Hyun Bin Gives His Voice for Africa

Even though Hyun Bin entered the Korean Marines on the 7th, you can still hear his voice!

(And I’m not talking about those crazies who hear is his voice everywhere he goes…)

Hyun Bin, with his memorable voice, provided the narration for the documentary “Tears of Africa.”

“Tears of Africa” is the third installment of MBC‘s documentary series, “Tears of the World.” For the TV format and also for the theater (film) format of the documentary, the “Secret Garden” actor’s voice will be heard as the main narration.

Hyun Bin said in an interview, “Honestly, I thought that Africa was only a paradise with green plains and animals romping around Mother Earth,” frankly revealing his biased view he once had of Africa. “But I learned a lot through this narration,” he explained, “There are rising natural misfortunes, ethnic conflicts, amongst others, telling a story of shock and powerful emotion beyond imagination. It would be great if the audience while watching in the theater can learn of the problems Africa faces.”

The narration has even inspired the actor to want to go to Africa. In line with his brave decision to join the Marines, Hyun Bin revealed of one African culture, “There was a festival where they choose the most valiant men. I want to participate in that festival.”

If any of our POPSEOULers are in Korea, I hope that you get a chance to catch this documentary in theaters. The opening day for “Tears of Africa” is March 24th in Korea.

Hyun Bin can also be seen in the film “Late Autumn (Manchu),” co-starring Tang Wei.
