If you've been tuning into Our Blues for the past couple of weeks, then you've probably fallen in love with the gentle-natured Lee Dong-seok. The homegrown country boy possesses a docile personality that makes it seem like he couldn't hurt anyone or anything, not even a fly. What might surprise you though is that the actor behind him is actually a well-known action star!

Bringing Dong-seok to life is none other than Lee Byung Hun. The slice-of-life K-drama serves as his return to the small screen after four years, but the 51-year-old's acting resume actually spans almost three decades. Ahead, we list down eight titles of his you simply shouldn't miss out on.
