Character teasers for youth drama Because It’s the First Time

Cable network OnStyle’s first original drama Because It’s the First Time comes from writer Jung Hyun-jung (Discovery of Romance, all three I Need Romance seasons) and PD Lee Jung-hyo (Witch’s Romance, I Need Romance), and tells the stories of twentysomething friends as they encounter everything in their lives for the first time, whether in work, or friendships, or love.

Teasers are out for the three main characters, played by idol-actor Min-ho (Medical Top Team), movie actress Park So-dam (Veteran, Sado), and rapper Kim Min-jae (Persevere, Gu Hae-ra, and soon to be in Twenty Again).

It’s a coming-of-age drama about twentysomethings who struggle with every new experience they encounter, and as they each find their own ways to deal with their problems, they grow up a little more. The drama promises an honest, realistic portrayal of the concerns and love lives of contemporary youths, at their most passionate age. Coming from the writer of the I Need Romance franchise who touched upon many similar concerns in thirtysomethings, I have faith that it’s likely not an empty promise.

Min-ho plays the lead character Tae-ho, who brags in his teaser that he’s handsome, got a great body (he stops to check himself out, lol), and he’s wealthy too. He says he was born with a golden spoon in his mouth, and he’s good at everything, even when he’s not trying. But his one problem? There’s nothing he wants to do.

The heroine, played by Park So-dam, works a part-time job at her family’s flower shop, which goes under. She’s a contemporary hardworking Candy type, and she says that she’s been living on her friend’s rooftop in a tent. She confesses that she does kinda have the hots for someone, and Min-ho, Kim Min-jae, and Lee Yi-kyung all pop in to ask, “Is it me?” She says it isn’t, but she’ll end up in a love triangle with Min-ho and Min-jae.

Kim Min-jae plays a 20-year-old who grew up quickly, due to a difficult family background. He’s a staunch realist and says in his trailer that real life is harsh, so he can’t waste time on senseless dreams or a girlfriend, because love doesn’t feed you. He’ll end up coworkers with the heroine, and will likely have a lot in common with her, and he’s sure to clash with the golden boy who’s never had a care in his life.

Because It’s the First Time will premiere in early October.

Kim Min Jae looks like a young Song Joong Ki, they need to play brothers in something. Will check an ep or two out if it gets subbed.

Right!? I immediately thought of Woo-bin's character in 'Twenty' when I read Min-ho's character description.

Though I was a SHINee fangirl, I was never (still not) a fan of Actor Min-ho, so I'm not on the edge of my seat waiting for this, but the other two leads look super cute, so I will be looking out for this one.

I like the writer and PD so I wanna watch. It seems cute and there are cute people so I feel like there is a high chance of it getting subbed but wow, I never knew about this until now. Seems like something that should have had news circulating. Or maybe I just missed it, lol.

Oh! This definitely sounds like a drama I will watch. There's not enough slice of life Korean dramas, though of course, romance won't be missing from this one.

I'm definitely in.

BIG SHINee fan girl, but do not like Minho as an actor. This looks like it could be cute though, so I will check it out. Maybe he's improved?

Same here. I really hope that he'll surprise us this time...otherwise not very happy with him as an actor.

Minho did audition for the role actually, so I'm definitely hoping that his acting has improved :)

Same here. At least he sounds like he fits the description of the character well, so that's something.

These twentysomethings just turned twenty? They're adorable, and the fourth one is a Lee Min-ki lookalike.

Do you mean Lee Yi Kyung? He seemed to be in at a lot of things i watch at around the same time, and portrayed despicable to cutely hapless successfully. Was interested enough to check him in wikipedia and saw that his father is CEO of LG :O Omo, real life chaebol..?

I'm a SHINee fan so I'll check this out for Minho (even though his acting has been a bit lacking), but the lead girl is cute and this looks like it might be pretty cute overall so I hope it turns out well.

Not a fan of Park So-dam hair. But seems like it could be a fun show. Doesn't really sound appealing to me but I loved Witch's Romance and I Need Romance 3 so I may give it a try.

I hope this gets subbed. I need a youth coming-of-age drama right now that doesn't involve swapped twins, birth secrets, and vampires.

Everyone looks cute and I like the character description of Min-jae so far. Show, I hope you fare well! :)

I love that the lead woman has really short hair. We don't get that in a lot of kdramas. Unless they are pretending to be a boy.

i hope this will be good, korea doesnt have a lot of these coming of age, slice of life dramas especially with 20 somethings. i usually get my fix from japanese, taiwanese or chinese dramas and they also have a mix of romance in it as well. they are usually really good as well. like orange days, office girls, im currently watching best get going etc. they have good characterizations and do well in showing the struggles but at the same time in the romance department there is still a vibe of fairy tale, classic love story which i really like.

so i want this drama to be good.

That poster reminds me of the poster of the Taiwanese film "You are the Apple of My Eye." Hmm.

Anyway, the plot looks like something I'd enjoy so I'll look forward to this!

gosh she's soo ugly...i mean her hair looks like it was choped with an ax...horrible (i'm really not a hater but the hairstyle tho...) i really though she was a man in the begining, no joke, and i was asking myself why is a man dressed like that? when i understood she was the lead woman i asked myself why are the guys prettier? 3 pretty guys chasing after an ugly girl...that's got to be an interesting drama to watch

Wow. You're probably SOO PRETTY to be able to say that a person is "soo ugly" that easily.

I, on the contrary, adore her hair. It's a rather pleasant change from the sea of straight, long, shampoo commercial perfect hair that has been populating the dramaworld for so long. It actually adds more to her character. And yeah she kinda reminds me of Onew too. Which is again, so adorbs because, Onew.
