李炳宪:我的颠峰之作还未出现

朝鲜日报记者 姜仁仙 (2009.09.04 14:57)
“不能拿一部好莱坞电影来判断(进军好莱坞的)成败。因为今后还要在好莱坞摸爬滚打,我想现在只是上了一个台阶。”
“Don’t  determine my success or failure of (my Hollywood entry) from just one Hollywood movie.  That is because I have to fight my way there in the future, I think this is just one step up”  (Well said, hunnie ^-^)

出演好莱坞电影《G.I. Joe:眼镜蛇的崛起》(下称《G.I. Joe》)的李炳宪参加了朝鲜日报网的有线频道“Business&”的节目《姜仁仙LIVE》(译),他谨慎地谈到了进军好莱坞的感想。在《G.I. Joe》中扮演“白幽灵”的李炳宪表示,“白幽灵”与以往的现实性角色不同,这个角色像漫画人物一样具有很大的夸张成分,所以曾非常担心自己能否演好。他说:“如同在茫茫大海上,坐在没有罗盘的小艇上,仅凭直觉向可能有陆地的方向划桨。”
In the interview , he said “Storm Shadow is different from those characters in real life.  This is a cartoon character which has been exaggerated, I was once very concerned if I can play this role well. It’s like rolling a small boat in the open sea without a compass, you just have to row your way to reach the land with your intuition.

李炳宪先后拍摄了美国和法国合作的电影《伴雨行》(《I come with the rain》)和《G.I. Joe》,经历了不同于韩国的外国电影界。李炳宪表示,在拍摄外国影片时,如果工作时间规定是每天早6点到晚6点的话,就会几乎一无例外地准时收工。李炳宪说:“我曾想过何必这样死板。后来才感觉到,这是给演员留出自己的时间,毕竟演员也是人。”
LBH had a total different experience from what he had in Korea when he filmed “I come with the rain” and “G. I. Joe), a French and American production respectively.  He said: “When filming abroad, if the schedule is between 6am to 6pm, it is definate that we will finish work on time. I have thought about it, why is it so rigid.  It was only later that I realised that actors are also human beings, they need time for themselves too.”

去年,李炳宪带着电影《好家伙、坏家伙、奇怪的家伙》赴戛纳电影节时,在入住酒店的餐厅很偶然地坐在了美国著名电影演员克林特-伊斯特伍德就座的旁边餐桌。便很想去跟他打个招呼,可又怕对方万一认为自己是奇怪的粉丝,便忍了下来,而只拍了张以他作为背景的照片。他说:“我也想当一名总有一天会有其他演员也把我当成背景拍照留念的那种演员。”
Last year, went to Cannes Film Festival with “The Good, the Bad, the Weird”, in the restaruant when he was staying, he was seated at the table next to the famous American actor, Clint Eastwood.  He has wanted to say hello to Clint Eastwood, but BH was afraid that the famous actor would think that he is just a funny fans, hence he just took a picture with Clint as the backgound instead of going forward.  He said ” I would also want to be an actor whereby other actors would use me as a background one day”.
 
 
入行已近20年的他,积累了人气和阅历,同时他所承受的负担也多了起来。他说:“演员应该有自由奔放的灵魂,才能将其反映并表现在演戏上面。但倘若负担感或责任感大于演员所感受的自由感的话,从那一刻起,演戏将会变得僵硬。演员并不是只做善事的人。有时,为了积累经验或是因为自己想做而去尝试做某些事情,但人总会被道德所牵绊,所以就会变得越来越胆小和怯懦。”
In the show business for 20 year, he has gained popularity experience, at the same time, he has also to bear a lot of burden.  He said “Actors should have a free and unconstrained soul, which can be reflected during acting.  If the feel of  burden or sense of duty is greater than the actors perceived sense of freedom,  then from that moment onwards, acting would become rigid.  Actors are not someone who only does charity work.  Sometimes, one will do certain things in order to accumulate experience, or because he just wanted to try out certain things, but because moral beliefs,  he will become more and more timid and coward. “

李炳宪作为最具代表性的韩流明星,到了日本时,几乎不会外出。因为他一出动,就要动员10名保镖。
LBH who is a representative of the Korean Star, will hardly goes out when he visit Japan.  This is because, he will need to mobilise 10 bodyguards if he does so.

日本粉丝的热情真是令人惊讶,有的粉丝凌晨就冒雨在宾馆外泪眼汪汪地捧着礼物等候,有的粉丝还为他养的宠物珍岛狗“达利”也准备了礼物。
The enthusiasm of his Japanese fans is really surprising, some fans would wait outside his hotel in the early hours even when it is raining. Holding a gift with tears in their eyes waiting, and some fans even prespare gift for his pet og “Dali”.
 
李炳宪虽然身为韩流明星,却对韩流持有批判想法。他说:“作品的数量远远超过作品的质量,这种状况导致了韩流泡沫的产生。发现亚洲粉丝喜欢韩国爱情悲剧后,类似作品便接连出炉,企图借此赚钱的公司也相继出现,产生了副作用。”
As LBH is a Hallyu star himself, he has some criticism for the Hanllyu, “The number of productions are far more than the qualities of the productions, this has given rise to the Hanllyu bubble.  As Asian fans like watching love tragedy dramas, there are a lot of similar productions and companies who which to be in this business also started to appear, which has created some side effects”.

有人说,“电影演员李炳宪”和“普通人李炳宪”截然不同,简直让人疑心他是个“多重人格者”。李炳宪说:“虽然作为演员,我是个完美主义者,但作为普通人的李炳宪却有着诸多毛病,是个粗心躁动的人。演员可能体味多重人格,因为演员的工作就是,把自己内心深处的不同性格一个一个地挖掘出来,并把它放大展现出来。
Some said “MovIe Actor LBH” and “Real life LBH” is totally different, this has make others wonder if he is a person with “multi personalities”.  LBH said “Although I am a perfectionist as an actor, I am one with a lot of problems in real life, a careless and restless person.   An actor can experience multi personalities as his job is to dig out all the different personalities inside him, expand and display them out.

他说,虽然几乎没有满意过自己的表演,但有时也觉得自己“怎么能做出那种表情?真不错”。但他现在仍然认为,“李炳宪的最佳作品”还没出现。他说:“这样讲很对不起合作至今的导演们,希望尽早出现那样的作品,而且在我的演员生涯中反复出现,永远没有终点。”
He said “Although I have yet to be satisfied with my acting”, but sometimes I feel that “How come I can make that kind of expresssion, that’ not too bad”.  But he still thinks that “LBH’s best performance” has yet to appear.  He said “I am sorry to say that especially to all the directors whom I have worked with, hopefully that production will soon appear and will recur in my acting career, without an ending”.
