Tae Do - still going on...

I was not able to take a clean screenshot from this clip. So, I had to use my digital camera to take a shot of my computer monitor. :p

My friend has better images uploaded to her blog. Check them out at:

This hair style reminded me another Korean actor from the TV drama, LOST. I am not following up the latest episodes, but I watched all of the episodes up to season 3. It is interesting that the actors and actresses we can see in TV dramas are not the same people we see in the movies. There are some overwraps, of course. But things are very different in Japan. Those who take the main roles in the movies are also very popular on TV shows. I heard the way of generating revenue in Japanese show business industry is totally differnt. That may be the reason I cannot find truly good young movie actors/actresses from Japan. I love seeing Korean actors from Korea doing Japanese roles in Holloywood movies. But I wonder why not from Japan? I cannot think of any good actor from Japan doing the main guy in the kind of movies Sung would also take a part. Oh well...

Anyway, as long as I can see Sung, TV or movie does not matter to me! (BTW, in case you are wonder, I'm from Japan.)

Haha. Your kids picked up some Japanese words from the movie? That's too bad. None of them speak very well. Brian Tee wasn't too bad, but I can tell he did not grow up in Japan. The worst one was Leo Nam. He got a heavy Korean accent and I could not even understand what he tried to say sometimes. Mr. Kang did not say much in Japanese. But I first thought he may be a Japanese. I guess he only said a few words and I did not pick up any strange accent. :)
