Who's in the cast of Our Blues?
We know you're already kilig with this Min Ah and Woo Bin project but here's the sitch: The two will not portray the role of a couple in the K-drama, per Soompi. Instead, once the actors accept the offer, Min Ah will be paired with Byung Hun, Woo Bin will star opposite Han Ji Min, and Cha Seung Won's onscreen partner will be Lee Jung Eun. Interesting, huh?
To give you a brief background about Min Ah and Woo Bin's relationship, the two have been dating since 2015 and are now in their sixth year as a couple. They reportedly became close after endorsing the clothing brand Giordano. Since then, they have been vocal about their feelings in public, and Min Ah shared in an interview that they would often cheer on each other for their new projects. Not only that, the actress was also very supportive of Woo Bin when he was diagnosed with nasopharynx cancer and was seen accompanying him during his radiation and drug therapies. #TrueLove
