Korean hallyu star Lee Byung-hun will be making an appearance on “Good Morning America,’ one of the U.S.’ most watched news programs, it was announced this week.

The ABC Network show is preparing a special production in commemoration of the 60th anniversary since the outbreak of the Korean War (1950-53). “Long War” will focus on the rapid development of the country over the past six decades, featuring interviews with Lee Byung-hun, President Lee Myung-bak and Doosan President Park Yong-man to cover culture, politics and the economy, respectively.

Lee met with the program heads last week in Gangnam, southern Seoul, to discuss his rise to leading-role Hollywood blockbuster fame. They compared his success to that of the “Miracle on the Han,” a term used for the exponential economic growth of the country.

The 39-year-old actor played Storm Shadow in the 2009 “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” film with a reprisal role in the sequel. He recently completed filming for his next movie “I Saw the Devil,” which will be released this summer.

The broadcast date of the special has not been announced.
