Kim Jae Wook is off to a great start playing his first lead role in “Her Private Life”!
On April 10, tvN’s “Her Private Life” aired its first episode. Kim Jae Wook definitely killed it, playing the stoic, prickly, and unemotional gallery director, Ryan Gold. Here’s why it’s easy to fall for Kim Jae Wook’s character.
He has the perfect image to be in a romantic comedy
Kim Jae Wook perfectly plays the role of Ryan Gold. His fine facial features, tall height, and perfect body ratio immediately grab the attention of viewers. Kim Jae Wook’s facial expressions, fashion, and other physical characteristics also match well with Ryan’s character.
His arrogant, prickly, but still heart-fluttering personality
His sweet return in a romantic comedy from being a psychopath in his previous drama, “Voice,” is quite a change. However, Kim Jae Wook creates an appealing character with his sharp glare, accent, and arrogant way of talking. In the drama, when he says, “The title of this work of art is Ryan Gold, do you want it?” Kim Jae Wook most certainly stole our hearts with this character.
His unexpected charms
Ryan is spotless and perfect when it comes to most things, but he has some flaws of his own. We can’t help fall in love with Kim Jae Wook’s character as he shows us serious moments as well as comic ones. The airport scene with all the idol fans and the subway scene of him riding the tightly packed subway during rush hour show Kim Jae Wook’s comedic moments despite his serious personality.
“Her Private Life” is about a gallery curator named Sung Duk Mi (Park Min Young), who moonlights as an idol fangirl, and a stoic gallery director named Ryan Gold (Kim Jae Wook), who starts to become a fanboy of Duk Mi.
