“Model-dol” Ahn Jae Hyun Cast in “My Lover From The Stars”
“Idol among models” Ahn Jae Hyun has been cast in the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “My Lover From The Stars.”
According to the drama production company HB Entertainment on October 21, Ahn Jae Hyun will play the brother of Hallyu goddess and top star Cheon Song Yi (played by Jeon Ji Hyun).
“My Lover From The Stars” is a “faction” romance drama, taking the sighting of an unidentified object in 1609 recorded in the annals of the Joseon dynasty, as the true historical background on which the writers layer on the whimsical and absurd. It tells the miraculous love story of Do Min Jun (Kim Soo Hyun), an alien who landed on earth 400 years ago during the Joseon dynasty, and rude Hallyu top star Cheon Song Yi.
In the drama, Cheon Song Yi’s younger brother Cheon Yoon Jae is an extremely cynical high school “iljin.” This will be Ah Jae Hyun’s first major drama role.
Ahn Jae Hyun debuted as a model in 2009 and has appeared in fashion shows for designers like Choi Bumsuk, Jung Du Young and Kim Sun Ho, as well as in numerous magazine pictorials. He has received the rookie award modeling award in 2009 and since then has garnered many fans, earning him the title of the idol of models, or the so-called “model-dol.” Ahn Jae Hyun is active not just in the modeling scene, but he also has his artistic side, having launched his own jewelry designer brand (AA.Gban). With acting on the cards, Ahn Jae Hyun seems to be expanding his fields of activity bit by bit.
According to the production company, “With his handsome appearance and defiant eyes, Ahn Jae Hyun was someone whom we had in mind all along for the role of Cheon Song Yi’s younger brother, Cheon Yoon Jae. We thought Ahn Jae Hyun would be just right for the role of Cheon Yoon Jae’s character, with his appearance contrasting with the character’s innocent side.” They also revealed, “We have huge expectations for him. “My Lover from The Stars” will be Ahn Jae Hyun’s first major drama role, and we expect he will be able to show a fresh take on things.”
“My Lover from The Stars” stars Kim Soo Hyun, Jeon Ji Hyun, Park Hae Jin and Ahn Jae Hyun and is scheduled to broadcast in December.
