Bae Hyun Sung On Similarities With His Character In Upcoming Mystery Drama, Learning From Co-Star Jung Woo, And More

Bae Hyun Sung has relayed his thoughts ahead of the premiere of his new drama!

JTBC’s “Miracle Brothers” (literal translation) is a mystery drama centering around Yook Dong Joo (Jung Woo), an aspiring writer with tons of debt, and a mysterious boy named Kang San (Bae Hyun Sung), who has unique powers. The story focuses on the process of creating miracles that go beyond the limits of time.

Bae Hyun Sung stars as the mysterious Kang San, who loses his memory after a car accident and forgets even his name and age. But when he awakes at the hospital, he discovers that he has developed the mysterious ability to personally feel others’ pain and despair, as well as see their memories and emotions. Although others may just try to block this out, Kang San makes it his responsibility to stand up against injustice and use his ability to help others.

On playing a character with such a righteous attitude, Bae Hyun Sung commented, “Since he’s someone with the ability to discern that what’s bad is bad and what’s wrong is wrong, I tried to add persuasive power to the character through a strong and firm gaze and honest emotions.”

Bae Hyun Sung then revealed that he was charmed by Kang San’s “kind, innocent, and bright personality that reminds one of a bright green spring, as well as his strong determination that is not easily influenced.” He elaborated, “I also listen to my friends’ stories well and laugh and cry with them, so I was really emotionally immersed in Kang San’s ability to empathize.”

When asked what he would do if granted the same power as Kang San, Bae Hyun Sung shared, “Like Kang San, I want to help those who are having a hard time because of worries they cannot speak about.”

Despite clearly being the perfect fit for the role of Kang San, fulfilling his first lead role was a separate hurdle for Bae Hyun Sung to overcome. Explaining that he overcame this pressure with the help of his co-star Jung Woo, Bae Hyun Sung commented, “At our first script practice, I remember being in awe watching Jung Woo’s acting. Once we began filming, he gave me a lot of compliments and advice. I also learned a lot of his comfortable and flexible acting. That’s why I tried to follow him well.”

The actor continued, “All the staff members on set, including the amazing director Park Chan Hong, were outstanding. That’s why I believe ‘Miracle Brothers’ will remain as a miracle-like project for me. It was a happy time where I learned and felt a lot.”

Recalling his first impression of the drama, Bae Hyun Sung shared, “When I first received the script, I was amazed to the point where I automatically said ‘wow’ and read it in one go. I felt a wide variety of emotions and shed some tears.”

He added, “Everyone harbors difficult emotions like pain, sadness, and anger. In this drama, Kang San heals those emotions, Dong Joo joins this journey, and they become ‘Miracle Brothers.’ I hope viewers will shake off their difficult emotions along with brothers Dong Joo and Kang San of the drama and that the miracle you’re hoping for comes.”

“Miracle Brothers” premieres on June 28 at 10:30 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser here!
