On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of “The World They Live In,” a fascinating story about the movie has been shared with the global audience. It is known that this project played a significant role in bringing Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo together, a couple whose public relationship announcement caused a sensation in the entertainment industry. It turns out that both actors simultaneously waived their paychecks for the producers of this film, an act that earned them a perfect score from the public.
“The World They Live In” falls into the genres of romance and drama, with Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo in the lead roles. When the movie was released in 2008, Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo surprised audiences with their explosive on-screen chemistry, appearing almost like a real-life couple. Hyun Bin once shared that the film featured an abundance of kissing scenes, leading to a certain level of awkwardness between him and his co-star.
However, the subsequent performance of these two A-list stars couldn’t salvage a lackluster storyline in “The World They Live In.” The movie hit rock bottom in terms of ratings and is often regarded as the most forgettable project in the careers of Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin. It’s worth noting that both stars didn’t receive their full paychecks as initially agreed upon.

It wasn’t until 2014 that the South Korean media reported that the duo had agreed to waive their pay for the film production team. The reason behind this decision was the mutual desire of both Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo to help the production team overcome their financial crisis. This selfless act earned praise from both the audience and the media.
Fifteen years have passed since “The World They Live In” first aired, and Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo have yet to reunite on screen. Currently, Hyun Bin is actively involved in the film industry and spends quality time caring for his firstborn son with Son Ye Jin. As for Song Hye Kyo, she is making a strong comeback in the television industry and enjoying a cheerful single life at the age of 41.
