Shin Ha Kyun and Choi Jung Won Develop a Love-Hate Relationship
Shin Ha Kyun and Choi Jung Won began their love-hate relationship for the KBS’s upcoming drama, Brain.
Shin Ha Kyun plays a role of Lee Kang Hoon, neurosurgeon, a graduate from the country’s most prestigious medical school, with cold and prickly personality, while Choi Jung Won acts as Yoon Ji Hye, a neurosurgeon who is always cheerful and positive.
On the first shoot, which carried out at a general hospital in Seoul, the two leads had their first encounter. Even though the characters Lee Kang Hoon and Yoon Ji Hye had known each other for a long time, as they′d attended the same medical school, they gave off uneasy and chilly air.
While Yoon Ji Hye looked at Lee Kang Hoon with loving and sorrowful eyes, Lee treated her in a cold and indifferent manner. The two’s contrasting attitudes raised curiosity on the relationship and history between the two, and how things might unfold in the future.
The drama will tell the story of how Lee Kang Hoon′s one-track mind, which is centered on simply achieving unsurpassable success, soon makes room for Yoon Ji Hye. Lee has been described as a doctor who wants the accolades and fortune without committing to the mission of actually caring and saving lives. On the other hand, Yoon Ji Hye is fully committed to her profession as a doctor.
Shin Ha Kyun and Choi Jung Won, who teamed up in the drama for the first time, reportedly got along with each other incredibly well, while Choi Jung Won brightened the atmosphere on set with her bright and positive personality much like her persona in the drama.
An official from the drama’s production company CJ E&M said, “The expectations for the drama are growing as Shin Ha Kyun and Choi Jung Won vibe well with each other and both are very committed to their acting. We hope viewers will show their support for the drama, which will provide the portrayal of a tough love story and dramatic amusement unfolding against the background of realistic settings.”
The medical drama Brain will premiere on November 14 after Poseidon wraps.
