The new JTBC series Behind Your Touch has teased fans with a glimpse of the comic chemistry between the psychometric veterinarian Bong Ye Bun (Han Ji Min) and the passionate detective Moon Jang Yeol (Lee Min Ki).
Behind Your Touch is a comic detective drama revolving around a diligent vet with the newfound psychometric ability to see the past of both humans and animals, and an elite detective who needs her power to return to the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.
Han Ji Min expressed her comfort working with Lee Min Ki. She said, “We needed to keep our energy levels high during filming, and Lee Min Ki’s flexibility made it comfortable.” She praised him as a mature actor with a generous spirit and added, “I think Ye Bun and Jang Yeol’s relationship is like Tom and Jerry; they quarrel but always stand by each other. As they continue their investigation together, they naturally learn about each other’s pains and provide comfort.”
Lee Min Ki reciprocated the sentiment, stating, “Working with Han Ji Min was truly enjoyable as our rhythms aligned well. I adored the character Bong Ye Bun. I was completely taken by the Ye Bun that Han Ji Min brought to life. I’ve never seen such a charming character in other works.”
Ye Bun and Jang Yeol’s intriguing and ingenious cooperation will be peppered with comedic performances by quirky characters, including the mysterious convenience store part-timer Kim Sun Woo, played by Suho.
Han praised her co-star Suho, saying, “Suho works very hard. His passion was inspiring to both Lee Min Ki and me. Seeing him grow through filming made me want to put even more passion into my performance. He is truly an energizing actor. I look forward to working with him on other projects.” Lee Min Ki echoed the praise, saying he was deeply moved by Suho’s commitment to his role.
Meanwhile, Behind Your Touch will premiere at 10:30 PM KST on August 12th as a follow-up of King the Land.
