Newbie Ahn Jae-hyun joins You’re All Surrounded

We’ve got more casting additions for SBS’s upcoming cop drama You’re All Surrounded, starring Lee Seung-gi and Go Ara as rookie cops and Cha Seung-won as the veteran detective they drive crazy on a daily basis. Newbie model-turned-actor Ahn Jae-hyun has joined the production, which will only be his second drama ever, after playing Jeon Ji-hyun’s kid brother in You From Another Star. He could not have picked a better drama to debut in, and I totally credit the writer for making his character pop. (Remember when he was just broody and boring, and then he was suddenly obsessed with E.T. and became the cutest geek next door with a personality?)

He’ll be taking a big step up because he landed a role as one of the four main characters in Surrounded, all rookie cops in the same division. (The actor is actually a 1987-er, which makes him the same age as Seung-gi. It’s a little hard to wrap your head around because he just played a high schooler and is so new, but there you have it.) The two guys will have an endless rivalry because they’re the best at everything and also the best looking, though they’ll be very different in personality. Of course they will–you can’t have two Mavericks or two Icemans! It just doesn’t work that way.

Ahn Jae-hyun’s character is a secretive guy who doesn’t talk about himself, and is laid-back about everything in life. He’s described as mature and able to sit back when needed, which pretty much means the inverse will be true of our hero. But that’s not news–when has Seung-gi ever played a character who wasn’t immature?

Also joining the cast is supporting actress Oh Yoon-ah, who was last in Firstborn and Incarnation of Money. She’ll play a tenacious detective with strong convictions, whose personal goal is to pave the way for female cops to work in her precinct without being discriminated against. Well that makes me like her already. Her character is also Cha Seung-won’s ex-wife, and a transfer will reunite their characters at work. There’ll be lots of bickering, I imagine, but hopefully some cute as well.

You’re All Surrounded follows Three Days in late April.

I'm really surprised that he landed a pretty big role for his debut. I liked him in You From Another Star, but for him to jump straight to playing one of the leads with Lee Seung Gi and Go Ara? Hmm...

It reminds me of Lee Jia when she landed a main role in Legends with Bae Yong Joon. Any chance family connections are at play here?

He's from HB entertainment, the company produces this drama and YCFAS. I don't really like him and I don't think he fits for the role, I hoped they chose another actor but too late, we'll see.

Although his role is important being one of the foursome, it's not a lead role unlike LJA in Legends. He could possibly be the second lead, but with both Seung-gi and CSW - I think he's very much in the supporting cast category. Although that's no small feat given he only has one drama for experience and is cast alongside some huge names.

Oh everything about this drama is sounding really good. Really can't wait to see Cha Seung Won on screen again and Go Ara on screen, too.

I also like dorky little brother. Cracked up when he got protective over Min Joon when he found out he had powers. All those young girls trying to impress him and little did they know that all they had to do is bring up E.T.

This drama is shaping up well. Which is great since I'm really looking forward to it. I love the sound of AJH's character. If he is a part of the love triangle with Seung-gi and Go Ara (how can there not be one??) it would be fun to see the dynamics between the three.

I admit I was hoping Seung-gi's character to be a little more low-stated and relaxed with a don't-give-a-damn attitude but since we don't have much info, maybe he'd be somewhat like that... Initially mature? Nah. If that existed in his character, it wouldn't be Seung-gi playing it lol.

I think he's going to be kind of dark and broody. Seunggi said in an interview he's driven by revenge and becomes a cop because of that. That and he's clever.

Dark and broody? I like! He can still be low-key and quiet in this more shadier way. Seung-gi keeps playing the brash, man-child characters, I'd want him to do something more different. Not that he doesn't do the former really well, but variations are always welcomed!

Seunggi's characters are always loud mouthed brats initially, so I hardly think this time there'll be an exception.

His fangirls will attack me when I say this but with this guy and Seunggi standing next to each other, Seunggi will look super old. Lately he's been looking rough, and it doesn't help that Seunggi looks more mature for his age (like Lee Min Ho). And this Ahn guy looks really young for his age.

My opinion though.

0

@Poth - Totally respect that opinion. But... Although I'm no fangirl, I'm disagreeing with that big time. Seung-gi definitely looks a lot younger than his age, which is why quite a few friends of mine wouldn't believe me when I say he's 27 because other than his usual formal fashion, he looks 23 ish. Mostly the main reason I though he pulled the 20-year old Kang Chi character really well.

Also... even if he does look mature like LMH (which I don't find a disadvantage whatsoever) then it would still not make him look "super old". It would just make him look 27; which he is and AJH 18; which he's not.

0

poth - I agree with you in that LSG looked a bit older than usual circa Gu Family Book, but the guy is still pretty young-looking in general, and definitely not quite as mature for his age as Lee Min-ho. Ahn Jae-hyun does look a LOT younger than him, though.

0

Huh? Seunggi is one who looks younger than his age. His image and style is more mature than his age and always has been, but his looks... he looks like a 20 something guy. He looks more adult now, but not "super old". They are playing cops in their 20's. In this guy can't look convincingly look like one, then he's the problem not LSG.

0

@ poth
Perhaps it's because you're not Seunggi's fan that you think he looks 'old'. There are a good number of recent photos of Seunggi looking like he's no older 20. With Seunggi, it's all about his hairstyle.

Saying that, you are somewhat right to say that he will look older an AJH, who looks very much like a teenager. Actually when I read this post by Girlfriday, the first thought that came to my mind was, "Will AJH be able to carry off looking like a 20 something year old cop? It won't be credible if he looks like someone out of high school."

0

@Poth I thought the same initially, that AJH seems to be younger because he's new to the industry whereas LSG is already entering his 10th year in the industry so in that sense he does seem a lot younger than LSG. But if you just imagine them together I think they would look similar in terms of age. I have to say that they wouldn't look like their real age though, if they ever choose to wear high school uniform.

Re: AJH. This guy has plastic surgery though, he before PS is not that young

@others..
I'm a Seunggi fan, albeit a level headed one---I watched all his dramas (exc GFB) and keep up with his activities when I have time to browse through his fansites...granted that, I am also a fan of other k-celebs and if I really was to compare, Seunggi has been looking tired lately, esp during the start of the year, if you were to compare his actual candid pics (not photoshoots), there is a difference.
However, I notice that I used "super old" as the term, so I'd take that back and just put "old/mature" next to this dude.
@the one there (who I suspect is a fangirl of LSG) who said this guy had PS, and that's why he looks young---
No need to judge so fast, certainly no need to put others down to make LSG look better. Seunggi doesn't need that. Besides, I dont think this Ahn guy got PS.

0

@poth lol no, I like LSG but I'm not his fangirl, I'm fan of YWCFTS, that's why I searched about the cast and know this info, I feel amused by this discussion so just let people know more about the person they're taking about. I think ppl can judge themselves, imo, he had PS, big different before & after. This blogger posted it in 2013 when he's noone, it's not like ppl want to bring him down or sth

"She’ll play a tenacious detective with strong convictions, whose personal goal is to pave the way for female cops to work in her precinct without being discriminated against."

The first part of the description is just your basic female-in-a-professional-capacity K-drama role, and is usually code for 'sincere/principled = boring', but that second part, which promises to explicitly acknowledge and explore the intimidating, macho, boys' club environment of these male-dominated professions and her efforts to combat that, makes her character more interesting. My interest is piqued. <3

That depends on how they handle it. Far too often in dramas the lady cop starts off badass, but then 4 episodes later she is following some male cop around like a puppy. If they go there again, I will scream.

It reminds me of the movie Howling where Lee Na Young's character (the lone female prosecutor in a swarm of men prosecutors) was constantly being undermined and told she was too pretty for the job and just...it was awful to watch. She was great, though--movie made it clear she was the only one who seemed to take anything seriously.

I'd be glad if the drama dives more into the issue and shows a lady showing all the dudes what's up.

You're All Surrounded has the right ingredients that i'm betting will be another success for SBS. You've already got big names lee seung gi and cha seung won attached to this project, but then you add actors hot on their heels from popular projects (like Go Ara and Ahn Jae Hyun)..I mean, im picture some good rapport/chemistry amongst the cast who is shaping up real well.
Story-wise we've got room for lots of comedy and entertainment. Hopefully with big growths for our rookie cops and heartwarming moments to go around..

To say im looking forward to this project would be an understatement. I miss you seung gi!

Same here. When I first saw him on YWFTS I was like, "Who's this kid? Probably from the 94liners. Oh nose, not another youngling to fancy. Woe is me." Then a quick Google. Found out that he's from circa '87.-- Well, hello "friend". Thank you genes. Haha!

The whole 4 main leads rookie cops thing, not getting along with their seniors thing kinda reminds me of HK TVB's The Academy series or pretty much all TVB's cop series. That could be perhaps that cop/law enforcement dramas are very popular in HK and most series does follow a similar-ish formula. And it seems to be working since I think TVB spews out a cop series like every year so, why fix something when its not broken? lol.

Anyways, I am super looking forward this this drama. I have yet to watch a cop kdrama before and this even stars puppy Lee Seung Gi! And now with the addition of Anh Jae Hyun, omg so much beautiful on screen haha!!
