Kim has acted in Taiwanese dramas such as "My Tooth Your Love" and "My Hero, My Daddy".

Out of this world

According to the drama's press release, Rui En plays a 40-year-old career woman who rewatches Korean drama "My Venus Boyfriend" whenever she's going through tough times.

One night, she manages to pull the drama's lead actor -- played by Kim -- out of her TV and convinces him that she is his reel-life lover.

If that isn't confusing enough, Kim plays a second role: the real-life version of himself.

There's a lot more to unpack in the press release, but we'll leave it to viewers to figure things out when the drama airs next year.

"Oppa Saranghae" will be available on demand on meWATCH from Mar. 31, 2023. It will air on Channel 8 from Apr. 12, 2023, weekdays at 9pm.
