Here’s our first peek into Won Bin’s upcoming movie, Mother. The image isn’t that great and I have a great annoyance with news agencies that splash their logos across people’s faces, but as it’s the first official still released by the production, we’ll have to make do with what we get.

In the film, directed by The Host’s Bong Joon-ho, Won Bin is falsely charged with murder; his mother (Kim Hye-ja) steps in to try to clear his name. Based on the director’s name and Won Bin’s participation, the film has already been sold for Japanese and French distribution.

Won Bin’s Parents’ House Wins 2008 Korean Architecture Award

Posted in Entertainment News, Won Bin with tags on October 17, 2008 by koala41

The house actor Won Bin built for his parents in Jeongseon, Gangwon Province has won the 2008 Korean Architecture Award. IDMM Architects, which was in charge of designing the house, said the house won the award on September 22.

The 406.46㎡ house, located on national highway 42, boasts an innovative structure. The first floor of the house leads directly to the third floor, without a second floor.

Apparently, Won Bin showed a photograph of Jennifer Lopez’s Beverly Hills mansion to architect Kwak Hee-soo, and also asked him to incorporate memories of his old childhood home in Gangwon Province into the design.

The kitchen is adorned with red bricks and features an old-style cooking-range that can heat the floor of the guest room.
