Lee Byung Hun And Kim Hye Ja Take Their First And Final Trip Together In “Our Blues”
“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. In addition to Lee Byung Hun and Kim Hye Ja, the star-studded cast includes Shin Min Ah, Kim Woo Bin, Han Ji Min, Cha Seung Won, Lee Jung Eun, Uhm Jung Hwa, and more.
On the previous episode of “Our Blues,” Kang Ok Dong (Kim Hye Ja) finally told her estranged son Lee Dong Suk (Lee Byung Hun) that she had late-stage cancer and didn’t have long left to live. Dong Suk then wound up confronting her about why she had hurt him in the past and if she even felt sorry for how she’d treated him.
In newly released stills from the drama’s next episode, Dong Suk and Ok Dong spend some quality time together for the first and last time in their lives during their trip to Mokpo. Initially, the resentful Dong Suk coldly walks ahead of his mother as she follows close behind—but eventually, he is unable to resist turning around and looking back at her.
Other photos capture the mother-son duo awkwardly eating together in a restaurant, revealing that they are finally getting to do ordinary, everyday things that they never did together back in Jeju. As both of them know all too well that they are running out of time, it remains to be seen whether Dong Suk will be able to forgive Ok Dong for the past.
To find out where Dong Suk and Ok Dong’s journey will lead, tune in to the next episode of “Our Blues” on June 11 at 9:10 p.m. KST.
