Ma Dong Seok spent his younger days in America and graduated from Columbia State University. Before he got into acting, he was an MMA trainer and bodybuilder.
Afterwards, Ma Dong Seok participated in a meeting with creators to discuss possible Hollywood projects.
An affiliate commented, "We do receive calls from American production companies from time to time, regarding drama/movie offers."
Ma Dong Seok recently received an offer to star as a superhero from Marvel Studios, however, he had to decline due to his conflicting schedules. Ma Dong Seok is very loyal and it is important to him to keep trust/faith. He couldn't betray contracts and obligations he already had with Korean producers and productions.
