The production company for the new drama stated to Newsen, “It is true that we offered Nam Joo Hyuk a role in writer No Hee Kyung’s new drama. Nam Joo Hyuk is very happy about the offer, but because the synopsis and script are not complete yet, he is positively observing how things turn out. Nothing has been confirmed yet.”

The new work "Here" (working title) by screenwriter Noh Hee Kyung has completed its superb cast.


Apart from the story revolving around an NGO - an international non-profit non-governmental organization - the information about "Here" has still been kept confidential. However, as a new work of screenwriter Noh Hee Kyung, who created famous dramas conveying profound social messages, "Here" has soon received much attention and anticipation of the audience.


In the meantime, the cast of "Here" was revealed, promising to make the public more eagerly look forward to the drama. From Lee Byung Hun - Korea's top actor who is actively working in dramas and movies, Han Ji Min - the "reliable actress that worth watching" in any genres, Shin Min Ah - the girl who always shows her personality through diverse charisma, Bae Sung Woo - the actor adding depth to the work thanks to his genuine acting, to Nam Joo Hyuk - the guy winning the mass' hearts with mature image, all of them created a perfect combination in terms of acting ability as well as star quality.


Currently, it's still unknown about what characters the above actors will take in the drama.

Noh Hee-kyung’s new humanitarian drama announces stellar lineup

by tineybeanie

Shin Mina, Lee Byung-heon


According to the latest reports, Lee Byung-heon (Mr. Sunshine) and Han Ji-min (One Spring Night) have joined Noh Hee-kyung’s next drama, along with Shin Mina (Chief of Staff), Bae Sung-woo (Live), and Nam Joo-hyuk (Nurse Teacher Ahn Eun-young). Called HERE, the drama is about a humanitarian nonprofit NGO and the people that work there.


Other than its title and setting, there’s nothing that has been revealed. Everything has been kept under a tight seal of secrecy, which has provoked even more interest in this drama.

What is known is the amazing quality of the casting lineup. All powerhouses in their own right, these actors have featured in some of my favorite dramas and movies. And because of their long histories in the entertainment world, they’ve all had chances to work with each other in some capacity or another. Earlier this year, Nam Joo-hyuk and Han Ji-min starred in fantasy melo The Light in Your Eyes together. Lee Byung-heon and Han Ji-min both featured in period movie Age of Shadows, and earlier on in her career when she was a child actress, Han Ji-min played the younger counterpart to Lee Byung-heon’s lover in All In.


Likewise, Shin Mina and Lee Byung-heon also crossed paths very early in their respective careers in the drama Beautiful Days, which catapulted Lee Byung-heon into mainstream heartthrob status. More recently, Shin Mina and Bae Sung-woo were both in romantic comedy film My Love, My Bride, and finally, Nam Joo-hyuk and Bae Sung-woo starred together in award-winning historical film The Great Battle.

Just based on the actors and screenwriter, it looks like the drama is off to a great start. Filming is set to begin in early 2020.

Nam Joo-Hyuk, Han Ji-Min, Lee Byung-Hun & More Confirmed To Star In New Drama Together



Han Ji-Min, Nam Joo-Hyuk, Shin Min-Ah, Lee Byung-Hun

The stars have literally aligned for an upcoming drama that will take your breath away.


It has been confirmed that top South Korean actor Lee Byung-Hun, the dashing Nam Joo-Hyuk, the stunning Shin Min-Ah and charismatic actress, Han Ji-Min will be starring in a new drama together. On top of this already stellar list of stars, veterans such as critically-acclaimed actor, Metamorphosis' Bae Sung-Woo has also been confirmed to join the cast. 


The new drama is tentatively titled, Here, and revolves around an NGO, an international non-profit organization that works independently from the government. Details of the characters and plot has been kept top secret but it has been revealed that Noh Hee-Kyung will be the writer of this series.


Award-winning writer, Noh is most known for creating dramas with a profound storyline, that often offers a social message or reflects social issues that are prevalent today. 


She wrote the hit tearjerker drama in 2013 titled, It's Okay That's Love, starring Jo In-Sung, Gong Hyo-Jin and EXO's D.O. The drama was the talk of the town when it was released as the main plot revolves around mental issues such as schizophrenia, PTSD, genophobia and more.


Despite lukewarm results in terms of television ratings, the bold drama garnered praise from critics and lots of attention through social media platforms. Noh was also the pioneer of a micro-trend of Korean dramas with themes involving mental illness, such as Kill Me, Heal Me and Hyde, Jekyll, Me.


Noh's most recent work, the 2018 TV series called Live, follows the stories of police officers and the hardships that they had to overcome on the job. It starred Lee Gwang-Soo, Jung Yu-Mi and more talented actors giving stellar performances, helping the drama achieve one of the highest rated Korean dramas in cable television history.


Expectations are high for Noh's latest project, Here, especially after the announcement of such a blinding list of bright stars. Here is expected to be released late 2020. 

Meanwhile, you can catch Live and It's Okay That's Love on Netflix.

There has already been a lot of buzz about what part of society she will shed light on this time.


Other cast members include Shin Min-a, Bae Sung-woo and Nam Joo-hyuk.


Shooting will begin early next year.

Nam Joo Hyuk And Han Ji Min Share Thoughts On Working Together For 3rd Time

Oct 28, 2019
by U. Kim
Nam Joo Hyuk and Han Ji Min expressed how they feel about already having three confirmed projects together.

Han Ji Min and Nam Joo Hyuk first co-starred in JTBC’s “Radiant” earlier this year, and they recently wrapped up filming for their movie “Josee” (literal title) together. Next year, they will begin filming for their new drama “HERE” (tentative title) by screenwriter No Hee Kyung.

Han Ji Min shared, “We worked together in ‘Radiant’ as Hye Ja and Joon Ha, but it’s hard to say we were partners because we didn’t have very many scenes together. Because we’re working together project after project, it’s nice that we can reduce the awkward phase in the beginning when we start getting to know each other.”

She continued, “Next, we’ll be working together in screenwriter No Hee Kyung’s drama. A lot of other actors are starring in it as well. We’ll be telling the story of an NGO, which is something I’ve always always been interested in. I’m looking forward to seeing Nam Joo Hyuk’s new side, and it’s also a new challenge for me. We now have three projects together, and I’m receiving good energy [from him].”

Nam Joo Hyuk also revealed his thoughts on acting with Han Ji Min, saying, “There’s nothing else to say. It’s an honor, and it’s great. I’m very happy to be able to work with Han Ji Min and other great senior actors.”

That's what I'm thinking too. HJM with LBH and NJH with SMA.

I quite like Shin Min An and it makes more sense she’ll be paired with NJH (since SMA is almost as tall as LBH and k-dramas love height difference). But it’ll be quite unusual to watch NJH and HJM not being together onscreen since they left such a deep impression on me in Dazzling. I hope there won’t be a love triangle, or more like love square. Otherwise I might be rooting for a wrong couple  :dissapointed_relieved:

"K-dramas love height difference" lol:mrgreen:

They have a movie coming out soon with both of them as a pair so I'm good that they won't pair up in this drama. Indeed, they didn't have a lot of scenes together but they really left a big expression on us. 


Please, no love triangle or square too lol:skull:. It would be a disaster:sweatingbullets:.

I don`t particularly care about the couples in this drama (all the couples will be fine). I am sure No Hee Kyung will write a meaningful drama. All her characters are  well writen. I watched just two of her dramas so far (Live and Dear My Friends) but I became a fan of her writing. I can`t wait to see what she prepared for us this time. I like the cast but even if the actors were unkown for me, I would have watched this drama with great interest.

Looking Forward to the Dramas of 2020

Source: Sports Khan via HanCinema.net




There is a line of dramas featuring famous stars and famous productions lined up in 2020.


It's the end of the year, but the drama industry is preparing for next year's dramas. As pre-production becomes increasingly common, there are a number of works that have already been filmed. We take a look at dramas coming in 2020 according to actors, writers, and seasons.


- "This actor is a must-watch"


The actor decides the genre of the drama. Those with probability and visuals are getting ready to star in new upcoming dramas.


SBS's "Hyena" is a survival drama about lawyers who represent the top 1% high class society. Rather than the intelligent and rational aspects of the existing lawyer character, it will show a diverse range of human beings involved in their interests. In addition, the casting of Kim Hye-soo and Ju Ji-hoon makes the drama something to look forward to. JTBC's "Sisyphus: The Myth" cast Cho Seung-woo and Park Shin-hye almost right away. Aside from the fact that it's a sci-fi mystery drama, nothing else is known yet. Still, the drama is looked forward to thanks to the choice of the two actors.


JTBC's "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice" features Park Min-young and Seo Kang-joon. It's not about a 'prince on a white horse', but the simple and warm healing story of a man and a woman meeting at a rural independent bookstore is the driving point.


"HERE" starring Lee Byung-hun, Han Ji-min, Shin Min-ah, Bae Sung-woo and Nam Joo-hyuk is written by Noh Hee-kyeong, whose scriptwriting abilities have been proven numerous times.


- A credible production team




Just like a well-written scenario, the drama is a 'writer's work of art'. 2020 brings dramas from famous writers.


The most anticipated drama of all is, of course, Kim Eun-sook and SBS's "The King: Forever Sovereign", starring Lee Min-ho and Kim Go-eun. Despite the cold weather, they have started filming and are getting ready to meet viewers next year. "The King: Forever Sovereign" is a fantasy romance drama in which a deity has unleashed a demon unto the world of humans, and that demon has opened the door to a parallel world.


Writer Yang Hee-seong from MBC drama "Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo" and tvN drama "Familiar Wife", is attempting a very human-like weekend drama. "I've Been There Once" is the turbulent story of the Song family, beginning with divorce and ending up united in love and family, starring Chun Ho-jin, Lee Jung-eun, Oh Yoon-ah and others.


The writer of KBS's "Road to the Airport", Lee Sook-yeon, is coming out with tvN's "Half of a Half", a romantic drama about the relationship between an AI programmer and a recording engineer, starring Jung Hae-in, Chae Soo-bin and more.


TvN's "Hi Bye Mama" is a fantasy story about a Korean funeral custom called '49 days' and it is written by Kwon Hye-joo, who also wrote "Go Back Couple".


The book "Golden Hour", written by Professor Lee Kuk-jong, an authority on treating severe trauma in Korea, will also be reborn as a drama. Based on Professor Lee's vivid experiences, it is the talk of patients at the forefront of life and death. The drama is written by So Hyeon-kyeong and Only One, of dramas "My Daughter Seo-yeong" and "My Golden Life".



- Season 2, can't miss it




Due to the popularity of previous installments, a series of works to be produced for a season 2 will also appear. "Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim Season 2", which is set against the backdrop of Doldam Hospital and its real doctors, returns with Han Suk-kyu from the first season.


Another medical drama on its way is "A Wise Doctor's Life", directed by Sin Won-ho and written by Lee Woo-jeong-I. It tells the story of a hospital of doctors, nurses, and patients based on a hobby band made up of doctors. The cast so far are Jo Jung-suk, Yoo Yeon-seok, Kim Dae-myung and Jung Kyung-ho.


The second season of "Secret Forest" is coming out too. The cooperative story about a lonely prosecutor who doesn't feel any emotion and a just and warm detective is coming back this time as a story about the murder of a prosecutor and the truth behind it. "Secret Forest 2" is also led by Cho Seung-woo and Bae Doona.

I'll be honest.....I'm watching for Shin Min Ah and for the writer's drama. I like Lee Byung Hun  but not really fan of his. I like  Nam Joo Hyuk but Im not fan of his acting. He is good. He improved but still, I'd have wanted someone with a better range. Not a fan of Han Ji Min, I've seen her in some dramas. Last one with NJH ( w/c I didn't continue). If there is to be match couple. I think it should be Shin Min Ah and Lee Byung Hun. screen appeal and acting wise. I can't see SMA match with NJH especially after watching her with Lee Jung Jae in Chief of Staff/Aide. 


NJH is what 25 yrs old. He just needs to be partnered with someone of same age. Then again, this is about NGO and people who do voluntary work.  Maybe there won't be any romance.. or maybejust  slight one. I don't know it's weird if it becomes a like love story/couples story esp with the story plot.

I am huge fan of Han Ji Min and will definitely watch it. Already caught me in surprise that Shin Min Ah is also joining the drama.  I wanted them to be great sisters or girlfriends.  


Keke who knows, maybe Ji Min pair up with Bae Sung Woo instead??  I also think romance in not important here.  As the focus is about the process of campaigning by all these volunteers and their own personal hardships.
