Our Blues, starring Kim Woo-bin, Shin Min-ah, and Lee Byung-hun, will be streaming on Netflix from April 9. To the great enthusiasm of the fans, this would be the first time that their favorite couple Woo-bin and Shin Min-ah would have played in the show, even though they were not in the same frame. Writer Noh Hee-Kyung talked about the casting and why they didn’t act together as a romantic interest. Kim Woo-bin and Shin Min-ah have been dating since 2015, but have shared more personal information about each other.
At a press conference, Noh answered a question on the subject and replied: “I knew they would not join the show if they were cast as a couple. When I cast them, they didn’t look like a couple, they would have a romantic relationship with someone else. I wanted to cast them because they are great actors. They are cool and professional. ” Kim Woo-bin also revealed his reaction when he learned of the cast of the show: “I was really nervous. I’m in this project with older actors that I really look up to, and I was excited. It doesn’t always happen to be in a project with such experienced actors. “
The series records the stories of various characters who live on Jeju Island. Lee Byung-hun plays the role of Lee Dong Suk, a man who was born and raised in rural Jeju Island and who makes a living selling trucks. Shin Min-ah plays alongside Lee Byung-hun as Min Sun Ah, a woman with a secret. Han Ji-min plays Lee Ong-eye and Kim Woo-bin’s essay Park Jung-joon, the man who falls in love with her. Our blues is an omnibus format that differs from most K-dramas.
