Romance and sunshine for Kam Woo-sung and Kim Haneul in The Wind Blows

The upcoming JTBC romance melo The Wind Blows has released its first video teaser featuring Kam Woo-sung (Should We Kiss First) and Kim Haneul (On the Way to the Airport). The two actors are set to play a couple who breakup—only to then fall in love with each other all over again years down the road.

Kim Haneul was Kam Woo-sung’s first love and they’re happily married when Kam is suddenly diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. In an act of loving sacrifice (or perhaps noble idiocy depending on your perspective), he divorces her in order to spare her the ordeal of seeing him decline. Kim Haneul was deeply in love with Kam Woo-sung at the time of their breakup, to the point that he was her entire life. When she eventually learns about his diagnosis, she makes an unexpected decision.

The video teaser starts with a photographer calling out to Kim Haneul at what looks to be the couple’s wedding photoshoot. Kam Woo-sung and Kim are eager for the shoot to proceed smoothly but a young couple keep walking into the frame while arguing.

Kim and Kam are clearly irritated but the hiccup doesn’t seem to put a damper on their happiness. (Kam reassures his wife jokingly, “After we take our photos, I’ll kill them. Promise.”) Though their shots keep getting ruined, Kam Woo-sung doesn’t seem to have a care in the world and he gazes lovingly at Kim Haneul before sweeping her up in his arms and getting a whole bunch of adorable shots of the two of them. The teaser ends with Kam and Kim in voice over taking turns to say, “The Wind Blows, airing on Mondays and Tuesdays at JTBC. May 27.”

When a melo gives out a cute, rom-com-esque teaser, I automatically think the show itself will be an emotional gut punch. Both leads have this sweet, lovey-dovey chemistry with each other that suits their characters well and I can’t say no to a Kam Woo-sung drama. The Wind Blows will be directed by PD Jung Jung-hwa (Absolute Boyfriend, Flower Boy Next Door) and written by Hwang Joo-ha (Mrs. Cop).

In My Spring Day/Springday of My Life it was she who was sick ... and the poor man didn't just lose the wife once. :-(

So one way or another, his characters suffer for their happiness. And we fans suffer along with him.

It's not a real Korean melo unless it involves terminal illness, at least one CEO and a happily never after ending.

I like them together so maybe I'll take a peek.

This sounds so much like Shall We Kiss First that I don't even have to watch it to know that (most likely):
1) it will start off super cute and fun (to soften you up)
2) and then it will hit you with illness & death.

I love Kim Haneul but I'm not going to put myself through that again.

** I'll just rewatch On the Way to the Airport **

It may be about time for a rewatch of THE KING AND THE CLOWN.

One of these days I'll get around to watching 60 episodes of KING OF LEGEND / KING GEUNCHOGO with KWS in the title role as the King of Baekje.

KING GEUNCHOGO was one of the better sageuk based on Baekje. I thought it was underrated and Kam did well. Most of the criticisms was about his height,( like Koreans were known for having tall war heros lol).
The pace is slower than JUMONG but I enjoyed it more since it felt more grounded.

Hello @pakalanapikake, my fellow SWKF sufferer! Without our make-shift recap sessions I wouldn't have made it through that drama alive!

Wait - but if I'd died, then Kam Woo-sung could have played the part of me, in the (gender-swapped) drama about my tragic kdrama-watching life.

ROFLMAO at your tragic Kdrama-watching autobiography. I love it! Especially with KWS portraying you. It will be intense and deeply affecting. ;-)

For fellow SHOULD WE KISS FIRST sufferers, here's the link for the DIY recaps @cloggie mentioned:

Those were indeed the good old (masochistic) days. Oh, wait. It was only a year ago. Sheesh.

Same here. If I see you watching it, I'll drag you away. Apologies in advance if that dragging involves a wrist-grab.

I’ll watch it like I didn’t cry my eyes out watching Should We Kiss First?
I just love this man enough to give him another chance to break my heart.

Much as I love Kam Woo-sung's acting, after SHOULD WE KISS FIRST, I don't think I can take another melodrama full of terminal illness. Or maybe I'll wait to see how it goes. The stress of waiting from week to week for SWKF nearly did me in, and I've got a couple of sageuks coming up that I really want to live-watch.

LOL at the photo-bombed wedding pictures in the teaser. Oh my aching sacroiliac. ;-)

@mary,

You can say that again! And I am at long last beginning to tell my inner masochist to pipe down and look away from the impending emotional trainwreck. LOL!

For some reason, I could handle the wonderful ALONE IN LOVE, but yet another show with Alzheimer's in it is just too much for moi. Even if it turns out that he was mis-diagnosed or his records were mixed up with another patient's. Enough with the shoddy hospital practices already.

With Alzheimer's ruled out, Writer-nim will probably inflict some other fatal degenerative scourge on his character. I'm just not up for a melodrama doing the Mexican hat dance on what left of my SHOULD WE KISS FIRST-shredded heart. I am a yellow-bellied wimp. ;-)
