While female fans may have swooned over Hyun Bin's bulked-up bod on his latest film "The Fatal Encounter", Hyun Bin himself expressed his disappointment at the majority of the audience's reactions to the film.

On May 12, Hyun Bin sat down for an interview with OSEN, wherein he said, "I am a bit upset by how the audience reacted to the film. I think there's a difference in perspective.

He continued, "After the press conference [for 'The Fatal Encounter'], there were already bad reviews but I haven't seen the movie at the time so I didn't know how I'd respond [to the comments]. But after I watched the movie, I thought there was some sort of misunderstanding. I'm not saying this just because it's my movie. I just think the audience [and I] has a difference in perspective."

"Different people have different points of views. I think the movie might make people feel betrayed, especially those who closely followed the character of Jung Jo in the drama series and other portrayals. But since the beginning, the director's intention was to show the character himself to the people. That's why the movie needed so many flashbacks."

"After the movie was released, I became a bit upset because I  thought the movie should have put a little basic information on the storyline since there were fictional aspects that were added onto [something based on a] historical event. But because there wasn't [an introduction of sorts], I think that's why people got disappointed. For instance, people might say, 'Why is the grandmother so young?' and it would pose a complete difference in perspective. I think the director is upset about that, too.

He added, "When I decided to do this movie, I knew from the beginning that this movie wasn't entirely about Jung Jo. And although the fictional aspects were added to actual historical events, the film is about each character's life and destiny mixed together. So if the film were to follow only Jung Jo's emotions, I think people will get disappointed about that as well. I think it would've been better if people went to see the movie knowing more facts [about history]."

Meanwhile, "The Fatal Encounter" premiered in theatres on April 30 and garnered high box office ratings.
