DARA and KANG SEUNG YOON to Play Lead Roles in Web Series “We’ve Broken Up”


DARA, a member of 2NE1, and KANG SEUNG YOON of WINNER have been cast as leads in a Web series.

The Web series entitled “We’ve Broken Up” is based on a popular Web cartoon of the same title on Naver, a Korean portal website. The series features college sweethearts who broke up but have to live in a house together, while depicting uncertainties faced by many young people these days.

DARA is to play the role of Noh Woori, a job-seeker and alpha woman, who has to live in the same house with her ex-boyfriend. And KANG SEUNG YOON has been cast to play Ji Won-young, a vocalist of an indie band who does late-night part-time work for his band and music.

DARA has recently played a lead role in another Web series “Doctor Ian” and her acting has been well-received by the public. KANG SEUNG YOON also starred in MBC’s sitcom “High Kick, Short-Legged Counterattack” in 2012, where he demonstrated his potential as an actor.

Along with DARA and KANG SEUNG YOON, models who belong to YG K-Plus are also to appear in the series. Kang Seung-hyun, a world-class top model, will play the role of a beautiful and insightful director at a top-notch record label. And Jang Ki-yong has been cast to play Seo Hyun-woo, a warm-hearted man who likes Woori.

“This Web series is not just a simple love story,” said a production official. “It also addresses the difficulties faced by young people these days, including unemployment. We’ll do our best to produce a quality Web series now that this series is drawing a lot of attention and boasts the best possible production crew and cast.”

The Web series “We’ve Broken Up” is jointly planned and produced by YG K-Plus, CJ E&M Digital Studio and Story Plant, and will be jointly directed by Kim Yong-wan, who directed “Love Cells,” a popular Web series with more than 1 million views. The filming of the series will start this month and the show will be made available at the beginning of June.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on lifestyle.

  2. I wonder when they will be able to finish this one? Is the manga complete in Korea? Coz the english scanlations are just still on 2 chapters. So are they going to do the first two chapters then wait for the mangaka to finish publish the rest of the chapters?

  3. The background is beautiful, ofcourse it’s Dara, but i can’t read the text plainly. Its painful.

  4. Oh my gosh! I’ve just read the “we broke up” manga and it’s so funny! I love the story! Kudos to the writer (Ryu Chaelin)! Congrats Dara!

  5. im so excited!! i think they fit well with their roles 😀

  6. I checked out the webtoon even if it is in korean and I think the main girl fits Dara ….however since the story has kissing and bed scenes I kind of feel that it would be better if Dara’s partner was someone older like T.O.P. or Jung Il Woo.

  7. this pairing is weird imo.. i was hoping someone more mature..

  8. Imagine if they sing a duet for their web drama OST. Can someone make a campaign so YG can consider?? Haha 🙂

    There are four episodes, namely episodes 6, 7, 8 and 9, of “Dr. Ian” that have not reach 100,000 views yet. Although two episodes, namely 6 and 9, are nearing the mark. May we campaign for a re-viewing for above said episodes in the next few days as we wait for the next web-drama? Thank you!

  10. more acting drama for dara unnie!

  11. @ysabelle I agree that a BIGBANG member is a better choice (especially TOP because of his acting experience). But I think BIGBANG is preparing for a comeback this year. Some thinks it’s their last one with all the members together because some will start their mandatory military service. It would take a while for all of them to perform together.

    However, there are some talks that YG is planning for some members to film a movie or drama and have it released while they’re on their military duties. Who knows… maybe a film with Dara as the lead girl?? keekee that would be exciting to watch 🙂

  12. whattttt????……awkwardddddd!!!,,,, why him??? how can i watch them knowing the fact that Kang seung yoon is really her lovely dongsaeng!!!!! if it is YG project….then why not TOP??? it’s better to be him… =(

    Thanks for this blog i can follow updates of dara noona, she deserves a lot of projects, kind hearted and humble noona, fighting. Excited much on the next project… YOhoooo

    I was sad with her first web drama because her acting was so convincing that I cried along with her. I’m excited for this new web drama and hope it will be more light,more happy moments and maybe some kissing and hugging. hehehe
    This will give Dara and Kang Seungyoon a chance to show their talents and chemistry where we will forget they are YG family, but a real ex-couple and the problems they face. Dara Kang Seungyoon Fighting!

    I was so stoked upon knowing that there will be yet another webdrama for her! How amazing it is for all of us right! We have been waiting for this for far too long and to see her get projects one after another just makes me so thank ful. Maybe this is why YG didnt want her to focus on acting but on 2NE1 instead since he knows that if Dara ventures into it then she’d become so busy that she might be stressed out from both acting activities and singer ones. Am i the only one who kina felt awkward upon knowing that Kang Seungyoon will be her partner. I mean i love the guy to bits since i am a very big fan of Winner. I dont have problems regardinbg the age. Its just that i see YG as a family so i just felt slightly uncomfortable with them having or going to possibly have kissing scenes & bed scenes. Right now im conflicter but lets see, ill support the Drama either way cause my two lovies are leading in it. So damn excited!!!!Woohoo!

  16. congrats dara! i’m so happy for you! baby steps indeed 🙂

    and the guy is 10 years her junior! keekee but no matter, dara can easily pass as 19 years old anyway 😉
