Real life celebrity couple Shin Min-a & Kim Woo-bin in talks to star in same TV series

Real life celebrity couple Shin Min-a and Kim Woo-bin are likely to star in the drama "Our Blues" written by famous screenwriter Noh Hee-kyung of "It's Okay, That's Love."

AM Entertainment said Tuesday that Shin and Kim are in talks to star in the series. Shin recently featured in the thriller film, "Diva" (2020), and Kim just wrapped up filming director Choi Dong-hoon's sci-fi blockbuster, "Alien" (working title). If both take on the roles, it will be their first time to be in a TV series together.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the 20-episode anthology will closely observe the lives of broken people and fractured relationships. Shin and Kim are unlikely to be seen together in the series as they are expected to star opposite Lee Byung-hun and Han Ji-min, respectively.

Noh is an acclaimed screenwriter behind hit drama series such as SBS's "That Winter, the Wind Blows," tvN's "Dear My Friends" and "Live." Director Kim Kyu-tae, who was behind SBS's "It's Okay, That's Love," will be in charge of the series.

Actors Lee and Han are also in talks to appear. "Lee and Han received casting offers and are positively reviewing the roles," BH Entertainment said.

Both were supposed to be in Noh's drama, "Here," about NGO workers. But the project was put on hold due to COVID-19 as it required filming in overseas locations. So "Our Blues" will likely mark Lee's return first to the small screen since "Mr. Sunshine" (2018).

Cha Seoung-won, who recently played a mob boss in Netflix's "Night in Paradise" and Lee Jung-eun, who is currently starring as law professor in JTBC's drama "Law School," are also in talks to be featured in the upcoming series.

Filming will start in the second half of the year.
