Choi Woo Shik And Kim Da Mi To Reunite In New Romantic Comedy Drama
Choi Woo Shik and Kim Da Mi have been confirmed to star in Studio N’s first original drama “Us That Year” (literal title)!
The upcoming drama “Us That Year” is a romance comedy that portrays the complicated feelings of a couple that breaks up saying, “It was an awful time with you, and let’s never meet again!” However, the documentary they filmed 10 years ago in high school suddenly gains popularity, and they’re forcibly brought together in front of the camera once more.
Choi Woo Shik will be playing Choi Woong, who appears to be an immature free spirit, but he brings out his sincerity when he finds something he wants in life for the first time. After starring in the Academy winning film “Parasite,” Choi Woo Shik is currently impressing viewers with his thoughtful and friendly nature on the tvN variety show “Youn’s Stay.”
Kim Da Mi will take on the role of Gook Yeon Soo, whose greatest life goal was to place No. 1 during her school days. Now, she’s trying to become an adult while living life fiercely and adjusting to reality with a wound in her heart. After receiving praise as a “monster rookie” for her film “The Witch,” Kim Da Mi rose to fame through her most recent drama “Itaewon Class.”
Choi Woo Shik and Kim Da Mi starred in the film “The Witch” together, and this time, they’ll be starring in a trendy romance drama that portrays the current generation’s dreams, love, lives, and growth through a relationship that spans across 10 years. The new original drama will have 16 episodes and start production in the second half of the year.
Studio N, which has successfully produced webtoon-based dramas such as “Strangers from Hell” and “True Beauty,” will soon be diving into their first original project “Us That Year.” The studio will simultaneously produce an original drama and a webtoon for “Us That Year.” The drama will feature the main leads as adults while the webtoon will be a prequel that depicts their high school days. The webtoon will be serialized through Naver Webtoon. Unlike previous formats in which the drama was produced after the webtoon, plans for the “Us That Year” drama will come first, and the webtoon will be serialized at the same time that the drama airs, introducing a new form of multi-platform content. In addition to original projects, Studio N is planning on producing diverse interesting content across different genres and types of media.
