  • Special in His Ordinariness

    There are actors who remain long in the memory despite only appearing in a few scenes. These are the scene stealers. Among the large pool of actors in film, these have reached a certain distinction. Here is a list of ten big scene stealers in the Korean film industry.
    Man-sik is a common name which can easily be found, just like a neighbor living next door. JUNG has the suburban image of someone who just moved from the countryside to Seoul. His real image is not very different from this. He actually moved from Mokpo to Seoul, dreaming of becoming an actor, and slowly and steadily walked his own path as he headed for the center of the cinema world. Looking like an ordinary breadwinner worn out by routine, although he is not married in reality, he has built up the image of a warm-blooded actor as he appeared as one of the cellmates in Miracle in Cell No. 7 (2012). His sharp eyes seem to fit those of a bad guy, but he excels as humane characters. He was particularly impressive as a detective who is sacrificed as he tries to hide the dirty truth of his colleague in A Hard Day.
