Grim reapers and bucket lists in A Week Before I Die

by Jenzy

What would you do with one week left to live? In TVING’s upcoming youth fantasy drama A Week Before I Die, Kim Min-ha (Pachinko) must decide how to make the most of her life when given a delayed death sentence from her personal grim reaper Gong Myung (Lovers of the Red Sky).

At only the tender age of twenty-four, Jung Hee-wan (Kim Min-ha) has no desire to live. Six years ago, her closest friend and first love Kim Ram-woo (Gong Myung) died in an accident, and that tragedy led her down a road of isolation and apathy to where we meet her present day living a life of a recluse.

 

But her bubble gets burst one day when a grim reaper shows up at her door, and not just any grim reaper either — it’s Ram-woo back from the dead. He’s here to tell her that she has one week left to live, but she can end her life peacefully anytime before then if she says his name three times.

Overwhelmed at their reunion and terrified at the idea of losing him again, Hee-wan refuses to say Ram-woo’s name. So Ram-woo changes his approach by having her write out a bucket list of all the things she wants to do before she dies, intending to help her come out of her shell with happy moments in her last days. As the two work together to check off Hee-wan’s list, they’ll rekindle their old friendship, uncover secrets from their past, and learn the true meaning of life and love.

Based on the novel of the same name by Seo Eun-chae and with Noh Deok (Glitch) as creator, TVING’s A Week Before I Die is directed by filmmaker Choi Ha-na (Citizen Pane) and adapted into a screenplay by Song Hyun-ju and Jang In-jung. It’s scheduled to be released sometime in 2025.

Based on a novel, “A Week Before I Die” is a fantasy romance drama that tells the story of 24-year-old Jung Hee Wan (Kim Min Ha), who is severely withdrawn socially and doesn’t have the will to live. One day, her childhood friend and first love Kim Ram Woo (Gong Myung) appears in front of her as a grim reaper a week before her death. Kim Ram Woo then shakes up Jung Hee Wan’s lethargic daily life by completing an extraordinary bucket list together in her final week.

Director Noh Deok, director Choi Ha Na, and writers Song Hyun Joo and Jang In Jeong were present at the script reading along with cast members Gong Myung, Kim Min Ha, Oh Woo Ri, Jung Gun Joo, Seo Young Hee, and Go Chang Suk.

As soon as the script reading began, the actors immersed themselves in their characters and delivered passionate performances.

Gong Myung takes on the role of Kim Ram Woo, a grim reaper who appears in front of Hee Wan six years after his death. Ram Woo shakes up Hee Wan’s lethargic daily life by completing an extraordinary bucket list together in Hee Wan’s final week before her death.

Gong Myung impressed with his portrayal of Kim Ram Woo. He perfectly captured the different sides of the character of Kim Ram Woo, from his shy high school days to appearing again by Hee Won’s side as a Grim Reaper.a-week-before-i-die-2.jpg

 
Kim Min Ha portrayed a wide spectrum of emotions in her role as Jung Hee Wan, who goes from being a mischievous high school girl to a helpless 24-year-old. Viewers’ curiosity is heightened about how the once lively and playful Hee Won ended up becoming a lethargic college student and the connection between her and grim reaper Ram Woo.

Learning life and love from A Week Before a Die

by tccolb

a-week-before-i-die-1.jpg

 

Although production is still in its early stages, TVING’s fantasy romance A Week Before I Die gives us a sneak peek with the first script reading stills, led by leads Gong Myung (Lovers of the Red Sky) and Kim Min-ha (Pachinko).

Adapted from a novel by the same title (authored by Seo Eun-chae), we meet Kim Min-ha in the role of Jung Hee-wan during a dark chapter, having lost her smile and the will to live. Enter Gong Myung playing our heroine’s first love Kim Ram-woo, who tragically died back in high school.

 

Now a grim reaper, Ram-woo re-appears in Hee-wan’s life to foretell her death in one week’s time and offer to help fulfill her bucket list items in the remaining days. We then follow their thoughtful journey as our pair re-connect, allowing them to discover truths about the past and realize the depths of love and life.

Rounding out their friend group of four, we have Jung Geon-joo (The Secret Romantic Guesthouse) playing Ram-woo’s other half Lee Hong-seok, who is described as a board game addict and former competitive swimmer. Hee-wan’s soulmate and bestie, on the other hand, is Oh Woo-ri (Welcome to Samdal-ri) taking on the part of Yoon Tae-kyung.

In supportive roles, we also have the adorable and good-natured Go Chang-seok (Glitch) playing Hee-wan’s dad, and Seo Young-hee (Twinkling Watermelon) playing Ram-woo’s gentle but strong mom.

Directed by filmmaker Choi Ha-na (More than Family) with scripts co-written by Song Hyun-joo and Jang In-jung, TVING’s A Week Before I Die will be releasing next year in 2025.
