Ahn Bo Hyun Keeps on Working as He Signs on for K-drama Gold Spoon About a Chaebol Heir Who Becomes a Major Crimes Detective

He’s coming back soon in the fantasy romance drama See You in My 19th Life with Shin Hye Sun as an emotionally damaged gentle young man role but he’s already lined up his next drama Gold Spoon, not to be confused with the MBC drama in 2022 of the same name. In Gold Spoon he plays a third generation “golden spoon” chaebol heir who becomes a hard hitting detective in the major crimes unit. He used his wealth to fight crime, being even richer than the baddies to nab them. Sounds like a great use of generational wealth haha.
