BoA’s COBU 3D brother revealed
COBU 3D will star one of the favorite stars of the ABC show “Dancing With the Stars,” Derek Hough. BoA will be starring as the lead actress and the man who will play her brother is also supposedly a famous Korean entertainer! There has been little to no news of who will play the role of BoA’s fictional brother in the movie for a long time, but BoA recently revealed him through Twitter!
BoA recently tweeted her good friend Don Theerathada. She wrote, “Going to meet my brother KAZ!!!!! Can’t wait!!!” Shortly thereafter, Don Theerathada tweeted her in response, asking her if it was a man called “Will”, to which she confirmed. After that, a new tweet appeared on her Twitter page addressed to a username called WillYunLee1.
Her later tweets left no doubt that this person, WillYunLee1, is her “brother” in the movie COBU 3D, for she wrote to this person that Don Theerathada had mentioned his greetings to him and that they would do well together in the movie! Will Yun Lee will be playing the role of Kaz, BoA’s brother in COBU 3D.
Does he sound familiar? Here’s some background on Will Yun Lee:
Will Yun Lee is an emerging talent on both the big and small screens. Lee was featured in People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful and 25 Sexiest Men Alive issues.
Will just completed shooting CBS’s Hawaii 5-0 and ABC’s Boston’s Finest. Also, in the MGM feature Red Dawn, Will is the lead villain opposite Chris Hemsworth, which will open this Thanksgiving. His film 5 Star Day, starring opposite Cam Gigandet is opening the 2010 Newport Beach Film Festival. Will starred in the critically acclaimed HBO/BBC filmTsunami: The Aftermath opposite Tim Roth, Sophie Okonedo, Toni Collette, and Chiwetel Ejiofor as well as the Emmy nominated F/X mini-series THIEF. Will’s feature credits also include the Marvel Entertainment action flick Elektra, where he played the lead villain opposite Jennifer Garner, as well as Die Another Day and Torque for Warner Brothers.
Lee was born in Arlington, Virginia, to parents recently emigrated from Korea. He was raised by both immediate and extended family and moved often, exposed to life on the Bronx streets and idyllic Hawaiian beaches. By his teens, he was living in the San Francisco area with his father, a Korean Tae Kwon Do Grandmaster. Lee also became an accomplished martial artist and won an athletic scholarship to the University of California, Berkeley.
While in school, Lee worked at the East Bay Asian Youth Centre teaching high-risk teens from neighborhoods not unlike those he had known as a child in the Bronx. It was there that his ongoing commitment to young people began, a commitment that continues to play an important role in his life.
It was also at this time that he became seriously interested in acting, and after landing a role in Nash Bridges he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career. Guest star roles in series such as Profiler and Brimstone led to a role in the TV movie The Disciples for UPN, and soon after to What’s Cooking and TNT’s Witchblade.
The casting of Will Yun Lee is another addition to the star studded cast of COBU 3D. His experience and recognition by the American entertainment industry is sure to assist the interest that’s already swirling around the movie. Do you think that Will Yun Lee makes a good fit for the role of BoA’s brother?
