While Netflix is understandably getting all the buzz recently in the K-drama sphere, there remains plenty of quality talent and projects proliferating elsewhere and in 2022 none is more star-studded than the Noh Hee Kyung penned K-drama Our Blues. It’s an omnibus style story intersecting various characters living and returning to Jeju Island. The pairings will be Lee Byung Hun with Shin Mina which I have no problem with in terms of onscreen chemistry or age-difference other than they played older brother-younger sister in one of my fave guilty pleasure early Hallyu dramas Beautiful Days so I’m going to have to do a mind wipe here. Another pairing is Cha Seung Won with Lee Jung Eun, play reunited first loves. And Shin Mina’s real life boyfriend Kim Woo Bin will be paired with Han Ji Min and hooboy I’m majorly looking forward to both the insane height difference and the spark. Last but not least Uhm Jung Hwa will also join the cast because why not, it’s already packed to the gills with A-listers might as well make it a party.
