[HanCinema's News] Shin Ha-kyun's Career Takes New Turn as Lee Kwang-soo's Brother on "Inseparable Bros"


Shin Ha-kyun has long had a reputation as a "god of acting" over his twenty year career for the wide variety of his forty odd character roles. In "Inseparable Bros", he takes on yet another unusual role as the physically handicapped Se-ha, who is entirely reliant on his mentally handicapped brother Dong-goo for movement.

"Inseparable Bros" is loosely based on the old Korean folk story The Tale of Shim Chong. As in the story, the titular brothers are not blood relations, an aspect which is designed to emphasize their inherent humanity.

The plot of "Inseparable Bros" centers around how social welfare services takes notice of Se-ha and Dong-goo's unusual living arrangement and mulls over separating the two. While some social commentary is expected over what constitutes a "proper" living arrangement, as a movie "Inseparable Bros" will be relying entirely on the chemistry between its lead actors.

There are some similarities with "My Brother", a film Shin Ha-kyun did with Won Bin some fifteen years ago. Both involved brotherly conflict over a woman. Like "My Brother", "Inseparable Bros" will probably be a tearjerker. "Inseparable Bros" will open in Korean theaters this May.
