Adapted from Webtoon by Lee Hey – What is The Storyline?
Furthermore, if the new drama storyline follows the original webtoon series, “See You in My 19th Life” will tell a story about a woman who remembers all the lives she had lived before. She’s currently living her 19th life with all the memories intact from every moment of all her past 18 lives, only to meet someone special to whom she had to say goodbye during her 18th life.
Shin Hye Sun as Ban Ji Eum
In “See You in My 19th Life”, Shin Hye Sun will be starring as Ban Ji Eum, a woman who has the ability to remember all her past lives.
Once she turns 10-12 in every life she’s living, all the memories from all her past lives will start appearing, and today she’s born again in her 19th life only to find someone from her previous life, Moon Seo Ha.
Ahn Bo Hyun As Moon Seo Ha
At the same time, Ahn Bo Hyun will be playing the male lead, Moon Seo Ha, in “See You in My 19th Life” new webtoon drama.
Moon Seo Ha is the heir of a chaebol family. When he was a child, Seo Ha briefly stayed in the house of her mother’s friend and met her daughter, Yun Ju Won. During the time his mother was battling her disease, Seo Ha and Ju Won grew closer and more fond of each other. And after his mother’s death, Ju Won was the one comforting Moon Seo Ha and cheering him up.
Then one day, during a trip to an amusement park, Seo Ha and Ju Won got into a terrible car accident. Indeed, Seo Ha managed to survive. However, the car accident caused a horrible trauma within him because he had to watch closely how Ju Won had died while protecting him.
Little did he know that Yun Ju Won was actually Ban Ji Eum in her 18th life. The 12-year-old noona Moon Seo Ha fell in love with has been reborn today with the name of Ban Ji Eum.
Shin Hye Sun Will Be Playing Multiple Roles Once Again
If she agrees to take on the role, actress Shin Hye Sun will be playing multiple roles once again in this new webtoon-adaptation drama.
The first role is the main character, Ban Ji Eum, who’s living her 19th life with a solid determination to find Seo Ha, the 9-year-old child she fell in love with during her 18th life.
Ban Ji Eum came from low-income family background and had to struggle all her life. Her dad was an alcoholic, and her mom left her when she was four years old. So she had to fight hard in this life while taking care of her brother, who was out of control. But in the end, she managed to stand out as a prodigy: intelligent, talented, and gorgeous from head to toe.
She did it all to stand out so she could properly find Seo Ha.
Next, the second role she had to play was Yun Ju Won, the daughter of a wealthy family who died in a car accident while she was young. The webtoon showed Ju Won as a mere 12-year-old, but who knows if the drama will later reveal the adult version of the character.
Finally, since the main character has lived a total of 19 lives, it is highly possible that she would recall memories of previous lives, which means we will be able to see Shin Hye Sun’s rich character spectrum once again in this new webtoon-adaptation drama. And this is something you definitely cannot miss!
The HUGE Main Issue: Ahn Bo Hyun Casting in “See You in My 19th Life” New Webtoon Drama
Now, the huge issue revolving in “See You in My 19th Life” is the casting of Ahn Bo Hyun in this new drama. Why? Because all this time, Ahn Bo Hyun’s image has always been that tall reliable man with dark skin and a profound muscular body.
Almost in all dramas he’s been working on, Ahn Bo Hyun has always been that steamy muscular male character who seems strong, sturdy, and reliable.
However, that is NOT the case with Moon Seo Ha.
The Image Clash Issue Between Ahn Bo Hyun and Moon Seo Ha in the New Drama
As the son of a chaebol family with a traumatic past of losing her mother and first love, Moon Seo Ha is perceived as someone elegant and fragile. He has a little bit of laid-back character with easy emotional triggers, especially when it involves his traumatic past.
Besides, Ahn Bo Hyun’s dark skin and muscular body do not seem to fit the physical traits of Moon Seo Ha at all. That is because Moon Seo Ha physically has pale skin and a slim body with brown hair. Therefore, fans started demanding the production team be more careful with their casting process.
Other actors that fans believe to have suited Moon Seo Ha’s character are Yang Se Jong, Seo Kang Joon, and Yook Sung Jae of BTOB.
