First script reading for tvN’s ‘This Life Is Our First’ with Lee Min Ki and Jung So Min

2017 seems like a year with copious quantity of fantasy and thrillers in terms of drama genres, but if you think about it, the year has also had a fair share of quintessential romantic comedies — Fight My Way, Strongest Deliveryman, Introverted Boss, The Liar And His Lover, My Secret Romance — and there are many in the works to be broadcast in the remaining months. One such addition comes in the form of tvN’s This Life Is Our First, a cohabitation romance starring Lee Min Ki (Dalja’s Spring) and Jung So Min (Father Is Strange) in the lead roles. He plays a man who decides to never get married. He owns a house, but in order to meet his financial needs, he allows Jung So Min’s character to live there. The show recently held its first script reading and from the stills, we can see many more cast mates. Esom, (who has mostly done movies; Scarlet Innocence, Like For Likes to name a few), Kim Ga Eun (Reunited Worlds), Park Byung Eun (Mystery Queen) and Kim Min Suk (he seems to be in every drama these days; he has done Defendant, Age Of Youth 2 this year). Looks like we are going to get three sets of couples here, always a good thing in my book.

I really want This Life Is Our First to hit all the right notes of romance and fun, having all the bells and whistles along with some depth. The show arrives in October and comes from the screenwriter of Ho Goo’s Love and Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, which gives me hope that it will have a slice-of-life feel to it. Yay.

    I don’t know what to think of this.

    I used to love Lee Min Ki, but the sexual assault accusation has made me feel iffy about him. He was found innocent before the whole thing was revealed to the public, but…you never truly know. At the same time, I don’t really want to accuse someone without proof, so I’ve been in this neutral ‘try not to think about it’ stage. It kinda sucks.

    In any case, I do like Jung So Min as well, so I’ll probably check this drama out for her. I’m quite hopeful about the screenwriter, too.

      I did read about that news but I thought he was proved innocent as the scandal did not grow like other similar cases. Also, didn’t see any mention after that one news article.
      But I guess you are right…you never get to know the complete truth.

        I am glad he was proved innocent and that no other proof that he did anything came out, but unfortunately it doesn’t completely put me at ease. I’m still willing to watch his works, but I guess not with the same enthusiasm.
