Kim Sung Cheol And Noh Jung Ui Confirmed To Join Choi Woo Shik And Kim Da Mi In New Rom-Com
“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 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.
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. He commented, “I’m happy and excited to appear in a drama after a long time. I think it will be more fun since I will be reuniting with actress Kim Da Mi. I can’t wait to meet you all. Please look forward to it.”
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. Kim Da Mi said, “I’m excited to be back with a drama that can capture the stories of young people. I’m looking forward to it because I think I can have fun working with the actors. I’ll do my best to perform my role.”
Kim Sung Cheol has been given the role of Kim Ji Woong, a documentary director who lives his life as an observer. Kim Ji Woong is a lonely figure who thinks that a documentary director who observes the world behind the camera somehow resembles him. He has maintained an omniscient perspective for most of his life but will start to change when he makes a documentary about Choi Woong and Gook Yeon Soo. Kim Sung Cheol shared, “It’s a warm and cute script. I’m already looking forward to meeting the viewers. I will do my best to show you a new side of me through Kim Ji Woong, so please look forward to it.”
Noh Jung Ui will be starring in the drama as a top idol named NJ who is preparing for the second act of her life. She is a famous celebrity with beautiful looks and amazing skills. After working fiercely as a star, she realizes that she is slowly becoming normal again and prepares to live her real life. She becomes interested in Choi Woong’s works and naturally grows curious about him. Noh Jung Ui stated, “It is an honor to be able to film a wonderful drama with good people. I will do my best to come back with a better image as an actor. I ask for your love and support.”
“Us That Year” will premiere in the second half of this year.
