Representatives of tvN’s upcoming rom-com Her Private Life have confirmed that Kim Bo-ra will be joining its cast.
Based on the popular web novel Noona Fan Dot Com by author Kim Sung-yeon, Her Private Life follows Sung Deok-mi, played by Park Min-young (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim) who leads a dual life as a professional art curator and an avid idol fangirl. Kim Bo-ra will be playing a fan site owner named Cindy, who is Sung Deok-mi’s rival and also the daughter of the owner of the art gallery where Sung Deok-mi works. Meanwhile, Kim Jae-wook (The Guest) will be playing Ryan, the art gallery’s new director who takes an interest in Sung Deok-mi after learning that she’s a fan site master.
Kim Bo-ra has been on a roll recently, after her tragic role as Kim Hye-na in Sky Castle grabbed the attention of many viewers who praised her portrayal of a cunning and heartbroken 17-year-old. Sky Castle ended its run by becoming the highest-rated drama in Korea’s cable TV history, peaking at 23.8%.
In addition to Her Private Life, Kim followed up Sky Castle with a web drama titled Ghost-derella, where she stars as Min-ah, a girl with the ability to see ghosts.
Kim Bo-ra debuted in 2005 with the KBS drama Wedding, and went on to appear in a variety of dramas including Who Are You: School 2015 and Avengers Social Club (2017). The actress recently moved companies after her contract with Sidus HQ ended. She is currently signed to Moment Entertainment.
Her Private Life will be following Yoo In-na and Lee Dong-wook’s Touch Your Heart in April.
