Kim min-seok is still busy with his ongoing drama Age of Youth 2 but he has already signed on as one of the cast members of the upcoming tvN drama, This Life Is Our First. The series will deal with the problems facing today’s generations and how the present-day youth view the realities of life concerning jobs, romantic relationships, and marriage.
Lee Min-ki and Jung So-min were confirmed earlier this month to headline the show, and now Kim Min-seok has been confirmed to play the role of Chung Won-seok, a typical engineering student expected to bring about a fresh vitality to the drama. He is described as a young man with an ‘innocent personality’ who has undergone a change after meeting college student Yang Ho-rang, played by Kim Ga-eun (Reunited Worlds).
Meanwhile, Lee Min-ki (Dalja’s Spring) is up to play “house-poor” Nam Se-hee, a man in his 30s who has a degree in design and works at an IT firm, while Jung So-min (My Father Is Strange) will be playing ‘homeless’ woman Yoon Ji-ho who has given up on dating guys due to her financial status. The two will become housemates and will eventually fall in love with each other despite their self-made promise not to date anyone.
About two weeks ago, the production team of the drama confirmed the casting of Esom (White Christmas), Kim Ga-eun, and Park Byung-eun (Mystery Queen) in the drama. Esom and Kim Ga-eun will be playing as best friends of the heroine while Park Byung-eun will be playing the CEO of the IT company where Lee Min-ki’s character is working.
Kim Min-seok is currently filming for his ongoing drama Age of Youth 2 which premiered just three days ago. He is expected to start working for This Life Is Our First right after the filming for Age of Youth 2 is completed. The drama will be directed by Park Joon-hwa of Let’s Fight Ghost and will be written by Yoon Nan-joong of Ho-gu’s Love. It will air on Mondays and Tuesdays in October after Argon ends its run.
