One of fans’ wishes has come true but with a twist!
Earlier this year, it was reported that Lee Byung Hun, Cha Seung Won, Kim Woo Bin, Shin Min Ah, Han Ji Min, and Lee Jung Eun will be starring in writer No Hee Kyung’s upcoming drama “Our Blues” (literal title). At the time, the actors stated they were still in talks for the drama.
When the news first broke, fans were over the moon at the likelihood of seeing their favorite couple together.
And it has been confirmed, Kim Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah have confirmed casting in the upcoming drama “Our Blues.” They will finally be appearing in the same drama.
Despite being a part of the same industry, the two actors didn’t meet on the set of a kdrama but met on the set of a commercial many years ago and began dating after that, thus, fans thought it would be amazing if they could see them together as a couple on screen one day.
However, that is still unlikely to be the case.
While Shin Min Ah and Kim Woo Bin did confirm casting for “Our Blues,” they will not be paired together causing confusion among fans.
According to the drama’s own description of each character, Shin Min Ah and Kim Woo Bin will be paired with different actors.
Shin Min Ah will be paired with Lee Byung Hun’s character while Kim Woo Bin will be paired with Han Ji Min.
This came as a huge shock to fans, and since the backdrop of the drama will be Jeju island, fans are not sure whether all the different characters of the drama will be interacting or not, because if they are, fans argue it would be weird to see a real-life couple paired with different actors in the same drama like that.
Regardless, fans are still happy about the fact that they will be seeing Kim Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah on screen in the same drama. “Our Blues” also marks Kim Woo Bin’s first drama in 6 years since his last drama “Uncontrollably Fond” in 2016.
“Our Blues” airs in 2022.
