Perfect K-dramas to binge on Ahn Hyo-seop’s bday


01/6Business Proposal, A Time Called You and more: Perfect K-dramas to binge-watch on Ahn Hyo-seop’s birthday

As Ahn Hyo-seop blows out the candles on his 29th birthday cake, it’s the perfect time to eye some of the on-screen roles of this charming archaeopteryx (if you know you know)! Leaving behind the maple syrup and hockey sticks of his Canadian childhood, Ahn made a bold move back to Korea at the age of 17. While he initially pursued a business degree, destiny had other plans as he found himself drawn to the siren call of acting. Since his debut in 2016’s rom-com ‘One More Happy Ending’, Ahn has graced our screens in a myriad of hit Korean dramas. Today, let’s raise a toast to the birthday boy and revisit some of Ahn Hyo-seop’s most memorable series!


02/6Dr. Romantic Season 2 & 3

Set in the quaint Doldam Hospital, this ‘real doctor’ tale follows the journey of Kim Sa-bu, a once-famous surgeon turned chief at the rural medical facility. However, as challenges mount – from the loss of Chairman Shin to the return of an old adversary – Kim Sa-bu’s resolve is tested. With his former students departing and his own health deteriorating, Kim Sa-bu takes it upon himself to address the staffing shortage at Doldam Hospital by going to a larger medical facility. There, he encounters individuals who bear a resemblance to his former students but exhibit notable deficiencies. Seo Woo-jin (Ahn Hyo-seop) demonstrates a willingness to prioritize financial gain over ethical considerations, while Cha Eun-jae (Lee Sung-kyung) struggles with surgical procedures, experiencing nausea at every attempt. Ahn Hyo Seop continues to take the lead role in its third season as well.


03/6A Business Proposal

Shin Ha Ri (Kim Se Jeong), a single woman working for a company, finds herself in an unexpected situation when her friend asks her to stand in for her on a blind date, offering payment for her time. With little intention other than to be rejected by her date, Shin Ha Ri agrees. However, her plans take a surprising turn when she discovers that her blind date is none other than Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyo Seop), the CEO of her workplace. Kang Tae Moo, a dedicated workaholic frustrated by his grandfather’s matchmaking efforts, decides to marry the next woman he meets on a blind date to put an end to the interference. Unbeknownst to him, that woman is Shin Ha Ri, masquerading as her friend, setting the stage for a series of comedic misadventures.


04/6A Time Called You

In the time-slip romance ‘A Time Called You’, inspired by the beloved Taiwanese drama ‘Some Day or One Day’, Jeon Yeo Been stars as Jun Hee, a woman grieving the loss of her boyfriend. In a twist of fate, she finds herself transported back to 1998, inhabiting the body of high school student Min Ju. There, she encounters Si Heon, played by Ahn Hyo Seop, who bears a striking resemblance to her late boyfriend. As Jun Hee navigates this unexpected journey through time, she becomes entangled in a love triangle with Si Heon and In Gyu (Kang Hoon), who harbors unrequited feelings for Min Ju.



In the fantasy drama ‘Abyss’, childhood friends Go Se Yeon and Cha Min, portrayed by Park Bo Young and Ahn Hyo Seop respectively, are tragically murdered but resurrected through a mystical stone known as the Abyss. However, their second chance at life comes with a twist as they return in completely different bodies. Go Se Yeon, originally a revered prosecutor played by Kim Sa Rang, finds herself in a new form, while Cha Min, a wealthy heir characterized as a ‘visual terror’ and played by Ahn Se Ha, undergoes a similar transformation. Together, the duo sets out to uncover the identities of those responsible for their deaths.


06/6Lovers of the Red Sky

In the midst of the Joseon Dynasty’s rigid societal norms, Hong Chun Ki (Kim You-jung) defies expectations as a gifted painter, despite being born blind. Her extraordinary talent earns her a spot at the prestigious art college, challenging traditional gender roles. Alongside her, Ha Ram (Ahn Hyo-seop), an astrologer with a unique ability to foresee the future despite his own blindness, crosses paths with her. Both Hong Chun Ki and Ha Ram find themselves entangled in the affairs of two princes: the spirited Prince Yang Myung and the ambitious Prince Joo Hyang, whose ruthless desire for the Joseon throne fuels his scheming nature.
