Korea's top star, Jang Dong Gun ("Taegukgi: Brotherhood of War" and "Good Morning President"), is in "The Warrior's Way," playing in theaters now.
Jang follows other Korean celebrities making their way to Hollywood, such as Lee Byung Hun, Gianna Jun and Rain. Like Jang, they all starred in action films with limited dialogue. At least in his current film, Jang gets to kiss the girl at the end, which is quite a change for an Asian male role in a Hollywood film.
