Kim Bo-ra to join ‘Her Private Life’ as Park Min-young’s rival

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.

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.
