Actor Lee Byung-hun, currently starring in the Hollywood blockbuster “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” as Storm Shadow, has joined hands with world-famous fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld in an ad campaign. Also a renowned artist, Lagerfeld will host a photo exhibition in Japan with Lee as his main model. Slated to open for two days starting on September 9, the photo show will be held at Space O in Tokyo under the title “Lee Byung-hun x Karl Lagerfeld.”
Having teamed up for a Japanese beauty site, www.yamanohada.com, the two men met in Paris in mid-April for a shoot. Lee showed off his chiseled physique in front of Lagerfeld’s camera to produce an impressive set of photos. Lee says it’s been a great honor for him to collaborate with such a distinguished figure, because reportedly Lagerfeld very rarely takes photos of a movie star.
