On March 21, Kim Ha-neul‘s agency Sidus HQ confirmed that she will star opposite Kam Woo-sung in JTBC melodrama The Wind Blows.
The drama will portray the romance between a man and a woman who get back together after a breakup. Kam, who was last seen in Should We Kiss First, confirmed his appearance in the show earlier this month. He will play Do-hoon, a man who gets diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s and divorces his wife Soo-jin out of concern for her future. Kim will take on the role of Soo-jin, who gets a second shot at love with her ex-husband. The drama will focus on the couple’s reunion six years after their divorce. It is Kim’s first drama in three years. Her most recent small screen project is the 2016 series On The Way To The Airport.
Kim Ga-eun, who has won the hearts of viewers through her appearance in the recently-concluded The Light In Your Eyes, will also be joining the drama. She will play Son Ye-rim, a woman who is repeatedly unlucky in romantic relationships but nonetheless remains positive and trusting.
Meanwhile, Kim Seung-cheol (Prison Playbook) has been roped in to play the role of Brian Jung, a talented guy who becomes the CEO of a special effects company while only in his 20s.
The Wind Blows will be helmed by the director of Flower Boy Next Door, Jung Jung-hwa. Its script is written by Hwang Joo-ha who penned both seasons of Mrs. Cop. It is set to air in May, following the conclusion of Welcome to Waikiki 2.
