Choi Jin-ho in Extraordinary You
Korean drama fans are again getting a new spectacle, titled Extraordinary You. The drama, starring Kim Hye-yoon and SF9’s Rowoon, is based on a webtoon that has the same title. Extraordinary You has a unique premise where the protagonist, Eun Dan-oh (played by Kim Hye-yoon) realizes one oddity in her life: that she is a manhwa (Korean comics) character.
At first, Eun Dan-oh thought she was the main character, but she eventually had to swallow up disappointment. The reason is, she turns out to be only a small character whose role is limited. The main stars of this manhwa, are Yeo Joo-da (played by April’s Naeun) and Oh Nam-joo (played by Kim Young-dae). Eun Dan-oh didn’t want to be disappointed for a long time. Instead, she began to search for her own destiny, against the wishes of the manhwa writer.
Eun Dan-oh is described as having had a crush on the son of her father’s business partner, Baek Kyung (played by Lee Jae-wook), for 10 years. Baek Kyung himself, is one of the top three students in his school called A3. However, Eun Dan-oh fell in love with a side character in the manhwa codenamed No.13 (played by SF9’s Rowoon), who was later given the name Ha Roo.
Two other A3 members, such as Oh Nam-joo and Lee Do-hwa (played by Jung Gun-joo), are involved in a love triangle with Yeo Joo-da. This relationship also shows a mysterious character, Jin Mi-jae.
Choi Jin-ho was present as one of the actors in MBC’s Extraordinary You which was broadcast in October–November 2019 as Baek Dae-sung, the father of Baek Kyung (played by Lee Jae-wook) who has a rude and arrogant character because he lives in a family that doesn’t care about him.
On October 29th, 2019, actor Lee Jae-wook who plays Baek Kyung shared behind-the-scenes photos of shooting Extraordinary You with Choi Jin-ho who plays Baek Dae-sung, which were uploaded on his personal Instagram page.
