OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
SEOUL - Netflix Inc., the world’s leading Internet entertainment service, announced that My First First Love, a Korean romcom original series, will launch globally on Thursday, April 18.
My First First Love is a story of unexpected love and personal growth, depicted through relationships formed by five young adults who find their “first-time” adulthood rather difficult and emotionally challenging.
Jisoo, who wowed the audience with his brilliant acting in Strong Girl Bong-soon, plays the leading male character, Yun Tae-o, alongside Jung Chae-yeon, who plays Han Song-i, Tea-O’s dear friend of 20 years. Jung debuted her acting in Drinking Solo, where she appealed to many fans with her fresh charm.
Creating a complicated love triangle with Tae-o and Song-i is Seo Do-hyeon, played by Jinyoung who has expanded his acting career with such titles as Love in the Moonlight and The Dude in Me (2018). Do-hyeon is not only Tae-o’s best friend but also becomes Song-i’s boyfriend.
Choi Ri, who starred in Spirits’ Homecoming (2015), and Kang Tae-oh, known for his recent film Fengshui (2018), play O Ga-rin and Choi Hun, respectively. Both of them end up living at Tae-o’s house, which in turn creates an interesting share house setting.
My First First Love is directed by Oh Jin-seok of Yong-pal and My Sassy Girl (TV drama), and written by Kim Ran, with Jung Hyun-jung, whose popular works include Five Enough and Discovery of Love, also taking part as a creator.
