American-Korean star Daniel Henney will feature as a mutant alongside Hugh Jackman in movie “X-men Origins: Wolverine”, which is set to release in mid-2009.

The film is directed by Gavin Hood and is a prequel to the X-Men movie trilogy, focusing on the mutant Wolverine and Team X, before his skeleton was bonded with the indestructible metal adamantium.

Daniel will star as Agent Zero (also known as David North), a member of the Weapon X program and an expert tracker with lethal marksman skills. It should be a cool character, but I wonder if Daniel’s fans would cherrish the role as his face would probably be unseen for the whole movie.


The 6th Korean Film Awards was held last Saturday (Dec 1) in Seoul. “Secret Sunshine” (밀양; Milyang) was the biggest winner of the night, bagging the best movie, best director (Lee Chang-dong), best actor (Song Kang-ho) and best actress (Jeon Do-yeon) awards.

Daniel Henney Biography

Daniel’s father is an American of British (some say Irish) descent while her mother an American of Korean descent. He was a basketball player and attended colleges on scholarship; and admitted into University of Illinois at Chicago.

Daniel didn’t graduate from university though; he decided to quit his study and ventured into modelling in 2001 instead. He started modelling in Korea as well as some other Asian and European countries.

Daniel was already an established supermodel before making his acting debut in 2005… first in some cameo roles for “Hello Franceska”, before making his full debut with “My Lovely Sam Soon” the same year.

Sam Soon is the most popular Korean drama in 2005; although Daniel was starring as the supporting actor, his performance (and look) was widely notice.

Daniel then starred in another decent drama “Spring Waltz” in 2006; he also made his movie debut “Seducing Mr Perfect” but the movie didn’t perform very well on box office. His 2nd movie “My Father” (2007) did much better though.

Seducing Mr Perfect however revealed another of Daniel’s talent… singing. He sang the ending theme song together with Alex from boyband Clazziquai. I wouldn’t be surprised if Daniel managed to ink a recording deal and releases his album soon.
