tvN’s upcoming drama “Because This Is My First Life” is a romantic comedy telling the story of “homeless” Yoon Ji Ho (Jung So Min) who needs a house and Nam Se Hee (Lee Min Ki), the owner of the house. The drama will showcase how this generation feels about survival, relationships, and marriage through humor.
Aside from Jung So Min and Lee Min Ki’s relationship, which is all about calculation and logic, Lee Som (playing the role of Woo Su Ji) and Park Byung Eun (playing the role of Ma Sang Gui) will portray a passionate couple who always do what they feel like. Kim Ga Eun and Kim Min Suk will show off their sweet chemistry as a couple that’s been dating for seven years in the drama.
Kim Ga Eun and Kim Min Suk’s characters act as if they’re still in the honeymoon phase although they’ve been dating for a long time. Yang Ho Rang (Kim Ga Eun) and Sim Won Seok (Kim Min Suk) didn’t get along perfectly from the beginning. Yang Ho Rang initially wanted to marry money for a secure future, while Sim Won Seok had a typical engineer mindset.
Sim Won Seok eventually becomes a devoted boyfriend who will massage her feet after a long day of work. When she worries that her feet might smell, he waves it off and says it wasn’t anything to worry about.
However, marriage is something the couple cannot avoid as they’re in their late 20s, early 30s. As it turns out, the amount of time they spent together doesn’t mean they’ll agree on the matter of marriage. The subtle conflict and disagreement Yang Ho Rang and Sim Won Seok go through will be portrayed throughout the drama.
The couple’s story will show both the sweetness of dating and the bitterness of reality, which people in long-term relationships or people thinking about marriage will relate to easily.
“Because This Is My First Life” will premiere on October 9 at 9:30 p.m. KST. It will be coming exclusively to Rakuten Viki, and you can check out a trailer below!
