In 2013, the top of the movie charts highlighted titles such as Snow piercer, Physiognomy, and The Attorney. All three have attracted millions of people to the theater and have the same main actor: Kang-ho Song. He has been actively working in the movie industry as an actor and has numerous fans who call him the No.1 actor of Korea.

 

How Did He Get Such Recognition?

1.     Acting is Confidence

Kang-ho Song has shown his talents through his unique acting style: confidence. When Kang-ho Song acted as a fortuneteller who reads meanings from the faces in the movie Physiognomy, it was said that he did not make an effort to read any references related to the actual job. His method is to read the selected script thoroughly once, not analyzing it, but trying to feel the atmosphere of the whole movie. He believes that dissecting the lines only leads to pressure, which becomes an obstacle to showing the true potential. Rather, he focuses more on realistic actions. In one of his early works, Violation King, he did his own stunts, performing the wrestling scene himself. The audience members who watch his movies, believe that his act cannot be replaced by any other.

2.     Love Calls’ from Director Jun-ho Bong and Director Chan-wook Park

 Director Jun- ho Bong and Director Chan-wook Park are renowned in their field, and both directors enjoy working with Kang-ho Song. The recent advance of Kang-ho Song in Hollywood was confirmed by the movie, Snow piercer which was directed by Director Jun-ho Bong. Another famous film by the director is The Host, which lured 13 million people to the theater, and also featured Song. The association between Director Chan-wook Park and Kang-ho Song started with Joint Security Area, where Song showed his charismatic expression thorough his eyes as well as his friendly brotherhood. During the making of the film, Director Park already decided to work with Song again in the future. The result was the movie, Thirst (with the Korean title “Bagjwi’), which won the Jury Prize at the 62nd Cannes International Film Festival.

 

Song, Kang-ho takes pride in working as an actor, and shows his respect in each role he takes. Although he has the No.1 ranking among his audience and gets a number of calls from famous directors, he is not afraid of pushing his own limits. The audience members are keeping an eye on his next big step in the movie industry.
