Choi Woo-shik, Kim Da-mi pair up for new rom-com drama
Choi Woo-shik, Kim Da-mi
It’s been confirmed that Choi Woo-shik (Parasite) and Kim Da-mi (Itaewon Class) will be starring together in upcoming drama That Year We. It’s about a couple that broke up agreeing that “Being together was awful. Let’s never see each other again!” When a high school documentary in which they were filmed 10 years ago suddenly becomes astronomically popular, they are summoned to be together in front of the cameras once more.
Choi Woo-shik will play the character of Choi Woong, who looks carefree, but begins to show his hidden sincerity when he finds something that he wants for the first time in his life. Kim Da-mi will play Guk Yeon-soo, whose goal in life during high school was to be number one. Now, she lives with emotional scars, and is just adjusting to the harsh reality of survival in society.
That Year We is a reunion project for Choi Woo-shik and Kim Da-mi. Previously, they starred opposite each other in a supernatural-action-thriller movie called Witch. Given their excellent respective acting track records, I can’t wait to see how this drama plays out.
Studio N’s 16-episode original series, That Year We, will begin production in the latter half of this year. There’s also supposed to be an acccompanying prequel webtoon of characters’ high school days that will be released on Naver.
