Actress Ahn Hee-yeon (EXID Hani) heralds the charm of ‘outside the skin’.
In the original wave drama ‘You Raise Me Up’ (8 episodes, hereinafter ‘You Me Up’), which will be released on the 31st, Ahn Hee-yeon takes on the role of Lee Ru-Da, a urologist who met her first love Yong-sik (Yoon Shi-yoon) as a patient.
Runaway teenagers, announcers, game BJs, etc., who is continuing her extraordinary acting career, is expected to further expand her spectrum this time. This is because she is challenging her first comedy genre with a rare urologist character.
Ahn Hee-yeon also said, “Because of Ru-Da’s job, there were many new things I learned and experienced through this work. Those parts will approach viewers in a different way.” She also revealed the process of approaching the character delicately for the sake of the work. “Unlike her impeccable appearance, Ru-Da has a childish, soft, and loose side. The charm of Ru-Da, mentioned by Ahn Hee-yeon, is ‘outside and inside out’. It was deep-fried and coated in a thick batter, but there was something incredibly moist inside. This is the reason why I am more curious about her acting, which embodies the charm of tempura, which many people like.
Above all, ‘You Me Up’ is a work that drew attention with the unique setting of meeting Ru-Da’s first love, Yong-sik, who was remembered as a “really cool hero” as an erectile dysfunction patient at her hospital again. “I am reunited with my first love, who has become like a pitiful puppy after getting lost and getting hit by the rain. Ahn Hee-yeon, who revealed the reason for choosing the work, said, “I wanted to experience the ending of those two characters directly from the perspective of the main character Ru-Da.”
“In the end, standing up is your own choice, and what the person next to you can do is to wait, cheer, pray, celebrate and rejoice together.” But through the process, “You also make me grow (but also, You raise me up!)” Ahn Hee-yeon said that she sympathized a lot with the message of the work. Lastly, she left a request, “I hope you will join us in that lively and pleasant process.”
