IU and Park Bo Gum To Reportedly Lead New Drama “Life”

IU was reportedly cast as the female lead alongside Park Bo Gum, who was reportedly cast as the male lead in the upcoming drama “Life” helmed by Kim Won Seok and Lim Sang Chun.

The upcoming drama Life is about the lives of a girl and a boy whose lives revolve around the four seasons. The drama will be written by Im Sang-Chun, the writer of “Fight for My Way” and “When the Camellia Blooms,” and will be directed by Kim Won-Seok, the director of “Misaeng,” “Signal,” and “My Mister.”

Park Bo-gum was born on June 16, 1993, and is well-known for playing a variety of characters in movies and television shows, including a psychotic lawyer in Hello Monster, a brilliant Go player in Reply 1988, a Joseon Crown Prince in Love in the Moonlight, a free-spirited man who falls in love with an elderly woman in Encounter, and a model who overcomes obstacles to become a successful actor in Record of Youth.

He joined the Navy in August 2020, as a cultural public relations officer in the Military Music and Orchestra and was officially discharged on April 30. He left an impact with tvN’s “Record of Youth” before enlisting, and since then, attention has been focused on his next works.

Lee Ji Eun who is better known by her stage name IU has acclaimed a great name in acting along with her musical career. She is well known for starring in television drama series including Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, Pretty Man, and You Are the Best! IU drew acclaim for her portrayal of a hopeless office worker in My Mister, which led to her receiving a nomination for Best Actress in Television at the 55th Baeksang Arts Awards. She appeared in the fantasy television series Hotel del Luna in 2019.

Park Bo-gum previously appeared in a special appearance in KBS’s “The Producer,” which starred IU, but this will be the first time the two actors will collaborate on the same project as the main leads. Expectations are high for their collaboration as it will be Park Bo Gum’s military comeback drama and IU’s comeback in dramaland after her back-to-back hit movies.

Meanwhile, the upcoming drama “Life” is set to air in late 2023 or early 2024.
