Two of the hottest rising stars of today, Lee Do-hyun and Go Min-si, have perfectly pulled off the ’80s look in their first sets of stills from the highly anticipated drama Youth of May.
Set during the Gwangju Uprising that happened in May 1980, Youth of May centers on the love that blooms between two young people amidst a chaotic and uncertain time.
In his still cuts, Lee Do-hyun successfully gets into character as the medical student Hwang Hee-tae. He wears a formal attire and an equally serious expression in one photo, while he exudes a playful vibe and dons a brightly colored plaid shirt in the other. His visibly contrasting moods hint that although he has the reputation of an easygoing and mischievous guitar guy, his academic record as a consistent top student in Seoul National University’s College of Medicine can also speak for itself.
Meanwhile, Go Min-si also seamlessly melts into her role as the nurse Kim Myung-hee. She has a pair of slightly sad but fierce eyes, which could be a reflection of the many hardships that she has gone through at a young age after she left her home to start an independent life in Gwangju. Bravely carrying the weight of her cap on her head, Nurse Kim has already handled all sorts of difficult situations in the maternity ward yet she has never backed down from any of them.
Lee Do-hyun and Go Min-si previously starred together in Netflix’s Sweet Home (2020), and because of their great synergy in the said fantasy-thriller series, expectations are now firing up for their onscreen chemistry as young lovers in Youth of May.
Slated to air as a Monday-Tuesday drama, Youth of May will premiere on KBS2 this May 3, replacing River Where the Moon Rises.
