Actor Choi Woo Shik and actress Kim Da Mi are confirmed to star in Naver Webtoon’s first ever self-produced K-Drama Us That Year.
According to the press release shared by Us That Year, Choi Woo Shik, Kim Da Mi, Kim Sung Chul, and Roh Jeong Eui will be the lead cast for the upcoming SBS romantic comedy K-Drama. It will be a show that shows the complicated feelings of a couple who broke up on bad terms, but a documentary they filmed together in high school resurfaced and went viral, forcing them back in the spotlight — together. The mixed feelings, love stories and growing pains, and romance will create a must-watch series.
Choi Woo Shik will play the role of Choi Woong, a free-spirited building illustrator. He didn’t have any dreams and suppressed his true self, but his emotions come out from hiding once he meets Gook Yeon Soo. Choi Woo Shik shared that he was very excited to reunite with Kim Da Mi in a K-Drama, and can’t wait for his fans to see it.
Kim Da Mi will play the role of the aforementioned Gook Yeon Seo, a public relations expert. She only wants success, something that started when she was in school as the #1 student. Once she got a job as a publicist, she was instantly recognized as one of the top ones in society. Although she has been working hard for her success, she still carries a wound in her heart and a feeling of emptiness. Once she reunites with Choi Woong, her feelings begin to change.
Kim Sung Chul will play the role of Kim Ji Woong, a documentary director who prefers observing others. He is on the lonely side and always maintained an omniscient perspective in life, but begins to change once he begins working with Choi Woong and Gook Yeon Seo on their reunion documentary.
Roh Jeong Eui will play the role of NJ, a top idol who is preparing for the second chapter of her life. With her overwhelming visuals and skills, she was always at the top of the class of idols and had many fans. After working hard for so long, she decided to take a step back and try to live a more normal lifestyle. She begins taking an interest in Choi Woong after seeing his illustrations, which helped comfort her, so she naturally becomes interested in him as well.
This will be the second time Choi Woo Shik and Kim Da Mi work together, as they both starred in 2018 movie The Witch. Following that, the both landed breakout roles; Choi Woo Shik in Parasite and Kim Da Mi in Itaewon Class.
Us That Year will begin filming soon and is scheduled to air on SBS later this year.
