I know, I know, I’m a sucker for all romantic crap, including super romantic, guardian-like characters like Bae Soo Bin’s “Brilliant Legacy” character, Jun Sae. Though this is my first encounter of this very charming guy, I admit there are some things that I’m not exactly sure why he’s so attractive. His acting is not really up there yet. He hasn’t me completely in awe like I was with Hwang Jung Min’s potrayal of Gu Dong Baek in “Accidental Couple”. But yet, after watching a marathon of 찬란한 유산 episodes, I’m totally hooked and… ermm… smitten. *shy* (lol)
His name is 배수빈 Bae Soo Bin (33). Not-so-new actor, apparently. He has appeared in a few dramas before “Brilliant Legacy” such as: When a Man is in Love (SBS, 2004), Sea God (KBS, 2004), Fashion 70’s (SBS, 2005), Let’s Marry (MBC, 2005), The Book of Three Han (MBC, 2006), Woman of Matchless Beauty, Park Jung Kum (MBC, 2008), and The Painter of the Wind (SBS, 2008).
In the recent episode of “Ya Shi Man Man” 야심만만 airing on June 30, he confessed that he’s actually in a relationship with a long-time girlfriend whom he knew back when he first debuted in 2004. (Lucky gal!) They’ve been dating ever since, and when “Brilliant Legacy” hits 30% ratings, she got a little worried. Although things can get a little ’shaky’ (his word), but there’s nothing to worry about, he said. And last scoop is that his girlfriend is a regular office worker, not a celebrity.
Bae Soo Bin in Ya Shi Man Man:
Park Chul owns VOID, a private-owned hair-styling studio. He recently opened an exhibition, “The Faces” (photographed by Baek Sung Hyun) featuring famous celebrities such as Bae Soo Bin, HwanHee, Brian, Eugene, Hwangbo, Wheesung, and many others. You can see more pictures from this site. And he’s also the man behind Bae Soo Bin’s gorgeous ‘feather perm’ hair in “Brilliant Legacy”. Ah, no wonder~ ;)
