Jung Yong-hwa plays the role of Shin Haru, a brain neuroscientist with a ‘very special brain’ who has everything, perfect looks and splendid speech, but lacks humanity in ‘Brain Works’. Cha Tae-hyun plays the role of detective Geum Myung-se, who has a warm and caring ‘altruistic brain’, the opposite of the cold-hearted Shin Haru.
The two-person poster released on the day showed Jung Yong-hwa and Cha Tae-hyun escaping from an emergency scene. The polar atmosphere between Jung Yong-hwa and Cha Tae-hyun drew attention. Haru Shin wears his shoes in a stylish black suit, and lifts up Geum Myung-se as ’embracing the prince’ with his treasured eyes cast.
On the other hand, Geum Myung-sae is wearing his sneakers in his casual rider jacket, and holding Shin Haru’s neck tightly with a happy expression on his face. Seriousness and comedy were harmonized in the appearance of these two people.
Here, the phrase ‘the brain will save you’ added above the two people’s heads suggested the connection between the criminal investigation and the brain. In addition, as the phrase ‘brain collaboration to realize justice by meeting with malice’ was added, expectations were raised about what kind of activity Shin Haru and Geum Myung-se would perform in the future.
- Brain Works will replace Curtain Call.
