Lee Byung Hun Says He Met with Psy and Park Ji Sung in London
Lee Byung Hun opened up about a staggering meeting between three global stars.
The actor spoke up about a meeting he had with Psy and soccer player Park Ji Sung in front of Korean press after winning the Star of the Year Award at the 2012 CineAsia Awards on December 13 in Hong Kong.
A series of paparazzi photos had showed that Psy and Lee Byung Hun had met back when the meeting happened, and their meeting alone made big issues for being one between the biggest Korean global stars in the world. It turns out, however, that soccer player Park Ji Sung, another big Korean star who plays in the Premier League, was also there.
Lee Byung Hun had been in London to film Red 2, and Psy had dropped by the city on his promotions around Europe. Park Ji Sung wasn′t playing a game that day due to an injury. The three decided that day to get together and grab a meal.
Lee Byung Hun said, "Because we three were all active in different areas, we were amazed while we talked about and listened to each other′s stories. We, of course, mostly talked about how Psy was great, though."
He said, "I worked out at a nearby gym when I was in London, and the gym there also played Gangnam Style. I told Psy that he′s really doing a great job."
Lee Byung Hun made another achievement of his own this day, and he said after receiving the Star of the Year Award at the 2012 CineAsia Awards, "I was fueled by this award when I was trying to get through a lonely and difficult challenge. I′ll make sure to work harder."
