Sin Ha-gyoon is living a second wave of stardom with the drama "Brain", his first TV acting job in eight years.

While SBS's "A Thousand Days' Promise" is falling back a little, KBS 2TV's "Brain" is showing signs of a ratings increase. The battle between Sin Ha-gyoon and Jeong Jin-yeong in the sixth episode rated its best viewing percentage of 11.8%. The firm storyline is a large factor of the drama's popularity, but another reason is the attraction of actor Sin Ha-gyoon. A genius who overcame hardships and became a doctor, Sin Ha-gyoon reminds us of Kim Myeong-min from "White Tower" and Lee Beom-soo from "Surgeon Bong Dal-hee".

Sin Ha-gyoon is being praised in the press on "Brain" as well. New phrases like 'Ha-gyoon ache', 'My heart is Ha-gyoon' and other trendy catchphrases are being made everyday, proving how popular this actor is. Several fans state, "I want to buy the car he advertises", "I am going to live in the apartment he advertises" and so on to help him get good advertisement deals as well.

Initially, Sin Ha-gyoon had joined the cast a week before the actual shooting as a substitute for Song Seung-heon. As it is a medical drama, the technical terms and other things he had to get used to could've been a burden on him, say several officials.

One person said, "It must've been stressful for Sin Ha-gyoon. He could've lost everything he'd worked for in the last 13 years if he didn't do well. Even Song Seung-heon had stepped down for the reason that there wasn't enough time to prepare. Despite the risk, Sin Ha-gyoon showed he could quickly adapt, and it can be said that he is a seasoned actor".
