[Article] A Comeback Year For Rain, Kim Hyun Joong, Hyun Bin and Kang Dong Won

A few stars are making comebacks this year and so far the year is off to a good start with news of Rain, Kim Hyun Joong, Hyun Bin and Kang Dong Won.

Rain, the star of "Full House," began the year with the release of his new album "Rain Effect" and interviews about his first post-military-duty acting project, "The Prince." He stars in the film with Bruce Willis and John Cusack.

Although Rain recently said that it's harder to dance if he's tired, now that he's in his 30s, he lost none of his moves while serving in the military. The "Rain Effect" songs "30 Sexy" and "La Song" make for a solid comeback. His film "The Prince" does not yet have a release date but is expected to be out this year.

Kim Hyun Joong released his third mini album this summer, which contained the hit single, "Unbreakable," but the "Boys Over Flowers" star has not had more than a cameo role in a drama for three years. He was signed on to play the lead character in the drama "City Conquest" but the drama didn't get a time slot and was indefinitely postponed. Fortunately, he is set to return to dramaland on Jan. 15 with the 24-episode "Inspiring Generation." The drama is set in 1930s Shanghai. It's his first major drama role since "Playful Kiss."

Actor Hyun Bin, who finished his military duty last summer, chose a historical film for his comeback project. In the film "King's Wrath," he plays King Jeongjo, the 22nd ruler of the Joseon Dynasty. King Jeongjo was also called The King of Misfortune and was targeted for assassination.

Hyun Bin has not done a small screen drama project since he appeared in "Secret Garden" in 2010, along with actress Ha Ji Won. He's also famous for his role in the classic k-drama "My Lovely Kim Sam Soon" with co-star actress Kim Sun Ah.

Kang Dong Won finished his military duty in late 2012, and now he is back with two films, "Kundo: Age of the Rampant" and "My Palpitating Heart." "Kundo: Age of the Rampant" is a Joseon-era historical drama is about a band of Robin Hood-style thieves. He co-stars with Ha Jung Woo. In "My Palpitating Heart," he plays the father of a child with progeria, a condition that causes rapid aging. He and his young wife, played by Song Hye Kyo, must grow up faster than the child can age.

"Kundo: Age of Rampant" will be released in 2014, while "My Palpitating Heart" is set to begin its filming this month.

It's a good start, but fans hope to all of these actors in more dramas.
