The upcoming series “Let’s Look at the Sunset Holding Hands” is a melodrama featuring mid-life adults, a genre which has become relatively rare among the deluge of police thrillers in Korea recently, according to director Jung Ji-in.

Han Hye-jin stars as Nam Hyun-ju, a woman who discovers she is afflicted with a fatal hereditary brain tumor. In the last days of her life, she wavers between her architect husband, Kim Do-young, played by Yoon Sang-hyun, and her doctor, played by Kim Tae-hoon.

Yoon In-young stars as Shin Da-hye, an old flame of Nam’s husband who further complicates the precarious relationships.

A press conference for the show took place at the MBC headquarters in northwestern Seoul on Tuesday.

The show begins airing on MBC on Wednesday at 10 p.m.
