tvN is set to premiere their new Monday-Tuesday drama “Because This Is My First Life” on October 9 and they’ve shared three keywords that viewers should remember while watching the show.
1. New-age home life
“Because This Is My First Life” begins with the story of Yoon Ji Ho (played by Jung So Min) and Nam Sae Hee (played by Lee Min Ki) as they try to fight through the struggles of finding a home and making one’s own place in the world. “Homeless” Yoon Ji Ho is need of a house she can move into immediately, while “House poor” Nam Sae Hee needs a housemate and renter who can take care of his house. Things are set to get interesting when they find out that they are of the opposite sex, and viewers will enjoy seeing how they face the various situations that come from the two characters’ time together.
2. Six people, three different couples
The three couples that will be featured on the drama are all at different stages in their relationships with different ups and downs. Yoon Ji Ho and Nam Sae Hee are the “calculating couple” who get to know each other through rational conditions and choices. Woo Soo Ji (played by Lee Som) and Ma Sang Gu (played by Park Byung Eun) are the ‘true to instincts couple” who reunite by chance and seem to have a blazing, but unstable, relationship. Lastly, Yang Ho Rang (played by Kim Ga Eun) and Shin Won Suk (played by Kim Min Suk) are the “7 years strong couple” who still love each other despite breaking up and getting back together over the years. The three completely different couples are set to tell stories that many young people can relate to.
3. Bright and energetic stories that are relatable
The main story is based on the meeting between the homeless and the house poor, which is an interesting concept itself. It plans to draw viewers in with realistic stories and struggles that the youth experience when it comes to work, relationships, and marriage. Screenwriter Yoon Nan Joong’s energetic pace and witty lines are set to bring the drama to life. “Because This Is My First Life” is set to be comedic but relatable, to make Monday and Tuesday nights happier for viewers.
