“You can’t see me right now, but I’m tomato red,” says Justin H. Min. I’ve been on the phone with the breakout star of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy for 30 minutes, talking about the journey leading up to his role as a ghostly superbeing named Ben Hargreeves with the power to summon interdimensional tentacles from his belly, when I reveal my discovery and the source of his embarrassment: his old Tumblr. It’s an intimate journal full of philosophical musings and soul-baring short stories—a record of everything from thoughts on past relationships to ramblings about college. I was struck by one entry in particular, where he admits that he doesn’t care for confidence and intellect. “The single trait I’ve come to admire most in others is humility,” the post reads.

Umbrella is a machine. We have a million people on set at once, we have so many moving parts, and there’s a joy to that. But to be in a movie where there were 30 of us every day in this small house making this beautiful film—it was such a powerful experience.” (Source:

When it was revealed that Justin H. Min would play Ben Hargreeves in the Netflix adaptation of "The Umbrella Academy," fans were excited to see how the actor would portray the tentacle-summoning boy who lost his life on a mission. Ben is one of countless children born in 1989 with strange and fantastic powers, and he's one of the seven adopted by Reginald Hargreeves. Going by the moniker "Number Six," Ben teamed up with his adoptive siblings and fought crime. Following his death, a statue was erected in his honor. During the events of the "Umbrella Academy", Ben is now a ghost, having been summoned by his brother, Klaus. He sticks with Klaus throughout the first two seasons, providing comfort — as well as much-needed truths — to his former teammate. (Source: www.looper.com)

Justin H. Min is a second-generation Korean-American, so it comes as no surprise that the actor is bilingual. Almost two years ago on October 1st, Aidan Gallagher (Number Five) sent two Tweets in Korean. One was a birthday message to "The Umbrella Academy" family — all of the special children were born on that day — and the other teased the possibility of a second season. Min followed suit and replied in Korean, asking "What is this?" This had fans reeling with excitement and began questioning whether Gallagher's Tweet was a result of Min giving his co-star Korean lessons (via Exclusively Hollywood) (Source: www.looper.com)
