Lee Byung Hun is Modest about Bruce Willis’ Praise
Lee Byung Hun, the star of the Hollywood film G.I.Joe 2, revealed how he felt about the praise given him by his costar Bruce Willis.
The press day event for G.I.Joe 2 was held on April 25 in Seoul. Lee Byung Hun attended the event and talked about how he felt about the film.
Lee Byung Hun said to a question asking how he felt about Bruce Willis’ praise, “I think he was being polite, and I think he said that to help with promotion. Personally, I’m very thankful.”
In an interview with MTV, Bruce Willis mentioned Lee Byung Hun and said that his acting is “so great.” He added, “Action guys do things that I would never do. I can′t even call myself an action guy. This guy, Byung Hun, we′re going to put him in another movie, he′s so great. He′s just awesome.”
Lee Byung Hun answered the praise, saying, “I can’t dare be better than the Bruce Willis in Die Hard. I’m honored and happy that he has good feelings for me. I personally hope that he can show us something even better.”
“I can never say that a film is going to be fun when I’m promoting it after shooting it, but I feel after my few months of shooting that it’s going to be even better than the prequel,” he finished.
G.I.Joe 2, starring Lee Byung Hun, Bruce Willis, Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum and Adrianne Palicki, will premiere in the summer. The film will first start screening in America on June 29.
