Lee Min-ki and Jung So-min have been confirmed to play the leading roles in a new tvN drama This Life Is Our First which is set to premiere in October. The upcoming rom-com drama aims to depict in a realistic way the problems facing today’s generations and how young people view jobs, relationships, and marriage.
This Life Is Our First marks Lee Min-ki’s return to the small screen after his 10-year hiatus. He last played a leading drama role in Dalja’s Spring which aired from January to March 2007 and he has been seen previously five years ago on Shut Up Flower Boy Band playing a cameo role. The actor is back to play Nam Se-hee in the new tvN drama. His character is described as a man in his 30s who has a degree in design and works at an IT firm.
Meanwhile, Jung So-min will be playing the role of Yoon Ji-ho, a ‘homeless’ woman in her early 30s who has given up on dating guys due to financial problems. For the same reason, she has to share a room with Nam Se-hee. The actress is currently starring in KBS’s weekend drama, My Father Is Strange.
This Life Is Our First will be directed by Park Joon-hwa of Let’s Fight Ghost and will be written by Yoon Nan-joong who penned Ho-gu’s Love in 2015 and The Queen of Office in 2013. It will air in October after the end of Argon, which is set to take over Bride of the Water God in the first week of September.
