Lee Min-ki, Shin Mina up for fantasy romance Tomorrow With You
Oooh, what a pairing! I could really get behind a romance between Lee Min-ki (Shut Up: Flower Boy Band) and Shin Mina (Oh My Venus), especially a quirky, offbeat, hilarious romance from the PD of Oh My Ghostess and High School King of Savvy. Just imagine the adorable hijinks that will be had! The two actors are currently considering offers to headline tvN’s fantasy romance Tomorrow With You, which would reunite them seven years after their thriller movie together, A Million.
The “sweet and savage fantastic romance” drama comes from the writer of KBS melodrama Full Sun and the movie All About My Wife, and tells the story of a time-traveler and his wife. I was worried that the production would have setbacks when Han Ji-min declined the offer to star, but I like the potential Lee Min-ki/Shin Mina pairing better, so I hope it sticks.
The series is about their love story and their life together (or apart?) as newlyweds, and the heroine is described as refreshingly upbeat and funny, which seems perfect for Shin Mina. Lee Min-ki tends to choose things that are off the beaten path, so it makes me curious about this time-traveler character and his story. We’re not told much else, but there’s so much comic potential in the cast and director that I’m starting to get my hopes up for this drama.
Tomorrow With You was originally slated to be a Friday-Saturday series after The Good Wife, but it looks like that slot might go to thriller K2 instead, which is courting Ji Chang-wook to star. That might delay Tomorrow With You until early next year, though I guess it’ll depend on which drama signs their lead actors first. I don’t know that I care about the order, so long as everybody signs on!
