Bae In Hyuk Wears Many Faces In New Drama “Why Her?” With Hwang In Yeop And Seo Hyun Jin
SBS’s upcoming drama “Why Her?” has released a sneak peek of Bae In Hyuk in character!
“Why Her?” is a mystery romance drama starring Seo Hyun Jin as the titular Oh Soo Jae, a coldhearted lawyer who has grown empty after only chasing success, and Hwang In Yeop as law student Gong Chan, who would do anything to protect her.
Bae In Hyuk will be starring in the drama as Choi Yoon Sang, a lonely law student who is the son of Choi Tae Guk (Heo Joon Ho), the chairman of Oh Soo Jae’s law firm.
Confessing that he had initially been worried about tackling a new genre, Bae In Hyuk remarked, “Even though I was nervous because [‘Why Her?’] is weightier and has a different vibe from my past work and it’s a genre I’m trying for the first time, it was also really fun.”
As for why he chose to appear in the drama, he shared, “It was fun because there was a lot I could learn from the law school setting and the drama’s subject matter of law, but above all else, I think I mainly wanted to take on this challenge.”
Describing his character, Bae In Hyuk commented, “Choi Yoon Sang is a free spirit who hides his innocence. He doesn’t restrict himself to a mold, and he expresses his emotions freely. He’s a person who’s honest, speaks boldly, and lives his life however he wants.
“Though he’s lived his life like that, he is secretly hiding his own pain, and I think that Choi Yoon Sang’s biggest charm as a character. I didn’t want to depict the character in a cliché way, so I explored many different ways to portray him while also remaining spontaneous.”
In newly released stills from the drama, Choi Yoon Sang wears a variety of faces depending on the situation he’s in. At the back of a classroom at law school, he sports an easygoing smile and exudes a relaxed, carefree air. However, when he’s talking to his father Choi Tae Guk, he becomes visibly stiff, and the look in his eyes changes completely.
“Why Her?” premieres on June 3 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki.
