Actor Kim Woo-bin is making his return in his first TV series next week after a long absence, during which he fought a battle against cancer. He was forced to take leave to treat nasopharyngeal cancer in 2017.
He will appear in cable channel tvN's new drama series "Our Blues," which portrays various stories of different people and their lives against the backdrop of Jeju Island's beautiful scenery.
Kim plays a warm-hearted sailor who opts for a tranquil life on the island, unlike those around him who are eager to head to Seoul or other big cities, and lives in an abandoned bus that he has remodeled to look like a café. He dreams of finding a woman to love and enjoy a simple life there with her.
Kim's real-life girlfriend, actress Shin Min-a, is among the star-studded cast of the omnibus series, alongside A-listers such as Cha Seung-won, Han Ji-min and Uhm Jung-hwa, and veteran actresses like Kim Hye-ja and Go Doo-shim.
But for most viewers, Kim's return is the main draw to "Our Blues," his first TV series since 2016. His fans' expectations are high as they tune in for his comeback.
Teaser stills released ahead of its airing show Kim fully immersed in the role, his tanned muscles on display.
The first episode of the series will air on April 9.
