Miraculous Brothers

Since there are many K-series on streaming platforms in Thailand, most viewers tend to pay attention to popular ones with well-known actors. Unfortunately, the excellent K-series Miraculous Brothers on Viu Thailand has not received the attention it deserves.

In this detective superpower series, Jung Woo plays Yuk Dong-joo -- an aspiring writer who has to work several part-time jobs to make a living. On a rainy day, Dong-joo is driving home and unintentionally hits a young man named Lee Kang-san (Bae Hyun-sung) who suddenly appears out of nowhere. Dong-joo takes Kang-san to a hospital and discovers that Kang-san, who cannot remember who he is, has uncontrollable superpowers.

Later, Dong-joo finds a fascinating manuscript of a novel in Kang-san's backpack and he claims the manuscript as his own. After the novel is published, it becomes a best-selling book. However, when homicide detective Park Hyun-soo (Park Yu-rim) reads the novel, she notices that its plot is similar to a murder case that happened 27 years ago with different details about the murderers.

When things become more complicated, Dong-joo teams up with Kang-san to solve the mysterious case. Miraculous Brothers has a well-written script and natural acting, but the plot is complex. Viewers have to be focused to follow the details.
