Will Ahn Bo-hyun Hit Another Home Run in a Webtoon-based Work?

Will Ahn Bo-hyun, who is strong in webtoons, hit another home run?


Actor Ahn Bo-hyun confirmed his appearance in tvN's new drama "See You In My 19th Life" as his first work in 2023.

Ahn Bo-hyun is expected to play a man whom the heroine of the 19th episode of her life must meet in the drama, which deals with reincarnation. It is based on the Naver Webtoon of the same name, a work of writer Lee Hye, who is considered a master.

Ahn Bo-hyun is a particularly strong actor for originals. His filmography, based on webtoons and web novels have a high box office hit rate of content derived from the original. "Dokgo Rewind", the prequel of the webtoon "Dokgo", "Her Private Life", the webtoon "Itaewon Class", and "Yumi's Cells", which came out in two seasons. He's hit home runs in these webdramas with existing originals. In particular, Jang Geun-won and Goo-woong characters in "Itaewon Class" and "Yumi's Cells" cannot be imagined as other actors other than Ahn Bo-hyun.

In addition, after digesting the characters in the original film as his own, his acting skills have improved, and he is stacking his filmography one by one, including "Kairos", "My Name", and "Military Prosecutor Doberman".

Ahn Bo-hyun will once again prove a strong formula for webtoons with his next work "See You In My 19th Life" in the new year. Moon Seo-ha is an image that is weak with a slender feeling played by Ahn Bo-hyun. It is difficult to match Ahn Bo-hyun, who is reminiscent of the health of an athlete. This is why some fans who watched the original movie are arguing about casting.

There is no reason why the drama should be portrayed exactly like the original. If you have to get the same image, you can read the original webtoon one more time instead of the drama. Rather, Ahn Bo-hyun is more curious about how much he will revive his synchronization with the original again this time.

Ahn Bo-hyun suffered from heartache when he was criticized that he did not fit in with Goo-woong in the original work at all when he appeared in "Yumi's Cells". However, following "Yumi's Cells" and "Yumi's Cells - Season 2", there was no doubt that Goo-woong was Ahn Bo-hyun and the controversy over the miss casting went straight into the air. Viewers pointed out Ahn Bo-hyun was the character himself straight out of the original. The same was true of "Itaewon Class". Jang Geun-won's viciousness in the original work was sublimated 120% by acting.

Will "See You In My 19th Life" also prove Ahn Bo-hyun, who is strong in the original? We'll never know until the lid is opened.
