Lee Byung Hun, Shin Mina, Kim Woo Bin, Han Ji Min, Cha Seung Won, and Lee Jung Eun Offered the New Noh Hee Kyung Drama Our Blues

Looks like Here is out and Our Blues is in. Award winning screenwriter Noh Hee Kyung was prepping a new drama announced last year called Here based on people working overseas in NGOs but the production and filming continued to get pushed back due to travel restrictions during the pandemic. Vincenzo got around that by making the Italy scenes very brief, around 15 minutes in episode 1, and filmed it all on green screens in South Korea with deft CGI. But Here was set solely overseas so that’s not going to work, and now writer Noh Hee Kyung has announced a new drama titled Our Blues and cast is some of the same names signed on earlier to Here. Lee Byung Hun and Shin Mina will be playing a couple, as will Kim Woo Bin and Han Ji Min, and I’m dying of laughter over the two pairings. The first played a brother-sister pair in classic Hallyu hit Beautiful Days, not to mention Kim Woo Bin is dating Shin Mina in real life but they won’t be in this drama. Also cast are Cha Seung Won and Lee Jung Eun, and I expect the main cast to add 1-2 more big names as well as this is an ensemble work. With that, I’ve loved so many Noh Hee Kyung dramas I will watch this no matter what.

  2. Wasn’t Nam Joo Hyuk signed for Here too? I remember thinking that was the 3rd time he and Han Ji Min were together in a PJ. I hope he’s also up for this.

    But more importantly. Yes. To. Kim. Woo. Bin.

    🎉🎉🎉🎉

    Also, my god what a crazy fantastic cast. How in the world can they afford this for a drama and how huge will this be!?! They even added CSW (who seems to be doing a double this time with That Night also filming currently)

    • That was another project from the same writer which needs a lot of overseas shooting, so it cannot be done now. Some of the cast agreed to this project instead. I think NJH preferred the drama with KTR or maybe schedule conflict.

      • Yea it seems like they’ll be shooting soon so it’ll probably clash with the KTR drama. Tricky. I think both would be good projects for him. Pretty sure KWB took his place. I’m thinking this is a 4-lead (5?) drama rather than the traditionally 1st/2nd lead situation. Something like Producers I guess.

        Anyway, I love this outcome too so let’s see! 🤞

  3. Love the power cast. It’s going to be epic. Now this is the epitome of professionalism from SMN and KWB. Real life bf/gf but none of the drama of KHJ & SYJ train-wreck relationship. Imagine if there are some hot kissing scenes btwn KWB & HJM & LBH & SMN. It’ll be like business us usual. My hats off to them.

  4. I get turned off with an all A-list cast for some reason lol and I am probably one of the few people who are not fond of any NHK’s dramas.

  5. I was happy to know that a real life couple is going to star here…Only to know that they will be partnered with other actors..What a bummer.. especially when Shin Minah will be paired up with Lee Byung Hun..😒
    Han Ji Min is a senior and A list actress and will act against KWB…So she will be playing second lead role to Shin Minah??
    I think K-ent is still not ready for real life couple to act as lovers..
    Anyways, the cast over all is amazing…And It’s Okay That’s love is one of the best dramas that i have seen..I am excited for this.

      • No she has never been as big star Shin Minah, Han Ji Min has done more dramas recent years but never big hits on the level of Shin Minah. Shin Minah is also a movie star with many films. It is like saying NJH is bigger star than Lee Byunghun,Kim Wo Bin because he has some decent dramas,some bad ones about water Gods.

      • @Moham..What??..Like I love Shin Min Ah..but Han Ji Min can’t be compared to Nam Joo Hyuk ..She is an A-lister doing well in dramas and movies.. Especially for Ms Baek, she won Best actress award ..
        Besides, Dazzling was a critically acclaimed drama..

  6. No she has never been as big star Shin Minah, Han Ji Min has done more dramas recent years but never big hits on the level of Shin Minah. Shin Minah is also a movie star with many films.

      • You are drunk if you think the industry in SK will think Shin Min Ah has done some weaker project the 5-6 years but HJM has done one acclaimed drama, many generic rom coms playing the pretty FL means that they will dismiss the fact Shin Min Ah has done movies,dramas that was popular since early 2000s. She starred with Lee Byounghun in A bittersweet Life, one of few great films that won awards western film festivals. When she was 21. The pretty leads of rom coms can’t compare to movie stars. Like the female lead of Vincenzo,Park So Dam,Kim Go Eun etc young actresses who has few dramas but acclaimed movies.

      • Ironically for Tomorrow With You, Han Ji Min was first offered the FL before Shin Min Ah. This was before Miss Baek’s success, and her awards wins from it. I think both are on the same field career wise. They are also around the same age, and has worked in the business around the same time too.

  7. What a fancy cast this is! I hope that it is a great storyline as well and brings back the wonderment that is Korean dramas.

    Jag didn’t say HJM wasn’t A-list, she is but she doesn’t have many like Dazzling dramas which was acclaimed but starred NHJ who isn’t as you say on her level,Big male movie star level. The comparison to NHJ was just example, a bad one my part. She has many decent rom coms. She hasn’t done many big dramas,movies to be second to LBH. Important to remember in SK movie stars,acclaimed ones is on different level from dramas stars. Shin Min Ah has many dramas hits,movies longer period than HJM. HJM is ok but she hasn’t done many serious,acclaimed dramas since 2007.It is not who think has done more good dramas since 2015 but in that small Korean industry Shin Min Ah has longer record of works that was hits or acclaimed.

    • I don’t know how you can talk about acclaimed movie stars and not recognized Han Ji Min’s success in movies or did you miss the year she had with Miss Baek where she almost swept the best actress awards.

    • Going by your logic Son Ye Jin is also not a high level actress because she starred with Jung hae In in her comeback drama??😒..
      Njh may not be a big star back then..
      But that’s the main thing about A listers ..They don’t need to rely on anyone else’s star power..Miss Baek also won so many awards.

  9. Those talking none-sense about Han Ji Min maybe at least learn how to use google. There’s internet explorer or bing to search in the internet.

  10. Thank you, good comparison! I’m not understanding these comments on HJM. Have people been sleeping on her success?

  11. What is this fight about who is better? They’re both big names and both were criticized for her acting in the past but popular nonetheless and lately have been praised.

  12. Sorry but aren’t Shin Mina and Ha Ji Min A listers and well known and respected as veteran actresses ? Or maybe i’m still in the past . Each week there is a new hit star ! What disturbs me is that after all the scandals, LBH still get the big projects . Talent doesn’t allow all . And it’s unfair for actors who didn’t do half of what he did and were blacklisted . Double standards !

  13. Lol at all these downgrading comments on Han Ji Min in every articles that has her name. The woman is a great actress who doesn’t rely on anyone’s fame but her own hard works. An actress who’s not afraid to take on any characters big or small. Hope to see her soon in another drama. I love NHK dramas so will be looking forward to this one.

  14. Whatever han ji min has at this moment, she really has worked hard for it. So whatever success she has right now, she is just reaping the fruits of her labor. She is an actress who continue to improve herself and I am proud of her. Looking forward to her drama and movie.
