Lee Byung-hun narrates documentary

By Carla Sunwoo Korea JoongAng Daily

Lee Byung-hun recently talked about taking on a documentary titled "The Final Empire" as the narrator.

The star of "Gwanghae" said that he was asked to get on board during filming the current hit flick.

"I thought that the documentary was relevant to my character the King because the documentary delves deep into the notion of happiness," said Lee.

"All scenes were interesting and more so because it's about the United States, a country that we know as a world super power," said the Hallyu actor adding that, "In particular, the story about an American woman who sells her breast milk for cash and the fact that there are kids there who go hungry was very interesting."

The four-part SBS series looks at the drawbacks of capitalism and focuses on the United States as an example of capitalism going too far.

Lee Byung Hun has become a narrator for an SBS documentary.

The actor's agency revealed on November 14 that the actor would narrate for the upcoming SBS documentary End of the Empire.

The documentary explores the limitless competition and greed within capitalism and the direction and values a society must hold.

A source from the documentary's production shared, "With a theme exploring what it is we really want in life, the narrating voice we automatically thought of was Lee Byung Hun, who recently portrayed the kind of king that we wanted. Thanks to his grave voice, we believe a great production was able to come forth through his narration."

Lee Byung Hun also shared his praise on the documentary saying, "Like King Gwang Hae from the movie, Masquerade, the movie explores the world we live in and the dreams and values of the people in it in a goose bump-inducing and thrilling production."

The four-part series will premiere on November 18 on SBS.
