Namkoong Min will play the role of Lee Je-ha, a film director who decides to make a movie featuring a real terminally ill patient as the main character. Lee Je-ha, who made his commercial film debut with a self-written script and swept the film festivals that year, earned the tagline “Genre is Lee Je-ha”. However, he is now living a barren and mundane life without a next project.

The drama will be directed by Lee Jung-heum, who previously worked on JTBC’s “Inspector Koo”, SBS’s “Nobody Knows”, “Falsify” and “I’ve Got My Eye on You”. The script is written by writers Han Ga-eun and Kang Kyung-min, with production by Beyond J.

Namkoong Min solidified his status as a “melodrama master” with MBC’s “My Dearest”, which concluded in November last year. He won the Grand Prize at the MBC Drama Awards and the Best Actor – Television award at the 60th Baeksang Arts Awards for his performance in “My Dearest”.

Known for ensuring both ratings and buzz with every project he participates in, Namkoong Min is expected to deliver a heart-wrenching melodrama that will touch viewers’ hearts in “Our Movie”.
