Hyun Bin is the new global Benchsetter

After a series of teasers, it is official: Hyun Bin has officially crash-landed on Bench as the Filipino clothing brand’s latest Global Benchsetter.

The brand confirmed the news on the evening of July 4.

Hyun is one of the most established actors in the industry. He has appeared in several dramas such as “My Lovely Sam Soon”, “The Snow Queen”, “Secret Garden”, “Hyde Jekyll, Me”, and “Memories of Alhambra”. He has also acted in movies such as “A Millionaire’s First Love”, “Confidential Assignment”, and “The Swindlers”. He gained prominence among Filipino fans for his role as Captain Ri in the drama “Crash Landing On You”.

Hyun Bin joins K-Pop girl group TWICE and Korean drama actors Park Seo Joon, Ji Chang Wook, Park Hyung Sik, Park Shin Hye, and Lee Min Ho as Bench’s list of Global Benchsetters. Previous endorsers included Super Junior’s Siwon and Donghae, and 2PM’s Nichkhun.

Due to the ongoing quarantine, Bench might not be able to bring Hyun Bin to the Philippines any time soon. In the meantime, let’s just wait for the content that Bench will be providing for us!
