In 2011, Hyun starred in two films; Come Rain, Come Shine (a minimalist breakup indie directed by Lee Yoon-ki); and Late Autumn (directed by Kim Tae-yong).

Shot in Seattle, Late Autumn was an English-language remake of the 1966 Lee Man-hee classic, in which Hyun played a man on the run who falls in love with a woman who is on special leave from prison (Chinese actress Tang Wei).

When the video showed her attempting to do stunts on wire at the action school, the 36-year-old shared a secret: she actually has a fear of heights.

“I have acrophobia and in order to overcome it, I had to practise my stunts many times before the actual filming.

Ha Ji Won candidly revealed that even though part of the drama involved the two characters switching souls with each other, she was “comfortable at being a guy” and was “quite nervous sometimes when Hyun Bin put his face near mine.” There was a moment of hesitation, however, when she was quizzed if there was “real kissing” going on when the pair filmed the intimate scenes.

The crowd then took a trip down memory lane with Ha Ji Won as she revisited the sites – Gil Ra Im’s home and the action school – where was filmed.

The man, who worked for a talent management agency, then gave Hyun-Bin his business card and told him to call him.[1] Hyun-Bin's parents objected to his dream of becoming an actor initially, so Hyun-Bin attempted to pursuade them for two years.[2] His parents then suggested that the best university for acting is Chung-Ang University and if he made it into that university they would give their approval for his career choice.

Fortunately for Hyun-Bin, he was admitted to Chung-Ang University and his parents relented.

For his acting comeback after military service, Hyun chose The Fatal Encounter, his first ever period film, in which he played the leading role of King Jeongjo who faced fierce party strife and assassination attempts during his reign.

Hyun next starred in Hyde, Jekyll, Me, a 2015 romantic series in which he plays a man with split personality disorder (inspired by the literary character) whose two personas both fall for the same woman.

Another fortuitous event occured to push him along the acting path.

One day, while riding on the back of a friend's motorcycle, a man shouted to them to stop.

I will work hard to conquer the phobia and bring you more cool scenes in the future.”) and Hyun Bin took time to record video messages for her, describing her as a “pure, innocent and kind person” who is “in a league of her own as an actress.” Asked which of the two actors she thought her best co-star was, Ha Ji Won replied that she continues to keep in contact with Hyun Bin through text messages and “he will visit me when I start filming after I return to Korea”.
