Youth of May releases new stills with Lee Do-hyun, Go Min-shi, Lee Sang-yi

New character stills have been released for KBS’s upcoming romance drama Youth of May, featuring its main cast: Lee Do-hyun (Sweet Home), Go Min-shi (Sweet Home), and Lee Sang-yi (Once Again).

The drama takes place in May of 1980, a troubled period in South Korean history when ongoing political and social conflicts were reverberating across the country. In a moment of hopeful spring though, amidst the dangerous climate, our two leads are brought together by fate and they fall in love.

Lee Do-hyun takes on the role of medical college student Hwang Hui-tae. Being at the top of his class and attending the prestigious Seoul National University, people often assume that all he does is stay home and study. But he makes an effort to set aside time for other interests, such as tinkering with his guitar or visiting music cafés. Although he’s always felt like he never quite belonged anywhere, everything changes when something unexpected happens in his life.

Go Min-shi plays Kim Myung-hee, who has been working as a nurse for 3 years now. Rather than a white-robed angel, it is more fitting to describe her as a white-robed warrior as she works tirelessly to do her job well and make a living for herself. Having lived a tough life, she is elated when she finally starts seeing an opportunity to make her dream a reality but fate throws her another unexpected twist.

Lee Sang-yi’s character is businessman Lee Soo-chan. He had the privilege of studying business administration abroad in France and now works at his family’s trading company. But the increasing political rumblings in Korea have made the economic market unstable as well and he ends up signing a precarious contract in order to save his family’s struggling business.

Written by Lee Kang (Spy) and directed by PD Song Min-yeop (Doctor Prisoner), Youth of May is set to premiere next month and will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS.

I like the cast, especially Lee Do-hyun. Is this supposed to be a tragic love story? I hope the setting doesn't cause any problems for the drama.

Hoping Youth of May which is set in 1980 will have the same vibe as Girls Generation 1979 which also aired on KBS.

I would be more excited and the writer wasn't the same one thay wrote Spy, maybe Lee Kang has become a better writer. Spy was unfortunate.

I don't know much about these two leads but the girl Go Min-shi is gorgeous. She reminds me of Kim Min-hee.

I love the two leads in Sweet Home. Bit funny that we have the lover arc after seeing them as sibling. But eh, not like they're an actual brother-sister.

I'm so excited for this!! Sweet Home cast members reunited, the return of the glorious Lee Do-hyun, and period piece taking place in the 1980s - this drama has gathered together all of my favorites into one! I haven't been this excited about anything in a while. Next month come sooner!

I am on the fence about this drama. As much as I love Lee Do Hyun, this drama and it's setting has the ability to give us a tragic story. I don't know if I have it in me to get my heart broken.
