Choi Woo-shik and Park Bo-young film a Melo Movie

Production has begun for the upcoming Netflix original Melo Movie, featuring a healing romance set in the titular melo genre. Centered around the youthful dreams of individuals in the creative industry, the drama will portray their journey towards mending the wounds of the past and painting a brighter future.

Choi Woo-shik (A Killer Paradox) stars as the supporting actor-turned-film critic Go Gyeom, who eats, sleeps, and breathes film. If Gyeom had forty-eight hours in a day, he’d spend every last second watching movies. Given his proclivity for cinema, it’s practically a stroke of fate that brings him and a peculiarly-named individual together on a film project.

That person is Kim Mu-bi, or Kim “Movie,” played by Park Bo-young (Daily Dose of Sunshine). Having followed in her father’s footsteps out of curiosity towards her namesake, Mu-bi has since risen through the ranks and become a film director. As someone who prefers to stay out of the spotlight, Mu-bi’s career has been characterized by unassuming competence — that is, until Gyeom joins the picture.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have Lee Jun-young (May I Help You) as the idealistic dreamer Hong Shi-joon. Harboring a lifelong dream of becoming an acclaimed composer, Shi-joon believes he possesses the talents of a natural-born genius. However, reality tells a different tale, given he’s still a no-name songwriter. Still, his sunny optimism and quirky personality keep him upbeat and unfazed.

Rounding out our creative quartet, Jeon So-ni (Our Blooming Youth) plays the successful scenario writer Sohn Joo-ah. She may have grown up treading a smooth path and wanting for nothing, but she’s about to throw a spanner into the works — she’s the ex-girlfriend of both Gyeom and Shi-joon. Uh-oh, this is going to get thorny. Still, there’s Kim Jae-wook (Death’s Game) in the cast list, which means I can’t contain my excitement and expectations from soaring sky-high.

Directed by Oh Chung-hwan (Castaway Diva) with scripts written by Lee Na-eun (Our Beloved Summer), Melo Movie has yet to set a release date.
