List of Ahn Bo Hyun Movies and TV Shows:  

Ahn Bo Hyun made his acting debut in 2014 and starred in many minor roles up until his breakthrough appearance in “Descendants of the Sun” (2016). He played a recurring role as First Sergeant Im Gwang Nam, as a member of the special forces team led by main actor Song Joong Ki. Although “Descendants of the Sun” was a worldwide success that brought Ahn to the attention of the general public, he still struggled to make ends meet and worked odd jobs after the series ended. During this time, Ahn continued to pursue his acting dreams and managed to get supporting roles in idol drama “Wednesday 3:30 PM” (2017) and the suspenseful melodrama “Hide and Seek” (2018).


In 2018, Ahn got his next big break with the main role in the Viki Original web series “Dokgo Rewind” (2018), based on a popular webtoon of the same name. Ahn played a wrestler in the series, starring opposite EXO’s Sehun and Gugudan's Kang Mina, and fellow rookie actor Jo Byeong Gyu.


Since the success of “Dokgo Rewind”, Ahn has scored even more memorable roles including a supporting role in the hit romantic comedy “Her Private Life” (2019), and lead roles in fantasy thriller “Kairos” (2020) and the romantic comedy “Yumi’s Cells” (2021). His performance in “Kairos” won him the Best New Actor award at the 2020 MBC Drama Awards, and his turn as the awkward yet innocent game developer Goo Woong in “Yumi’s Cells” got him worldwide attention thanks to his chemistry with Kim Go Eun who played his girlfriend Kim Yu Mi in the drama.
