There’s quite a handful of new K-dramas arriving next week and the first to drop next Monday October 9th is tvN Mon-Tues rom-com This Life is Our First. The drama marks Lee Min Ki’s first drama lead return in ten years since Dalja’s Spring, whereas Jung So Min has been in a drama tear in recent years most recently with the hit weekend drama Father is Strange. These two seem like a quirky lead cast made in drama heaven so hopefully the story and execution makes full use of their nuanced acting talents. Rounding out the cast in what appears to be separate pairings are Park Byung Eun with Kim Ga Eun and Kim Min Seok and Esom. The cohabitation concept and the main character personalities reminds me a bit of recent J-dorama hit Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu (We Married as a Job), and if it’s anything like that then audiences have a treat on our hands.
