Chansung and Han Ji-an round out love square in So I Married an Anti-Fan
I feel like it’s been awhile since we’ve had a good ol’ love square in dramaland. Chansung (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim) and Han Ji-an (The Vanished, Compatibility) join previously confirmed Sooyoung (Man Who Sets the Table) and Choi Tae-joon (Suspicious Partner) in the upcoming rom-com So I Married an Anti-Fan.
The Korean adaptation of the manhwa/novel-turned-Chinese-film follows the budding romance between a reporter and a top Hallyu pop star. Sooyoung will play the anti-fan reporter, Lee Geun-young, who turns against her former idol when she loses her job following an interview gone wrong. She and Choi Tae-joon’s character Hoo-joon, the top K-pop star, somehow end up cohabitating and bickering their way into love.
Chansung’s role, JJ, sounds like a formidable rival to Choi Tae-joon’s in both work and love: As a second-generation chaebol and head of an entertainment agency, JJ schemes to ruin Hoo-joon’s career as a result of his jealousy of the top star’s fame and relationships. His possessive nature will hit its peak when self-styled number one anti-fan Lee Geun-young appears in his and Hoo-joon’s lives. I’ve never seen Chansung take on a villainous role, so I will be interested to see if he can pull off an antagonist character.
Actress Han Ji-an, who isn’t exactly a rookie but has been in minor roles in both film and TV projects, will play B-list rookie Oh In-hyung under JJ’s management company, who is eyeing a comeback in showbiz. It sounds like she’s part of the reason for the rift in JJ and Hoo-joon’s friendship, and is caught between her former love for Hoo-joon and her ambitions to become successful in the industry. I haven’t watched any of the projects Han Ji-han is credited in, so I’m not entirely sure what to expect about her performance, but let’s hope she’s up to the task.
So I Married an Anti-Fan will be partially pre-produced, and will be simultaneously broadcast in South Korea and 160 other countries.
