      Actor Hwang Jung-min attracted over 30 million moviegoers just last year alone with the string of films he appeared in.

      Hwang starred in nine movies over the last five years, including hits "Ode to My Father" (2014), "Veteran" (2015) and "The Himalayas" (2015), attracting altogether 47.36 million moviegoers.

      Yoon Je-kyoon, who directed "Ode to My Father" and produced "The Himalayas," said, "He looks like someone next door, giving familiar impressions to everyone. Separated from his great acting skills, he can fit both good and evil characters perfectly well, allowing viewers to be immersed in his cinematic roles on screen."

      He is also one of a few actors in their mid-40s who suits a melodramatic role.
