This week Age of Youth 2 says farewell, and we, hopeless romantics, will once again become lost and have no idea what to watch next.
Luckily for us, next week signals the start of another great romance drama that just might become your new favorite show. Here are 5 reasons you’ll fall in love with upcoming drama ‘Because This Is My First Life’!
1. Jung So Min & Lee Min Ki will be playing the lead couple.
Lee Min Ki has strayed away from the romance genre during recent years but before then, he has shown us his charming side many times. He captured our hearts in the film ‘Spellbound’, and drama ‘Dal Ja’s Spring’. After witnessing Jung So Min’s sizzling chemistry with Lee Joon in My Father Is Strange it’s no surprise that she’s in demand! These two established actors aren’t new to the romance genre, and we’re sure everybody is excited to see what they have to offer!
2. It’s a rom-com featuring our favorite rising actor Kim Min Suk.
This actor has been on the rise. After coming to the spotlight from his role in ‘Descendants of the Sun’, and even winning the New Star Award for his role in ‘Doctors’, Min Suk is slowly raising in popularity. We’ve recently seen him in ‘Age of Youth 2’ where he whoos~ the mysterious new roommate, Jo Eun. He’s shown us his smooth skills on getting the ladies, and we can’t wait to see him take on a bigger role.
3. This is the first show Min Ki and Min Suk have starred in together since ‘Shut Up! Flower Boy Band’.
We’re getting the band back together! Or that’s what it feels like. ‘Shut Up! Flower Boy Band’ was well-known for its pretty boy cast. It was also the beginning of Min Suk‘s career, and the last drama Min Ki acted in before going to the big screen. That show no doubt played an important role in both of their careers, thus it’s indeed exciting to see these two starring together in another show after 5 years. It will be interesting as well to see how much they have changed.
4. Directed by Park Joon Hwa; written by Yoon Nan Joong
If you aren’t familiar with the first name, Park Joon Hwa is a drama director whose recent works include ‘Let’s Eat’, ‘Let’s Fight Ghost’, and ‘Hogu’s Love’. The credible director has managed countless top shows, and ‘Because This Is First Life’ probably won’t be much different. He’s previously worked with Yoon Nan Joong as she was the genius behind the quirky romance ‘Hogu’s Love’. We’re certain this duo won’t disappoint us.
5. It’s being aired on TvN.
Besides the ‘Bride of the Water Good’, TvN has held its reputation, and released countless popular shows. ‘Goblin’ being it’s #1 show, but other great romances such as ‘Chicago Typewriter’, ‘Introverted Boss’, and ‘Deserving of the Name’ have been released this year. TvN has proven its delivering romance dramas that viewers will surely love! ‘Revolutionary Love’, another highly anticipated drama starring Choi Shi Won and Kang So Ra will also be airing around the same time.
Because This Is My First Life will begin airing on October 9th. Check it out and let us know what you think!
