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!

after enough drama watching, i've come to the conclusion that while the actors and pairings may bring in interest and hype, the real dealbreaker is the writing. despite the nice pairing i am wary of this drama.

They're basically ripping off Time Traveler's Wife lol, which is interesting because I assume you need to buy the rights to something like that if you want to profit off the exact same storyline.

omg you're right!! the premise did sound familiar. i get the feeling that a lot of drama producers/writers come up with these seemingly original plots, only to later realize that they were stealing an idea that they'd already seen before.

Required fields are marked *

I wouldn't say it's a rip-off just yet if we don't know the full story.

There's a lot of time travel stories out there so it's not like Time Traveler's Wife is original.

Just like "The Hunger Games" isn't technically a "Battle Royale" ripoff or like the Hollywood movie "Juno" had the same theme as the Kmovie "Jenny, Juno."

I would wait and see before calling it a knock off. I'm curious about how far he time travels. In The Time Traveler's Wife, he only moved back in and forth in a limited time frame while I wonder if in this one he'll travel further.

OMG! IM SO HAPPY! I LOVE SHIN MIN AH! Wasn't expecting her to come back to dramaland so soon after OMV since her break from dramas after Arang was so long. But this totally made my day! I do not know LMK that well. Just saw him in the movie Spellbound with Son Ye Jin and liked him there. Anyways feeling proud of tvn for recruiting my favourites! First JCW and now SMH. Glad I woke uo to this after only having slept 3 hours. Don't think I ever wrote such a long comment ( does this qualify as long lol) on this site before. Shows my excitement right?

Ah, Dal Ja's Spring!! Brings back fond memories! One of the first recaps I read on Dramabeans. I don't think I've seen Lee Min Ki in anything since then, so this is great news!! Hadn't realised just how much I missed his presence in dramaland until this potential casting news came along. Makes me want to marathon some of his dramas all over again!

This pairing sounds cute as heck! Shin Min Ah is always winning in her roles. If they sign on, i will definitely watch this.

But, if Shin Min Ah passes, i wonder if tvN is willing to risk taking on Yoon Eun Hye.....

I feel like I'm one of the few people that never got the over the top hype for Shin Mina. She reminds me of Lee Min Jung, although she is a better actress, but they both got semi hits early on in their careers, but then made some really crappy and unremarkable choices the past five years or so. She's pretty irrelevant, yet still gets some shine because of her looks and past success. I feel like I hear more about her body then any projects she's done since Arang tbh, which is unfortunate.

Shin Mina's looks overshadow her talent, which is unfortunate because she really is a good actress.

I'd rather watch an "irrelevant" actress with some talent than the trendy thing of the moment who goes dead behind the eyes when asked to generate a facial expression that isn't optimised for selling products.

Don't make me laugh. I've a sleeping familyI don't want to wake up. I love it when you're politely sarcastic.

One actress came to mind immediately and I've such a bad case of the giggles. Since I can actually visualize her with her ded eyes. And people say she is emoting. And god help us it or "she " is coming soon.

But this pairing is so good. Please make it happen. SMA can act way better than the truckloads of bad idol actors I had to sit through the last few years. Just because I liked the writer, the other lead or other cast members.

I wonder if said "actress" will learn to simultaneously attempt a facial expression AND close her mouth, this time.

SMA was a decent actress even at a young age, and one of the few actors I can think of who make an equally effective lead in both melo and romcoms. She's always been expressive and natural at emoting.

Also, it doesn't hurt that she's always had fantastic chemistry with all her male leads too - whatever the other flaws in this drama are, lack of chemistry is not likely to be one of them (ironically, her only pairing that was cute but lacked sizzle, is the one that made her famous)

Also, another reason you might not hear much about her is because her movie career features a load of smaller-budget projects and indies- she's not chasing the money/popularity in Chungmuro.

Oh, I know. I prefer Korean films over dramas any day and know she does indies a lot more than the usual popular choices. But, even then, I just haven't been impressed in anything she's done in awhile.

I thought she was great as the wife in My Love, My Bride, and from what I know Gwangju was fairly well-received.

She hasn't had that many projects since Arang anyway - one was a short film, one was an indie, MLMB did quite well at the box office, and then there was, well, OMV.

I agree with that comment up there. I understand it's easier for Korean actors to do movies because of the ungodly schedules they follow during dramas, so TVN been pulling quite a feat getting those people back to doing dramas.

I'm guessing it will be out early next year regardless. His discharge date is the August, 3rd and I'm sure he intends to prepare for the role (if he confirms). He is although only allowed to attend working related events after his offical discharge aka Script Reading. Lastly, the follow-up drama for the Good Wife should to start early September and I'm certain that neither Lee Min-ki nor Shin Min-a are to keen to live-shoot from the get-go.

But that also means we have to wait longer for him...sigh!

I have a soft spot for Shin Minah since MGiaG was my first kdrama and she was simply adorable in it. As for Lee Minki ...I laughed so much when I ended up watching 3 of his movies in a row by pure coincidence (Very Ordinary Couple, Spellbound, Shoot Me in the Heart). I got paranoid. He was everywhere lol
I'd love to see him as a lead in a drama (beware of trucks)

I don't particularly like Shin Mina but will basically watch anything with LMK's name attached to it--especially if it's a drama which = MORE LMK.

I mean, the lead actress COULD be worst, so I would just count my blessings and not complain at all if she accepts. I just hope HE accepts, it's due time this baby makes a return to the small screen. I mean, how cruel was it of him to blow us away with his quick 2 eps cameo on SFBB and then just leave? SO RUDE, lol.

I'm ready to welcome him back with open arms <3
