By  | 

Our Blooming Youth promises romance and intrigue when it premieres on February 6!

Our Blooming Youth, a new Monday-Tuesday shows on tvN, is a mysterious theme drama that tells the story of a cursed prince while also investigating a family murder case, in which a brilliant girl is identified as the culprit. It also depicts a youth vindication romance. 

Here’s a quick peek at what to expect in the series.

The Plot Sketch

Lee Hwan, who will be played by Park Hyung Sik is a Joseon Crown Prince with a handsome face but a harsh and arrogant personality. He has all the perfect qualities including superb martial arts skills and outstanding intelligence that has an eidetic memory. But then, a mysterious curse bound him.

Facing a series of crises while questioning who is responsible for the curse, he works with Min Jae-yi (Jeon So Nee) to uncover the truth for the sake of mutual survival.


The Characters

Our Blooming Youth is expected to present a different romance as Lee Hwan and Jae-yi, who are walking a precarious tightrope between faith and disbelief, work together to find the hidden truth against the yoke of fate that binds them.

In a group poster revealed, the remaining cast members were introduced.

First, Pyo Ye Jin plays Ga-ram, Min Jae-yi’s investigation companion. Next, Yoon Jong Seok suits up as Han Sung-on, the grandson of a prestigious family who lost his fiancée; while Lee Tae Sun portrays Kim Myung-jin, Joseon’s greatest eccentric who knows almost everything. Rounding up the lead cast is Heo Won Seo as Tae-kang, a distant escort warrior who follows Lee Hwan wherever he goes.

You can get a glimpse of the bright smiles of the six people who are trying to pioneer their own lives instead of a given destiny. In particular, Crown Prince Lee Hwan, who is rarely seen smiling due to his tough personality, draws attention with a subtle smile on his face.

Interestingly, Min Jae-yi, an adopted member of a high-ranking family, is dressed as a man. Her partner Ga-ram also wears commoner clothing usually donned by men hinting at their intriguing mission.

The stories of Han Sung On, Kim Myung Jin, and Tae Kang, who have a special bond with one another that goes beyond their social and gender roles, are also highlighted.

The Creative Team

Penning the script of Our Blooming Youth is Jung Hyun Jung. Her popular works include Romance is a Bonus Book, Five Enough, Discovery of Love and I Need Romance series. It will be the first time for writer Jung to write a historical set series but her romance dramas were relatively received well.

Helming the project is Director Lee Jong Jae.

Our Blooming Youth will premiere on February 6 at 8:50 p.m. on tvN.
