The last time Kim Rae-won was seen in a romantic film was way back in 2003 with “My Little Bride”. For Gong Hyo-jin, though she reigns supreme on the genre on television, her last romantic outing in a film was in 2013 with “You are More than Beautiful”, having concentrated on building a completely opposite image of herself on-screen than the one she is loved for in television dramas. The project that finally makes the two stars return to the genre is director Kim Han-gyul’s debut film “The Most Ordinary Romance”.


A story about a man who is still in love with his ex-girlfriend and the ex-girlfriend who is currently is in the middle of a rough parting with her current boyfriend. The three of them are wounded by love.

Though this is the first time the two will be seen in a film together, both Kim Rae-won and Gong Hyo-jin both featured in the k-drama “Snowman” back in 2003. This is the second release of 2019 for both after “Long Live the King” and “Hit-and-Run Squad” respectively. “The Most Ordinary Romance” also stars Kang Ki-young (“On Your Wedding Day”), Jung Woong-in (“The Prison”) and Jang So-yeon (“The Wailing”) and is expected to released in South Korean cinemas in October, 2019.
