So I Married an Anti-Fan
Exclusively on Dramafever! EXO’s Park Chan Yeol (Salut d’Amour, Roommate), Girls’ Generation’s Seo Joo Hyun (Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) and Yuan Shan Shan (Beauties of the Emperor, Palace) star in a South Korean-Chinese collaboration that proves being an idol is actually really hard when you have to live with your biggest anti-fan. Fang Miao Miao (Yuan Shan Shan) is a struggling journalist working for a magazine in Shanghai. One day, she sees the extremely popular Hallyu star Hou Zhun (Park Chan Yeol) at a nightclub. At that time, however, the star in question is in a potentially compromising position with fellow idol Ai Lin (Seo Joo Hyun). Immediately, as is the case with reporters, Miao Miao snaps some pictures. And, as is the case with celebrities whose careers can go south very quickly, Hou Zhun destroys the evidence. However, fearing both the destruction of his image and potential fallout with Ai Lin’s boyfriend and fellow star Gao Xiang (8090 member and Ice Fantasy alum Jiang Chao), Hou Zhun goes a bit overboard and also uses his industry connections to get the struggling reporter fired. Since that day, Miao Miao becomes Hou Zhun’s biggest anti-fan, engaging in protests against him both in person and online. But, as fate would have it, the rivalry between the idol and his most ardent follower actually creates its own fan following, and the two are approached to take part in a reality show where they have to be a couple. Jobless and soon to be homeless, Miao Miao accepts having to live with the man she hates. Eventually, as their physical distances evaporate, their emotional closeness grows. But can this Hallyu idol and anti-fan ever accept each other as partners in life, or will their marriage end up being as fake as reality television?
