Lee Byung Hun, Shin Min Ah, Han Ji Min, Kim Woo Bin, And More Are Busy Making A Living On Jeju Island In “Our Blues”
tvN’s upcoming drama “Our Blues” released new stills ahead of the premiere!
“Our Blues” is an omnibus-style drama set in Jeju Island that tells the sweet, sour, and bitter life stories of a diverse array of characters. The drama includes the love stories of Lee Dong Suk (Lee Byung Hun) and Min Sun Ah (Shin Min Ah), Lee Young Ok (Han Ji Min) and Park Jung Joon (Kim Woo Bin), Choi Han Soo (Cha Seung Won) and Jung Eun Hee (Lee Jung Eun), and more.
Before its upcoming premiere, the drama released new stills of the characters in their everyday lives at Jeju Island. The main characters live together in the village of Pooreung, and most of them make a living by working at the markets.
In the first two photos, Lee Dong Suk is a hit with the grandmothers since he runs a truck that sells all kinds of useful items. Another image captures Park Jung Joon along with Lee Young Ok at Jung Eun Hee’s fish market. Hyun Choon Hee (Go Doo Shim) and Kang Ok Dong (Kim Hye Ja) realistically portray grandmothers selling fresh foods at the market. Fathers Jung In Kwon (Park Ji Hwan) and Bang Ho Shik (Choi Young Joon) are also busy making a living at the village market, while their children Jung Hyun (Bae Hyun Sung) and Bang Young Joo (Noh Yoon Seo) make an adorable high school couple.
A photo of the haenyeos (female diver that harvests sea life for a living) including rookie Lee Young Ok and expert Hyun Choon Hee captures the viewers’ eyes, while ship captain Park Jung Joon auctions off fish at the docks. The actors personally filmed on the ships and underwater, raising even more anticipation for the story that is to unfold in the upcoming drama. Not to mention, the actors all practiced the regional dialect of Jeju Island in order to make their characters seem even more realistic.
Furthermore, there are characters who have returned to Jeju Island after leaving. Min Sun Ah returns to her childhood home of Jeju Island while harboring a wound in her heart. A preview of Min Sun Ah depicts her fixing a rundown house. Choi Han Soo also comes back to his hometown as the manager of a bank branch on Jeju Island, and he is shown walking around the market, while Go Mi Ran (Uhm Jung Hwa) is having a blast with her old classmates Jung In Kwon, Bang Ho Shik, and Kim Kwang Kyu after returning to the island.
“Our Blues” will premiere on April 9 at 9:10 p.m. KST. Watch a teaser for the drama here!
