Sooyoung, Choi Tae-joon to fall in love for So I Married an Anti-fan
Sooyoung, Choi Tae-joon
Singer-actress Sooyoung (Man Who Sets the Table) is lining up her next project, and it looks like it’ll be a project called So I Married an Anti-Fan. If the title sounds familiar, it’s because it’s also the name of a Chinese movie from 2016 starring Exo’s Chanyeol, Yuan Shanshan, and Sooyoung’s own Girls Generation groupmate Seohyun. Both the Chinese movie and this new K-drama series are based on the best-selling manhwa and novel of the same name.
The plot of the 16-episode series centers around a reporter who goes out to interview a Hallyu star, runs into conflict with him, and ends up getting fired from her job. She blames him for her losing her job and becomes his anti-fan, and somehow ends up living in the same house as him… and romance ensues. (Only in K-drama! Gotta love it.)
Sooyoung is up to play magazine features reporter Lee Geun-young, while Choi Tae-joon (Suspicious Partner) has been tapped to play Hallyu star Hoo-joon. (There were briefly some murmurings a few months ago that Jaejoong was in contention to star in the drama, but he denied those rumors right away.) Geun-young’s job at the magazine encompasses all manner of menial and miscellaneous tasks, and her team plans feature stories “like pitchers on a baseball team” — so, throwing out random ideas and hoping they work. Geun-young believes in her talent and has a strong sense of justice that has gotten her caught up in other people’s problems with some regularity. Hoo-joon, on the other hand, is six years into his career and at the pinnacle of success in the K-pop industry.
So I Married an Anti-fan will be directed by PD Kang Chul-woo of 1% of Anything (which I loved) and My Secret Romance (which made my insides shrivel up in embarrassment, although I did still watch it all); it will be written by SNL Korea writer Nam Ji-yeon. It does not yet have a broadcaster or an airdate.
