Ahn Bo-hyun replaces Lee Kyu-hyung in tvN’s ‘Her Private Life’

Actor Ahn Bo-hyun‘s agency, FN Entertainment, confirmed on February 22 that he will be appearing in tvN’s Her Private Life.

Ahn is set to play Jin Eun-ki, a judo gym instructor with shoulder blades the size of a single bed and chest as hard as a stone wall. Unlike his manly body, however, his face is youthful and fresh like a child’s and he is a softie at heart. He is also the childhood friend of Sung Deok-mi, the show’s protagonist who will be caught in a love triangle with him and her boss, Ryan Gold.

Initially, Lee Kyu-hyung (Life) was to take on the role of Ji Eun-ki but he dropped out at the last minute citing personal reasons.

Ahn Bo-hyun rose to fame with his role in 2016’s mega-hit Descendants Of The Sun. He was last seen in MBC’s Hide And Seek last year, and Netflix series My Only Love Song in 2017. 

Her Private Life tells the story of Sung Deok-mi, played by Park Min-young, a woman who leads dual lives as the curator of an art gallery and an idol fansite administrator. She suffers greatly in her personal relationships due to her fangirl life. Her life changes when her gallery gets a new director, Ryan Gold, played by Kim Jae-wook (The Guest), who takes an interest in her because she’s a fangirl.

Aside from Ahn, the show recently confirmed the casting of SKY Castle‘s Kim Bora as Cindy, another fansite master who will clash with Sung Deok-mi.

Her Private Life will be directed by PD Hong Jong-chan, who worked on the Jo Seung-woo starrer Life in 2018. It will follow Yoo In-na’s Touch Your Heart in April.

As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
