The Brothers Sun is the latest action-packed Netflix Original series to be released on the streaming service. Mixing high-octane stuntwork with excellent fight choreography and some black comedy, The Brothers Sun is an absolute blast to watch from start to finish. All ten episodes are available to watch now.
Featuring an all-Asian cast, many of whom are newcomers, the series follows the Sun family after the loss of family patriarch Big Sun. Charles Sun must return to his mother and brother in California to keep them safe from their family's many enemies.
Here's a full guide to everyone who appears in The Brothers Sun and who they play.
Sam Song Li as Bruce Sun
Bruce is living a normal life in California with his mother when his estranged brother Charles suddenly returns and flips his world upside down, introducing him to the truth of the Sun family and their crime syndicate connections.
Sam Song Li landed his first series regular role when he got cast in The Brothers Sun, but you've seen in him in guest roles on popular shows like Better Call Saul, Never Have I Ever, and Home Economics.

Justin Chien as Charles Sun
Charles Sun doesn't know much about his mom or brother because he's spent most of his life in Taiwan with his father, a crime boss. But when his father's life is jeopardized, Charles must go to California to ensure his family is kept safe.
Like his co-star Sam Song Li, The Brothers Sun is one of Justin Chien's first big mainstream roles. Previously he starred in, wrote, and produced multiple short films and he had a lead role in the 2023 Pure Flix film Sun Moon.

Michelle Yeoh as Eileen "Mama" Sun
Eileen Sun, or Mama Sun as she's known to her sons, is the Sun family matriarch and while she's been living a relatively quiet life with Bruce in California, she's certainly not to be underestimated.
Michelle Yeoh is the biggest name in the cast as an acclaimed industry veteran who just came off a whirlwind year in 2022 for her leading role in the Oscar-winning movie Everything Everywhere All At Once, which took home Best Picture. Yeoh also won Best Actress. Besides that film, some of her most notable roles include Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Crazy Rich Asians, Tomorrow Never Dies, A Haunting in Venice, The Witcher: Blood Origin, American Born Chinese, Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings, Gunpowder Milkshake, and many, many more.
