The Marine Corps is producing a pictorial featuring TV heartthrob Hyun Bin, who was recently stationed on Baeknyeong Island after completing boot camp.
Marine Corps sources said the pictorial features not only Hyun Bin but another Marine with a U.S. residency permit at their boot camp training and stationing at front-line units. A professional photographer and a writer have been hired, and the book will be published this summer.
Some people are accusing the Marine Corps of using Hyun Bin for publicity. But a Marine official said other recruits are also featured in the pictorial, "which is being produced to publicize the strengthened training of the Marine Corps following North Korea's attack on Yeonpyeong Island last November."
The official added other wings of the military have also published publicity pictorials.
