Park Min-young, Park Jin-ju forge fangirl friendships in tvN’s Her Private Life
New stills have been released for tvN drama Her Private Life featuring Park Min-young (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim) with Park Jin-ju (Boyfriend).
Park Min-young plays the central character of the drama, Sung Deok-mi, who is a successful art curator by day. Outside of her professional life though, her time is devoted to her idol crush: Cha Shi-ahn (played by real-life singer ONE). And she’s been blessed to be part of a trio of friends who share and support her passion for fangirling.
Park Jin-ju plays the role of Lee Sun-joo, who’s been friends with Deok-mi since high school. The two are fangirl soulmates and fellow comrades in the intense fandom battles for all the best tickets to concerts and live performances. They are also co-presidents of Cha Shi-ahn’s fan site, which they run together. Called “Shi-na-gil”, it’s an abbreviation in Korean for “Shi-ahn is my path”.
The newly released stills show Park Min-young and Park Jin-ju doing what their characters love best, fangirling. In the top photo, the two are looking at something on the phone with concern – presumably bad news about their idol crush. The other two photos show both characters on standby, waiting for the perfect moment to take photos.
Completing the trio of friends is Ahn Bo-hyun (Dokgo Rewind) who plays Nam Eun-ki. He’s known Deok-mi since birth and the two grew up together like real siblings. Although he himself is not a fanboy, he has been the brains behind Deok-mi and Sun-joo’s fangirl adventures and is well-versed in fandom history. Still, one could say that he does have a number one in his life and it has always been Deok-mi.
Writing for the drama is writer Kim Hye-young with PD Hong Jong-chan (Life, Most Beautiful Goodbye) directing.
I’m sad that there aren’t any new stills of Kim Jae-wook (The Guest). But, I am happy to see Park Jin-ju cast in this drama. She’s always been a great character actor, particularly with comedies, and I hope she really delivers with this role as well!
Upcoming rom-com Her Private Life is set to premiere next week on April 10, and will be airing Wednesdays and Thursdays on tvN.
