New streaming television drama So I Married an Anti-fan has announced its simultaneous release in 190 countries worldwide.
The pre-produced series is slated for global release via iQIYI, Viki, Naver TV, and V-LIVE on April 30 at 6 p.m. KST, with new episodes every Friday and Saturday.
So I Married an Anti-fan is a romantic-comedy series that follows international K-pop sensation Hoo Joon (Choi Tae-joon, The Undateables), who finds himself living with magazine reporter Lee Geun-young (Sooyoung, Run On), his no.1 anti-fan.
Its story begins when the two meet under unpleasant circumstances, which results in Geun-young getting fired from her job. Thinking that Hoo Joon had something to do with it, she decides to make a public protest in front of his management office until she unexpectedly receives media coverage. A producing director (PD) approaches her and asks if she wants to appear in a reality program in which top stars and their anti-fans live together. She goes for it because of her current financial difficulties. Hoo Joon gets the same offer and accepts it to improve his image. While on the show, they try to give each other a hard time, but their hearts end up harboring romantic feelings instead.
The drama is based on a popular 2010 novel of the same title by writer Kim Eun-jung, which was translated and published around Asia, including China, Indonesia, and Thailand. It has also been made into a comic and got adapted into a Chinese film.
So I Married an Anti-fan is helmed by director Kang Cheol-woo of Rugal (2020) and co-penned by screenwriter Nam Ji-yeon and source material writer Kim.
