Fact 1: Hyun Bin as Hyuk
Kim Seung-chan as teenage Jeong-hyeok was so good that he beat out Hyun Bin in a competition of who would portray young Ri Jeong-hyeok. When they had to make a decision, director Han Jae Ho went with Kim instead. I watched both Ojakgyo Brothers and On Air (the tv show) before I saw DMZ. Despite not being his usual role, Hyun Bin was still fantastic in those dramas. His portrayal of immature, sometimes jealous and petty Kook Sun in Ojakgyo Brothers had me laughing hard even when he was ‘faking’ crying with his thumbs covering his eyes.
Fact 2: Supporting Cast
Kim Seung-chan, Lee Chun-moo : While more popular in recent years, Hyun Bin rose to international fame thanks to his role as a renegade North Korean Special Forces officer in KBS’s Iljimae. Aside from The King and I, he starred alongside Song Hye-kyo in SBS’s Secret Garden and next to Han Ji-min in MBC’s romance drama, Time Between Dog and Wolf. His upcoming film projects include an action thriller with Ha Jung-woo called Inside Men, an adaptation of Japanese manga author Suihō Tagawa’s hit series of novels.
Fact 3: Song Hye-kyo as Soo-hae
Soo-hae is portrayed as an emotionally damaged woman who lost her family in a North Korean air raid. However, she has spent much of her life deep undercover living as an entertainer at a nightclub in Osaka, Japan. We will learn that Soo-hae actually had no familial connection to North Korea other than her father who was a Southern sympathizer and brought her up along with his own daughter in Osaka after he made his way across DMZ following its collapse. While undercover, Soo-hae grew to understand both cultures and have affection for both South and North Koreans. Her dream of reunification manifested itself into a love for Hyun Bin’s character which makes her later plot line involving Lee Chun-moo’s character all the more difficult to resolve.
