Park Hae Il

Park Hae-il (born January 26, 1977) is a South Korean actor.

Park Hae-il began appearing in theatre productions ever since childhood, and he first established himself on stage rather than on the screen. In 2000 he was awarded the Best New Actor award in the theatre category of the Baeksang Art Awards for his role in the play Cheongchun-yechan. His film debut was in a minor role of Yim Soon-rye's Waikiki Brothers, however he left a major impression in his second film Jealousy Is My Middle Name, in which he played a conflicted young man who develops a fascination/hatred for his boss, who has stolen two women from him. The film won the top prize at the Pusan festival in 2002, and was released commercially the following spring.



Throughout his career Park has been cast in two different types of roles: innocent-looking, boyish characters, or else men who hide a dark streak under a nice-looking exterior. After Jealousy, Park would take on his darkest role of all in the acclaimed smash hit Memories of Murder, where he portrayed a man suspected of committing serial murder. Yet the following year he was just as effective appearing in a romantic role opposite Jeon Do-yeon in time-travel drama My Mother, the Mermaid.



In 2005 he once again played characters of completely opposite temperament. In Rules of Dating he plays a dirty-minded, scheming high school instructor who sets his mind on a pretty student teacher played by Kang Hye-jung, while in The Boy Who Went to Heaven he plays a young boy who suddenly finds himself an adult one day, ala Tom Hanks in Big.



2006 saw him return to work with acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho in the big-budget monster movie The Host.

    i think he is a very versatile actor.. i dont really recognized his face until recently when i have actually watched most of his movies lol... maybe because he is like a chameleon, he can looks like in his 20s and he can ages 70s (i realized this when i read some of his movies' synopsis) when he is actually only 30 sth yrs old...i think the reasons i cant recognized him is because he doesnt do dramas and he is a chameleon lol...i believe that's what a good actor really is...he will at the end be recognized due to his work not his face, like how i come to recognized him and then start digging who he is...now i know his name, Park Hae Il..keep up the good job... and i hope he wins more award (not sure, but i dont think he win any yet...though most of his film get some awards)
