I really respect this Actor after seeing him in Friends, Taegukgi & Typhoon!

Well we know that Kim Yun-Jin is in "lost" but she's a support cast
and Rain "Speed Racer" pretty sure he won't be in it much...

But don't wanna include Korean-Americans like John Cho from "Harold & Kumar go to White Castle"

But would this movie make a big impact in Korea???

Oh thanks for posting this, I can't wait to see this. Have to agree Jang Dong Gun is like the top Korean male actor for some time now. Both Tae Guk Gi and Friend are my top 2 Asian films, truly must see films!

I think the film will be popular because JDG is so well known and recognized in Korea even if he hasn't been as active recently. I know I'll go out of my way to see this film.

Yup yup!!!


I'm hoping that he'll be involved in more Hollywood movies
Such as other Asian Actors and Actresses like
Zhang Ziyi, Gong Li, Chow Yun Fat, Ken Watanabe, Jackie Chan & Jet Li & more~

So far these actors I know are main characters in some Hollywood movies~ ^^

Aren't most that you listed from Hong Kong where English is readily used? I think that's also a very important reason because it's hard for foreign actors to play major roles in Hollywood movies if they're English is limited lol.

Add Michelle Yeoh (sp?) to list. She was in the movie "Sunflower" about some futuristic expedition to the sun to reignite it. Saw maybe 1st hour but then never got to finish seeing it all.

Yeah~ true, except for some names... like from mainland China~
"Michelle Yeoh" is awesome~ she's Malaysian...



Well you might see "Tony Ja" from "Ong Bak" being a Hollywood Action Star! lolz

But right now, "Jang Dong-Gun" is the man I'm hoping for success! lolz

hehehe, Jang Dong Gun is who actually got me addicted to Kdramas when I saw him in Icing...I've been hooked ever since, and he is such a great actor, I'm really looking forward to watching him in Laundry Warrior...I'm also looking forward to watching Bi (Rain) in Speed Racer too though...he may not be the main character, but he's not being overlooked either...it's a good start for him...
