Lee Byung Hun will leave for Los Angeles from Incheon International Airport with his staff on June 20 at 4:30 p.m. (KST).
Ahead of his hand printing, Lee Byung Hun will hold a few activities there, as well as conduct interviews. On June 23 (local time) at 1 p.m. in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Lee Byung Hun will take part in the hand printing ceremony.
At the press conference for G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation in April, the actor had shared his feelings on the honor saying, “I couldn’t believe it at first and thought they were lying. I still can’t believe it now. I think only after I actually do the hand printing, will I realize it’s true. Making my prints in front of the Chinese Theater is something I never even dreamed of. It is a great honor.”
His agency BH Entertainment shared its feelings on the honor with enews saying, “Though we do think it’s a bit premature, it means Hollywood has that much interest in Lee Byung Hun.”
This hand printing event is part of the American agency Looking East’s two day ‘Looking East 2012 Korean Movie Festival’ to be held on June 23 and June 24. The Grauman’s Chinese Theater served as the home of the Academy Awards from 1927 until 1946. The theater’s forecourt contains some 268 hand and foot prints of past and current celebrities.
