tvN’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Because This Is My First Life” released stills of Shim Won Seok (played by Kim Min Suk) and Yang Ho Rang’s (played by Kim Ga Eun) realistic relationship as the two ponder over marriage.
Ho Rang, who had a seven-year plan which involved getting married, was temporarily halted. Won Seok confessed to Ho Rang that although he loves her a lot and wants her by his side, he was unsure about marriage. This brought about a big change in Ho Rang. Instead of getting depressed or crying, she put into a place a unique strategy.
She researched and read “The Book On Human Reproduction And The Necessity Of The Institution Of Marriage.” She would also get physically affectionate with Won Seok but suddenly and solemnly stated, “I can’t be physically affectionate with someone with whom my future is uncertain.”
Won Seok, who had confided in Ma Sang Gu (played by Park Byung Eun) about this issue, also had a strategy. He asked her defiantly, “Are love and marriage the same thing?” but immediately became flustered when Ho Rang shot at him straight back, “Are love and lust the same thing?”
On their characters, Kim Ga Eun stated, “[Ho Rang] has this adorable mindset that after seven years of dating she has house trained her boyfriend.” Kim Min Suk commented, “Please watch Won Seok as he struggles with the very realistic issue of marriage.”
“Because This Is My First Life” airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. KST on tvN.
