The Total Variety Network (tvN) will soon debut a brand new romcom, Her Private Life. K-drama fans of What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim? are looking forward to it as it marks Park Min-Young’s return to romcoms after her previous success.
A sophisticated art curator in public, rabid fangirl in private
According to the synopsis provided by tvN, Her Private Life (Geunyeoui Sasaenghwal) is a romantic comedy. It stars Park Min-Young and Kim Jae-Wook.
Sung Duk-Mi (Park Min-Young) is a very intelligent and sophisticated art curator at a gallery. However, she has a huge secret: she’s the biggest fan of One (Cha Shi-An) and his K-pop boy band, White Ocean. Duk-Mi keeps her fandom private, even from her boss, the new director of the gallery she works at, Ryan Gold (Jae-Wook).
Things get interesting when Ryan Gold starts to fall in love with Sung Duk-Mi. The closer he gets to her, the closer he gets to discovering her private life.
Romcoms mean something to the actors
K-drama fans are looking forward to seeing Park Min-Young and Kim Jae-Wook work together in Her Private Life. For starters, being on a rom-com might mean something different for each of them.
For Park Min-Young, she found a huge amount of success alongside Park Seo-Joon in What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim? It was her first role in any comedy series and it dominated in viewership both domestically and internationally.
As for Kim Jae-Wook, he’s been starring in melodramas the last three roles he’s taken. Both Voice and The Guest were suspense melodramas and Temperature of Love was a romantic melodrama. It will be a breath of fresh air to see Jae-Wook in a comedy.
