K-Drama has its new eye candy and he’s in town for a limited fan event to celebrate a career milestone. Yes, South Korean actor Jung Hae-In is finally getting the attention he deserves.
It took four years before he debuted with his first lead role in JTBC Entertainment drama Something in the Rain that wrapped up in May.
He first came out in television drama series as Choi Kang In in Bride of the Century (2014) as a cold son of a haunted family. Then, he appeared as Joo Hyun Woo in Blood, a genius and Pennsylvania Medical school graduate that tries to find a cure for his friend-turned-brother Park Ji Sung (Ahn Jae-hyun).
Later in 2016, he portrayed the role of Yoo Seo-joon in Yes, That’s How It Is and earned him the “New Star Award” at the 2016 SBS Drama Awards. Then he showcased a character of a commanding officer who was framed for killing his own team member in Prison Playbook in which he won as Most Popular Actor in the Baeksang Arts Award that same year.
Not long after, Hae-in broke his zone by landing on hit SBS drama While You Were Sleeping as second lead with fellow Korean heartthrob Lee Jong Suk. He portrayed Han Woo Tak a colorblin police officer who fell in love with Nam Hong-joo (Bae Suzy).
Considering that this was his first melodramatic role, he shared that he directed all of his emotion and attention to his character through encouragement to his leading lady; that led him to push his limits as an actor in which excites him.
