Ahn Bo Hyun In Talks To Join Kim Go Eun In New Drama Adaptation Of Hit Webtoon
On March 10, an industry representative reported that the actor has been offered a role in “Yumi’s Cells” and is currently at the last stage of discussion.
In response to the report, his agency FN Entertainment clarified, “It is true that Ahn Bo Hyun received an offer to star in ‘Yumi’s Cells’ as Goo Woong. He is positively reviewing [the offer].”
Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “Yumi’s Cells” will tell the story of an ordinary office worker named Yumi – from the point of view of the many brain cells in her head controlling her every thought, feeling, and action.
It has been confirmed that Kim Go Eun will take the role of Yumi. If Ahn Bo Hyun agrees to star in the drama, he will play opposite her as Goo Woong, a man who is nonchalant about everything but is actually a romanticist and will eventually form a romantic relationship with Yumi.
“Yumi’s Cells” is scheduled to begin filming sometime in the first half of 2021. It will be helmed by Lee Sang Yeob, the director of “Familiar Wife” and “Shopping King Louie,” and co-written by “Memories of the Alhambra” writer Song Jae Jung, “Find Me in Your Memory” writer Kim Yoon Joo, and newcomer Kim Kyung Ran.
Ahn Bo Hyun debuted in 2007 as a model and debuted as an actor in 2014 through the drama “Golden Cross.” He appeared in many dramas after that, and some of his most memorable ones are “Her Private Life,” “Itaewon Class,” and “Kairos.”
