An exciting star-studded lineup for a new drama is currently being discussed!
Earlier today, April 20, media reports revealed that actors Kim Woo-bin (Uncontrollably Fond), Shin Min-ah (Chief of Staff 2), Lee Byung-hun (Mr. Sunshine), Han Ji-min (One Spring Night), Cha Seung-won (A Korean Odyssey), and Lee Jung-eun (Law School) have been cast for Our Blues, a new drama by producing director (PD) Kim Kyu-tae and screenwriter Noh Hee-kyung, the team behind the hit dramas Worlds Within (2008), That Winter, The Wind Blows (2013), and It’s Okay, This Is Love (2014).
In response, Kim Woo-bin and Shin Min-ah’s agency AM Entertainment clarified, “Shin Min-ah and Kim Woo-bin have indeed received the proposals to star in a new drama by Noh Hee-kyung, and we are still reviewing them.” Likewise, Lee Byung-hun and Han Ji-min’s agency BH Entertainment said, “Lee Byung-hun and Han Ji-min have received offers and are positively reviewing [them].” Cha Seung-won’s agency YG Entertainment and Lee Jung-eun’s agency Will Entertainment also said that the two actors are “positively discussing” the offers.
Our Blues will tell the stories of people from different walks of life. Originally, Writer Noh was working on the drama Here, which will tell the stories of people who work at an international non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO). However, the production for Here was temporarily postponed due to the ongoing pandemic and the need to film overseas. Shin Min-ah, Lee Byung-hun, and Han Ji-min have already confirmed to star in the drama, along with Start-Up (2020) star Nam Joo-hyuk, but due to the halt in production, the three actors have been offered to star in Our Blues instead.
Our Blues is slated to begin filming in the second half of the year.
