One of the upcoming spring 2019 Korean dramas I am looking forward to watching is the romantic comedy-drama "Her Private Life" starring Park Min Young and Kim Jae Wook.
This drama revolves around Sung Deok Mi (played by Park Min Young), who leads a double life as a curator at an art gallery and as a fangirl who runs a website out of her affection for the idol group member Shi-An. Then Ryan Gold (played by Kim Jae Wook) comes to work as the director of the art gallery where Sung Deok Mi works. He used to be a famous painter but no longer paints and holds no interest in other people's lives until he becomes interested in Sung Deok Mi's life when he finds out about her double life and slowly falls in love with her.
Why am I so excited about this drama? As a fan of Kim Jae Wook, I am happy to hear that this is his first main lead role! Not to mention, he is starring this drama with the lovely Korean actress Park Min Young, who is not only my favorite Korean actress but is also one of the best talented and beautiful actresses who is known for playing great romantic female leads!
In addition, we get to see a different side of Kim Jae Wook. Kim Jae Wook, who is recently known for playing serious roles as the serial killer Mo Tae Gu in the thriller drama "The Voice" and the exorcist Choi Yoon in the supernatural thriller drama "The Guest," finally gets a break from all that cold-hearted seriousness for he is given a more light-hearted role in the drama "Her Private Life." And since "Her Private Life" is a romantic comedy-drama, it'll be great to see how Kim Jae Wook unwinds himself to build up titillating romantic chemistry with Park Min Young in the drama. In order to do that, he'll have to bring back the sexiness he oozes from the previous romantic comedies he has starred in, such as "Temperature of Love," where he plays a rich businessman, along with the 2007 hit series "The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince" where he plays the hot Japanese waffle-maker, and as the genius pâtissier of demonic charm in his first film "Antique."
Does this drama appeal to you? Please give it a try by taking a glimpse of the first episode airing on April 10!
