Bruce is an aerospace engineer at SpaceX and is currently engaged with Hyuna. He is a very traditional young Korean man and has very patriarchal views on relationships with women. He expects Hyuna to cook, clean, and have his children after they get married. Bruce is sometimes emotionally abusive towards Hyuna and criticizes her for wanting to pursue photography instead of becoming a doctor, calling her a “bad Asian” for wanting to do so. Hyuna’s parents love Bruce because he fits their mold for what the perfect husband is: Korean and has a good, stable career. All of Bruce’s friends are yappies like him, but Hyuna doesn’t want to live the yappie lifestyle and doesn’t have anything in common with them. Hyuna is very unhappy with her relationship with Bruce, but she wants to make her parents happy by marrying him. Bruce starts noticing that Hyuna and him are drifting apart and becomes increasingly emotionally abusive towards Hyuna due to his insecurities, pushing her further away towards Julio. Bruce loves Hyuna dearly, but cannot properly express his feelings due to his upbringing. Bruce eventually finds out about Hyuna’s feelings for Julio and tries to change his patriarchal views and his emotionally abusive personality to try and win Hyuna back.
