Upcoming K-Drama Our Blues has confirmed possibly the most stacked main cast ever for a K-Drama, with Lee Byung Hun, Shin Min Ah, Kim Woo Bin, Han Ji Min, and more confirmed to join the cast.
The production team of Our Blues confirmed the main cast of the show, confirming Lee Byung Hun, Shin Min Ah, Cha Seung Won, Lee Jung Eun, Han Ji Min, Kim Woo Bin, and Uhm Jung Hwa as the K-Drama’s lead roles. Our Blues will be led by famed writer Noh Hee Kyung, who most recently wrote for tvN‘s Live.
Our Blues is about life in general, sharing stories of people in all stages of their lives, whether it is the beginning, middle, or end. Against the Jeju Island backdrop and both its warm city and harsh waters, various characters will tell their stories in an omnibus format.
Lee Byung Hun will play the role of Lee Dong Seok, a Jeju-born general store owner for truckers. He’ll transform into a more haggardly looking man living in rural Jeju.
Shin Min Ah will play the role of Min Seon Ah, a woman with a backstory who moves to Jeju Island and ends up working alongside Lee Dong Seok.
Cha Seung Won will play the role of Choi Han Soo, a man who returned to his hometown of Jeju after becoming the perfect city man.
Lee Jung Eun will play the role of Jeong Eun Hee, the owner of a fish store who is reunited with Choi Han Soo, her first love who is back after 30 yeras.
Han Ji Min will play the role of Lee Young Ok, a rookie diver. She came from the city and is bright and pleasant, but also carries many rumors alongside her.
Kim Woo Bin will play the role of captain Park Jung Joon, a warm natured man who meets Lee Young Ok while searching for a woman who will not leave Jeju.
Uhm Jung Hwa will play the role of Go Mi Ran, a woman who returns to Jeju after a difficult time living in the city.
Our Blues is a work written by star-writer Noh Hee Kyung and produced by Kim Kyu Tae. The pair worked together on Worlds Within and That Winter, the Wind Blows. Many of the actors in Our Blues were actually slated to appear in Noh Hee Kyung’s work Hear. However, Hear was based on an NGO and required a lot of overseas filming, which turned out to be impossible due to the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, Lee Byung Hun, Kim Woo Bin, and Han Ji Min all readily agreed to appear in Noh Hee Kyung’s new work instead.
Our Blues is scheduled to air in 2022, and the broadcasting platform has not yet been decided.
