We’re sure you’ve all seen the photos PSH posted on his Instagram on May 26, 2016:
park_si_hoo_01필립아 #생일 축하해~^^ (Happy birthday, Philip~^^)
Who’s Philip? We’re a one-actor blog, and we only have eyes for PSH. We don’t know that many Korean actors.
Now we know “Philip” is the Korean actor Philip Lee — thanks to this Japanese blog:
We did a little research on Philip Lee and saw several of his photos, none of which resembles any one in the PSH photos.
However, apparently the 3 people who posed with PSH in the two photos on the top row all appeared in Bae Yong Jun’s 2007 drama “The Legend”. One of them is Philip Lee.
You tell us which one he is in PSH’s photos (perhaps the one on the left in top left photo?)
Photos of the other 2 in “The Legend” also appear in above-mentioned Japanese blog, as well as this photo of someone we know (and recognize):
This is of course Yoon Tae Young who plays Yoon Sang Min in “Neighborhood Hero”. So these guys all knew each other back in 2007 when they all worked in BYJ’s “The Legend”.
And then there is this photo (that we posted before on our blog):
Photo was taken in June 2010 (not sure what the occasion was.) PSH has his arm around BYJ’s shoulder, so it would appear they’re quite chummy (at least then.) Philip Lee is just above the two of them. No idea who the others are.
After all that, what are we saying? You will have to know Kevin Bacon’s “Six Degrees of Separation” to understand. The concept posits that any two people on Earth are six or fewer acquaintance links apart, in other works, anyone involved in the film industry can be linked to one another through their film roles in 6 steps.

We’re glad PSH is socializing in the entertainment circle again. We hope he’ll get invited to gala premieres and fashion events again, just like before. We love to see him pose in front of the photo wall with his signature wave. He’s always the best dressed, the one with the most flair, whether he’s in a tux or jeans. And of course we would like most for him to appear in another K-drama real soon, like yesterday^^
There’s a saying in the Hong Kong film world — “There are no eternal enemies in the entertainment world.” Whatever happened in the past, let’s hope PSH with his connections will rise again in the Korean entertainment world and have the chance to act in another drama or movie because that’s what he does best — better than anyone in the K-entertainment world now.
