To be quite honest, I’ve recently been struggling a little bit with Korean dramas because I’ve been getting a little bored. I don’t like crazy makjang but I also love angst. And the romantic comedies I was watching weren’t delivering on the angst so they weren’t quite working for me. Will this?
Her Private Life is something I think a lot of us fangirls can relate to – being a sane professional by day and an insane fangirl by night.
The synopsis from AsianWiki:
Sung Deok-Mi (Park Min-Young) works as a curator at an art gallery. She is a huge fan of idol group member Shi-An and secretly runs a fan website about him. Because of her affection for Shi-An, she has experienced several personal break-ups. Sung Deok-Mi now focuses only her job and doing activities as Shi-An’s fan in her private life. One day, Ryan (Kim Jae-Wook) begins work as the new director of the art gallery where Sung Deok-Mi. He was once a famous painter, but he does not paint anymore. Ryan doesn’t have much interest in other people, but he happens to learn that Sung Deok-Mi is a fan of Shi-An and runs his fan website. Ryan takes an interest in Sung Deok-Mi.
When I first read this, I thought: “Is Ryan Shi An?” because that would be a fanfic come to life. But no, he’s just another previously famous person who falls for someone else’s fangirl. Perhaps he’s intrigued by her passion? We’ll see.
Here’s the preview:
It’s nice to see Kim Jae Wook (Coffee Prince, Voice) in a leading, romantic role and Park Min Young (Healer, What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?) is always fun to watch so this could be a cool drama.
Based on a novel, it’s written by Kim Hye Young and directed by Hong Jong Chan (Live Up to Your Name, Dear My Friends).
Her Private Life premieres on tvN on April 10th.
