Hoo Joon (Choi Tae Joon) is one of South Korea’s biggest entertainment industry stars. He is attending an event at a new night hotspot. Aspiring young magazine reporter Lee Geun Young (Choi Sooyoung) is dispatched to the opening, where she inadvertently witnesses some rough and rude behavior from Hoo Joon – and then proceeds to throw up all over him by mistake. The magazine later decides to fire her, and she assumes Hoo Joon orchestrated her dismissal. Outraged, she decides to mount a one-woman protest outside the offices of the star’s entertainment agency. The media picks up on her demonstration and she becomes known as his number one “anti-fan.” The opportunistic production team of a new variety show decides to capitalize on Lee Geun Young’s sudden notoriety. The producers meet her to tell her about their concept: a star who is forced to live with their biggest “anti-fan.” Lee Geun Young is hesitant at first, but losing her job has left her broke and the appearance fee is high enough to drive her to accept. Hoo Joon isn’t that keen on the idea either. But a sudden dip in his popularity forces him to reconsider – and leads him to believe the show will offer him a chance to redeem himself in the public’s eyes. However, when they start living together, the odd couple slowly starts to realize they are actually a good match for one another...but could romance bloom on this unconventional and very public stage? This drama was based on a 2010 novel of the same name by Kim Eun Jung. “So I Married the Anti-Fan” is a Viki Original South Korean drama released in 2021 and directed by Kang Cheol Woo.
