Daniel Henney

Post by Uuree34 » Dec 29th, '06, 11:07

Guys plz post everything that you know about Daniel Henney!
One of the reason why I started watching his dramas was cuz he went to same school as I did, and with Basketball scholarship. Wooooooooooow right? So if there are any Daniel Henney fans out there shout out loud please?

Henney started modeling in the U.S. in 2001 and has worked in France, Italy, Hong Kong and Taiwan. After his debut in Korea last year with an advertisement for the men's cosmetics line Odyssey, his face became better known in commercials with Jeon Ji-hyun for Olympus cameras and Kim Tae-hee for Klasse air conditioners. He only made the leap to drama with "My Name is Kim Sam-soon."



Henney is of mixed extraction, born to an ethnic Korean mother who was adopted in the U.S. and an Anglo-American father. His Busan-born mother speaks no Korean since she was sent to the U.S. at the age of one. In the drama, it's delicately revealed that the mother of Henney’s character is also an adoptee.

Casting producer Kang Dae-seon said, "Originally, Henry Kim was supposed to be a Korean adoptee, but listening to Daniel's story, we made his mother an adopted child instead."

But no one was happier than Daniel’s mother when he started working in Korea. "When I came to Korea to appear in the drama, my mother cried. She calls me every day to ask what the weather is like and to ask if I'm acting well. My mother is full of feeling, just like a Korean." He said she plans to come to Korea soon to find her biological parents. Her quest will be televised.



A Korean phrase meaning, "Don't take me for granted" which Henney's character somewhat inarticulately yelled after learning it from Chung Ryeo-won's character, has become something of a fad. In reality, Henney's Korean is slightly better than his character’s. When he settled in Korea three months ago, he knew absolutely no Korean, but now has no problems ordering food at a restaurant. "I've been to many nations around the world, but none have been as comfortable a home as Korea. It seems it's like that because it's my mother’s country.” Henney has vowed to study Korean hard and become active as a “true Korean.”

^ If you see Daniel on Korean TV interviews and appearances, he seems to be able to understand a LOT of Korean, and can speak some too.

Is it ture that he is "Dating" Maggie Q? If it is true, then Maggie Q finally have found her ideal boyfriend, like she mentioned a long time ago in an interview " My ideal man is Takeshi Kaneshiro", Daniel Henney is also a mixed, and speaks at least two languages ( English, and Korean) and little bit of German ( Austrian) right? Moreover handsome, and with great facial features, and nice bod!

hmm..i dun think so tht he has a korean name but maybe if he has, its a direct romanization of his english name, i suppose. well talking about the dvd cover, it depends, because there are many dvd versions of the MNIKSS (the front cover varies). but i think he's on the front cover it. there are 2 guys on the cover, mainly daniel henney and hyun bin. but it depends actually.

This is totally wrong of me since this is a fan-base topic for Daniel Henney, but he such an awful actor. When I watched Spring Waltz (great drama minus Daniel Henney), I was so embarrassed by his acting that I had to fast-forward every scene he was in. He's great eye candy and that's why he getting roles, but come on... looks can only get you so far. Gosh. He should sick to modeling and stay out of the acting arena.

Sorry folks!!

The guy who's in Witch Amusement is Dennis Oh (or Dennis O'Niel). Some say that Daniel Henney and Dennis Oh look alike.

DANIEL HENNY IS SO MUCH HOTTER THAN DENNIS O'NIEL . i don't see how people can compare them.. like dennis o'niel isn;t bad looking or anything. hes kinda cute. but daaaammmn daniel henny is just undescribable. even though dennis o'neil is way better in korean than daniel is.
and yeah daniel henny can't act all that well but his upcoming movie ( my father ) looks really good. like he actually looks like he improved.
