henney stares at him and Hyun Bin replies, “What? Did you fall in love with me too?” leaving Daniel Henney absolutely flabbergasted.

People Live Knowing that They’ll Die

Finally realizing that he can’t keep Jung Ryeo Won living in false hope while he’s in love with Kim Sun Ah, Hyun Bin decides to break up with her.

He visits her house and washes her feet.
Slowly, he suggests that they break up, saying he has changed over the years.

Jung Ryeo Won: Do you love her?
Hyun Bin: I keep thinking about her.
Jung Ryeo Won: Do you love her?
Hyun Bin: I want to see her.
Jung Ryeo Won: Do you love her?
Hyun Bin: When I’m with her, I’m happy.
Jung Ryeo Won: When time passes by, it’ll become nothing, like us. Do you still want to go?

After a few moments of silence, Hyun Bin finally replies back.

”People live knowing that they’ll die.”

A sad and bitter good-bye, but one that couldn’t be avoided.

That…is My Answer

As Ha Ji Won arrives at Hyun Bin’s party, looking beautiful as ever, to hear Hyun Bin’s answer on whether or not he’s willing to give up everything to love her, Hyun Bin’s annoying friend tries to hit on her.

Hyun Bin tells his friend that he’s not worthy of being in Ha Ji Won’s presence and says this:

”She’s an amazing woman.
This woman drives like a car racer.
If she witnesses someone getting her purse snatched or sexually harassed, she’ll throw punches for someone she’s never even seen before.
She has no money and her body is covered in scars, and she doesn’t want to spend even one second of one minute with people like us.
She’s that kind of woman.
I’ve never seen a woman as cool as her.
That… is my answer.”

He kisses her later on and Ha Ji Won notices that everyone’s watching the two of them. He replies that it’s because the CEO of their company just kissed a poor stunt woman and suggests that everyone holding stocks his company should go sell it right now, because the CEO completely lost his head over a girl and is ruining his business.

It doesn’t get more romantic than that.

Kim Soo Han Moo Geo Bukgi Wa Doo Roo Mi....

Kim Soo Han Moo Geo Bukgi Wa Doo Roo Mi Sam Cheon Gab Sa Dong Bang Sark Chi Chi Ka Po Sa Ri Sa Ri Sen Ta Weo Ri Weo Ri Se BBu Ri Ka Moo Doo Sel La Goo Roomi Heo Ri Kae In Dam

This is the long name that Hyun Bin recites whenever he feels that he needs to calm himself down and get distracted. He said it often in the beginning of SBS’ Secret Garden , when he kept thinking about Ha Ji Won, even when he didn’t want to.

The origin of the long name is unknown, but there is a story that says that a fake fortuneteller told a couple to name their child a really long name so that the child will live just as long. Each name represents a person or a creature that lives a long time (IE: Geo Bukgi = turtle).

Unfortunately, the child fell into a river and a servant went to warn the parents. When the parents asked which child it was, the servant recited the name, which was so long that the child actually ended up drowning to death in an ironic twist.

Since What Age Did You Become So Pretty?

Perhaps one of the most memorable moments from Secret Garden was when Hyun Bin bickered that he needed a partner for sit-ups and Ha Ji Won ended up being that partner against her will.

After he does some bad sit-ups, Ha Ji Won scolds him, making Hyun Bin properly do the exercise, shortening the gap between their faces.

The heart-fluttery moment that made all the women unable to sleep the night the episode aired, Hyun Bin just had to go a step further and smile while peering into her face.

Then he whispered, “Since what age did you become so pretty?” and ended up making that scene one of the most parodied in 2011.

There are definitely more amazing, touching, and hilarious quotes that came out of Hyun Bin’s mouth during his drama career, and we′re sorry that we couldn′t include everything, but what are some of your favorite Hyun Bin quotes?
